Try tapping the F8 or F10 button (i usually tap both alternately) to get to the safe mode screen. once you are in safe mode use the start menu to find system recovery.

Start>programs>Accessories>System tools>system restore

I just opened my laptop to use it and it is froze up on me and will not shut off

to shut down press and hold the start button until the machine shuts down, can take up to 10 seconds for the machine to shut down. If this does not work remove the power lead and drop the battery out of the system. You access the battery from underneath - there will be a slider you need to push to eject the battery.

Manual restart

I assume you have no mouse pointer.
Try pushing the Control/Alt/deletekeys all at once twice to see if that restarts it.
If not, push and hold the power button till it shuts down.
If it doesn't fully restart, then you may have to start it in safe mode. (this is ususlly done by tapping the F8 key as it is starting up)
Let me know how it goes.
Oh, Some of the reset button holes are only small enough for a small paperclip to go into. SO these are sometimes hard to find.

Toshiba Satellite: A135-S4427 / Won't shut down

by pressing the power button in, the computer has gone into standby or hibernate mode.
Heres what you Do:- press and hold the power button for between 10 to 20 seconds.
that should bring it out of hibernation.

when you,ve resolved the problem, run a disk-scan via your windows operating system.

8GB GoGear isnt working at all

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).
