Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite 5105-S701 (PS511U-02WYJX) PC Notebook ?

Cant do anything, I turn it on, get windows screen, next says windows restarting

\015 It willl do it over and over again, and the graphics on the screen isnt correct. On start up I pressed the esc. button to go to set up (cmos) and I only got a message( with letters in the wrong place, could barely make out what it was really saying) press F1 to set default. \302\240 \302\240And I did.....no help. \302\240 \302\240Read from Toshibas website to press the Zero key on start up to bring up the toshiba recovery console.....didnt happen. \302\240 Did start up press F8, chose most recent that windows started.....nothing. \302\240 \302\240 then tried the recovery menu from same list.....nothing. \302\240 \302\240 \302\240tried safe mode.....nothing........when i say nothing i mean windows screen followed by windows is restarting. \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240Put in an XP disk pressed C on startup (from toshibas website) didnt recognise disk i guess because it did nothing. \302\240 \302\240 I put in a tools cd and it read it , opened it and i tried everything i \302\240could but nothing helped, and all the letters were messed up, could hardly read what it was saying, all garbled.......Does any of this sound like something you have experienced or know how to correct and fix??? I pulled out the hard drive, plugged it into an external usb drive 2.0 high speed (removed the one already in it,80 gigs, the toshiba is 60 gigs) then plugged it into my tower and i could access the hard drive. But only 3 files listed when i opened it, owner file, guest file and windows file with all the usual window file present as far as i could tell. \302\240 Come on you must have a theory? Something for me to try/ Maybe a couple of questions i didnt cover in this novel. Help me if you can. \302\240 My opinion...Toshiba sucks!!\015

Answers :

With the hard drive removed power up the system and enter the CMOS setup utility. Make sure that it is working properly. If not then get an external monitor and plug it into the VGA port on your laptop. (should be D-shaped with 15 holes for pins). Install the hard drive before doing this, and you may need to press a function key (usually labeled with fn in a little box [probably betweeen the ctrl key and the windows or alt key]) and one of the buttons that is in the F1-F12 row. It may have a picture of a monitor on it. Press these two buttons at the same time if your external monitor does not automatically show the screen. I know that this may not necessarily be a display problem, but if you are having problems with jumbled characters on the screen it is a good idea to use a monitor that will properly show your display. Next insert the XP install disk and do not press any keys. Let the computer boot off of the cd, only press a key if the computer tells you to in order to boot from the cd. If it successfully boots from the cd (and if the hard drive is installed), you may have to completely reinstall windows. It will ask if you want to delete the current partition. Do it. Make sure you have the Windows XP key for your computer, as it will ask for one to reinstall windows xp (unless it is a recovery disk). Make sure before reinstalling windows that you use your other comptuer to pull any data off the hard drive that you may need! Completely reinstall windows and see if this works. There are several different things this problem could actually be. It may be your graphics that is messed up, but I kinda doubt that that is the only problem, but it may be one problem on your machine. It could also be that your motherboard is messed up and needs to be replaced. The hard drive might be alright, or it might not.

I hope this helps, if not please let me know, and let me know what steps you have performed so that we can narrow it down. Also if you get any error messages please post those as well so that we can further help you discover the problem. I know its a real bummer to have these problems with your computer, and If I think of any other possible issues I will let you know.
