You may be using too much memory, so it doesnt have enough memory to do its functions. Un-install anything you dont use.
If this doesnt work, get the graphics card which is RECOMMENDED, NOT MINIMUM, simply because some games dont work on minimum.
If this still doesnt work, then get it checked out at a nearby Electronic Repair Store, and see what they make of it.

There are a couple of things you can try. Without knowing the exact model of your toshiba I will give you reference to all of them

The first is to hold down the "0" (zero) Key, and then hold down your power key WITHOUT releasing the 0 key. Then power on STILL holding down the 0 key and the recovery partition shoudl come up.

If this does not work try it about 5 times before giving up, sometimes toshibas can be moody.

The instructions are:
Remember to choose restore to factory settings, and recovery to out of box state. Follow the prompts and you should be good to go.

hope this helps! If it does, please give me a good rating!

I have an older hp laptop(dv7-3079wm) and i play Assassin's Creed Brotherhood on it and i dont have any problems whats so ever. i got myself a new laptop like 2 months ago, its a (dv7-4073nr), so basically...


sounds like you went from xp to vista...try installing a second partition with xp or win 7....vista has a known problem of doubling video memory in the system memory....so if your running vista on a laptop, you are straining the system from the get go
vista seems fast, for a little while
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!

Cant install sims 2 double deluxe.


Hi there, is the disc damaged at all? if it is, but not very deep scratches, try polishing the disc/disc's, with a very soft cloth. make sure you clean the disc from centre outworse not side to side like most people do, if there is any stains/marks on the disc, try watching them off my damp soft cloth and cleaning it gently, and then dry with enough soft cloth inwards out again.

Also go to your program files making sure there isnt any semi installed versions of Sims, if there is delete the folder for the Sims 2 Double Delux and try again :)

Also alot of games dont install with windows vista, why i am still using windows Xp, untill windows 7 comes out to the public.

Hope you found this helpfull.

CivCity Rome shuts down windows on vista laptop


That's wierd... O.K. yeah, its probably the vista thing... Or it might be the download. When you downloaded the game you might of gotten a faulty copy i.e. the game file has a virus. If it is the "vista" thing, than download the game onto another computer that can play it. Like how you said the game would work fine on your old XP PC, than it sounds like that's the computer you have to use. My advice, keep looking for different downloads to get the game, and keep searching for patches to try and fix the problem, if all else fails buy the game or call tech support. Hope this helps

Bioshock shutting down to desktop


Try turning your graphics settings down to lowest and see if you still have the problem.  If the problem does persist, I would recommend adding some more RAM to the system, another 2GB would be ideal.  It could also be the video card overheating, so make sure your case is dust-free and the fans are working properly.
