Windows 7 will not even load in safe mode or anything. This is for a Toshiba NB 305 this is all I know being that windows will not load at all. I do know that it is Windows 7 starter. If that helps anyone.

Please go HERE and post a new thread for your problem. Fill in your system specs more thoroughly. Some one will come and try to help. They are busy, give a bit of time.
