I'm sorry to hear about your issue. We will try to help you resolve this as soon as possible.
- Please understand we are all volunteers and we are not here all the time.
- Sometimes it may be a extended amount of time to get back to you. If it has been
more then 3 days please shoot me a PM and I will try to get back to you quickly
- Please do the following and supply the requested information as needed. If you
don't understand my instructions please ask and I will try to explain them
clearer for you.
- Do not attempt any steps unless instructed or ask before to
make sure they will not cause any further issues.
Below are the instructions to enter the Recovery Partition and reload your system. Please understand you will loose all your data doing this so if there is anything you want to save let me know before doing this.
To access the recovery partition do the following...
Power off the laptop.
Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears.
Start tapping the zero key repeatedly at this point.
Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears.
The screen should flash HDD RECOVERY MODE for a second and then it will load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.
Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software.

If the system is booting to the cdrom first then the hard drive and anything on it has no bearing on the problem then.

If it goes past that then you have missed it. Usually it is the Delete key but it could be any other F key.
Check in the upper right or lower right of the Toshiba screen.

(Click to consult the online Win XP Resource Kit article.)
The kernel mode I/O subsystem attempted to mount the boot volume and it failed. This error also might occur during an upgrade to Win XP on systems that use higher throughput ATA disks or controllers with incorrect cabling. In some cases, your system might appear to work normally after you restart.

To check what's going on it's imperative that you get hold of an XP installation CD (not your recovery). Try to boot with the CD. If you succeed you will probably (not necessarily) get a message "press any key to continue ...). Do that and let the computer load drivers. At the end you will get 3 options. Choosr "press R for recovery console". Do that . When for XP installation press 1. When asked for password type the password and press Enter. Press Enter if there is no password. At the prompt that opens now type chkdsk /r and press Enter. Now let the process run without interruption even if it takes 2 hours or so. When finished type Exit and hopefully your computer will work.
If you can't get n XP CD you can download and create a bootable CD of Puppy Linux. Boot with the CD. If successful, use the program to backup your data.

Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced area and click Enter
Look for Boot Sequence or Boot Options and highlight that click Enter
Now highlight the first drive and follow the directions on the bottom of the screen on how to modify it and change it to CDrom.
Change the second drive to the C or Main Drive
Once that is done then click F10 to Save and Exit
You will prompted to enter Y to verify Save and Exit. Click Y and the system will now reboot with the new settings.
Hopefully you have already put the Recovery cd in the drive before all this. If everything is setup correctly you will get a black screen with the following message in the upper left corner:
"Push Any Key To Boot To Cd". When you see this then push any key and the cd will take over. Then follow the prompts or if you need assistance we will help.

It has been 25 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.
