    Hi, I am new here basically in order to sove a problem on a friend's laptop. It is a Toshiba PSM35E.
    When I first switch on the b/w selection screen starts with the safe mode etc options. Any of those options results in the Windows XP screen loading showing. As soom as it loads, the machine restarts to the same cycle which repeats until I pull the power plug. The battery is useless and has been removed.
    I hope you can think of something. The fan and heatsink have been cleaned and fresh paste applied.
    The cd drive is empty.
    Kind regards from France,
    Humphrey

    I might add that it does not matter which options are checked from safe mode to last known, it still does the cycle.
    I also tried booting from the network with no change.
