1. Please press and hold on F8 key immediately after power on then select Safe Mode. If you are able to go to the desktop, please go to Start-All Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore. Please select a date when your laptop was working properly. This will the software changes beyond that date but will not delete your personal data. Your laptop will restart and give the message that the restoration was completed. Please connect the ac adapter so that the process will not be interrupted. If this does not work like if you are not able to
2.Do the system recovery but with this option, you will lose everything and your computer will be restored to the out of the box state. For you to do this, you will need to use the recovery disk that came with your laptop. Please load the disk 1 then turn your laptop off. Please press on the power button to turn it back on then immediately press and hold on the F12 key. Select CD/DVD from the boot options. Windows will be loading files then select Recovery Wizard. Select the Default Software after that then select the Recover to the Out of the Box State. After the first disk, you will be prompted to load the second disk. Please connect the ac adapter since the entire process will take around an hour.
Hope this works. Thank you.

Toshiba a105 on start up screen is red, then goes black


The Toshiba A105 notebook computer is made for mobile computer users who need optimal processing power. The LCD screen is a 15.4 diagonal widescreen with TruBright technology. The laptop has a fast hard drive access rate that is in the 3ms range for the paging and access of data. There are problems that can occur with the Satellite A105 that can be solved by knowing what to look for when troubleshooting the system.

Black Screen Problem Black screen problems can occur when the Satellite A105 backlight is burned out or the inverter is not working correctly. The backlight can be replaced with a new LCD bulb manufactured for LCD screens. The inverter is a housing unit that controls the voltage to the LCD screen. The inverter must be replaced by a compatible A105 Satellite inverter unit. Power Problems b> During the power-up phase of the laptop, the Satellite A105 will quickly turn off without signing into the Windows Operating Screen. The problem can be due to a faulty power adapter that is not supplying the right amount of voltage to the system board. You can also check to see if the unit that houses the power plug is loose, which also indicates lack of voltage or electricity going to the board for power up operations. Hardware Conflict Problems b> Hardware conflicts can cause system errors or "freezes" by loading a new hardware component into the same hardware I/O address. The Satellite A105 has designated input/output addresses for peripheral devices, such as hard drives, video drivers and other hardware functions. To solve hardware conflicts, use the Control Panel "Hardware" device function to see which hardware I/O addresses is not being used. b> Audio Not Working Correctly b> Loading a new audio program can cause the audio codec for the Satellite A105 not to produce sound. The audio codec can be restored by loading the "restore system disk" for the A105 laptop. The restore menu provides options on certain components that you want to restore. If you pick the option for audio, the program will restore the audio to its factory settings. b> On-board LAN Switch Not Working b> The Satellite A105 is automatically configured to detect T Base 10/100 Ethernet networks. If the laptop does not recognize the on-board LAN switch, check the system setup to examine if the LAN switch is on. If so, a firmware update may be needed to upgrade the BIOS.

My Toshiba boots but when loading windows, it restarts the boot process and continues in this process (loop).


When your computer boots up and you see the Toshiba flash screen, hit f8 and a black screen with multiple options will come up. use your arrows and go down to the option that says disable automatic restart on failure.. or something to that kind. You will recognize it when you see it, then you will be able to get into windows and trouble shoot further. Let me know if this helps

Screen says windows didn't start properly...help! :(


Acctualy you hadn't specified, that the computer is working and then you find this messege every time, or that the computer is not working and this messege appears every time, First if the computer is working properly and you recieve this messege every time, so you must check if you were closing the computer properly (closing all windows before shutdown), Second if this didn't work and the screen still appears, thats means there is corrupted system files due to many factors (from it Infection with a virus), and you must reinstall your windows.

Is there a destructive recovery option on toshiba satellite a105, i have no recovery cd


I'm not really sure what you are asking. If you see an option on startup that says something like press f11 or something for system recovery, then you can recover from the recovery partition--assuming there is one.
You can probably order a recovery CD or DVD from Toshiba, also.

Press F8 function key several times as the computer turns on and when you get a list of options select Last known good configuration the press the Enter key.
If Windows then boots up properly then re-install the latest Windows Service Pack (SP3 for XP, SP1 for Vista).

If all fails then re-install Windows.

Problem restarting, "press r"


  1. Start the laptop
  2. when the logo screen turns black start pressing F8 a few times.
  3. A Windows Boot Options screen should show on the screen
  4. If you see the Windows Logo (the normal thing when Windows loads, then press reset and try again
  5. At the Windows Boot Options screen select "Last known good configuration" and press Enter twice
It "should" now load normally, if not then..
  1. Replace step 5 above with "Safe Mode" and see if that loads all the way through. If so, then restart and see if its OK now.
If not, then post back with any error messages and we can look at something else.
