URGENT: Windows XP takes forever to boot (and fails...)
Posted on 2006-06-01
Can anyone please help me with this problem: I have a Windows XP Tablet PC on Toshiba Portege, and it does not boot: when I press the on button, it takes me to the Windows startup screen (with the scrolling blue thing on the bottom), and stays there for many minutes, and finally, a blue screen (BSOD) with the cryptic "Hard Error" shows up. This happened after I installed some webcam software, though it might be a virus. I cannot find a CD for this tablet, and there is NO CD/DVD drive for this tablet PC (because of space limitations, they didn't put the CD/DVD drive in there)...the only way to get external media is through jumpdrive. There are information that I MUST recover over the weekend for Monday's production. So ANY help will be greatly appreciated!!!
