Only options: Start-up repair, Start normally. CD/USB boot no result.

Hey.

My toshiba laptop was working fine yesterday. This morning when I turn it on I see start-up repair or start normally. I always make sure to use shut down so that screen shouldn't show but it did. I didn't install any new software/updates.

So now I try normal, "Starting Windows" then there is a quick bluescreen that restarts laptop without me being able to see what the bluescreen says.

Next option was to try start-up repair. It says windows is loading files. Then 'Microsoft corporation' but the bar doesn't load at all it just goes to a black screen. And when I let it sit for awhile, cursor appears and I can move it around but nothing else.

Now about the CD/USB fresh installing. When I went to BIOS,put default,save, restart, and change settings boot from USB or CD, tried both of those but for those it loads windows files then stuck on Starting Windows.

I tried my windows CD I bought and also USB/CD home made copies by downloading it and burning. Same Starting Windows error.

Please help I would like a clean install for I don't have anything of importance to need to back-up.

Have you tried the Toshiba Recovery disk?
