Have you held F8 while loading and selected the "restore last known good configuration"? If not I would try that. Safe mode will not always work. Do you have the repair disk?

Increasing lines...


if you think it is overheat, I could say yes since I don't see the stuff.. and the screen lines is indicating that your VGA is affected or maybe only the driver..you have done some simple observation, and I guess to test it you have to format your computer first, see..if the problem occur again, then you have to contact the support center for hardware assistance

Instantaneous shutdown of my Toshiba Satallite A105 Laptop


Hi Sam,

What operating system are you using ?

If you remember what time it last randomly shut down on you, use the system event viewer to see what errors were given just before it turned itself off. You can access the event viewer in Windows XP by clicking on the Start button, then click on Run, and in the box that pops up type in "eventvwr" and hit enter.

Click on system on the left hand side to view the log files of the system. Browse down until you find the time when your laptop turned off. Hopefully there is a series of errors there. They should be able to tell you something about why it is doing it.

Hope this helps, feel free to post some of the errors back here if you find any!

Another user asked the same question only he wanted a different os on each partition. http://www.fixya.com/support/t289525-change_operating_system

As far as start up time. You can add more Ram or you can go into the bios and see if some type of test or diagnostics are turned on that you can turn off.

If the computer in general is slow, then defrag would help speed up the hard drive.

The other is
start , run , cmd, enter
chkdsk /r

Do you wish to reboot then run chkdsk on nest start up,,,,, Hit yes.
