Toshiba laptop restarting


The loop on your Toshiba Satellite laptop refers to the computer not booting properly.

During the loop, the computer will try to boot the Windows operating system and keep restarting over and over again.


This is not a hardware issue with your Toshiba Satellite A106.

The issue resides in the startup files on your computer's hard drive.


You can fix this by running a repair tool that comes with your Windows operating system.

This repair tool will fix your startup disk and allow you to get your computer back up and running.


Insert your Windows 7 installation disc into your computer's optical drive.


Start your computer and wait for it to boot from the install disc.


Choose your language from the menu and then click the "Next" button.


Click "Repair your computer" from the menu.


Choose the operating system you are using and then click the "Next" button.


Click on the "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" button to disable the startup loop.


Click the "Startup Repair" tool from the menu and wait for the computer to fix your startup disk.


Wait for the computer to finish repairing your startup disk and then allow it to restart automatically.


Wait for the computer to boot correctly to your login screen.


Hope this helps

I hav SE w705.when ever i download any theme the menu icons dont change so im lukin for a theme that will change my menu icon .pls help


You should need to unlock your phone and install some specific software to modify your phonev4ndre_5.jpg there is some programs and special firmwares to reflash your cell phone, but the procedure is very dangerous, do it at your own risk...

1. Download the SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Service) program from the main SE page. (Navigate to your phone model and download "Update Service" program at the download section.


2. After downloading the SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Service. I will write only SEUS in the rows below) you need to make your computer ready for the update process by installing USB flash drivers for your phone. These USB drivers are not the sandard ones and it's installation is a bit different comparing to the standard ones. So to install USB flash drivers (I hope you're using Windows XP) the procedure is the folowing:
- Turn off the phone;
- Remove the battery;
- Remove the Sim card;
- Place the battery in the phone again;
- While your phone is turned off connect it to your computer via the USB cable holding the C button on the phone pressed down all the time. (Tips: "Do not release the C button until you're prompted to do it" , "REMOVE the SIM card from the phone before starting the update process" , " Keep your phone turned off when connecting it to the computer holding the C button pressed down")
- Your computer will recognize the phone now as new hardware (USB Flash Device) and then you will need to install the USB Flash Drivers for your phone. Follow the Windows new hardware wizard. It will prompt you to insert the CD for your new hardware. The flash USB drivers are in the PC Suite CD you got when you bought the phone.
- After the Drivers setup is finished successfully, plug out the phone from the cable and restart your computer. Restarting is recommended, so do not try to start the update procedure without restart.

3. The next thing you have to do is to install the SEUS program you downloaded from the main SE website (the link above). It's setup is easy and it will install in a couple of minutes. After SEUS program is installed, restart the computer again.

4. Now you can start the update process for your phone. If everything is OK it should be like this:
- First I would like to recommend you to not start the update process if you have very slow or unstable internet connection, because the new software for the phone is downloded directly from the Internet and it does not have to be interrupted with anything;
- Quit your all running programs (This is recommended if you have antivirus or firewall software which blocks the network activity of untrusted applications. If you have one like this, give the SEUS program unlimited permision to access the web anytime it needs. Or the best, turn off that software.);
- Start the SEUS program you installed;
- Then you need to follow the instructions from the wizard;
- When asked, turn off the phone;
- Remove the SIM card'
- Connect it to the computer holding the C button (Tip: Release the C button only when you are prompted to do that. Releasing the C button earlier than it need to be will interrupt the update process so you can kill your phone. Some computers won't prompt for release the C button so you can release it when the updating procedure is started.);
- Then you will see an animated picture of some gray phone connected to computer via the USB cable. In this step you can release the C button and wait while the wizard is downloading the new software for your phone and installing it. You can see the status of the flashing procedure in the screen on that gray phone on the picture. Its display will start to fill with green from the bottom to the top of the screen;
- When done the updating procedure, click the update process you will be prompted to plug out your phone from the computer and close the wizard. With that, the update procedure is successfully completed;

5. Now you'll need to see the success of your work by Turning the phone on, but when you finish the update procedure do not remove the battery to insert the SIM card. Try to turn the phone on when you plug it off the computer. Keep the power on button pressed down for some time. It won't turn on fast as usual. If it does not turn on, remove the battery then. Insert the SIM card. Let the battery out for 2-3 minutes and try turning it on again. If the update procedure is made as it needs to be, the phone will surely turn on (but not fast as usual, but it is only for the first time.).

Good Luck. smile.gif

How can i fix this error code? error code :


Is this for a Realtek audio driver? Try this: Here is the solution:
  • Open Device Manager (Start> Control Panel> System> Hardware)
  • In the "View" menu , select "Devices by connection":

2640-device-man-s-.png
  • Disable and uninstall by right clicking on "Bus Driver for Microsoft UAA High Definition Audio":
  • You can now install the drivers normally and without error.
If you still have problems, uninstall and delete the audio driver file and get a new driver file, it could be corrupt, or even the wrong one. A great program for locating current driver files is Drivermax...I love that program. You can download 2 drivers a day for free with it.

