Hi sir  use your manual or maybe boot into windows (if possible) and find out the refresh rate the your lcd screens run at. (LCD's are locked to a single refresh rate and have an optimal resolution unlike CRT's and its usually 60Hz)
since we're going to mess about with your display configuration, it would be wise to make a backup of things.
exit X and go into the plain black console.
cd /etc
cp inittab inittab.old (make a backup of inittab file)
edit the inittab file using vi or any other editor and change the default runlevel to 3 from 5.
save the file and exit.

Reboot!

on boot time watch for any message that sez anything about going into the BIOS and displaying what key to press. For example: Hit Delete, F2, F3, F4, and so on....

Do you know how to get into the bios setup? Either hit delete or a function key then you can change the settings in there.
Thanks,
Lee

You can try to access the BIOS of your computer and there you will see all the option that you can change on your BIOS and hopefully you will be having some option to do that on your BIOS...

Hope that helps...........

If there is a option it can be seen in your bios. You'd have to consult the manual that came with your computer. There
are several different manufacturers of CMOS chips, as well as a great
many versions of each BIOS.

    These controls are located in a part of the system called "BIOS Settings", "BIOS Menu", "CMOS settings", "CMOS setup" or some similar variation. This should be covered in your user manual.



    You usually enter "BIOS Settings" menu by pressing a specific key or keys during the beginning of the boot-up process. The specific key(s) to press are usually mentioned in a corner of the display as the system boots. They should also be in the manual. It is sometimes the "F2" key, or "Del", or a combination like "Ctrl+S" keys.



    Once you've entered the menu, you'll see it provides many parameter settings organized in "pages". Basically, walk through the on-screen prompts until you see the settings having to do with cacheing and shadowing.



    Every system and even current BIOS version has
    a different way to present these data, so we generally can't give you a
    specific keystroke-by-keystroke set of instructions. Again, your user
    manual should detail this information.



    If you don't have a current user-manual, you should be able to go to the motherboard or system manufacturer's website to download a copy. It will usually be in .pdf format which will (in order to be able to read it) require a free .pdf reading application like Adobe Reader or Foxit.

It stated on my lappy " UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" "check to make sure any hardware or software is properly installed" and ask my hardware or software manufacturer for any windows...


UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME - Windows is completely corrupted and the BIOS can't load it.
Just load the default settings in the BIOS and then reinstall Windows using the recovery cd that came with it when you bought it.

How to remove BIOS memory cache


Since it is a Toshiba Tecra if you are not worried about losing data on the laptop you can try turning on the laptop and start pressing the zero key. It should give you the option to restore your laptop if you haven't deleted the restore partition on the laptop.

BOIS reset


I can help you with this without a doubt! Good to see you getting back into the field. The first thing I need to help you with your problem is the manufacturer and model of your computer in question. The second is a little more description on what you would like to achieve. For example, from the BIOS you can enable or disable functionality for CPU's, disable checksums or reconfigure voltage settings. If you want to just poke around a little bit I can give you hand with that too.
