Hi, new member here System: Toshiba Satellite M50, 2 yrs old. Recently (3 months) I have been having trouble getting my system to 'unhibernate'. Usually I would just try to not allow it to hibernate to prevent this problem, now I wish I had addressed it sooner. Usually, I had to power of the computer with no shut-down, and restart it (I would just select 'start windows normally') and it was fine. Last time this happened, it would not start. everything was as normal until I got to the XP loading page (with the blue progress bar). Then it would freeze. The good news is that I was able to start it in safe mode, and burn data DVD's, so there is nothing on the hard drive that I really care about. Not really knowing what I was doing, I decided to use the 'product recovery disc' that came with the computer (sounds like a good idea, right?) so, it took about 40 minutes, and then asked to reboot. on startup, it unzipped some files, and then went to a similar looking XP loading page (without the blue progress bar) and froze. Any attempts to restart now in any mode are met with an error message saying that 'setup was incomplete' I'm thinking that using the recovery disc was a bad idea. Should I just give up, and take it to a professional? Any suggestions would be amazing.
