I am trying to reload windows xp pro on my Toshiba laptop. It starts to reload then locks up about 5 minutes into reload. The original problem was that on boot up the machine would start to boot up then immediately shut down. Any help out there please?
Could be bad CD. Could be bad hard drive. Are you trying to repair or reinstall Windows XP? If reinstalling is it making it through the format portion of the install? If not a new hard drive is definitely needed.
It's a Tosh satellite M45. S265..... It's about 6 years old. The original os was xp home. I'm now trying xp pro. The fan is running excesivley so maybe it is overheating? Not sure what the hard drive is...I will take a look.
That video is dangerous. As the comments indicate, you can kill sensitive electronic components by using a vacuum cleaner anywhere near a computer. Not just the hard drive either. Any part of the computer other than maybe a disconnected keyboard.
