Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4004 Notebook

2 Answers

BLINKING ICON I have a A105 S2004 Toshiba Laptop, was downloading from Limewire and got a virus, Norton caught it and quarantined it and deleted it. My icons now blink on and off and I can't do anything else on my laptop. Did a defrag, no luck. Did a Full Scan and no virus found. Had some computer guys work on it, and they tell me that I need my start up disk when I bought the laptop. Is there anywhere that I can get a new start up disk for my laptop? Mine is in my storage (I am in the military) and we are heading back to Japan. Would like to fix it as soon as I can.

Buy DVD(2) and Burn"Recovery Disc Creator2" from your own Hard drive, this should have actually been done BEFORE the Crash, But this will Initialize components that were lost or in need of repair at no cost to you and give you a back up for future reference. Thank you TOSHIBA for NOT letting us know this. How do I know this, been there -Done that. A recovery disc will cost you 24.95.

If you want it to be fixed as soon as you can, you can buy a new Operating System Disk for example the Microsoft Windows Xp or buy the same operating system that you are using right now. You can also borrow someones CD that is the same Operating System version that is installed in your computer to reformat your PC right away. When you are using Windows, all you need is the CD Key that is used in your laptop, it is usually written in a sticker under your laptop. When you buy a brand new installer, you will have a new CD key in it. Dont forget to save/back-up all your important files first in an external harddisk, usb flash drive or in a CD first before you start reformatting your computer. Get a help from a computer guy on how to format it. Hope this helps.

Pops up lime wire, curser won't work, extremely slow

Try downloading Avast Free version. I have had great success removing things infected from LimeWire with this software. When you download and get it set up, it will ask if you want to set up a boot scan. Say yes. Let the system re-boot and run. if something pops up it will pop up a window with a siren on it. move everything to the chest. Do not delete anything as it may be a system file that you delete. Lime wire is a haven for viruses. I would suggest getting rid of it.

Compaq presario, can't connect to the internet


Initially, it has to be confirmed that your laptop is virus free before all others could be addressed. Failing to do so would make all subsequent actions suspect. Pls try to:
  • uninstall Norton Antivirus;
  • download, install, run and update Ad-Aware. Please do it twice, immediately after install when normal mode is running, reboot and run again in Safe Mode. Safe Mode is accomplished by pressing F8 before Windows boot. In both instances, quarantine/delete any and all scanned findings;
  • download, install, run and update Avira. Please do it twice, immediatelyafter install when normal mode is running, reboot and run again in SafeMode. Safe Mode is accomplished by pressing F8 before Windows boot. Inboth instances, quarantine/delete any and all scanned findings;
  • reboot in normal mode;
  • press Windows key + R, type "msconfig" less the quotes;
  • click on the Startup tab and un-check everything that says, notifier, update, blank/no entry, registration, reboot;
  • upon reboot, press Ctrl-Alt-Del, press on Performance tab and determine how much is the CPU usage;
  • pls postback here the results.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Puter wont load

Here's an idea, or 2.
Go out on the web, search for and download "Ad-Aware" and "AVG".
Ad-Aware is a mal-ware program and AVG is an anti-virus program.
Both are free and both are excellent.
I don't have the website locations available to me at the moment, but if you need help finding them, I'll dig them out. Caution! There are a number of offerings that want you to pay $10, or so for the download, but don't do that. You can get them for free.
My personal opinion of Norton is that I wouldn't put it on my system, even if it were free.
Try those and if you still have the problem, get back to me and we'll see what we can figure out.
Have a super day!
