Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra M1 PC Laptops ?

Computer restarts on own and thats all it does.

\015 My son recieved a Toshiba Tecra M1. When I turn the laptop on it goes straight to a black screen that says this..\015\012\015\012We apoligize for any inconvenience,but windows did not start successfull.A recent hardware or software change might have caused this. If your computer stopped responding,restart unexpectedly or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders,choose last known good configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked. If previous startup ws interupted due to power failure or because the power or reset button was pushed or if you arent sure what caused the problem choose start windows normally.\015\012\015\012safe mode\015\012safe mode with networking\015\012safe mode with command prompt\015\012\015\012last known good configurations\015\012\015\012start windows normally\015\012\015\012\015\012Up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.\015\012\015\012Then there is a countdown that says windows will start automatically after 30 seconds.\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012I have tried every option up there but nothing changes. It will go to the windows loading page then I think it turns off and restarts because all of the indicator lights turn off then come back on when the screen comes back on. I cant get to any other screen to even crash and reload my computer. \015\012The computer was turned on and has been this way since. Nothing was running or loading or even on. It was turned on and this screen popped up. \015\012\015\012I am kinda computer smart but I have never seen this before. Im not sure if its the hard drive or what. I have tried just putting a disc in but still the same black screen. \015\012\015\012Can you give me some advise on what you might think it is. Thanks.\015\012\015\012\015\012\015

\015\012Same brand, Toshiba M1. I also get the loop at the begining but this is during the install process (windows vista). It goes half way and needed to reboot (that is correct). But when it reboots, it will repeat the previous steps. It's a loop that never ends. Same thing when I try Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.
\015\012
\015\012I could install Windows 2000 just fine. But I could not find a driver for the network card. And I really do not want to use Windows 2000 in year of 2008.
\015\012
\015\012Now here is the interesting part. Very interesting indeed. The drive is good. If I put the drive in another computer (slightly differnt model, M2), I can install anything I want (of cause, that is the way it should be). Then when I put the drive back in this M1, everything works perfect.
\015\012
\015\012Perfect until I try to update the OS. For exameple, If I run Windows SP2, it will finish updating and cause a reboot. Now it gets into problem again.
\015\012
\015\012My current thinking is that the disk controler on that machine might have delayed writing. Thus if we write important data (related to boot up) and reboot right away, the data might not have really been written. That would leave the computer in a condition not bootable.
\015\012
\015\012This is just my speculation but I am still doing more testing. Depending on what I find out, I will think a proper way to use this computer. It is very suprising to me to see toshiba brand has this problem. But then, why isn't M1 as popular as M2. There may be design or manufecturing problems.

This is almost always a failed hard drive, however, it can sometimes be a corrupt operating system. Start by trying to reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the hard drive won't format, or if you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.
