A couple of weeks ago, I was using my laptop to play a game. It crashed and had to be restarted, saying that there was a file missing from the windows file. I would restart a few times, wouldn't work. Two days later, restarted and worked ok for 2-3 days, then it stopped. It would show the Toshiba logo, check for a disc, then give me a screen that says "windows was not shut down properly. Do you want to work in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with prompts, last good know configuation, start normally". No matter what option i clicked, it would try to start, then a blue screen that is on the screen for a split second, would start up again.
I tried to use my recovery disc but it would freeze up as soon as it started and had to be restarted. A few friends suggested that I reformat my laptop, so I borrowed my friend's windows xp disk to reinstall it. Worked fine. I then used my recovery disc. Worked fine until yesterday. My laptop froze so I restarted it. Its going back to the toshiba logo, "windows was not shut down properly" screen, but not reading the windows xp disc in it.
It's a Toshiba a65-s125 laptop.
Intel® MobileCeleron Processor 2.8 GHz

Any help would be appriecated. Thank you
