Problems with Toshiba Satellite A135

We have only had our A135 for about 5 months and have random problems with it:

1) we close the monitor with the power still on and when we open the monitor back up we get a message along the lines of windows was not shut down properly and the option to start normal, in safe mode, etc...any ideas why the CPU would just shut down?

2) Sometimes we will boot our computer and the icons will be rearranged on the desktop, the system time/date will be changed. Ran virus, spyware software and found nothing.

Thank you for the suggestions

Re: Problems with Toshiba Satellite A135

It sounds like you need to adjust your setting when you close the lid. If you set it to do nothing when the lid closes that should sort out your problem. Often it won't let you adjust them so if you uninstall the power management and then do the adjustments in the power settings then you should be ok

Toshiba Satellite A505 - Most of the time when I turn it on the screen is grey, with no text.

This sounds like a bad display on the laptop. Hook up an external monitor to the vga port on the laptop. You may need to toggle the display to output to the external monitor. This is generally accomplished by pressing the "FN" key + one of the F# keys. Look for an icon that resembles a monitor or it may say LCD. If the graphics display correctly on the external monitor, then you will need to replace the computer screen.

Laptop monitor goes black

If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website ( & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

I hope this helps.
