The drive is faulty. You need to replace the drive. The reason the DVD still works is because a combo drive has 2 different lasers; one for the CD and one for the DVD. So the CD laser is faulty.

Need the following drivers ...PCI Device...SM Bus Controller...Video Controller (VGA Compatible) for a Toshiba Satellite A105-S101, Windows XP Service 3. I went to Toshiba website...


There are 3 pages of downloads, have you downloaded and installed all relevant drivers?
I have looked about and a few people have had similar problems, but usually on laptops that came with vista and have been downgraded to XP.
The 3rd driver down on the second page is your vga driver

I am sorry but I have to say Vista is probably not the Operating System for your laptop. I decided to downgrade my Toshiba A135-S2276 to Windows XP (click here for an article about that) and it has been running 20 times better ever since. Windows Vista requires at least 2GB of ram, a fast processor and a good graphics card to run correctly, you'll be happier with XP.
