Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

Very slow startup and keyboard stuck on "f"

My Toshiba Satellite M100 is very slow at starting up.  It can take 10 to 20 minutes.  It starts by showing the Toshiba window then goes dark for a very long time.  When it finally comes up the mouse pad works but anything that uses the keyboard starts printing "ffffffffff.....".  I've unpluged the keyboard and the "fffffffff..." continue.  Is this the Mainboard?

    The keyboard is not working at all.  It will not let me into the setup area of the computer.  I have removed the hard drive and I still can't get the keyboard to work.

Laptop goes on some few minutes after being shut down.


you cannot blame windows xp because according to me it is such OS that it removes many problems of windows 7 and vista.windows 7 and vista makes your pc much slow and many features dont work but windows xp is free from these errors.actually you hear the sound but nothing appears on the screen.this is because your cpu fan is running which takes somes time to stop.may be some problem of the hardware especially the mainboard.go to any repair shop and just get it checked.

Im having problems with my Toshiba Satellite L455DS5976 it wont start up. it will go to the normal toshiba screen when you turn it on but after that the screen goes blank and theres a white line what...


I had the same problem. Let it run that way for about 5-10 minutes, it should show a menu, choose START WINDOWS NORMALLY.
It will take some more time to boot, be patient. Once you start it, do the clean up, virus check and delete everything you don't it. That worked for me.
If this helps, please rate. Thank you

Toshiba Satelite M100 PC notebook wont start up windows XP


This sounds like a memory problem. Download and run memtest 86, it is a small iso file that you create a bootable cd from. Run this for at least one pass.

If the memory passes boot from your xp disk and choose R to get into the repair console. Once there type the following commands

fixboot
fixmbr

then try the install again. Hope this helps

Laptop satellite m100 will not start up suddenly


Try the following things and try to bring it up after each action:
1) Remove and reinstall your memory module(s)
2) Remove the CD drive, any PCMCIA cards, flash drives, all but 1 memory module and anything else that you might have connected to te system.
3) Remove the hard drive and try to bring the system up. You should get a message that sez something to the effect that the OS can't be found.
Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.
Thanks, and have a good one!
