My toshiba win xp p4 lap top (8 mos old) just started failing to start in normal mode today.
It goes through the start up process, but right after you see the windows is starting thingy with the blue bars, it doesnt load the windows screen. It just flashes and then after about 30 seconds i get a qiuick blue screen i cant read, then it goes into the *were sorry but windows failed to start, please choose to start in safe mode below etc* screen.
I can run it in safemode, as I am on it now. I tried several virus scans, and a sys restore as well as a last working setting thingy. same thing no matter what.
I don't know how to figure out what is wrong. any help would be greatly appreciated.
