Defragged computer, now freezes at loadup

So I was defragging my computer over night and when I woke up for school this morning my computer froze. I had no way to turning it off so I held the power button. When I got home today I turned it on and it said either start windows normally or startup repair. I did the startup repair and I was able to move the mouse, but the mouse was big and the screen is black. It was like that for 20 minutes until I just turned it off by using the power button. I turned it back on and clicked start windows normally, and it showed the windows sign and it said "starting up" and this went on for around 10 minutes before I turned it off. As I'm typing this, I have the laptop doing the startup repair thing again. I have a disc to put in to restart my computer to how I had it. Should I do that, even though it will erase all of my schoolwork? I tried putting the disc in, but I can't run it since I can't get to login screen. I can't take the laptop in to a shop either.

SOURCE: Computer restarts on own and thats all it does.

I have a similar situation, only worse.

Same brand, Toshiba M1. I also get the loop at the begining but this is during the install process (windows vista). It goes half way and needed to reboot (that is correct). But when it reboots, it will repeat the previous steps. It's a loop that never ends. Same thing when I try Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

I could install Windows 2000 just fine. But I could not find a driver for the network card. And I really do not want to use Windows 2000 in year of 2008.

Now here is the interesting part. Very interesting indeed. The drive is good. If I put the drive in another computer (slightly differnt model, M2), I can install anything I want (of cause, that is the way it should be). Then when I put the drive back in this M1, everything works perfect.

Perfect until I try to update the OS. For exameple, If I run Windows SP2, it will finish updating and cause a reboot. Now it gets into problem again.

My current thinking is that the disk controler on that machine might have delayed writing. Thus if we write important data (related to boot up) and reboot right away, the data might not have really been written. That would leave the computer in a condition not bootable.

This is just my speculation but I am still doing more testing. Depending on what I find out, I will think a proper way to use this computer. It is very suprising to me to see toshiba brand has this problem. But then, why isn't M1 as popular as M2. There may be design or manufecturing problems.

Hi Marshall, and welcome to FixYa,

Have you tried everything?

Perform the steps given below to increase your system performance.

Uninstall all unwanted software:
To uninstall software
Click on Start
à Settings à Control Panel à Add/Remove Programs
Select the software (one at the time) from the list and click on the Add/Remove button and follow the online screen instructions.

Erase unnecessary files in the windows temp folder.
Double Click My Computer.
Double Click the drive where windows are installed. This is typically drive C.
Double Click the windows folder. This is typically C:\Windows.
Double Click the temp folder. This is typically C:\Windows\temp.
Press control A to select all files and folders.
Press the delete key.
If confirmation is asked to delete these files choose yes to all.


Defragment hard disk.
Close all applications.
Disable your screen saver.
Disable all the programs on the taskbar if possible.
Click Start.
Click Program.
Click Accessories.
Click System Tools.
Click Defrag.
Select the drive to defrag.

You should defrag every hard disk on your system.
This process can take quite some time.
Click Ok.
Enable your screen saver.


Remove Startup programs (if you know what you are doing)
Click Start
Select Run
Type msconfig in the text box
The "System Configuration Utility" window will open

A list of programs will be shown each having a checkbox to the left of the name.
Click on the checkbox to enable the program (so it runs when windows boots) and click a second time to Uncheck the box to disable the program (so it does not run when windows boots).


Set the size of the virtual memory (swap file) to a constant optimal size.
Right click My Computer
Click Properties
The System Properties window lists the amount of RAM in your PC
Click Performance
Click Virtual Memory
Click Let me specify my own virtual memory settings
Click the arrow next to the hard disk.
Here are some guidelines to choose the best location for your virtual memory file
a) Select the quickest hard disk.
b) If you have, two hard disks that are similar in performance select the hard disk that does not contain Windows system files (usually C:).
c) Make sure the drive has free space equal to at least twice the size of the recommended swap file size.
d) If the partition is on the same physical drive, select the partition in alphabetical order. For example, if you have one 20GB hard disk and you partition it into two 10GB partitions drive C & D) You should pick Drive C over Drive D if meets all the guidelines of a, b & c.

Set the Minimum/Maximum to: With large hard disks settings at least 128mb or 256mb swap file should be sufficient in almost every situation.
Note: The amount of RAM plus the size of the virtual memory file is the maximum amount of RAM you can use at once.
Click OK.
After setting the size of the virtual memory file windows will display the following message. You have chosen not to let windows manage virtual memory automatically.
Click Yes.
You must restart your computer before the new settings will take effect. Do you want to restart your computer now?

Click Yes

Now, antivirus program? Have you got one?

SOURCE: I have a Toshiba A105 Laptop, Screen goes blank after windows....

Here are some easy things that can sometimes resolve this problem:
1) Sometimes there can be a static buildup on the mother board. Power off, remove the battery, remove the power cord and hold the power button in the on position for at least 30 seconds.
2) If that didn't work- Power down, remove the battery, remove the Hard Drive and memory modules and reinsert them. Try to power back up
If these things don't work, get back to me for some more ideas.

SOURCE: cannot start up the laptop

Hi there.
That really quick flash of a blue screen is the blue screen of death and there is a possibility that the error could be memory related.
What you have to do is remove and clean the system memory and the slots the memory goes into.
Take out the battery and the AC power (if attached)
The memory will be located behind a panel underneath the laptop, unscrew the panel unclip the memory, clean the brass contacts and the slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place, replace the memory cover and reboot the laptop, see if it lets you into windows.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I have no monitor what so ever...i hear the fan running on my tower and i have the power light...i bought a new video card and cords but i cant see to install the video card what do i do or what did i do...


Clean the connectors of the monitor cable. Clean your RAM and check the disk. Most probably a cable fault. If you see the Hard Disc indicator while booting then no problem with the disk (since you get no error messages).
Please rate the answer if it solves the problem. Thank you for contacting Fixya.

Have you defragged the hard drive recently? Right click on the drive and go to "Properties" then "Tools" to defragment the drive. You might also invest in some more memory. Good luck!

My Toshiba Satellite 2455-S3001 is running at a crawl. The cursor freezes and I can't get it to do anything.


Go to start>programs>accessories>system tools Disk Defragment.

Analyze the disk to see if it needs defragged.
You may also have a memory issue. Low memory can also cause this.
