Question about Toshiba Portege M205-S810 Tablet PC

1 Answer

Random Fatal Stop Error

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 disconnected.

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)

Thank you...

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.

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.

I get message kindle store encountered an unexpected error I now cannot books please correct the error

Amazon very recently slipped an operating system update on Kindle Paperwhite users. They downloaded it to mine when I was connected to Wi-Fi and I never even noticed it. But, I did get a new
title on the home page that it had been upgraded and to go to the Cloud and download the new Users Manual. But, what I noticed is that it never did a restart and I think it needs to do a restart in order for it to solidify the new operating system. I also couldn't connect to the Store with the new O/S.

I did a manual Restart. This is how to do it:

1) on the Homescreen touch the icon that consists of three horizontal bars (upper right)

2) on the drop down menu touch *Settings*

3) Again touch the icon with three horizontal bars.

4) On the drop down menu, touch *Restart* being careful to NOT touch *Reset Device*

Your Kindle will shut down. Now push the power button and wait
for it to reboot. It will take a minute or two but it will process and solidify the new O/S and it should be good to connect to the Store

At least mine did. I'm hoping yours will, too.

I had a notice that there was an important system upgrade about 2 weeks ago. I allowed the update. After that, when I turn the tablet off, it stays off for about 10 seconds and then turns itself back on....

Wait for the next upgrade. They should fix it because you are not the only one, pretty sure. (call them and get their tech support to acknowledge it also, if you can)

Kindle fire has red battery showing. I have charged it but it wont work

It may be the power cord but it is possible that your Kindle Fire's battery has died. If you noticed the battery life diminishing before it started flashing a red battery symbol this may be the case. Here is a site that has replacement batteries for the Kindle Fire:

Why is my archos constantly freezing?

It may be because the programs you're trying to load require large amounts of processing power and large amounts of RAM for it to run smoothly. Try reformatting it (if possible) to see if the error persists, which should give you a clear indication whether it was some random error with Android (if the error is gone).
