I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop, which I recently bought with windows 7 already on it. It recently crashed, so I managed to use a Windows recovery disc to fix the problem. Last night when I shut it down, Windows update was installing an update.
I turned it on this morning and it gets stuck on the starting up screen. The windows emblem is animated as usual, but it gets stuck and eventually resets itself.
I've tried safe mode, but that also gets stuck on the loading file screen. The last driver
to load is atipcie.sys.
Memory diagnostic showed no problems either.
I've also tried the repair disc, but it eventually gets stuck on a black screen, with only the cursor to be seen.
I have uni work on there that I really need to get on with, which I foolishly forgot to back up. Does anyone have any other ideas?
