Windows will not start Toshiba Satellite M45
Posted on 2008-06-19
I have a Toshiba Satellite M45 which will not boot. When I start the computer I get a message saying Windows did not start properly, which could be due to software or hardware installed. It says we suggest you start with the most recent version to succesfully work, which it shows as normal Windows bootup (FYI, this is Windows XP). When I choose that option I get the Windows XP screen for all of about a second and then it goes back to the "Windows did not start properly..." page. I have tried also booting on Safe Mode, etc. and the same result. I tried using the ultimate boot cd and I can hear the cd drive spinning and I still get the same "Windows did not start properly..." page. One thing of note, this computer came with the Home theatre option, i.e. you can watch DVD's without starting Windows, and that works. Any ideas much appreciated.
