Hello everyone

I have a second hand Toshiba satellite A200 that will not load into windows. It just goes into installing update 3 of 3 and restarts. I have tried safe mode but it just gets to \Windows\system32\drivers\crcdisk.sys and stops there. I really need some help because this is the computer Inuse for retrieving video from my model plane

Cheers,
hman

In order to fix a problem like this you would need a Vista Install Disk? Then do a startup repair or System Restore. If you do not have a install disk you can get the files off the drive with either a linux distro like Puppy or a WinPE disk you can build on a Windows 7 computer. After that you may be able to do a factory reset.

 

You can also follow the steps here to create a Vista Install iso.

Make sure you test your disk using something like HDAT2 to make sure you don't have a hardware problem.


Have you tried turning it off and on again?

It seems to have been taking about 6 hrs and says finalising file restore. I don't have a vista disk though so what can I do? I also cannot acces my HDD because windows will not open.

6 hours to do a system restore is too long. zcomputerwiz suggestion that it mat be a hardware problem  seems correct. The file system on the drive could also be corrupted. If you have a Windows 7 computer, download and run Aoemi PE builder. It will create a WinPE disk and let you recover the data to an External Drive or USB flash drive.

If you do not have a Windows 7 computer then download Parted Magic here. Burn the iso file using isoburner or Imgburn if you have it to create a bootable CD. If you do not have a CD/DVD you can use Rufus with the iso file of Parted Magic to create a bootable USB flash drive. Attach your flash drive and run Rufus. (Edit: added link to Rufus)  Make sure your USB flash drive is in the first box. Select MBR as a partition scheme and leave everything else as it is shown. In the dropdown box that shows FreeDos, select Isoimage and click the small icon next to it. Browse to the iso file. Select Start.

 

Double Click the File Manager on the desktop and browse your hard drive. You can copy files to the Flash Drive that has Parted Magic or to another External Drive. Using Parted Magic you can also check the hard drive by clicking the Drive Health Icon (GsmartControl) on the desktop of Parted Magic.
