Question about Computers & Internet
Every time I turn my PC on it brings to this screen and I want to completely recover it. Help please, it\'s my only communication with my husband right now!
I need the model number Jasmine. I can see it is a Toshiba. The model number is on the Bottom of the laptop.
Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527
It is the A135 that I need. Post back in a Comment.
\'Armed\' with this information, I will guide you in removing ALL power.
Then finding the Hard drive Compartment Cover on the bottom of the laptop. Whereupon you will be instructed to remove any fastening screws, which hold the Hard drive Caddy in place, and remove the Hard drive.
(Sheet metal casing around Hard drive, is Hard drive Caddy.
When Hard drive is replaced, the caddy is removed from the old hard drive, then the new hard drive is installed in the caddy; and both units are installed together back into the laptop)
Using a Toshiba Satellite C650 (Or C650D), as an example;
(You can click on any photo to enlarge)
Diagnoses at this point, is just to ensure the Hard drive has a good connection. Removal and re-installation will ensure this.
After the hard drive is ensured to be seated correctly, then the Hard drive Compartment Cover is reinstalled; and all power.
(Battery FIRST, then AC adapter)
Chances are the Hard drive may be going bad. In this case all personal documents are copied off. Photos, videos, music, documents you have created, or downloaded.
The Hard drive is removed from the laptop, and installed in an economical external enclosure. The external enclosure has a USB cable attached to it. To retrieve your personal documents, the external enclosure\'s USB cable; is plugged into any working computer\'s USB port.
Then the personal documentation is copied off. More on this when the needed information is posted.
[If I may;
The library also has computers you can use, until yours if fixed.
Not the same, I agree; but at least a form of communication.
I am a veteran. If your husband is also; please thank him for his service, for me ]

First - re-seat the hard
disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and
go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it
doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

SOURCE: WinXP can't start.
it maybe that the bios chip is faulty or stuck in a loop as what it seems to be doing is trying to run the bios flash programme. Next time the pc boots up press F2 or Del and in the cmos settings see if the time and date is correct, if not correct it and look in all the menus for something similair to bios flash utility updates and dissable it if enabled or select off, save settings and exit for a reboot. Hopefully it will stop, that's if you can get into the bios without this programme flashing up. If you cannot stop it you will need to reset the bios and the only way may be to remove the bottom compartments of the laptop and look on the motherboard for the cmos flat round shaped battery and remove it for 10 minutes or so and then replace and try again, or only other option is to speak to sony technical as a bios problem is a serious one and cannot sometimes be resolved other than a motherboard replacement i'm afraid.

1.Since darks are persistent,the LED backlights are problem.If it still has time left on the warranty, ask for replacement.Else call technician and replace LED backlights only.

Sounds to me like you have a virus or infection. The fact that it works on in safe mode is the key. Most viruses need the internet connection to function, after all that is how they got into your system (by the internet). Safe Mode does not give you internet connection so the virus is handcuffed and can't function like it does in normal mode.
Boot your system as if you are going into Safe Mode but instead take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity). Download and Install MalwareBytes then run a Quick Scan.
Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download andinstall malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When thesite opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the GuiInterface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version orDecline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run aQUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be inred. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad textdocument will open up showing you the results. You can close the textdocument and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTEDRESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When itfinishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot yourmachine.
