    Recovery CDs not Working?

    First off, sorry if this is the wrong section.
    Here's my problem, my Toshiba laptop, Vista 32bit crashed with a blue screen, and would not start up.
    So I popped in the recovery disk, "Windows Loading Files". After that, it loads my computer, then a black screen with no mouse.
    Dies anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

    I will thank you when my laptop works, there is no thanks button on mobile

    Cool
    Something like this happened to me before. I had to reformat my hard drive in the factory settings or something. I think you're pretty much fucked.

    That's exactly what I need to do, but when I put in the CDs, bithing happens, I booted it from pressing F12 on startup.
    I just called tech support, stupid indians going to charge me 60 because I don't have a serial number.

    If you have another hard drive install windows on that and reformat the other one or go to a friends house and do it. There is a way to reformat it without another hard drive but I don't remember what buttons you have to push.

    You got the black screen of death, plus the blue screen.
