Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite U205-S5002 Notebook ?

Driver Malfunction, completely baffled

\015 This laptop has been pretty well maintained in the two years that I have had it. About a week ago I cut it on and I noticed that the menu bar had changed, it then said biometric reader not connected, audio device not supported. I tried the wireless and it did not work, I tried to use the USB ports and they did not work, even some of the windows services do not seem to work either.\015\012\015\012I then ran a full virus scan, spyware, and cleaned out temporary files. All was well here. I found a system diagnostic tool and it showed that the audio driver was not detected.\015\012\015\012Today I was told to try and create a system recovery disc, that program comes up with an error message when I try to use it. So as of now I have no way to restore the harddrive and restart from scratch.\015\012\015\012Where do I need to start to fix this, I dont think it is a hardware issue but I cannot rule that out. \015\012\015\012I need this computer for school so any help is greatly appreciated.\015\012\015\012Thank you and have a happy new year.\015

Answers :

Are you running XP? Have you tried the built in XP system restore? If not try this:
\015\012
\015\012Start->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore
\015\012
\015\012Pick a date before the problems began to occur and give it a try. If it does not work I would try running System Restore in Safe Mode next. Do boot into Safe Mode reboot and beginning F8 every second or so. A menu will come up giving you the opportunity to boot into Safe Mode.
\015\012
\015\012Assuming neither of these work, I would next try booting into Safe Mode and doing the following:
\015\012
\015\012Start->Run
\015\012
\015\012type chkdsk /f in the box and click OK.
\015\012
\015\012Did the laptop come with Installation CD's? If so, worst case you can just start an entirely new installation. You'll want to back up all your documents to an external hard drive before you do this as everything would be lost.
\015\012
\015\012There may be no easy solution to your problem. That's why lots of times people are hesitant to make suggestions because then they potentially get a bad rating. I don't get paid for these suggestions. It's a strange hobby I know, but I like trying to help. If any of this information is helpful I hope you'll rate this positively. If nothing I've suggested helps then please ask for more help before you give a bad rating. Thanks, and good luck.
When restart the computer press the F8 key on the first 5 seconds a black page will apear with some options choose the one say last good know config and the restart the computer that will return the settings of your computer to the time when it was working fine
