Re: Toshiba a105-s4074

Another user asked the same question only he wanted a different os on each partition.

As far as start up time. You can add more Ram or you can go into the bios and see if some type of test or diagnostics are turned on that you can turn off.

If the computer in general is slow, then defrag would help speed up the hard drive.

The other is
start , run , cmd, enter
chkdsk /r

Do you wish to reboot then run chkdsk on nest start up,,,,, Hit yes.

Looking free download toshiba A105-S4074

I'm going to guess that you want the installation disks for this Toshiba. I can't help you with that as any unauthorised copies are not legal. Microsoft do not allow free copies of installation disks.

Toshiba sell the recovery disks for around about £18 UKP Call their technical support line to order them. Or you could install a vanilla copy of the operating system and download and install the drivers from

Toshiba A105-S4074 laptop's monitor has no backlight

Use the VGA port to connect an external monitor, this will get you up and running temporarily until you can fix the screen, it sounds like you have a faulty inverter.

Toshiba Satellite A-105-S4074, Screen goes black and system locks up. power still on. Does this on start up and also after running for awhile. Fan operates and I have a cool pad.

Well here it goes!
I believe you have a bad section on your hard drive.
You may need to reformat your hard drive and restore your operating system.

Toshiba has in the past given their owners the original disks so that you can do this.
First off if you can copy and store any of your files when it comes back up and works for some time so that you can load these files back on when the laptop's fully restored.
Time consuming but it works.
The only thought also is to replace the drive with a new one so that there will be no bad sections/sectors. These drives aren't too expensive anymore and you will get a new one with a lot more space on it.
Look into a USB external drive also. These are comming down greatly in price and you can offload or copy files to this drive and then after you repair the old drive or install the new one. Reload all your files back on to your laptop if you wish.

Freezing up

I think you need to do a power cycle. remove the battery and use tha AC adapter alone. If it boots, then thats good. U can try also booting on safe mode by pressing F8. Then re start the notebook in normal mode. If it wont works then i think u need to reinstall windows as a last resort. U need to use TOSHIBA RECOVERY DISK this time.
