Windows xp professional repair problem!
« on: January 21, 2005, 04:07:58 PM »

I am trying to repair windows XP professional on a Toshiba laptop!

It goes through the normal screen for repair but when it is installing devices (at around 34 minutes to go) the system shuts down and restarts again. It never passes this point.

I am not using the original windows professional disc.

Help please as there are documents that have not been backup!!!

I would suggest taking it to a computer service department.  They should be able to easily hook your hd up to another computer pull whatever docs you need off and then return your hd to your nb and get your windows running....provided your hd is ok and you have a legal license for windows 2000.

Toshiba A30 Laptop

The problem was firstly that the internal modem would not work, I tried to reinstall it by it still did not work. The only thing I picked up from the net was that it maybe a problem with windows updates. So I decided to repair windows. The operation seemed to go OK until the install got to 34 minutes to go, the computer turned it self  off and then went into an eternal loop, (34 mins and of etc.). the only thing I could do was put another copy of windows on so I have a dual boot system. I have saved all my documents and emails, I have had to reconfigure the network settings and reinstall most programme but it seem to be working OK but the modem is still not working so I have gone out and bought a PCMCIA modem card that works OK

Thanks for all you help

But I did all this for nothing!!!!
