My laptop makes a sound while starting after shutting down

But no noise on starting after hibernating or during restarting.Also on opening word/excel files the curser is simply moving on so without any touch in space bar/enter keys making it difficult the editing job. when trying to shut down ,the various options such as hibernate,restart etc., are simply scrolling down making it difficult to select a particular action. The touchpad is working just to move cursor from place to place ,let to right,top to bottom etc.,but no action when cursor is brought to a folder and applied smooth touch to open it.To open or close a window, i have to bring the cursor point to closing tool"X" and then click left button of touchpad.This problem started from 0840am on 1-12-08 pl help me immediately

    Whats the sound?



    If it beeps , count the number of beeps and check your documentation as computer beep codes correspond to a problem with a certain piece of hardware , depending on the number of beeps

How to enable hibernation in Windows XP


Hibernation is a low-power mode that laptops use when they are idle in order to save power. A hibernating computer can come back up to ready a lot quicker than a computer that is completely shut down, but it only uses marginally more power while it is hibernating.

To enable hibernation, open the Power Options applet in the Control Panel. Click on the Hibernate tab (the farthest one on the right) and check the box next to "Enable hibernation." Beneath this box you will see the amount of disk space required to use hibernation. (This amount is typically about the same as the amount of RAM you have installed, because when the computer hibernates, everything in RAM is written to the hard drive.) If you do not have enough free hard drive space, you won't be able to use hibernation; delete some old programs or files that you no longer need in order to free up some more room.

Once you have enabled hibernation and clicked Apply, you can tell Windows when to use hibernation. Go to the Advanced tab (still in Power Options). Under the "Power buttons" heading, there are settings for different actions, such as closing your laptop's lid or pressing the power button. If you want your computer to hibernate when any of these actions are performed, just choose Hibernate from the drop down list. You can also make your computer hibernate manually by choosing Hibernate from the shut down options (Start menu > Shut Down).

Your changes will take effect as soon as you click Apply or OK.

Toshiba A215-S4767 will not start up correctly.


First off, Windows just didn't like the way the computer shut off, I would just restart normally and see what happens. Next when it boots up and you get into windows, Go to the control panel > Power Options > go to the hibernation tab and make sure hibernation is unchecked. Next go the setting that reads "shutting the lid". You want to open this setting with a drop down list and pick "Do Nothing", this will keep the laptop from entering standby mode just for shutting the lid. Laptops do not like hibernation or standby modes....windows hates it and will give you all kinds of problems if you continue to use it.

Computer is not starting up in standard windows mode. dell media keeps popping up and when i exit the program my pc shuts down. i tried ctrl and f8 it brings me to a short menu. (1) continue restart...


Are you running Window XP? Is your computer set to hibernate? If so, you may have a hibernation error...

If I understand correctly, while pressing F8 during bootup you received a message that states:
"System restart has been paused:
Continue with system restart.
Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu"

You may wish to read this article about the error. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294427

Then, go ahead and do that second option. What hibernate does is write a big file to the HD with the exact state of Windows. That is a "restoration" file. If hibernate doesn't work, deleting the restoration file will often allow the computer to restart normally.


Good luck! Please post back with your results.

Hibernation


This doesn't sound like a hibernation problem, it sounds to be much deep, motherboard deeper, but let's rule out the hibernation. Unplug the laptop, take out the battery, this will completely shut the machine down. Then put every thing back and restart. If it starts, then disable the hibernation mode in the display properties, screen saver tab, under the button that reads power. If it doesn't start, then the problem is with the motherboard or one of it's components. Take it in for a professional diagnostic, they will be able to tell you exactly where the problem is and if it's a replaceable component.
