Hoping someone can help here. My wife owns a Toshiba Satellite Laptop with Vista Home Premium installed. The other day the laptop went beep and shut down. Now it will not boot up - it gets the Toshiba screen then goes to a white flashing cursor in the top left. Pressing F8 does not open up the Recovery Console, I have downloaded a Recovery Console program and burnt it to a disc. I can select to boot from the DVD Drive and the Recovery console does open up.
I have tried the Start Up Repair, but consistently encounter an error which reads 'The exception breakpoint: A breakpoint has been reached (0x80000003) occurred in the application at location 0x739c746a: Click ok to terminate.'
It will then open a box stating that Windows cannot repair the problem. Under the details, it lists the following;

Problem Signature 01 External Media
Problem Signature 02 6.0.6000.16386.6.0.6001.18000
Problem Signature 03 6
Problem Signature 04 262148
Problem Signature 05 Corrupt Registry
Problem Signature 06 Corrupt Registry
Problem Signature 07 32
Problem Signature 08 3
Problem Signature 09 Rollback Registry
Problem Signature 10 32

I have also ran chkdsk from the Command Prompt, but that has found no errors.
There is no other back up disc and I don't have a copy of Vista with the laptop.

Any advice will be welcome. Thanks in advance.
