Hello everyone.

My Toshiba laptop (64-bit) windows 7 won't boot properly. This is what happens: I power the laptop on and the Windows splash screen appears, then it shifts to the ominous BSOD but it disappeared too fast for me to read. Then it just stays on a black screen with a blinking underscore. :( This prevents me from doing anything with the laptop.

I've tried a few solutions like pressing F8 and restoring it to it's last good configuration but it always is "unsuccessful''
Also, I've noticed in pretty much every forum that Toshiba Satellite Laptops suffer from these symptoms the most :angry:

Any help regarding this issue is appreciated. I will try to respond as fast as possible.

See if you can disable the Auto Restart so that you can see any on screen error messages.

Power up the computer and just before the Windows 7 splash screen appears/before your PC automatically restarts press the F8 key to enter Advanced Boot Options.

Once you have the error message/s see if you able to start in Safe Mode.

Let us know how it goes.

Thank you for your response Philpower.
I actually got the problem fixed now though, haha. Thank you anyways.

For those who were wondering how I got it fixed, F8 ---> Repair your computer, and try every option there until your computer gets fixed.
