  • Keyboard, mouse and weird display after every other reboot!

    This is weird. I have a Toshiba Sat Pro laptop with Windows 7 installed, you can be working on it ok, then either shutdown/reboot and turn it back on and the screen resolution will be lower, and the keyboard and mouse dont work. I have to press the power button to power it off, power it back on and it's ok.

    I have formatted, reinstalled Windows 7 and the fault persists!!!

    If its under warranty, get Toshiba to handle it -- it appears to be something much deeper than the OS.

    If not under warranty try:
    a) BIOS reset to default
    b) BIOS upgrade

      Does the Toshiba come with any diagnostics??? My wife has a Toshiba at home and i can't remember lol.

      Are you using the OS recovery disks that Toshiba provided??? Can you get your hands on an evaluation copy and download the latest drivers and do a clean install??

        It worked fine with Windows XP Professional so I dont think its a hardware/bios issue.

        It has only happened since I installed Win 7 Retail, I just cant get my head around the fact that 'every other time' it works! It is getting annoying having to reboot it everytime to get it working! All windows updates been applied and its still the same!

          You didnt mention that bit before ALL relevant information helps....

          Where did you get your drivers from?
