Question about Toshiba Satellite C655-S5206

1 Answer

Screen burnout My laptop has been struck with the dreaded BSOD badly lately and the screen down in the lower left hand corner has been getting really warm, making the LCD turn pink with a yellow ring around it. I don't know whether to get a new laptop or just replace the screen and hope for the best. It's barely over a year old and I have had nothing but problems with it since I got it last year. Please help!

Bluescreen can be caused by a number of things Check all power and data leads from motherboard to hard drive and all of your cd/dvd drives make sure connections are secure dust free and not faulty computers need all power and data to travel through every working device and to finish its cycle so any faulty lead will end in computer error or shutdown / fail to boot or to reboot on a cylce Make sure your computers RAM modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also the Cmos battery has charge and seated with no dust in the sockets some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in might be getting hot check your CPU make sure it has a thermal paste and a dust free and secure seating Could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time placing to much strain on the CPU you might not have enough RAM random access memory If you get your computer running to get a screen or even do it in safe mode Restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen. Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option: Safe Mode

Debugging Mode Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice. select the safe mode option You might have to many programs trying to or accessing the internet at the same time scroll to bottom toolbar (bottom of screen) right click select task manager applications you will see whats running if you see anything you dont need running select end now and you might uninstall that specific program if you or computer does not require it to run and some unnecessary programs that could be jamming up your computer also under processes see what is ticking over in the background again if you see something you dont need to be running select end now and users you will see who is using your computer
you might need to add more computer ram if you're not sure if a module is right for your system use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. when purchasing any ram you should always ask if they can guarantee compatibility first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system might be getting hot check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490 or it might be a virus right click in bottom toolbar select task manager applications to see what is running and processes to see what is ticking over http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/security-essentials/product-information malware protection http://100-downloads.com/download.php?p=615 windows xp microsoft security essentials http://100-downloads.com/download.php?p=614 windows 7 microsoft security essentials Hope this helps.

running what, XP? the virus magnet and loves to BSOD>?

my guess is windows, BSODs with a blue screen of *****
as even GILL BATES did on stage long ago?

top reasons are
1: bad power, if laptop take out the big battery.
2: bad RAM. try them 1 by 1. to find which one is bad. if have 2 easy
3: XP is corrupted, as all are, or will soon be, read the news lately?
XP is now Dead for 3 years, and is a virus magnet.
VISTA was shut down this spring.
4: bad video card or its driver bad is super common way to get BSOD.
5: loading PC chip drivers not for you old PC, = BSOD.

Where is the power button on the mac computer


The power button is on the back of the LCD screen in the lower left hand corner. You should power down by clicking on the Apple Logo in the upper left hand front corner and choose "Shut Down". If your screen freezes, you can power off by pushing the power button and holding it.

Why cant i reboot my laptop i press enter and it doesnt work


Enter will not reboot your laptop unless you have the menu pulled up to do a restart. Use your mouse pad and go to the lower left hand corner of your screen you should see a microsoft logo on the very bottom of your screen far left hand side the first button on the bottom lower left hand side. Click on that button and a menu will pop up depending on the version of windows you are using you may see a window with writing in it it may say shut down or sleep but to the right of the window you will see a small triange. Click on that triangle and a drop down will appear select restart and your computer will reboot for you.

I hope this helps you out.
