I have a Toshiba laptop with windows xp and it won't boot up. It had a problem before where it kept cutting out but my dad fixed that by getting the dust out. I think he tried to defragment it yesterday because I have hardly any space left on it but it came up with an error which he ignored, since then it hasnt been booting up properly. We tried booting it up in safe mode then restarting it which seemed to work once but then stopped. Do you have any ideas? Thanks.

could you describe the situation a little better? any error codes? blue screens? post beeps? how far does it get through post? does it lock up anywhere in the boot process?

Hi baby82

You need to start your own post. This post is over 4 years old and the original poster evidently did not want to continue.
