Recovery fails on Toshiba Satellite MS Vista laptop
Posted on 2009-04-22
Toshiba Satellite with MS Vista: It used to freeze as soon as you login to windows. Explorer wont let you do anything, same problem in the safemode so couldn't do much about it. Tried restoring but no restore points were available.
So I tried system recovery to the factory settings from the hidden partition. Pressed F8 and selected "Protect My PC" and went for complete restore to factory settings option.
It runs fine, but at the end whe it is on the white screen with a message "Completing installation, please do not shutdown" it stays forever and goes in what appears to be the sleep mode. And when you reboot it gets stuck at the same point. Tried running the recovery again, but no luck.
I haven't got any recovery disks that came with it. What can be causing this and how should I go about resolving this?
