Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-ST3211 Notebook

2 Answers

Booting problem I have had my computer for about 8 months and a couple of days I go I went to start it and it will boot up and I can log on, but soon after it will quickly shut itself down. It seems as though it will work for about a minute to a minute and a half before it shuts down. When it does shut down you can hear a little click and then it just shuts off. Any suggestions?

Boot into BIOS and see if it stays on for any ammt of time.. Then try Safe Mode.. (Loads Minimal drivers here).. Also get a can of compressed air and blow the Fan assy Radiators out. These are also Known for DC Jack failure and utilize the same trash Singatron Component HP recently settled out on as far as Class action Litigation. If the DC Jack is the issue pull the battery, Boot into BIOS and wiggle the cord to see if the unit pops off.. If you need more help just yell.

How can i log in my Delloptiplex 760 computer,when its auto logging off


If running XP

A log-on loop on your Windows XP computer is a difficult situation where the computer never completes its boot cycle, restarting intermittently ad nauseam.


This issue indicates a major problem with the boot functionality of your XP system.

Restore the computer to working order by utilizing the repair and restoration utility on your XP system disk.

Insert the XP disk into the computer.


Restart the computer.

Press any key when prompted to boot from the disk.

Press "Enter" at the first screen and "F8" at the license terms.


Highlight the drive containing XP and press "R," repairing the operating system boot files and removing the log-on loop.

or

Windows XP sometimes has a glitch when you are logging in to your user account in order to boot the operating system.

The glitch logs you in and then logs you off the account.


This problem is usually caused by one of the programs that load during the computer's start-up.

Fixing this issue is a matter of ensuring that whatever program is causing the problem doesn't start up as soon as you start your computer.

or


Power on the computer and allow it to get to the user logon page normally.

There is no need to start up the computer in "safe mode."


Click the user who is having the issue and type in the user's password if one is set up.

Press and hold the "shift" button on your computer keyboard as soon as you see the tool bar load up at the bottom of the screen but before any other program has a chance to do so.


This stops any "Startup" program from running and logging you off.


Right-click the "Start" button on the bottom left of your screen.


Select "Explore" from the menu that appears.


Double-click "Programs" from the list on the left side of the window that pops up.


Double-click "Startup."


Select all the files inside the "Startup" folder by dragging a box over them.


Right-click anywhere on the selected files.


Select "Delete" to delete those files.


Note that deleting the programs from the "Startup" folder does not delete them from your computer.


All this does is make it so that these programs no longer start as your computer is starting so that any error in the running of the programs doesn't interfere with logging in to your account.


Hope this helps

I have aCompaq Presario f700,it turns on normal! As soon as the screen with the Windows logo pops up it won't do nothing else it stays on that screen for as long as the laptop is on...Hopefullyyou can...


As soon as your laptop powers on (even before you see anything on the screen), repeatedly tap on F* until it takes you to the advanced boot menu. Choose the option for Last Known Good Configuration and see if it boots. If it doesn't, just restart your pc and repeatedly tap on F8 again to get back to the menu. This time, select Safe Mode. If you're able to boot to safe mode, you can do system restore to restore it to a date when it was last working fine (XP: start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore, Vista/7: start > type system restore on search box).

Computer when i turned it on said disk read erroe occured and now when i try to start it in safe mode it just keeps restatring it self


1
Start up your computer.

2
Immediately insert your Windows XP install CD. As the computer boots, a boot menu will appear (if you did not insert the CD in time, you will not see the menu; in this event, simply reboot the computer again).

3
Select the option to boot from the CD. A setup screen will soon appear.

4
Press the "R" button on your keyboard at the setup screen in order to open the repair console.

5
Type in the administrator account's log in password if you are prompted to do so. If there is no log in password, simply leave the password slot blank and continue. After this step, a command prompt will appear.

6
Type in "chkdsk" (minus the quotation marks) and press "Enter." Allow the operation to run.

7
Type "Exit" (again, minus the quotation marks) when the operation is complete, and press "Enter." If your computer boots correctly, great! If not, move on to the next step.

8
Reboot and repeat Steps 3 through 5.

9
Type "fixboot" (minus the quotation marks) and press "Enter." Once it is complete, repeat Steps 7 to 8.

10
You might need to reinstall your operating system.

Thanks.

Hi,

What you can do is turn the computer off and then when you turn the computer on or as soon as you press the power button to turn the computer on start tapping the F8 key repeatedly until you get a black screen that says advance boot menu option .Then used the arrow keys on the keyboard,highlite the option that says safe mode and then hit enter,select the operating system and then when you get the log on screen select administrator .If it takes you to the desktop then go to start?control panel?user accounts11?select ur account and then click on the option that says delete password.Once it is done restart the computer it should take you to the desktop without you putting in the password.

You can also try this :
  1. Click Start and Run
  2. Type "Control Userpasswords2" and press enter.
  3. Uncheck the box for "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer."
  4. Click Apply and Ok.

all the best...

Cant log in windows!


Restart the computer and as soon as it starts booting up start tapping on F8 key on your keyboard.
The computer would show you advanced boot options.. select "Safe mode" from the list.
When it asks for Administrator's password, leave the password blank and hit enter .. If you have not set any password for the safemode (normally many users don't) then it would log you on and you can go to the control panel and reset the administrator's password or you can even create a new user profile.
Once you complete the above process, restart the computer and let it boot normally.
Now try logging in with the new password or the new user account that you might have created while in the safe mode.

Let me know if that works for you. All the best.
And yes, Do not forget to rate this solution :)

Srinivas.

Bought 6 months ago and will not boot up, with battrey out it will attempt to start for a couple of secs and then nothing


After 8 days of no life at all in the laptop , having 2 computer technicians around saying it was probably the motherboard and just about to send to Sony I pressed the power button and hey presto it worked again..Guess it was just sleeping or hibernating...after all it is spring now....Actually one guy of the many forums I have visited advised just to leave the Laptop alone and perhaps it would mend itself..and hey presto he was right, although having said that I have yet to turn the laptop off and startup again..HMMMMMMM...

Acer 5610z will not start


I had the same problem with my neices Acer 5100...Went into safe mode, it loaded the drivers and sat that for what seemed forever...almost like it was hung up....I had a few things to do...and a couple hours later, it finally booted into safe mode.

I was able to save her files, but ultimatly ended up wiping everything out because of the corrupt files.

On another Acer, the same hang up "unable to boot into safe mode" even after a long period of time, and that Acer was a total loss..had to format...

I presume nothing was saved to a CD? i.e. her gsce files?

Doing a factory restore/reset will loose everything.

Try to boot into safe mode and allow it to boot up...see if it eventually comes up...I will keep reading for a solution other than the two here...and will post as soon as I find one...
Unfortunately, Acer do not have a good fix for most of their computer problems....
