Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite P205-S7402 Notebook ?

Toshiba satellite keeps shutting down

\015 Hi, my toshiba satellite P205 starts up and goes to the page "installing 3 of 3 updates" 0% completed. It stays on that screen for a minute then comes up "shutting down" and then shuts down and restarts itself again straight away. I have pressed F8 and tried to start the computer in safe mode, also tried the "don't shut down windows automatically when it crashes" and also tried to start it back to the last time it booted up correctly. I have the computer plugged in, however the battery light is staying orange. The plug light lights up so it shows it is charging. I have also tried two different charges. Please help!! I'm freaking out cause i've just spent countless hours setting up MYOB, learning how to use it, and basically setting up a business from scratch and now i can't access it!!! I'm gonna say thank you in advance cause i'm really hoping its nothing serious and you can help me out!!\015

Answers :

My roomate in college faced a similar problem with his satellite. Unfortuneately it sounds you have very few easy fixes in this case. This is why we always tell people to back their data up (this is often available free online these days for small amounts of data). While there are ways for a sophisticated tech to fix these problems... It is not easy to do without being in front of it and ultimately a huge waste of time. The quickest solution (i know this sounds like alot but it is really quite easy and involves little more than 20 screws) is to remove the hard-drive, purchase an external sata/ide drive and copy the data you need to backup onto a friends computer. You can than easily format the drive with a windows dvd upon replacement in the computer. If no data on the drive is to be missed... You're in luck. Just format it.
