Question about Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 Notebook
My Toshiba Satellite P105 is less than 2 years old and has Windows XP on it. When booted up green and black squares appear. Then small dotted horizontal lines in 1 inch stripes appear after which vertical dotted stripes of lines appear. The screen often goes black. Hooking it up to an external monitor allows you to see the display. I have restored it several times to an earlier date when it had worked and that lasted about 2 weeks. That is not working anymore. The Recovery disk has been used and that made it function for a couple of days. The memory has been replaced, that made it work about 1 week. The hard drive has been "reseated" and that made it function for 2 days. It now will boot in Safe Mode. Do I need a new hard drive?
Try to reinstall the video driver from Safe mode.
It appears your hard disk is OK but the operating system and or registry is corrupted.
1. Try installing the video driver first.
2. If it still does not work, back up your data files in Safe Mode then re-install XP again, make sure you delete the partition and create a new partition and do a full NTFS format, not a quick format.
