    My computer is a laptop Toshiba computer. I was working as normal and I do remember I disconnected my USB for my mouse before trying to shut down the computer. I went to the start button to log off as I normally do, and the start window totally froze and would not let me log off as normal. I became suspicious that this may be a virus attack so I shut down immediately. So I tried to reboot, but I have been totally unsuccessful.
    As I try to restart the computer, it gives me the option to "repair" and I have tried to do that, but the "windows loading files" bar that appears loads about halfway, then it comes to a total halt. I'm given an unexpected I/O error and the letters are "OXC00000e9"
    The next window that appears says "Windows encountered a problem communicating with the device connected to your computer (Which currently I do not have anything connected) caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as external USB drive while device in use or by faulty hardware such as hard drive or CD ROM drive that is failing." At the top of this message the page reads "Windows Boot Manager"
    I have tried to reboot using F7 but no help, I tried safe mode and safe mode with networking.
    I don't have reboot disks.
    Is there anyone that can please help me? :confused:
    I would gladly pay if you can direct me on how to resolve this or what I can do to rescue my files.

    Hi, I have been looking over several issues here and I have seen some who have a simuliar solution. I am on an XP system now and the system that I am having trouble with is Vista. I was reading about the Vista Boot repair disk in another thread, and reading more about UBCD, which I have downloaded onto a CD with my XP that is working. So can someone tell me, after I download it to the CD, I just put it in the Vista laptop and set it to boot from CD and it will prompt me through? Or do I proceed through setup before putting it into the other laptop. I apologize, it may sound like a stupid question with a "Duh" answer, but it's Greek to me and I am uncertain, so wanted to be sure before I do something wrong.
    Thanks!
