Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook

Slow Loading onToshiba Satellite A200 Series

I have already run last known configuration, debugged the problem which came up with nothing. It did say that the toshiba flash cards have stopped working but I am suspicious that lint or dust has been sucked in the laptop. Is it possible that dust could stop certain parts from working???? I was just wondering because this is only a 3 month old notebook. I've tried reformatting the computer hoping that might solve the problem but it won't let me since the system is running so slowly.

Try Downloading Auslogics Disk Defrag,its free and is quicker and,Dare i say it better than vistas built in defrag softwear. Get this from Download.com. Also make sure you do a disc clean a few times a week. To do this goto 'Computer' in the start menu, left click the (c:) drive then right click it.Then select 'Properties' you will then see the disc clean up facillity. Check the boxes you wish to clean. If it has'nt been done for a while it may take some time but after a while it will get quicker untill eventually it will take seconds rather than minutes.

Unit wont start, gray screen then goes to a screen with options on how to start unit and then goes blank


Answer:To load the last known good configuration in Windows 2000 / XP reboot the computer and as it's booting booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Last Known Good Configuration" and press your Enter key.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Advanced Options menu - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message as the computer is booting. If this occurs instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key" tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
As can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.
Will running the Last Known Good Configuration delete anything?
No, running the last known good configuration will restore your last good system settings and will not delete anything. The only thing you may have to reinstall programs you have recently installed because the configuration for those programs may have been lost.

Have you held F8 while loading and selected the "restore last known good configuration"? If not I would try that. Safe mode will not always work. Do you have the repair disk?

Won't start


hmmm..that's weird..here's a notion. are you connected to the net, with wireless or direct connection? If you disconnect, the updates will shut off, since there's no connection found.

try that first..
