Hello,
I'm trying to help a friend out...
I've tried the Startup Repair & get:
Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21200804
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 06: 18
Problem Signature 07: NoRootCause
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033

In System Recovery Options it keeps telling me the user or password are incorrect.

The damn thing won't even start in Safe Mode so I have no Command Prompt. I don't even have the Windows 7 disk...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!

Toshiba Satellite L675-S7018 running Windows 7 Home Premium OA
As it's not my computer (and I can't even get it to boot up), that's all the info I can give.

I did get the password and the System Recovery is still telling me it's incorrect.

Hi :) 

Test the hard drive in DOS....I have seen this a few times when you put in the correct password and it does not accept it.... its usually caused by damaged hard drive sectors...

All the best Brett :)

Well... I don't know how to get to DOS because no option works to boot: not safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, certainly not normally... Any suggestions? :-)
