At what point in the startup process do you get the message?
(Toshiba Splash screen, Windows Loading bar, logon screen)
First thing to try.
Press F8 immediately after the "Toshiba" POST splashscreen.
This should bring up a list of options.
- Repair your computer
- Safe mode
- Safe mode with networking
- Safe mode with command prompt
- Enable boot logging
- Enable low resolution video (640 × 480)
- Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)
- Directory services restore mode
- Debugging mode
- Disable automatic restart on system failure
- Disable Driver Signature Enforcement
- Start Windows normally
There are two we are interested in at the moment.
The first thing I would like you to try is "Last Known Good Configuration
This will attempt to start the computer using the last sucessful Driver profile and registry. This may not work in your case, but it is worth a shot.
The second thing to use is the "Repair Your Computer" selection.
Note that this option may not be available to you, but I believe that it is available on Toshiba laptops. This will take you into the Recovery Menu. You want to select "Startup Repair". Startup Repair will automatically scan your install looking for issues that are keeping Windows from loading. The computer may restart during this process.
Please, let us know how you make out.
