I've been having problems with my older, upgraded (Celeron to a P4) Toshiba Satellite 1135-51553 running Windows XP Pro. When I turn the computer on, it begins to start normally, displaying the TOSHIBA logo boot up screen, then as it begins to boot, I get the blue screen of death for a split second, then the system reboots itself and the process is repeated over and over. I can't even make it to the Windows login screen.

I've tried starting in all 3 variations of SAFE MODE, but it does the same thing, begins to read the drivers, load, BSOD, then restart. I was told specific adult websites had been visited and there was some sort of registry error message.

Can someone please steer me in the proper direction so I can get my laptop back!

Thanks in advance,

Daniel

Tap F8 as it boots and see if it will boot to Safe Mode.

With the BSOD and the fact that you can't get into Windows - I'd say that a system restore is called for from the Toshiba CD's. Then, ensure that you visit the Toshiba website for all the updated drivers for your system.

The BSOD is a hardware error - either caused by bad hardware or bad drivers (it's been my experience that the majority of these are of the bad/corrupted drivers type). The way to start fixing them is by updating the drivers. But, you've gotta be in Windows to do the updating! :thumbsup:

Hi

I'm am having many of the same problems with my 1 year old toshiba laptop. been in the shop a number of time . lats time for a month. here are some of the problems.
1. will not shut down after you use it for a while.
2. blue screen comes up some times
3. some times when you do a restart it goes into safe mode . every time you restart it it goes into safe mode. you have to shut it down and let it sit for about 15 min. and do a restart and it comes. back up
4. when problems arise a small computer with a red circle and a line through it comes up on the tool bar on the bottom.

called toshiba for help they said it was out of warrienty if i want there help i can pay for it. i have a warrienty with compusa they had it for a month replaced a fan could not find any other problems . They turn it on and leave it. the problems come when you use . i can turn it on and not use and not use it and i don't have any problems either. I don't know many people who buy a laptop to look at.

anyone have similar problems let me know

The "wait 15 minutes" indicates that you may have a problem with heat. Couple this with the fact that use causes it to crash and it's almost certainly a head issue.

Since the case was opened by service personnel, I'd assume that it was cleaned out. Have you tried any other 3rd party cooling solutions (like a cool mat)?

Ensure that the laptop is on a hard surface and that all the sides aren't obstructed.

Try this free utility to monitor your system temps (I've had limited success with it on my Toshiba): http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

Finally, you can also check your Event Viewer for the Blue Screen error messages. Here's a description of how to do it: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

Let us know what the error message says and we can look it up to see if there's anything else that we can do.
