I have reinstalled to factory settings many times and i have the same problem every time. I have a Toshiba Tecra A7 PTA71A-012003, it is my notebook from where i work someone installed Vista on it before I got it and I was given the factory settings disk and told to change it back to XP Pro 2002 service pack 2. Now my notebook stutters and the video stutters aswell. I need another solution apart from reinstalling back to factory settings as that just does not work!! and on top of that my boss has now got my disk so I can't and I can't get any help from work it's like worldwar 3 as we are in the middle of a take over and everyone has lost their minds however I need my computer working as people are despately relying on me.

Re: stuttering Tecra A7
It sounds like you havent installed the graphic drivers for video card. When you installed xp did you formatt the hard drive and do a clean install? Drivers for the graphics and chipset can be found on the makers website.

You may trying pulling the battery out while its unplugged. Another issue may be the socket where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop. Is it loose, broken prong inside the socket. It should have been able to power up at least for a brief moment just on the battery. Hope this helps ya.
I would max out my memory before i would buy another processor. if your mem is maxed out at this time, try XP smoker. its a really good optimizer geared for windows. it will make your cpu 3 times as fast as the current processing rate you are experiencing now.
