    Toshiba Laptop Display & Boot Problems

    Locked

    by mob46x ·

    Toshiba P205D-S7438 w/updated BIOS 1.4 encountered a weird display/boot problem. Laptop boots and screen displays characters but reports \windows\system32\winload.exe (0xc000000e) error which I am not sure is related or a 2nd issue. Load Vista 32 disk to attempt repair, screen shows loading then screen remains black and only mouse pointer remains. Tried MiniPE Live Disk and after initial load screen also remains black. Don’t believe this is driver related as Live Disk does not depend on Vista drivers. Ran Eurosoft PC-Check 6.05 and it failed LCD TEST but ran other hardware diagnostics and all Video tests passed. Connecting external monitor delivers equal results. Please help… Thanks…

          OK then try using a Live Linux here and see what the results are

          You can get a Live Linux to download for free from here

          http://www.livecdlist.com/

          Or you can go to your Local Newsagent and buy a Linux Mag with a Live Linux as a Cover Disc. Either will work and completely divorce the Hardware from any driver issues that may arise connected with Windows. Personally I use Mandriva 2009 as it works with all of the hardware that I have ever thrown at it but any of the others should be OK to use.

          Also what tests did you run to check the RAM, CPU and so on. If any of those are faulty you can get all sorts of screwy errors and mangled Video is just one of them.
