Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?

Looking for assistance. My father is having some

\015 Looking for assistance. My father is having some issues with his Toshiba laptop. Everytime he turns it on he gets the normal windows screen with the progress bar at the bottom as if it's booting fine, then the whole screen turns black for about a minute and he gets a message saying that Windows has failed to start because it has experienced a power cut or wasn't shut down correctly, etc, etc. Anyway, it gives the usual options like: do you want to try running windows as normal, use last working configuration, safe mode, safe mode with networking etc, but he's tried them all several times and all of them end up just going to the WindowsXP starting screen for a minute, then going black for a minute, then a blue screen with some white text on it which appears then diappears in half a second so he can't tell what it says and then just reverts to the screen asking about safe mode and use last working settings etc etc again. if he leaves it alone on this screen it tries to just restart windows automatically in 30 seconds. He's tried powering off/on, removing battery, and hitting Function Keys (I told him not to mess with the BIOS), but nothing seems to work. I've not experienced this kind of failure before in other laptops, where it seems to just keep "cycling" the bootup. He's on travel, so he doesn't have his Original Bootup Disk either (I was going to suggest he try to boot from it). Do you have any ideas? Thanks.\015
