Re: Frozen Toshiba P100
Try This. Restart your computer and as soon as it boots up tap the F8 key repeatedly until you see windows advanced options menu. select safe mode. when it asks you for the operating system just hit enter. as soon as it boots to safe mode do this. click start> run> type msconfig then hit enter. On the system configuration utility click on the startup tab then select disable all. Click apply then close. restart your computer again. It may be a corrupted startup program that is preventing your computer to boot up properly.

I used this same response in a previous solution....It mostly looks like your installation of Windows has been corrupted....some system files may have been affected. See if you can find the recovery disk for your machine. One of the things you can try is use the CD as your boot disk (you may need to enter the BIOS or SETUP to change the boot order...there will be a key to hit when you see the Toshiba splash screen when you first boot the machine...it will say press "<some key here>" to enter setup.) Once you boot from the disk I would try getting to a command prompt and running the following command: chkdsk c: /f /r
This will scan and repair any bad sectors on your hard drive and if they can be repaired it may make your machine bootable again. If they cannot be repaired, it may be that your hard drive is dying. ither way...if you get into the machine (even from the boot disk) if you can see the drive, I'd recommend backing up whatever files you can, because if the drive dies, you will lose your data. You may also use a Linux LIVE CD ... this basically boots a version of linux from a disk rather than your hard drive, it may allow you to test hardware and back up files as necessary before thinking about reinstalling Windows.
Restore Toshiba to Out of the Box Condition If your model Toshiba laptop has a Restore partition on the hard drive then follow these steps to restore your Toshiba to the Out of the Box condition. 1.

Click Next again. 7. Click Next to Start recovery. 8. Restart the Toshiba laptop when there restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.
its a common thing for a vista based system to freeze after some updates , and my good advice to you is you better dont place too many applications on the startup , and avoid unwanted updating , ie8 is one such thing . if u have an option better switch to windows 7 , its really fast on notebook computers . install only defender updates from windows.
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.
I believe you are running Windows Vista. If you are, your system has suffered a crash. If you have the recovery discs, you're going to have to first attempt to fix the boot record. If this doesn't work, then you're going to have to do a destructive restore.
You'll lose all the data. If you don't have any recovery discs, contact Toshiba. If it is under warranty, they'll send you a copy of the discs. They may charge about 40 dollars.
Just make sure that you can read off the product key to them, otherwise I don't think that they can help you.
Hi, ok clearly for the symptom of what describes modal to his portable , I understand that the fault of his equipment comes from the card of video, which not this on board but it is separated, if the problem that he presents also happens for the VGA port and for the DVI port, this indicates that the problem that his equipment presents into in the system board.
