Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A40 Notebook ?

Windows system32 config system

\015 Laptop crashed, only message we get is the above one and cant even get to run the recovery CDs, any suggestions? Thanks so much!\015

Answers :

It sounds like you have an OEM disk of Windows XP from the manufacturer which will not always run as a recovery disk in these situations.

\015\012You have two main options; -
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. If you are still under warranty for the laptop call the manufacturer explan the problem and ask them to send you a working non-OEM copy of the OS/ recovery disk
  2. \015\012
  3. Borrow a copy of a genuine Windows disk (same version of the OS, e.g. if it is Windows XP Home) and use it to access the Recovery console to run the repair option. Then of course return the disk to your friend.
