Re: Toshiba satellite a105 s4004 cannot boot. When click...

Regarding the Trojan and Spyware issue trashing computers, I've used Norton, and McAfee on my computers in the past years. With a recent laptop purchase for my wife, I decided to go with Trend Micro which Dell now installs on their computers. Istalled it on my wife's laptop, and then decided to install it on a desktop computer that had previously had Norton on it.

The result was that it found about 54 different problems and two critical Trojans all dating back to the Norton time frame of use for their full suite of products. That computer ran slow and was reduced to a boat anchor with Norton on it. Now, it runs better than ever.

I'll qualify this by saying that this is just my experience, I don't work for any of those companies, I was just tired of all the Norton updates, interruptions and hogging of computer resources which MIGHT have been justified if it had worked. However, it almost cost me a computer. No one antivirus software is "full proof". If your computer goes belly up due to bugs, it might be worth swithing brands to find the culprit if your subscription is up.

If the recovery disk would not run to load the program than your hard drive is probably bad have you been into the machine and seen the hard drive have a look at the front where the wires plug in and there is a slot for jumpers to select the hard drive function make sure its set for master only. most hhard drives will not have a jumper for master setting if there is a jumper make sure its set right .

LCD display problem

My Toshiba Satellite does a similar thing, It goes gray while I am working on it. The only way to continue to work on it is to complete shut it down manually and reboot. I took it to Toshiba they said nothing was wrong.
