Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 Notebook

Screen is garbled

My Toshiba Satellite screen became garbled yesterday and froze. I have tried restarting it several times, however, the screen came on (with colored lines everywhere) and said "...windows did not start succesfully....recent hardware or software change might have caused this...". I have not added any new hardware or software! When I try to select any of the options like safe mode, start normally, etc. it just shuts down. Now the laptop screen will not even work, I have to use an external monitor to say the same screen as before. I have had so many problems with this laptop (it has been in for repairs 3 times - video card keeps going bad amoungst other things). I just need to get a couple of files off the hard drive before I get someone to service it. Is there any way to do this? (As you can tell I am not well versed with working on computers). Please help!

If you can't get it to start up, then you will not be able to retrieve your files. Any decent tech should have the tools to retrieve the files you need. Tell the tech about the files before hand and he should be able to save them WITHOUT viewing them. Also, this being a hardware issue, the problem should be able to be fixed without having to reload your hard drive, therefore any info on your drive will remain intact.

Sounds like a serious problem with the laptop. Since it's new, I would try to return or exchange the product at the store your bought it at to see if that rectifies the problem.

Without a task bar or icons, you won't be able to go to the recommended restore or recovery console options.

That's why I would recommend that you try to hurry up and get warranty replacement of the product before it's too late.

Good luck on getting a working laptop.

My toshiba wont start it keep's restarting at the black loading screen.


have you done a maintainance on it to get rid of all the excess information?? if not..go to start--then all programs, then accessories, then tools, click on disk cleanup. click on yes to all when the pop up box show up.

after this do a defragmentation-- go to start, all programs, then accessories, then tools, then disk defragmenter. click on analisys-- this will tell you if you need to defrag your system. if yes-- do it..it will take time to defrag, but it will speed up you game play ability.
