Problem with Toshiba Laptop A215-S7437

We just bought this computer about 3 months ago. But we have encountered a problem. You can be working away and all of a sudden it will go blank. Nothing will work except to push the power button till it's completely turned off and then turn it back on again. Not sure if it is a hardware problem or a software problem with Vista. Do you have any suggestions as to what might the problem could be?

With laptops in particular, a hasty return for service is usually in order. It should still be under warranty.

If you go into control panel and check out your power options. Make sure that your system is set to never shut off the monitor. This will of course waste battery power (if you run off battery) so you will have to decide which is best for you.
If the power settings are not to blame then maybe you do have a hardware issue. Some laptops have a hotkey combination that if coincidentally you are typing and you press the right key combination you send it into hibernation. You can check this via the power settings.

I have a toshiba A215-S7437 and i get the error message read disk error when trying to boot up


A disk error is a fatal error on the hard drive, SMART monitoring will show you this in the BIOS, restoring to factory settings will not cure it.
You need to get a new hard disk and reinstall your OS

Under the main heading - Toshiba, go down to the subheading -
Satellite A10. (A10 in blue)
Go across, and click on A215. (In blue)

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name { A215 }, it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

The motherboard diagram follows this diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The CPU is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 TL-58, (Turion Core ), mobile Processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_mobile_microprocessors#.22Tyler.22_.2865_nm.29_2


Processor has two processor cores that can operate up to 1900MegaHertz, or also stated as 1.9GigaHertz.
(1900MHz/1.9GHz)

Display not working, computer turns on


Step 1.
Attach a regular CRT to the monitor port on the back of your system. You'll be able to use
the computer as before using the CRT as your display rather than the system LCD display.
Step 2.
Use your computer software (you didn't mention what OS you're running), hunt up any/all
vendor-supplied video diagnostics for your system, or download the manual for
your computer at:

Toshiba Satellite A215-S7437 Laptop Password Problem?


You should first check if the pasword is set on the hard drive. If so you can simply change the hard drive and it will then boot and ask for the operating system disk. If not, you should try by removing the cmos battery and waiting at least 10 minutes. (this works on older laptops) however, the laptop's power suply cable and battery should be removed prior to performing this procedure.
