When you get into windows you need to perform a surface scan of the hard drive and check it for bad sectors, i sounds like it is having difficulties reading the boot drivers, run chkdsk /f to check the disk for any problems and it should fix them for you, if the drive comes up clean with no problems then the system 32 folder is corrupt and you are looking at a full system recovery, make sure you back up all of your data while you can still use the machine

good luck

I am having toshiba M305-S4819 laptop. Since 1 week, touch and launch buttons are not working properly. It remains on even when i shutdown the laptop.


if you are using vista then you have to tell it to shut down under the start button otherwise it stays in rediness mode. it is the only thing that i really dont like about vista

Go to Start > Run and type services.msc. Locate the nVidia Driver Helper item and right click it. Select Properties. Set the startup value of the service to “Manual” or “Disabled”.
Your computer should shut down normally now.

You can do one thing disable the startup items from the msconfig.

Go to start -->Run-->Type msconfig --> open the startup tab -->uncheck or disable all items listed here.

If you face any difficulty add more details, so we can further investigate the problem.

This seems to be a problem with the graphics driver. Find out what graphics chip you have, and download the latest driver.

From what I see you have an ATI Radeon HD 3470 Graphics

You seem to be onto things (though your problem classification was generic instead of for your Toshiba model A305.) Install all the updated drivers for your laptop from the laptop's support site (Toshiba's, that is) so you can use your drive. Drives fail sometimes, and you could try sticking an old movie or something in there instead of nothing, but it is likely it is just the missing driver.
