Shutdown and DVD Player problem

I have a newly purchased Toshiba Satellite U400 Laptop

1. My laptop automatically restarts approx. 15 mins. after shutting down if I leave the power adaptor plugged-in. It wont happen if i unplug then plug-in the power adaptor after normal shutdown procedure. My laptop is usually for home use so I want to leave the power adaptor plugged-in, otherwise the batteries might be fully discharged if user forgets to plug-in the power adaptor when using it.

2. The built-in CD-DVD player works good on CD or DVDs playback and/or burning into blank DVD. However, it does not burn images to blank CDs. I had tried updating the driver software and system analysis also indicates that "this device is working properly". Clue: on the DVD properties, it does not show or give a selection for CD burning option.

Not enough video memory to play a DVD?


Go to www.crucial.com download their Advisor program and run it on your machine

It will report how much memory you have on board

1gb is the bottom line for running XP, 2gb for Vista

Using XP and a DVD player it is a 2gb application

3gb if you are running Vista.

Some laptops allow you to limit how much Ram Windows can steal on start up

The wireless switch on my toshiba satellite u400


Is more than likely the wireless LAN card has gone faulty.
If the laptop is no longer under warranty, you will probably find its cheaper to plug in a USB Wireless Dongle.
Not ideal I know but it would be cheaper - and quicker.

  • the computer will ask you if you want to restart or exit without restart, restart the computer
  • when you see your desktop after restarting, put a check mark on "Don't show this message again"
  • observe the computer if it will still freeze.
