I was recovering previously deleted documents with "Smart Fat Recovery" and maybe accidently “wiped” a window file!!
On Boot, the Toshiba screen comes up, followed by the Windows screen which dit dit dits across approx ¾ of the way, then Windows screen states “Setup is being restared….”
This is followed by a blue screen with a 1inch black border, followed by a black screen with cursor (safe mode??)
Then a mini-second flash of error message
And back to Boot with Toshiba logo etc.
My TOSHIBA SATELITTE 2595CDS laptop is running Win2K pro.
The laptop is set to auto logon.
I don’t have a recovery disk, do have the original Toshiba setup disk (which originally ran Win98), have set of Boot diskettes and 3 month old RegScrub registry save.
I’ve tried to recover thru Safe mode, Boot diskettes, and Win 2K disk, through all the perambulations. As soon as the laptop tries to load windows, I am back to the cycling.
Inet research suggests that the following files may be missing:
but without knowing which folder to look in (even with Win2K’s almost Dos), I haven’t been able to check for them. Besides I’ve forgotten what little Dos I used to know, with which I might copy these files (to which folders??)
Does anyone know how to pause at the error screen – it flashes too fast to hit the pause or Windows button, and holding down shift or delete or shft ctrl del does not get me out of auto logon.
I'd prefer not to do a chkdsk which would nullify any corruped files I was originally trying to rexcue. Thanks!!
