Windows 7: Perpetual start up repair purgatory.

As before I never get to the screen to get system recovery options.

Whatever I do, either in hard drive or cd/dvd it states windows is loadimg files and then defaults to the blank screen and large white cursor.

I made the recovery discs 2 years ago. I assumed they were successful ly at the time.

Is this it?

Time to buy anoyher NON Toshiba laptop?

Would it make any sense to buy a new hard drive and attempt to load my recovery discs on to that?

I have never replaced a hard drive before, I assume it would have to be formatted first.

Is this a wild call or am I likely looking at a software issue witj my current problem?

Cheers.

I tried to do a repair install, but I dom't get far, the cd drive is ignored and the screen revert s to a system repair blank screen and large white cursor. It really is stuck in a loop.

I am able to look at links on my smart phone.

I cannot download anything as my laptop will not start up, hence me being on here in the first place!

From F8 I justtrief to revert to last known good configuration, after the windows logo disappear ed it reverted to the recommend ed windows recovery mode with blank screen and large white cursor.

The true perpetual loop!

Maxie, I am grateful to you & Yard dog for your help

What do the initials Iso stamd for?
I am clearly a novice.
Even if I download on to a dvd or cd, there is no way I can transfer the file to my damaged laptop as it ignores the cd drive and reverts into blank screen windows start recovery mode.
Cheers.

It is a Windows7 Installation DIsc ... It would probably work and do the Repair it is different to your Recovery Disc so do not go by that .. If it was not able to Repair you would have the Option of a Clean Install .. Do you have the Product COA Key ? .... It should be on the Underside of your Laptop or maybe inside the battery compartment .. I sent you a PM can you please reply ..
