Question about Toshiba Satellite A65-S126 Notebook

1 Answer

I Installed and ran Autoruns utility program on Toshiba A65 laptop. I disabled what I thought were some harmless not being used files. But when I restarted I was stuck on the Toshiba welcome screen with no cursor capabilities. So I manually powered down and restarted. Now all I get is a blank screen. The Recovery DVD won't work since laptop is probably not set to boot first from the CD-ROM. Safe mode and BIOS keys don't work. Do I need a professional to remove the hard drive and reinstate the system files I removed?

    So am I assuming there is no magic trick I can do to get into the system. That only a professional has the equipment to gain access into the system? If I could at least get into the BIOS somehow and set the CD-ROM to boot first, I would think my Recovery Disk would then work. Of course, my first option would be to do a system restore.

    I fixed the problem. I disconnected and reconnected my hard disk drive and it booted up.

You probably have to send it to a technician to reload the OS.
When experimenting with configuration changes, the safest way is to use Pc Laptop Guard.
It will allow you to make any changes and see the results without risking the computers integrity.
When you are done with your experiment, you can choose to erase the changes made, or to keep them permanently.

Start up is very slow and its hanging all the process is stopping with hang what can i do will u pls help me to come out of this problem


this problem may be attributed to many programs loading during start up

Startup tasks can be easily disabled with the help of a utility by Microsoft called Autoruns. You can download Autoruns from this link. After download, unzip and run Autoruns.exe . It will load like snapshot below. Click on Logon tab as shown in red circle in picture below.

autoruns-snap3.jpg

Logon tab shows all the tasks which are automatically start every time windows starts. Have a close look and disable some of the tasks which you don't need at startup. For example, in some computers, at logon, web cam software, acrobat reader, real player up-dater, yahoo messenger , etc. applications start running while you may not be needing the all the time.

To disable un-necessary items to load at logon, simply un-check those items in the log-on tab as above. These applications can be started later when needed from start menu. After un-checking, just restart your computer and see the difference.

Startup programs sometimes late


The reason for start up programs running late is because there are more programs installed in the computer and it takes lots of time to get these programs to run during startup. Some of these programs are not too useful but will always delay a computer startup. More and more people are becoming aware of how important it is to take control of the "autorun" programs on their PCs. In case you didn't know, an autorun or startup program will launch automatically when Windows starts. Quite often, it's a useful program and you can find it's icon in the system tray. However, sometimes an autorun is not that useful. You may not know it's installed because it's hidden or you've forgotten you installed it. When that happens, these not so useful programs are taking up processor cycles and eating up system memory. Your PC gets slower as more hidden programs are launched as an autorun. Fortunately, there are several ways to take control of the autorun programs. Windows has a utility built in called "msconfig", and there are also quite a few third party autorun apps such as this one: Autoruns by Sysinternals. Autoruns is offered for download as a ZIP file. To install it, extract the ZIP file to a folder somewhere on your PC. You'll see the following four files in the folder. lonerangerx7.png

Double click the "autoruns.exe" file to launch the program. Here's a peek at Autoruns in action. lonerangerx7_0.png

If you find a program you aren't familiar with, you can right click on it and choose the "Search Online" task. That will open your web browser and send you to the search results for the file or process that you have highlighted. In order to stop a program from running at startup, you can remove the little check-mark beside it. The interface may look confusing at first, but if you run into any problems, you can always consult the built in help from the top menu. I hope this explanation helps in solving your problems

1) Open internet explorer -> Tools-> Internet options ->General -> Browsing History -> Delete -> Check all boxes -> Delete. (IE 8, The process is quite similar in other browsers as well)

2)For XP
Start-> Run-> type temp-> Ok-> Select all-> (Shift +Delete)

For vista

3) For XP
Start-> Run -> type %temp%-> Ok-> Select all -> (shift+delete)

For Vista
Start-> Start Search-> type %temp%-> Ok-> Select all-> (Shift +Delete)

4) Turn off laptop, Remove battery , Remove AC adapter, Press power button for 2 minutes. Put both back on. Turn on laptop.

5) Run virus scan and check for malware and other virus related issues. If anything is found delete the infected files.

6)
For XP
Go to Control Panel-> Add and remove programs-> Remove all unnecessary softwares

For Vista
Go to Control Panel-> programs-> Installed Progams->Remove all unnecessary softwares

Syn pad has stopped working. Easynote SB88-P007


Try holding "Fn" (function) and then tap "F9" (key on the top row).

That disables/enables most Toshiba trackpads.

Failing that, go to http://support.toshiba.com/ then into support, choose your laptop, etc etc, and download the trackpad utility (if it's not already installed)

I think Toshiba use Synaptics trackpads... so look for that in your start-programs first. You can disable and enable it through there, but it's more likely someone accidentally Fn+F9 'd it in the first place! =-]

First uninstall and program you don't use with Add/Remove Programs.
Look in Start - Programs - StartUp to see some of them. You can delete these safely if you want.

Use AutoRuns to see what other startup programs you have and where they are located.
www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/Autoruns.html


You can also Start - Run - MSCONFIG and use Startup tab to enable or dissble some programs and then reboot to see if it still works OK. If not then you can just run MSCONFIG again and tick the box to put them back in again.

Failure to load windows


If you can try a different hard drive. And make sure the format of the hard drive that's installed doesn't freeze or doesn't complete.
Those are just the first things that popped into my mind,
I'm sure other's will have more suggestions.
Good luck.
