Question about Toshiba Portege M205-S810 Tablet PC
About a week or so ago, I noticed there was a short in my power cord,
and I promptly ordered a new one, but was able to continue using the
laptop as long as I didn't move it much, so the short wouldn't be
Eventually, however, the short became completely non-recoverable, and the laptop's battery dwindled, then went into hibernation. It was in 'hibernation' without any renewed power for 3-5 days.
I received the new power cord, hooked it up, let it charge, and eventually turned it on...
Before actually turning it on, but after charging it, I also moved everything from my apartment into a house, and other people helped me. I don't think anything happened, but I am slightly concerned it may have suffered a bit of moving around, and possibly a bump because of it? Who knows.
Here is where my problem starts. Ever since this moment, the computer randomly flashes a blue screen, then promptly reboots itself. Sometimes the laptop will stay on for hours, or just minutes...and sometimes it occurs within seconds of rebooting, even after coming up from such an error.
First, I tried to restore to an earlier point from before the error. When this did not work, I hooked up the external cd drive and used the system recovery disk to do a FULL system recovery...thinking this would surely fix any problems.
It stayed up for a couple hours, then shut down again, and continued as if nothing changed. -- A few times, after rebooting, the Welcome screen even comes up with a small message explaining that my profile was unable to be loaded, and that I was being sent into a default logon profile. Reformatted again, and it no longer has the logon problem, but it still has the fatal stop error...
I have only had this laptop now since mid-April and paid too much to not be able to fix this. PLEASE help me. <3 (No it is not in warranty, however, I bought it from a friend)
Error reads as follows:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.
***STOP: 0x0000000A (0x00000029, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x805316B5)
Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete.
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.
The driver irql_not_less_or_equal error can have multiple causes, but most of the time it is a hardware/driver issue.
Check if there are any new drivers available for you computer's hardware devices and update them if so.
Running a memory test also does not harm, could be faulty RAM.
