Windows 7: Windows 7 repair disc not working?

I'll ask a couple of others to take a look as I've never run across this. My only present idea is that the power supply unit is going out.

When you boot up the computer, do you hear any beeps?

Reset the bios to defaults.

I haven't heard any beeps or anything like that. Everything sounds normal.

I'm gonna visit the Toshiba website and figure out how to restore BIOS to default. In the meantime, thank you for all of your help so far. I really appreciate it

Is the HD detected in BIOS setup? Check now. While in BIOS reset to defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

If HD shows up in BIOS then try Seatools by booting Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD) from a USB flash drive | USB Pen Drive Linux. If it fails try unplugging CD drive to see it it is problematic. If not then burn another CD using ImgBurn.

Work through other these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

If HD doesn't show in BIOS, replace it, then Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Replace AVG bloated crapware with Microsoft Security Essentials and ancient Spybot with Malwarebytes.

Normally with Toshiba:
PowerDown
PowerUp
Immediately start tapping the F2
You will end up in the bios interface.
F9 key will restore defaults
F10 key will Save and Exit.

Do the best of your ability, complete your system specs. We need you help so that we can help you.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Ř Manufacturer and Model OR Custom build.
Ř ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

With Speccy, you can select with your mouse/touchpad info from the display
and paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

ok. i reset my bios to defaults. and yes, my HD is detected in the bios. I also downloaded Speccy, but since my laptop won't boot, im not sure how to run it. do i just burn to a CD?

also, here is what i know about my computer so far. I'll be sure to update my system specs.

Toshiba Satellite C655 Laptop
500GB HD
4 GB Ram
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 Bit

I know its not much, but until I run speccy, its all I know so far.

Then work through the steps for Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

You'll need to start with disinfecting because if it's infected it may not repair otherwise. Then repair system files followed by boot.

If your system is defective, then how are burning SeaGate Tools for DOS to a CD?

karlsnooks,

I'm using a seperate computer. I have another desktop in my house that the rest of the family uses. I've been communicating and downloading the suggested files on this computer and also using it to burn the CD's. also, if you're wondering, I used my friend's computer to burn my windows repair disc. He also has a windows 7 64 bit computer, so I used his to create the repair disc. The computer i'm currently using is 32 bit, so I know that doesn't work.

Use IMGBURN at 4x to burn a CD.

See if that works.

How did you run Memtest86+?
