So, i'm a bit new to this website, but it seems like it will work. Here i go...
I've been using this laptop for a while now. its a toshiba satellite L505D-S5965. it has a about 3gb in ram, 250gb in HDD. so, back in the beginning of august, it was acting up, seeming a bit unusal and being slow. i brushed it off like it was nothing. after a while, when i booted up my computer, it said this:
INTEL UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 082)

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM.
No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key
at that point, i looked around on the internet, and found a way to boot it up. i went into boot options, and booted my hard drive up. so everything was fine. for a few days. At that point, my computer did it again, and i realized this wasn't normal. but when i booted up my hard drive, the resolution was all wonked up. it was like, 720 x 576 while mine was 1366 x 768 normally. then it wouldn't let me go to my normal user. so i went to the admin profile. when i booted the admin profile up, it was a black screen and said this at the bottom right corner:
this copy of Windows is not genuine
it was just a black screen. i knew how to fix it, but the computer wasn't loading up the start menu. and now, a few weeks after all that has happened, it won't even let me boot it up anymore. i tell it to boot up the hard drive, but it goes right back to the error screen show above. some please help, i don't want to have my computer fixed for a lot of money.
