Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
Laptop keyboard doesn't work. I power it on and it goes to "start windows repair or start windows manually" I can't chose one because the keyboard doesn't work. It automatically counts down 30 seconds and starts the repair but 4 seconds later I get a blue screen that says "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor for an updated BIOS." What do I do?
Connect a usb desktop keyboard to your laptop using that keyboard
go on the web as usual, if you still can not get the laptop to work
use another computer and, go to your computer makers website
find your computer model and download the manufacture's bios
software burn to a cd then install the bios flash on your laptop as they direct.

If the laptop was purchased new in November, 2008, the laptop is still under warranty. So, contact Toshiba for repair or replacement.
If not purchased new in November, the battery would probably need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

maybe overheating graphics card, check the fan is actually turning on, usually you can hear it whirring around.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the feedback - turns out it was the motherboard... on to a new computer!..."
SOURCE: Hello, I have Asus f5z, video
This could either be a problem with the graphics driver, or a problem with the graphics card itself.
Try once more downloading the latest version of the driver from here: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonmob_win7-32.aspx and installing it while your computer is running without the graphics driver turned on. Then try re-enabling the graphics driver to see if the updated driver solved the problem.
If updating the driver doesn't work, it's almost certainly a problem with the laptop's video card. If this is the case, you'll want to have it looked at by a professional, or contact Asus support directly to see if they can help you resolve the issue.
Hope this is helpful!
