Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

1 Answer

The clock on my laptop keeps setting to zero when I shut down. It seem to happen after a windows update. I'm running vista. Can anyone give me a solution. I have to keep putting the computer to sleep rather than shut down to avoid the reset. Geoff

It sounds like your CMOS battery is dead. The CMOS battery keeps the date and time current as well as your BIOS settings when power has been turned off to the system. Check your system for the current type of battery your Toshiba uses. It either uses a disc type of battery that sits in a socket, or it has a disc type that is in a covering and attaches to the motherboard via a small cable.

Satellite PSAGCA-06M01N keeps restarting when i try to upgrade windows


Computer randomly restarts is not something unique happened to you. Sometimes there is a dreadful total crash of the system and sometime it sends different errors, upon restarting nothing happens.

-- First of all disable the auto-restart option from your control panel settings
-- Remove any recently installed maliciously software/add-on or any other application or toolbar.
-- Try to cool down your PC as the overheating due to overuse of computer may result in system freezing and sudden restarting.
-- Update your BIOS.
-- Update the drivers
-- Make it sure the error is not caused by the deficient power supply. You may try to change the power supply.
-- Conduct the registry clean up scan for quick fix of the problem.
-- Remove flashy games and/or untrusted antiviruses/antispywares. Conduct the security scan through the most powerful scanners only.
I would recommend to use a system utility tool like PCFresher to fix windows errors and registry errors. Then try updating hope problem is fixed.

as long as you are not having a hardware issue, windows 7 fixes alot of vistanogo's problems. i would recommend windows 7 professional for mixed home office use and 64 bit. if you are having alot of blue screens, i recommend trying to reload windows to factory settings. the 0(zero) key is the one you press and hold with eht battery out and connected to dc power to get to the restore partition. follow the prompts and reinstall. if this works reinstall all the updates for vista up to and to include service pack 2. then purchase windows 7(do not recommend pirated software because of the risk of viruses and errors). install the update to windows 7 option and repost on your findings.

My Dell laptop is stuck on Windows Vista Home Basic


Press F8 to go to Safe mode, open SYSTEM RESTORE to go back to checkpoint where not yet updated the system.
And next time to open back your system normally finished all updates before you shut down.
Good luck!

Hp dv9000 will not shut down or burna disc correctly


What error message is being 'thrown'?
If your system boots and runs take a look at the "Event Logs" on your system. They can reveal a lot of information.

Have you added any new software to your system? Have you had any "Automatic Updates"downloaded and installed? WIN XP SP3 has been known to cause a few problems. Try un-installing WIN XP SP3 and see if this helps.

Do you have a virus program and an anti-spyware program? If you do update them and run them. Let me know what happens. Binary Bob
