Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
My Toshiba Satellite A105-S2712 Notebook PC with Windows XP Home Edition will allow me to access the card but when the symbols in the window begin to be replaced with thumbnail photos the system freezes. My only option is to turn it off using the power button instead of being able to do a proper shutdown. This was not always the case. For over two years, both my husband and I loaded our photos without any problems, but in late September 2008, we both suddenly encountered this problem. I don't know if it's related or not, but at about the same time, another problem began. When I successfully save data to a CD or DVD, then eject the disk, a blue screen pops up showing an error. If these problems are not related to each other, please address them separately.
This sounds like microsoft have updated updated windows quietly and in dooing so have broken the drivers for the card reader or dvd - another alternative is your onboard memory is faulty - the first should be easy to fix - go to the toshiba driver page here ->
and look for the downloads pages for your machine - see if there are new driver packages and install them. If this does not fix the problem then I suggest downloading a small memory testing program - available from many places - just google - and check your system memory for faults.
if it does show faulting then contact toshiba for replacement memory if its still warrantied or take it to a reputable dealer if not
hope this helps - cheers
