My daughter’s Toshiba Satellite L655-85101 RUNNING VISTA 7, keeps crashing to a blue screen to the extent that I can’t open Windows, log to Internet, and most of the time to Windows Explorer, not even in SAFE MODE. How do I stop this from happening? Sometimes I am able to open windows thru SAFE MODE THRU NETWORKING and when I try to run COMBO FIX or HIJACK THIS it goes to the stupid Blue Screen. I made the 3 RECOVERY DISKS after the PC was purchased and seems that they do not want to help! I hope you understand me. A pic. of a similar blue screen has been attached to this!
The Laptop is fairly new, purchased in Oct. 2010.
Please tell me what to do…. PLEASEEE!!!!

Maybe it's just confused by " VISTA 7." :)

I would first suspect a hardware problem, such as memory, hard drive, motherboard, power supply. If the BIOS (Setup) or your Recovery DVDs have any diagnostics you could run them. Memtest86+ is a popular RAM tester. You can probably get diagnostics from the hard drive manufacturer.

Have you tried a start up repair

press F8 at boot time & select other start up options at bottom of screen
that should start the toshiba recovery process

OK! I press F12 and a prompt from Windows says about Recovery. I followed the instructions and then: "windows has recovered from unexpected shutdown". I was able to open Windows in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING, but when I tried to open windows explorer, this is what I got: "Windows can not find C:\program files(Cx86)Internet explorer\iexplore.exe. Make sure you typed the name correctly and try again" ... that's all!!! :-(

2 CD/DVD
3 FDD
4 LAN
5 eSATA
6 USB
That's all!

Three items ...

1. dvk01 is suggesting a startup repair or maybe a "Recovery" back to factory defaults using what's already on the hard drive, in a Recovery partition. Does F8 get you to a menu with any promising entries? Do you know what key is supposed to boot to the Recovery partition? On some computers as soon as you turn it on a little information about what keys do what appears briefly. Do you get that? Pressing the Pause key will keep it on the screen so that we humans have enough time to read it.

2. F12 apparently gets you to a boot menu. If you have your 1st Recovery DVD in the optical drive and select option 2 it should give you options to "repair" or to start the Recover to factory default settings or maybe to run some diagnostics. Any luck with that?

3. My thinking, not necessarily correct of course, is that the above are not going to work (at least not for long) because there is a hardware problem. See my post # 2.

I am more inclined to think that this is a MBR rootkit problem going by the name of the driver involved in the BSOD but it can also be casued by a new software or even a windows update

if that sys driver isn't working then cd or dvd won't work so you can't even reinstall or repair using teh cd/dvd
