Toshiba A215-S4697 wont go past black welcome screen

I have Vista on my Toshiba A215-S4697 and I followed this instructional video on youtube to make it run faster:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PovStPMrnE

Ever since I did this my computer sometimes will not go past the Black Toshiba Welcome Screen. I have to press the power button to turn off and then turn on the laptop. After about 5-10 times of doing this it boots and I'm in. Is there something I can do to fix this problem? I would love for my laptop to boot up right away when I turn it on.

    Also, I tried pressing F2 and F12, but it stays on the same black screen. I also tried pressing other keys and nothing happens.

In my opinion I would reverse what was done in the video. if thats not possible I would do a comlete resotre of the o/s with your restore dvd or by pressing f11 or f10 on startup and follow the directions

My Toshiba A215-S4697 froze and I shut it off by holding the power button down. When I went to turn it back on the power light came on but the Satelitte light didn't. The screen wasn't on either and the...


it could have failed,but its more likely you have sequential procedures for the power button,like holding it down for more than 5 seconds etc--you might have just put your machine into "standby mode"--check manufacturers site for power key process--good luck!

Toshiba a215-s4697 locate bios battery, becuase i can not remember my bios password so i cant do anything with my laptop


Hello,
I am not sure that the removal of the CMOS battery would erase the passord on boot. Better take it to a Toshiba Certified Service Center.
Hope it helps.

Crazy graphics misfire on Bioshock. Makes it totally unplayable. What do I need to do? New drivers? Help. I'm a relative newbie at this.


your graphics card cannot display the newer shader models this game uses. That is why everything looks as odd as it does. shader models are only upgradeable via hardware not software so new drivers wont help. and typically you cannot upgrade GFX on laptops. Sorry, you will need a Desktop system with a 6x nvidia chipset or ATI of similar power. I'd recommend though the 8x series though. (8800 or higher or equivilant)
