Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A15-S129 Notebook ?

Toshiba satellite a15-s129

\015 I just bought a toshiba satellite a15-s129 at a garage sale, when I turn it on it boots up to windows xp. Then when I click on one of my icons it tries to open the program but never does. Even when I click on start the same thing. Nothing ever happens. Can somebody please tell me how to repair this?\015

Answers :

Hi I am Vortash .. the best thing to try first would be starting it up in safe mode , Turn on and keep pressing f8 this should trigger the safe mode screen and choose start in safe mode only no drivers no network
\015\012if it works ok like that , then shut down and start normally turn on and allow to start normally then click start accessories system tools and then restore ... hopefully that will work .. if not see if it will restore in safe mode .. if they both fail you probably have a faulty hard drive or the interface where the computer is connected to the hard drive .. to check use an external hard drive ( usb) with an operating system on and the bios in the computer set to boot from removable in one of the boot options .... if it does boot up like that check the pins on the hard drive are not damaged or dirty ( you don't know how long it was in that garage lol ) if the interface connection is faulty there is not a lot you can do about that as it takes specialist equipment to repair multi layered surface mounted boards .. hope this helps Vortash
Reformat and Reinstall XP, this would
\015\012clear whatever data is on the laptop. Or do an XP repair.
\015\012When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
\015\012If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
\015\012Thanks, Joe
