Hey all, I'm working with a Toshiba Satellite Laptop and I'm having some serious issues getting it to run. First off, I've tried installing two different versions of windows XP. One will finish installation and then when its starting up it will BSOD and restart immediately without giving me a chance to read what the error message was. The other installation just stalls out and gets stuck halfway through the installation. I've left it overnight and the progress bar just doesn't move. I've tried switching my RAM to another slot, I've deleted and recreated partitions and tried fresh installs of xp multiple times, and now even ChkDsk won't work. So, in the Recovery Console, I type chkdsk /r, and it says: CHKDSK is checking the volume... CHKDSK is performing additional checking or recovery... CHKDSK is performing additional checking or recovery... CHKDSK is performing additional checking or recovery... 50% completed. The progress ALWAYS stalls at 50%. I've seen it climb up to 75% and then it just reverts back to 50% and gets stuck. WTF. I'm running out of ideas to fix this problem. PLEASE, I've read these forums for awhile now looking for some solutions, but nothings worked so far. I know you guys know your stuff when it comes to computers. If anybody has experienced this themselves or knows how to fix it please let me know. Any and all comments or suggestions are welcome! Thanks in advance!
