Booting problems with my Toshiba Satellite P105

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.

FORGOT HDD SYSTEM PASSWORD CANT OPEN TOSHIBA SATELLITE A105?


There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password
You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:
1. Download ISO file from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.
Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.