My hp 7965 pc desktop (pavillion) starts fine but when loading windows xp, it gets to a piont and restarts the computer completely, over and over again. HELP please!!


Some Software Applications May Cause Windows Stop Responding or Restart During Startup or Boot in Windows XP.

If a PC that has been working properly fails to startup or boot, especially after a new application or driver is installed, it is necessary to perform one or more of the following methods to correct the problem. The PC may lockup, freeze, hang, or automatically restart when the Windows Desktop first displays during startup.
Method 1: Disabling automatic restart
This method disables automatic restart if you are unable to view Windows Desktop and/or the notebook continues rebooting automatically (whether by the user or the notebook continues booting without user intervention).
1. During the rebooting process, repeatedly press the F8 key to enter Windows Advance Options Menu.
2. Use the up and down arrow keys to select Disable automatic restart on system failure and then press the Enter key.
3. Use up and down arrow keys to select the operating system to start (if more than one OS is installed).
4. Press the Enter key. Windows should start.

Method 2: Use last known good configuration
Using the last known good configuration may allow the pc to boot to Windows using the most recent settings that worked.
1. During the rebooting process, repeatedly press the F8 key to enter Windows Advance Options Menu.
2. Use the up and down arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) and then press the Enter key.
3. Use up and down arrow keys to select the operating system to start (if more than one OS is installed).
4.Press the Enter key.

Method 3: Use System Restore to reset Windows to an earlier known safe operating point
This method reverses recent operating system changes to the notebook PC, such as the installation of new software, and takes the computer back to a previous working state. This method may uninstall or remove the software that is causing the problem. Check with the software manufacturer for any known problems and reinstall the software if appropriate.
1. Start Windows in the Safe Mode as follows:
- Remove any disks or CDs, and disconnect any external devices or peripherals.
- Press and hold the Power button for 5 seconds to turn off the computer.
- Press the Power button to turn on the computer.
- Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.
- From the Windows Advanced Start-up menu, select Safe Mode and press ENTER .
The computer may run slower in the Safe Mode and the desktop will not look as nice due to reduced colors.
2. Click Start , then click Help and Support .
3. On the Help and Support home page, click System Restore .
4. On the System Restore page, select the Restore my computer to an earlier time option and click Next .
5. Navigate through the calendar looking for a highlighted date and select a restore point date and time that is earlier than when you started experiencing the problem, then click Next .
The computer should shut down and turn back on by itself after the restoration completes. When the Restoration Complete window appears, click OK to continue.

Method 4: Uninstall recently installed applications using Add/Remove Programs
1. Start Windows in the Safe Mode as follows:
- Remove any disks or CDs, and disconnect any external devices or peripherals.
- Press and hold the Power button for 15 seconds to turn off the computer.
- Press the Power button to turn on the computer.
- Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.
- From the Windows Start-up menu, select Safe Mode and press ENTER .
The computer may run slower in Safe Mode and the desktop will not look as nice due to reduced colors.
2. On the Windows taskbar click Start , click Control Panel and then click Add or Remove Programs .
3. Navigate through the alphabetical list of all installed programs and select the name of the most recently installed program or programs.
4. Click Remove , click OK when prompted to verify the removal of the program.
5. Restart the computer by selecting Start , Shutdown , and Restart .
- If the computer starts up properly, contact the software manufacturer for updated instructions for a proper installation.
- If the computer does not start up properly, reboot the computer in the Safe Mode and repeat the methods for uninstalling any other recently installed software.

Method 5: Remove applications that load during startup using the System Configuration Utility
If the system fails to start properly after installing a new software application, there may be conflicts with the application if it loads during startup. To resolve the problem, it may be necessary to use the System Configuration Utility to remove the application from Windows startup, or to change the startup sequence.
1. Start Windows in the Safe Mode as follows:
- Remove any disks or CDs, and disconnect any external devices or peripherals.
- Press and hold the Power button for 15 seconds to turn off the computer.
- Press the Power button to turn on the computer.
- Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.
- From the Windows Start-up menu, select Safe Mode and click ENTER .
The computer may run slower in Safe Mode and the desktop will not look as nice due to reduced colors.
2. Click Start , click Run , type MSCONFIG , then click OK .
3. On the System Configuration Utility window, on the General tab, select Selective Startup option, and unselect the Load Startup Items .
4. Click OK and then click Restart .
The computer should restart and operate properly even without loading any of the startup items. Most startup items are helpful utilities that run in the background or sit in the system tray until they are needed.
- If the computer does not restart and operate properly, there is a more severe problem and performing the method for reinstalling the Windows OS may be necessary.
- If the computer restarts properly, examine and enable the entries under the startup tab.
