Re: Satellite A500 - Windows error recovery

I have a problem with my laptop

When I restart my laptop, it tends to be stuck on this windows error recovery screen. It gives me two options
(1) Lauch Startup Repair
(2) start Windows normally

Tried both, it turns off, reboots that it ends on the same screen over and over again. Tried to access it via safe mode, nothing helps. tried to fix it through windows disk 7, did not work. tried last good configuration, not good either.

It's the screen that I always end up and it does not go further.

Please can someone show me a few guidelines as to how can I do to fix this problem. I'm a freshman in College, I have no money to take it to a professional. That's why I try to fix it myself as I have urgent need.

Thank you in advance.



Hmm, not easy, but in my opinion it s something wrong with properly installed Windows OS and HDD recovery doesn't work

You have the Toshiba Recovery disk?
If Yes, you can use it to restore the original settings windows. Just boot from that disk and follow the instructions on the screen, everything that s! :)

  • Question - loop on Satellite L350-170 Windows error recovery

    Toshiba Satellite L350-170 - Intel Pentium Dual Core T3200 2.00 GHz, 2 GB, 250 GB, 17 "TFT, DVDSM, VHP

    My wife bought three weeks ago. Use of the lamp. Everything works fine, until a dialogue of "Startup Repair" appeared. Since then, the machine starts.

    Machine goes into "Windows Error Recovery" immediately after the Toshiba start screen and has the following options;
    (1) run the Startup Repair tool
    (2) start Windows normally

    Option 2 results in a blank screen and finally goes back to the screen "Windows Error Recovery".

    Option 1 has the reboot dialog box;

    "Your computer was unable to start.
    Startup Repair is checking your system for problems... »

    At this point, the Toshiba laptop enters an endless loop.

    So what I do now? There is no disc came with the laptop, so I can't reinstall the operating system. The dealer (Comet) is less useful and don't know no refund or Exchange for a defective product.

    Can someone please!

    Try this:

    Press F8 immediately after that the laptop has been turned on.
    Then choose the first option called fix my computer.
    Then a new window should open and there you can choose the option called Toshiba recovery.

    Please note then this procedure would start the Toshiba HDD recovery and the BONE to relocate again. This would be to format the whole HARD drive and set the OS to the factory settings.

    In my eyes, you can use this procedure for recovery of HARD drive, or you can try to reinstall the OS using the Toshiba recovery disc.
    Both lead to the same results

    Looks like something was wrong with the recovery process and now Windows may start t. Maybe something messed with the registry or a few important Windows files, so I think that the only option to get rid of it using the Toshiba recovery disc. It will wipe the entire HARD disk and restore the factory settings, normally it should work.

    Just so enter the Toshiba Recovery disk and follow the instructions on the screen. Windows will be reinstalled, and you get back to factory settings. :)

    Hello mtb123,

    1. have you tried the steps suggested by Srinivas R in the previous post to make a startup on your computer repair using the Windows installation disc?

    2. you remember what changes you made to the computer before you start this error?

    I suggest that you access the system recovery options using a Windows Vista installation disc and do a startup repair and if this fails, you can do a restore of the system from the Windows recovery environment.

    You can see the previous post of Srinivas R to verify the information on the system restore.

    Thank you

  • Vista 64 Windows - stuck in the windows error recovery loop. don't go to safe mode, does not recognize the recovery disc.

    Gateway dx 4200-ub001a

    quadruple-heart, 6 GB of ram. No hardware problem, that I can find.
    restarts just constant return to the windows error recovery screen.
    get a blue screen saying change the bios if it continues to happen, but nothing specific. Impossible to get
    BIOS screens in any case. nothing takes me out of the loop, I can understand.

    See if you can load (using F10 or F12) a free Diagnostics, bootable from here:

    If this does not work, then try F2 to enter the BIOS.
    Together, the boot order so that the CD/DVD is first, then try to run the diagnostics bootable from here and free:

    If this does not work, then you need to try another CD/DVD drive (or take it to a shop for an estimate).

    Good luck!

  • Windows error recovery vista

    I have an Acer Aspire 6929g with Vista.

    Last night I turned on my laptop and I forgot about it, it was not plugged in then the battery is dead.
    Today, I turned it on and windows error recovery is there.
    I tried to launch launch repair but also to start windows normally. Both options present some loading screens and then resumed on windows error reappears.
    I followed another forum and typed F8 to access the menu restart to safe mode options.
    I tried all the safe mode and a few other options on this screen, but I finally get back to windows error recovery.
    I have not all disks to restart.
    Any other suggestions?
    The laptop is 3 years old.


    With an Acer you would normally press Alt + F10 to start recovery to factory settings process, if no disk came with it for purchase.

    And a password for this process, it is normally of six zeros.

    Be warned; all data will be lost when reinstalling.

    See you soon.

  • computer keeps coming back to Windows Error Recovery

    Original title: my computer will not exceed Windows Error Recovery, it just goes back to the same page

    I have a Dell Inspiron 531, Windows Vista, it was closed and when it is restarted it went to Windows error recovery. If I select start windows normally or start the repair, it cancels the same screen.


    1st thing to try is a restoration of the system in safe mode

    Windows Vista

    Using the F8 method:

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. When the computer starts, you will see your computer hardware are listed. When you see this information begins to tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theBoot Options Advanced Windows Vista.
    3. Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
    5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
    6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.

    I tried to boot using the DVD included with the computer, reinstall after pressing f12 to boot from the cd/dvd, it gave me the ability to "Repair computer" but is not. In fact I are entered in the comand prompt and ran a chkdsk/f with no result. I tried all the other recovery, repair choice but given the result.

    If I press f8 and select Safe mode, it don't go there but will take me to the same window "Windows Error Recovery".

    The 'install' mode has the 'upgrade' off function and it is said that it works only with windows.
    I can't do a clean reinstall without losing my daughter work... any suggestions?




    Either yourself or a store should remove the HDD and it slave in a system that works to see if the data can be recovered from him. The error message indicates a corrupt installation volume rarely, this can be fixed without deletion and recreation of the volume (and doing so will lose all data currently on the disk). Once the data was retrieved from the Vista installation will have to be redone from scratch.

    What is the problem and how can I fix this so it doesn't happen or is this normal with Vista.

    Hi SouthernDixieCowgirl,

    This would happen if the driver graphics card on the computer is damaged or needs to be updated.

    You will need to update the drivers to display on the computer card by visiting the manufacturer of the card or the computer manufacturer's website and check if it works.

    Updated a hardware driver that is not working properly ' t-work correctly


    Also, make sure that you install drivers chipset update by contacting the manufacturer of the computer.

    I hope this helps!

    Here's how:
    To open the System Recovery Options menu using a system repair disc or a Windows vista installation disc
    If your system is damaged and cannot access the menu system on your computer Recovery Options, you can access it by using Windows vista installation or a repair system created disc drive previously.
    To use this method, you need to restart (boot) your computer using the disk.
    a. Insert the disc.
    b. restart your computer using the power button on the computer.
    c. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
    d. If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or a DVD, see the documentation provided with your computer.
    f. choose your language settings, and then click Next.
    g. If you use the Windows installation disc, click on repair your computer.
    h. Select the Windows installation you want to repair, and then click Next.
