Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A70 Notebook Notebook ?

How do I get my laptop to start?

\015 HOW do I get my laptop to work? I thought I got a good deal on a Toshiba Satellite A70 $100 (ratherr painting a 2400sq foot house). The screen was a bit cracked but other than that it was great. Wrong! My laptop didn't have any sound. Then My daughters friend upgraded Windows XP to Windows Vista. It was okay until the updates seemed to become a pain in the ....In no time I could only start up in safe mode. I then tried to install Windows Vista with Product key and a downloaded disk. Now when i try to start up it keeps flashing some message and keeps repeating it. if I try a different function it does the same.What do I do?\015\012\015\012\015\012\015

Answers :

It sounds as though Windows Vista was either a pirated copy, or the installation of it has corrupted the original XP install in some way. It also sounds as though your computer either has missing drivers (sound problem) or serious hardware issues. What does the message that comes up when you start your computer say?
