Windows 7: toshiba nb 250 laptop

How exactly did it fail? If it failed during Updates then it may be a problem Update which needs isolating.

Instead of reinstalling I would System Restore to a point before it failed, then reinstall the Updates singly to find out which one is failing.

If you're concerned about the HD you can install CrystalDiskInfo - Software to get a SMART reading from the desktop, or you can burn to CD using Windows Image Burner, boot and run the HD Diagnostic extended CD scan. But I saw no evidence of HD corruption when I connected.

i carnt seem to get it to do anything at moment it will not even let me wipe hard drive from boot to reinstall.
carnt get windows to run.
it gets as far as the part where you have advance options to delete drive so you just have the one.
have you any sugestions what to do next.
the program you mention above can this be run from usb when boot pc up?

Does it show the drive partitions when it boots to the screen where to install WIndows?

If so try selecting C to install straight away, without using Drive Options. If it fails describe exactly what happens.

If not Is the HD even detected in BIOS setup? run the HD tests at the beginning of Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

What exactly do you not understand about running the hardware tests in the beginning note at Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start?

At some point you're going to need to be able to complete some steps on your own. If you have problems ask back.

When I connected the other night everything was running fine with no evidence of hardware problems. Is all that you did since then install the Updates?

Please post back the exact verbatim error message you refer to above. You can also google it to get started on finding the solution.

I suggested you run the hardware tests at the beginning of tutorial before Step 1. Find the make of your HD to download the correct DOS (CD) ISO from HD Diagnostic link, then burn to CD using Windows Image Burner or ImgBurn. If you can't find the HD brand then use SeaTools for DOS | Seagate. Boot and run the Extended test to get the HD condition. If it passes, wipe the HD with Quick Wipe option on CD and try install again.

Reinstall Starter.

Edit: Connected to see what was crashing laptop after reinstall. Crystal Disk Info gives warning on the HD. Suggested he run Hitachi Drive Fitness test.
