I am having alot of problems in my laptop: 1.wen i get the toshiba page wen i turn on the laptop,i am having it smaller than the usual way and it doesnt log in to windows.instead it freezes on it.i need to switch off a couple of times till i get the toshiba page on my whole screen as a normal thing and then it logs in. 2.wen this happens and after loging in windows after having the toshiba page on the whole screen,as soon as i login to windows,i get an fatal error message code: 0x57 and an icon next to the clock that looks like the mouse pad but with a stop sign on it.at the same time i have everything working normally except my Fn doesnt work. 3.the cd rom or the dvd ram doesnt get detected all the time especially wen i move the laptop alot it also starts to freez almost every 30 second.. and much more problems bas these are the major things. i hope i will get ur help people and i will be thankful cz i tried formatting the laptop more than 4 times but nothing changed regarding the 3 problems..
Cutemah, Is your cd/dvd internal or usb? Have you tried to login using safemode? When the first Toshiba screen appears press the F8 key. Choose safe mode. Since you say the cd/dvd isn't being recognized that too may be the problem. Try removing the cd/dvd player and see if the machine starts. Is the error code only 0x57 or is there more? It is sounding more hardware related than software related. What program are you using to format the hard drive? Send me a little more information please. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
