Question about Toshiba Satellite P205D-S7438 Notebook
I have a Toshiba Satellite P205 with Windows Vista. While I am using the computer, it appears to go into sleep mode, but I cannot turn it back on. The screen goes blank, but it's still lit up so it's not completely black. The hard drive light is not blinking so I assume the computer is no longer running but I am not certain. I just bought the laptop and thought it must be a lemon so I exchanged it for another and the new one is doing the same thing. It is literally shutting down while I am using it so it can't actually be going into sleep mode and I changed sleep mode settings to not be activated for 45 minutes. Any thoughts? I have that exact problem. Mine is the satellite P205D S7438. I've had mine a little over a year. I called toshiba for support and they had me check settings and such, but it still does it. It drives me crazy! Toshiba technical support is no help at all. I wish I would have purchased a different brand, but I guess I'm stuck with it now. Any one have any info on how or if this can be fixed??
You have to update do BIOS firmware. Just download the new firmware in the official website (version 1.4) and install it in the windows.
my email is firstname.lastname@example.org so If you want to I can send it for you the firmware
