Toshiba Satellite A85-107 PC

This toshiba that is discribed in the subject has been working properly. I left it in my room and went out of town for work. I stayed for about three months. When I returned last week, the pc was put on and while working in MS Word, the PC froze. I cut it off and back on. It froze after some minutes and keep freezing.

The harddrive was formatted and operating system changed from windows XP service pack1 to pack2, it continue to freeze and formatted again and change to Pack3, it still freezing. Please help me.

This could be due to a bad memory chip, or an overheating problem as the fan isn't working properly. First start by removing the service pack three, it has some issues and has been known to cause software conflicts. Service pack two is just fine. Then, if the problem persists, check to see if the fan is working and running in regular intervals, then the memory.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A105-S101 it was working well then it was left idle for one month then when i tried to update the screen went Blank/black screen, switch is on, no bios set up, no avg out,...


Dead PC

Possibly a RAM issue or errors on the hard drive stopping the display driver from working properly. Remove power sources, remove RAM and hard drive. See if you get a display when the power adapter is reconnected. If you do, remove power source and fit RAM, (if not motherboard may be faulty). Repeat and if still working, remove power, fit Hard Drive and boot again.
Assuming your OS is Windows Based;
Reboot and use safe mode run CHKDSK/F and when finished check the drivers.

Hope that helps.

Toshiba m35x screen won't come on and beeps - one then three then three and one


The beeps that you are discribing unfortunatly point to a faulty motherboard, If the notebook is still under warrenty then it would be worth exchanging it for a new one.

That's just the way Windows works when power is cut off. You should set your Control Panel/Power settings to put the PC into hibernation if it's left alone for too long.

LAPTOP WENT TO BLACK SCREEN AND WHEN REBOOTED IT ASKS FOR A PASSWORD, WHICH I NEVER SET UP. TOSHIBA SATELLITE VISTA BASIC.


This happens with some Toshiba models. You can try holding down the left shift key or left control key while it boots up. If that doesn't work then the BIOS is messed. There's a fix for it apparently but that doesn't help you when you can't even get into windows! It's a firmware upgrade. If you recently purchased it, take it back to the shop. You could also try calling support for Toshiba. They may offer a free easy fix. I would hope.

Toshiba setellite black out


Sounds like the back light on the screen isn't working properly which will need to be replaced if this is the case. Check for a very dark image on the screen when it is booting up in a well lit room, if you can see the computer start up then it is the back light.
