Based on some recommendations here after my Toshiba DVD/TiVo stopped working, I did the "Pause 57" boot. Seemed to work fine - got the green screen of defrag or whatever it is doing.
Problem is it only stays on the green screen for less than one minute and then it tries to reboot. Then back to green screen. Then reboot. Never stops. Let it run for 10 hours overnight and it is still doing it. Finally unplugged it.
Any suggestions? I know there are other codes out there to reinstall, etc. but I do not want to lose my programs or make the issue worse.
