Ok my laptop was running fine until yesterday, where it froze up and then restarted, when it restarted it stuck on the windows loading bar and would not continue from there. I tried doing automatic repair and restore points but neither would work, (i appear to have lost the install disc the laptop came with), but i tried the toshiba hdd and os restore but was presented with the same error. So then i attempted to install linux ubuntu instead to make sure the hdd was working properly, however this install failed. I then swapped the hdd with one i had laying around from an old laptop and then i tried installing ubuntu again but no success any help guys?
My laptop is a toshiba satellite L300 and was initially running windows vista.
