Satellite P10: clouds white and purple fading across the screen during startup

I had problems with my laptop PC-10 so I bought a new hard drive (Fujitsu 60 GB instead of 40 GB) standard and have it myself. I was working very well with it for a long time, until suddenly I have had the strangest problem that I've ever seen on a computer...

Sometimes, when you start the laptop, instead of the screen normal red "TOSHIBA" and the message to start Windows XP, the laptop displays simply little weird white and purple clouds fading across the screen, fading finally on a screen very dark, but not quite black.

I thought first it was a problem with the DVD player, like when he finally gave and started normally, the DVD drive has been disabled. However, I noticed in the BIOS, under "Advanced" the Infrared Port shows intermittently - it shows with the [Disabled] setting next to him, but will be then disappear from the list, then reappear again and then go again and so on.

Sometimes my computer will function normally, then completely shut (mouse and all) and will restart with the clouds!

I looked in the Windows Event Viewer for when the laptop has locked up and have seen anything to do with a problem with IRQS for the Infrared Port. I disabled the infrared port in Device Manager (I managed to activate in the BIOS by loading the standard BIOS settings) and rebooted, but it started upward with the clouds once again, so I have the feeling that the infrared port is the culprit - loose connection may be defective material because it is located close to the DVD player and HD player.

I was wondering if anyone has seen something like this before on any computer, and if they knew how to solve? It seems completely illogical that a defective IR port could change what is displayed on the screen on startup, unless of course there is something wrong with my HD boot sector?

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Hello

I've never seen like this problem before and I don't think that this issue has something to do with the HARD drive or the IrDA port.
As much as I know the IrDA port is not available on Satellite P10 - xxx

For me, this looks like a faulty screen or graphics card.
Have you tried to connect the external display? If this isn't the case, then try to do and check if it also appears on the external display.

I recommend also to recover the laptop with Toshiba Recovery CD and then check the functionality.
But if the malfunction appears so I would recommend contacting the Toshiba ASP for control from laptop

  • Satellite M60-162: vertical and transparent stripe on the screen

    Hello

    Satellite M60-162 appeared a transparent white vertical stripe on the screen of my laptop. The band is present at startup in the BIOS and in normal operation of the computer. How can I fix?

    No doubt with the replacement of the screen.

    A few years ago I had old Satellite M70 and it had a horizontal white line on the top of the screen. The line was also visible all the time, in the BIOS, when the home Toshiba screen showed and using OS.
    I replaced the LCD screen and everything was OK again.

    PS: Sorry for my language and we hope you understand

    Hello

    There are some common steps that should be made on the one hand;
    -test new graphics driver
    -updated the BIOS to the latest version
    -recover the laptop to factory settings

    If the lines are still visible, you must connect an external display.
    If the lines would be visible also on the external monitor, the graphics card can be affected.

    In this case, the part needs to be replaced.
    But this is a job for a technician in ASP.

  • Satellite P10: Controller USB and IEEE 1394 do not work after WXP re - install

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    I recently reinstalled WXP home on my satellite p10 computer laptop and then installed all drivers and utilities from the support CD that follows with Notepad.

    Everything works except for USB and Firewire.
    Very strange screen system shows me that I have bad driver for usb controller, but when I run the utility chipset problem remains. I even downloaded the drivers on the Toshiba support home page in the hope that it would be a different version and they would work, but nada... same problem persists.

    Someone knows how to solve this problem, or what is suitable driver for the controller USB on satellite p10 554 and where can I find this driver (without the entire chipset utility?)

    Thank you in advance for your help!
    David

    Hello

    the funny thing is that USB is IN the chipset. The problem is that you can extract some drivers you need, given that utilities chipset intel are a complete set.

    So, I suggest you go to the website of intel (www.intel.com) and then download the chipset utility. Don t forget to update your windows (Service pack, updates, bugfixes) because the operating system has sometimes problems with the hardware installed, then an update will solve this...

    I hope that you have little luck with the original software of the chipset intel.
    Give a few comments after completing the makings and let us know if it worked.

    Good bye

  • Satellite L830 - horizontal line across the screen

    All new Satellite L830 has a horizontal line across the screen.

    What can be the cause and how can be fixed?

    If the laptop is brand new it back as soon as possible and ask for replacement.
    On this virtual path, it is not easy to say what the problem is here, but it may be related to faulty display, especially if you can see from the first moments when the laptop is turned on.

    Don't try anything. Request a new one. If you can not new, contact the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help. They need to exchange the defective part.

    Francine simply connect to the internet periodically to receive updates and validate your membership.  If you have an annual membership, you can be disconnected until 99 days.  You can find more details in the help of Activation & deactivation.

  • Re: Equium M50-216 - lines across the screen

    Hi my Equium M50-216 has lines across the screen and low who go up and down the screen.
    There is no picture it s just white.

    If I plug it into an external monitor I get a fine display on the monitor is so the screen is defective or something else?
    I think that the inverter is ok because it of bright and not dull.

    See you soon

    I agree with Luke.

    If the image on the external monitor is ok then the graphics card should be ok.
    If an FL inverter would be defective then everything would be visible, but just a little more dark and as behind a fog

    In your case, it looks like a display problem

    I think you should ask a technician for replacement laptop

  • Cursor starts moving across the screen from left to right after the wake up the computer from standby or hibernation

    Original title: cursor goes wild

    My PC to 'wake up' sleep/hibernate, the cursor initially moving across the screen from left to right, in which window is open, destroy all the document is on the screen. I force Windows to close. How to solve this other than turning off standby/hibernation?

    Looks like the cursor of the mouse is very sensitive when the computer comes out of standby or hibernation.
    I suggest that you go in the mouse properties and lower the sensitivity and see if that helps.
    You also need to update any driver mouse if possible.

    Let us know if that helps.

    Similar thing TI also occurs when you are working on other programs on the mac, but not nearly as much.

    There are two options:

    • It seems that you are using Windows XP. Right-click on your desktop, click Properties, and then select the settings tab and click Advanced. There should be a tab named after that card manufacturer (Nvidia, ATI, etc.). This tab should have a button that opens a panel of controls specific to the manufacturer, which allows you to make adjustments to the video card, including the color/brightness.
    • Laptops usually have a touch of "function" (Fn), you can stick it together with other keys to adjust some of the properties of your laptop. These other keys are the regular with symbols keyboard or keys drawings next to them, usually in a different color. Looking for a symbol that resembles the brightness, like a Sun. When you find it, press and hold down the Fn key, then click on in the special key that you just found.
