A60 Windows XP does not start

When XP does not start, he spends just continually rebooting.
None of the options to restore the last known good configuration or from different modes of security work.
The error message is:-
The Microsoft Knowledge base says that XP CD-ROM to access the Recovery Console is necessary before running chkdsk/r, but because XP was installed by Toshiba OEM factory, is not available.
Can someone guide me to a solution.

Hi Dave,.

If you don't already have a bootable CD, then you will need to create one (using another PC of course). Try to Google for "Ultimate Boot CD". It contains many tools and utilities and can even be bought if you don't have the means to burn your own version.

You will need the means to back up your data once you have access to your HARD disk, although you can see as you drive is inaccessible in any case. This will depend on exactly what the problem is with him.

To boot from the CD (without changing your BIOS) Toshiba have a shortcut. Simply hold down the 'C' key while turning on your laptop and the device will try to boot from the CD-ROM. It also works with the recovery CD.

Good luck

  • Windows XP does not start. Can I boot Windows from a disk so that I can recover the data?

    Windows XP does not start. Can I boot Windows from a disk so that I can recover the data? This should be a CD because it doesn't have a floppy disk on my laptop drive. It is maybe that my hard drive has begun to fail and therefore cannot locate XP startup files. I can not start using one of the other methods of starting for example. Safe mode. If I can recover the data, I can then reload Windows and check the surface of the disc etc etc. Thank you all for your comments. Steve

    Lately, I'm leaning toward the Hiren's BootCD you can download here:


    On the left, click on download, scroll down, choose the most recent version

    The download link is a little hard to see.  It is at the bottom of the page, above the drop for older versions and looks like this (click this component to download the ZIP file):

    Direct HTTP mirror + Torrent, Torrent Magnet

    Click the "Live HTTP Mirror" link to start the download and save the ZIP file on your desktop of somewhere that you can remember.

    The ZIP file is large, so the download will take probably some time to complete.  Then unzip the download to extract theHirens.BootCD.ISO file that will be used to create your new bootable CD.

    Create a bootable CD. ISO file is not the same as simply copying the. File ISO onto a blank CD.  You must use software that includes how to burn a. ISO to a CD to create a bootable CD.

    File ZIP the Hiren is the file BurnToCD.cmd that you can double-click to launch it.  The BurnToCD.cmd will use the file BurnCDCC.exe to burn the. ISO file onto a blank CD using your existing CD burner.  You can also use your own burning software as long as your software is able to create a bootable CD. ISO file.  More modern burning programs can create a bootable CD. ISO image.  Create a CD from an ISO image bootable is not the same as just the file on a CD burning.

    If you need a simple and CD burning, this is a free software popular software:


    Here are some instructions for ImgBurn:


    It would be a good idea to test your new bootable CD on a computer running.

    You may need to adjust the computer BIOS settings to use the CD-ROM drive as the first device to boot instead of the hard drive.
    These adjustments are made before Windows tries to load.  If you miss it, you will need to restart the system again.

    When starting on the Hiren's CD, you will see a menu of options.  Choose Mini XP.

    It will appear while Windows is loading and you will be presented with a desktop computer that has the look and feel of the interface of Windows Explorer, you are already accustomed to using.  You will feel at home.

    Using the Mini XP, you can access the Internet, maneuver around your system, copy files, replace the files, run the scans for malware, etc.  There are dozens of free and useful tools included in the CD that can be used to repair your system, or copy files to another device such as a USB device or an external drive if drop in trying to repair your system.

    If you want to see if you can fix your system, describe what is happening when you try to start and to answer these questions:

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, MSE, Comodo, etc..

    You have a true bootable XP installation CD (it is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

  • Windows Vista does not start upward, with success since the closure complete

    Hello world

    I actually had this problem for a long time, but I'm just now to a point where I'm ready to take a lead in fixing it.

    I can't identify when it started, but Windows Vista does not start upward, with success of a full stop. He gets to the screen where, in general, the green bars will travel across the screen, but the green bars will not come. The screen looks dim and sits there, with the text of the copyright of Microsoft Corporation. So, after not having on the mound, I have to manually shut down the computer by holding down the power button. When I try to start again, told me to go through the Startup Repair tool. If I jump the repair, I just have to meet the same problem - a computer that will not go beyond the screen "green bar".

    So, I do the Startup Repair, and told me what I do for the restoration of the system. Windows starts normally after the restoration.

    Don't forget, this happens from a full stop. To remedy this, I just never completely shut down my computer. I left running and back just at the beginning of the day. The computer may start restart, it just may not start with a full stop.

    Given the start of repair takes, literally, around 4 or 5 hours of full stops complete, accidental or power outages are a nightmare, I am obliged to wait 5 hours to get access to the computer. Fortunately, I have my laptop.

    If someone has encountered this? I saw people talking about the loop of startup repair, but that's not the point, I have. I have yet to see any discussion of my specific problem.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Windows Vista does not start, turns to a blue screen error 2203

    original title: Windows Vista does not start, turns to a blue screen HELP PLEASE!

    Help, please! So I'm panicking here, just yesterday, I tried to download the update to Itunes, and it did not work. So I followed the instructions and uninstalled the program first, but one of the applications does not uninstall correctly. I thought I could just substitute with the update and replace. The error code was 2203.

    So I thought it was right after the download all itunes thing, and when I came back to check on the download, the screen turned to this black thing with words on this subject. I decided to force closing down by pressing the power button. Now everytime I turn on the computer, it leads to the screen saying 'windows is loading files', then this blue screen with a very large arrow (the mouse). I tried pressing the F11 key and stuff, but I have no idea what to do. PLEASE REPLY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, REALLY NEED A COMPUTER!

    Vista recovery media obtain and/or use the Partition Recovery Vista on your computer to the factory settings .

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.


    In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

    Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

    Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.


    Also ask them if it is possible to do the recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.

    They will tell you how to do this.

    Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.

    Turn Windows Defender on or off the information on the link above of Microsoft.

    And also read this:

    If you have Microsoft Security Essentials, AVG, McAfee, Norton, etc. installed, they have a conflict with Windows Defender, or turn it off.
