A friend has asked me to look at his toshiba satalite pro laptop. All I can tell you about it is that it has xp installed and a celeron processor. When i switch it on it shows a Toshiba bootup pic then has a black screen with the following...
Windows count not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM.
Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.
I did this but it only loads so far
The I got the message
Windows count not start because of an error in the software.
Please report this problem as
load needed Dlls for kernel.
i tried another xp disk and it got part way through loading things on the first blue window setup screen when it just stopped working with the error
file setupdd.sys could not be loaded
The error code is 4
Setup cannot continue. press any key to exit
can anyone shed light on what the problem might be.
