Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite 2250XCDS Notebook ?

Hi; I am a repair member on fixya (alpharome416). Since I have a guru rating and have posted almost a 100 answers for free. Will some one help me for free. I have a Toshiba Satellite 2250XCDS and a few months ago my Wife and I were watching a Bary Smith video on Youtube when a loud screech came from the hard drive and a blue screen of death came up. So I purchased a new hard drive and reloaded windows xp pro. into computer. I also had to reload My Belkin utility card to connect to the internet.

Hello

Ok, is this the same WIN XP disc you used to reload windows the previous times? If it is, the problem is not with the disc, or the data on the disc. Have a look and check if the disc is heavily scratched, if not, then your disc is fine. It should give you an error message if the disc was to damaged to install windows anyway.

The possible causes for this error is listed below.

\015\012
    \015\012
  • Hard disk drive is converted from FAT32 to NTFS and during the process \015\012corrupts the ntfs.sys file.
  • \015\012
  • Other software or maleware corrupts or deletes the ntfs.sys file.
  • \015\012
  • Overclocking / heat related issues.
  • \015\012
  • Corruption in the computer memory or memory in computer is bad.
  • \015\012
  • Other serious file corruption issue.
  • \015\012
  • Other hardware conflicting or issue.
If you have reloaded windows recently, file system damage is very unlikely. Also, if you have always used Xp pro, with the same devices in your computer, driver conflict is also very unlikely. Hence, i would suggest that you have a look at either the "bad ram module" or the "overheating" issue. As you said, this is a old unit, thus, it might be overheating due to dust particles on the processor fan.

Open up the laptop and have a look at the dust build up, if you can see no major dust build u, it is a faulty ram module.
