  1. Much to my dismay, we don't @nigsy - I tried to reboot from the dvd, but it did the same thing as before. The laptop just kept rebooting itself, even though I chose to reboot from cd/dvd. Please help!
  2. Hi, I need help with my sister's laptop. She has a Toshiba Satellite C660 running on Windows 7. The laptop when booting up suddenly brings out a black screen saying, "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause..." With two options to select: - Launch Startup Repair - Start Windows Normally When I chose 'Startup Repair' the laptop goes to a 'Windows Loading Files' screen but then suddenly becomes black with just the cursor.

  7. Excuse my noobiness but what is a caddy? Do you have an example of it? I've been searching everywhere for a usb cable but no luck. Can only find male and female which I already have and so I tried my best to find a usb adapter but still no luck. Is there anyway else I can connect the two? If possible, will I be able to transfer data from my almost dieing hard drive into my laptop or something using ethernet cables? (Also in between the weeks before my hard drive behaved this way, I kept getting blue screens that said it had an error and needed to be rebooted to perform memory dump som
  8. just tried the fixboot command but received an error msg "cannot find the system drive or the driver specified is not valid
  9. thanks for the tip. I will try that after doing this. Cleaned out my hard drive tower and was able to start a recovery console. What do u suggest i should do for the recovery console?
  10. Hi, Just turned on my computer this morning to discover that it wasn't booting up properly. After the Asus splashscreen it went to a black screen and shows 'reboot and select boot device...'
