Question about Toshiba Satellite Laptop with AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor QL-60 - Onyx Blue PC Notebook

1 Answer

Toshiba Laptop - Startup freeze 40% of the time.

The computer is a Toshiba Satellite L355D-S7815 - Athlon X2 QL-60 1.9GHz 3GB 160GB (DVD RW) 17'' - running 32 Bit Vista Home Premium.

The problem is - 40% of the time the Startup freezes. Is it Vista or the BIOS? Or, is it something else?

We noticed this after IE7 was updated to IE8 - but don't know why there would be any correlation.
Toshiba & Microsoft Websites & Forums do not have good answers.

Its a common thing for a vista based system to freeze after some updates , and my good advice to you is you better dont place too many applications on the startup , and avoid unwanted updating , ie8 is one such thing . if u have an option better switch to windows 7 , its really fast on notebook computers . install only defender updates from windows.

HI walkerkenn

try connect your laptop to external monitor.
if you windows can boot normaly, tht mean your screen display got problems

but if still can't boot that mean you must do the troubleshooting process with one by one on your laptop hardware such as ram, hdd or mainboard ( this work need you prepared more computer skill and compenent to make the troubleshooting process )

    Toshiba L355D-S7815 - Spilled Juice - Short Circuit


    Flip the lid open and flip the laptop (opened) and set it on a towel or something. It might take a week or a bit more to dry out. But you might be ok once it does dry out.

    Although the best thing to do is to take it apart. And use a safe cleaner for circuit boards like alcohol (not wood alcohol).

    Since you supplied power while it was wet. You could have have done permanent damage to the intergrated circuits. But let's hope not.
