If you can get video in start mode its not the video card ! It;s more likel;y a sytem file that is corrupted.If you have the skill and the original disk youn could try a system repair you will need to access the Bios and set up the boot sequence so thast the windowsa disk CD is the boot disk. set ATAPI in Bios to be the boot source and then let windows find its slow track to install, repair etc. If repaoir fails you may only be left with the option of deleting the partition the create a new one and allow windows top reinstall.
Before all that happens save any documents and pics or other data that you want to keep while in safe mode.

When you do a repair install, you start your computer from the Widows CD. After the initial items finish loading, the system will ask you if you want to try and repair the install that already exists on your hard drive, or if you want to do a new install. At that point you would choose the repair install. Depending on what is causing the original problem, the Windows CD may not see your original installation. If that is the case, then you must decide if you want to do a fresh install, or attempt to fix your original install in some other manner. One thing to consider; if Windows cannot see your original install, then you have a serious issue. Depending on how important the data on your drive is, you may be looking at having to spend a lot of money to have a forensic hardware specialist attempt to repair the drive. You may also want to have your local computer shop take a look at your system. Most shops have access to some very good tools that you would probably find to expensive to use once.

Window 7 every 20 minutes hang


Many things could be causing this, the first thing I would do is boot into safe mode and see if the issue continues.
Safe Mode

Just before the Windows 7 splash screen (black with windows logo) appears, press the F8 key to enterAdvanced Boot Options.

You should now see the Advanced Boot Options screen. If not, you may have missed the short window of opportunity to press F8 in the previous step and Windows 7 is probably now continuing to boot normally assuming it's able to. If this is the case, just restart your computer and try pressing F8 again.

Here you are presented with three variations of Windows 7 Safe Mode you may enter:

  • Safe Mode - This is the default option and is usually the best choice. This mode will load only the absolute minimum processes necessary to start Windows 7.

Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

No screen on my toshiba 9100


Hi Alex

I suggest going to Safe Mode and see what happens. You do this by tapping F8 right after the Toshiba splash screen. There should be an Advanced Windows Options menu. Choose Safe mode and wait, if everything appears ok then its probably a driver problem, a reinstallation of those should do the trick, if not, then we might be looking at something a little more critical. Let me know what happens.

Cheers;
