Using a Toshiba A35,Sometimes it starts up and then when the xp Home Edition logo with the moving ball opens it just keeps on moving and nothing else happens. Sometimes I get the message that windows shut down wrong and I then start up normally, it goes thru its motions and then a warning, PXE E61 media test failure, check cable. and then shut down. I hear the Harddrive moving. I note the bios is 1.30 and updates to 1.80 are offered, but unless I get xp going I cannot get the bios updated. I tried using the Toshiba recovery disc that came with the computer which goes thru, but does not help the start up freezing or the PXE warning. Any suggestions?
