    Toshiba Satellite running on windows XP


    When I start the computer, it asks if for the choice of Safe Mode, w/ Networking, w/Command Prompt or Normally.
    I've tried them all and if I try it normally, it won't get past the XP loading screen. It's loading and then it flashes a blue screen for a second and then restarts the computer again.

    I tried pressing F8 at boot and selected 'Disable automatic restart on system failure' and this is what I get


    STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x83306788, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)



    I even tried using this http://forums.techguy.org/6669592-post28.html to get to chkdsk
    At boot, F12, chose CD/DVD, but still nothing,
    I even tried disabling boot from +HDD, FDD and LAN from the bios setup menu to see if it works and this is what I got, it just keeps going on and on unless I enable boot from +HDD


    Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 082)

    For Realtek RTL8139(X)/8130/810X PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.13 (020326)
    PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
    PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.




    That's about everything I could get.
    Thanks.

    That is because the HDD is disabled, so the computer finding no boot device anywhere else trys to boot from the network.
    Go back into BIOS setup please.
    Make first boot device CD
    Second boot device Floppy
    Third boot device HDD
    Save changes and exit. normally F10 but check your BIOS message
    Insert XP CD and post back if it will now boot to that.

    Yeah, I burnt it into a CD.

    I boot the computer with the CD in the computer but it just keeps doing the same thing.
    First BIOS => then asks to choose between Start normally or safe mode => then after that it tries to load XP => then flashes a blue screen for a split second and reboots.

    Go back to BIOS setup.
    Check that the CD is shown as FIRST boot device.
    Exit BUT save that setting, normally F10.
    Then see if it will boot to the CD.
    When you say First BIOS a computer does not boot to the BIOS the first screen is the post screen, if it is then showing Safe Mode or Normal it is not booting to the CD
