Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

Computer Freezes During Startup (Urgent!)

\015 I have a Toshiba A105-S1013, and it runs on Windows XP. When I turn on the power with both the plug, or a charged battery, the screen with "Toshiba" pops up. The little blue loading bar keeps freezing about 4/5 of the way, and the laptop freezes. It will not start no matter what (I am using my brother's computer to type this). The only thing I can think of is yesterday, a few hours before this started to happen, I slammed on the keyboard a couple of times. It happened after I shut the computer, and when I opened it, this started. I am a total dunce with computers, so please help! A soulution that doesn't require money would be ideal. Thanks a ton!\015

Answers :

I have the same problem. It is intermittent so I believe a bad connecton somewhere. The first time I cleared this problem by removing and replacing the hard drive. It then worked. That does not always clear the problem so now I have to drop the computer lightly to jar it and try again. Eventually it starts and is ok if i dont jar it again. Of course if i move it, I probably have to start again. The hard drive connector is clean and the HD checks ok. Suspect where the HD connector meets with the motherboard but of course the intermittent could be anywhere. Very frustrating
Try firstly, on start up keep pressing F8 until a menu comes up.\015\012\015\012Look for the line that reads 'Start windows with last known good configuration', move cursor to it with the up or down keys as your mouse won't work; and press enter.\015\012\015\012Hopefully your pwill restart and run as normal.\015\012\015\012If not you may need your Windows cd.
