Re: My Toshiba laotp's screen goes half blank help!!

Well try to boot into the safe mode.hit F8 on the startup and see if you get the same acreen.If its working fine in safe mode than you need to reinstall the video driver and that should resolve the issue.If it is still not working try connecting a external moniter.If you get the same display on the external moniter than its an issue with the video card and if you get a normal display on that than its an issue with the Laptop screen and you would ahve to get either of thses replaced by contacting the manufacturer.
Hope this helps!

Win 7 64 bit freeze when starting XiMeta's NDAS NetDisk. I'm using newest version 3.72 from Ximeta website.

I have the same problem. I don't have the right solution but I discovered a workaround.
The problem occurs everytime when I install a windows 7 update.
My work around:
  1. When Windows determines an update I disable the NDAS service with msconfig
  2. The update is installed without the NDAS service operational.
  3. After update I enable the NDAS service with msconfig
  4. I restart my computer. Then it freezes.
  5. After a hard reset, the computer restarts in Safe modus. I restart my computer and my computer works, till the next windows 7 update. Then I start again van 1.
Very suboptimal, but it works.

I have a Toshiba Satellite series laptop that was dropped and the screen was damaged. I've gotten a replacement but I don't want to mess anything up by changing it myself. Anyone have suggestions? I've...

you'll need to pry the screen gently forward(away from the plastic casing)...along the side s of the screen will be the hinge brackets.....4 screws (2 either side) hold the screen in place...undo these screws and the screen will be free....the only thing connecting screen to computer will be the video ribbon cable which connects to the back of the screen via a plastic pressure clip...release the clip and your done.....remember to be very careful when installing the new screen as its easy to overtighten the screws and damage the screen

Memory Installation

look at the hardware documentation and look for a bios reset switch.. that should make the pc usable again.. then i would suggest.. trying a slower ram module.. ie 2300 might work..

Cant Start Up

start with removing the added ram try starting up, if it doesn\t start up does it beep?

if noting happens remove all the ram, the computer should definitely beep now.
Add only the original memory and try starting up you should get picture.

This seems to be a old problem and if you don\t need assistance in solving it. It would be great if you would share to the world how you fixed your problem so other users can benefit from your experience.

Thank you, Ekse

do you have any operating system disks or restore disks, if so re-install with the restore disks and it will be just as it would have been, what operating system are you using, probably windows xp or vista, but most likely solution is to re install the OS, or try exploring any other options given by the error dialog.

Computer shuts itself off

Hey Cidney, Sounds like the laptop is overheating, the machine will restart or turn itself off once the temperature goes over 60-65c. Might be a faulty fan or need the thermal paste replaced on the cpu. best bet is to put it into a shop for a free quote if theres anyone near you. afraid i dont think you will be able to fix it yourself, and can sometimes it can be quite costly.. Sorry cant help anymore All the best John
