I have a Toshiba A135-S4527 laptop with Windows Vista on it. I can easily start it in Safe Mode. If I try to start it in Regular Mode it looks like it's trying to boot but it never gets to the desktop (after hours and hours of trying).
I've tried sfc /scannow in Safe Mode. It said that there were some things that were unrepairable. Also, in Safe Mode with Networking, I cannot get the wireless to give me an internet connection. It connects to my router, but no internet.
All I'm trying to do is a System Recovery so I can set it back to it's original state. I tried using F8 to get to the Repair Your Computer option. When I do this, for about 10 seconds it looks like it's trying to load Windows, then it goes to a blank screen. The computer is still on, but there is no indication that there is any hard drive activity.
Besides buying Recovery Disks, what can I do at this point?
