Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2386 Notebook

1 Answer

Unwanted multi cascade in explorer

Hi, I am having trouble with window after window after window appearing in internet explorer.

I am clicking OK to send a bid on a website I use all the time. It has never happened before today - until I tried it on my brand new Toshiba Satellite laptop!

The only way to stop it seems to be shutting the pc down..

In a few seconds it can be up to 20 windows and in no time at all, into the 50s.

This is a serious issue for me, as I use this site for my main trade of business.

Please help. !

I have the Satellite ,L300D-14G one but had to select A135-S2886 because the product link did not recognise L300 etc.

Win7? click on the win key, type restore point in the search box and press enter. Select a date/time before you clicked on the wrong box.
That will restore your system to when it was as you liked it and won't affect your data.

Cante make googl my home page


Hi Dennis,

Internet Explorer lets you have more than one home page (that open in different tabs), which you probably don't want and that might be what is confusing you.

Try this:

1) Click on the Start menu (bottom-left corner of your screen) and type 'Internet Options' (no quotes)
2) Click on the Internet Options programs that appears in the list
3) The window that pops up will be in the 'General' tab
4) In the 'Home page' section, clear out all the text in there and type in (without quotes) "https://www.google.com"
5) Click OK and the window will close
6) Restart Internet Explorer

Internet explorer is not appearing in normal view. how can i change it back to noraml?


It kind of depends on which version of Internet Explorer you are using, and what you mean by normal view. Do you mean something like it is not full screen, or something else? If it is not full screen, simply click the middle of the 3 small icons on the top right. If you need to restore Internet Explorer to original condition, for IE7 you:
Restore Internet Explorer 7 to its default settings To restore Internet Explorer to its default settings:
  1. Click on Tools menu, and click on Internet Options.

  2. Click on Advanced tab.

  3. Click the Restore advanced settings button.

  4. If You cannot use Internet Explorer, click the Reset button and then click OK. Otherwise, click OK to exit the Internet Options window.

My browser will not connect to the internet


Do you have any other internet enabled applications that are connecting properly? If you do have other internet enabled apps and they too are having problems than I would suggest trouble shooting your network connections.

If you are running Windows XP go "Control Panel" and under "PIck a Category" select "Network and Internet Connections". Next select "Network Connections". Right click your network connection and select "Repair". Windows will attempt to repair your network drivers, settings, and reestablish your network connection. If unsuccessful it will attempt provide an error message describing the problem.

If you don't see that option start checking connections along your network cable wiring. A plug may have come out or a cable damaged.

If it is not your network connection or your wiring it is your browser software. Reset your browser back to default settings to repair any changes made by accident by yourself or perhaps a website attempting a browser hijack:

Reset Internet Explorer to the default settings To reset Internet Explorer to the default settings
  1. Close any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.
  2. Open Internet Explorer.
  3. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.
  5. Select the Delete personal settings check box if you would like to remove browsing history, search providers, Accelerators, home pages, and InPrivate Filtering data.
  6. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
  7. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the settings, click Close, and then click OK.
  8. Close Internet Explorer. Your changes will take effect the next time you open Internet Explorer.
Hope this helped.
