20 Most Recent Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422 Notebook Questions & Answers


The most common problem with this is an easy fix. You should try updated your video card drivers. If you can't find them on the manufacturers website, the easier route is to download slim drivers. It should get it for you with no problem. Although, after you may want to turn off the service starting up at boot. If this doesn't help you could also have a virus. I've read that the FBI virus can cause lines to come up. You should try running windows defender offline on your PC. You'll need an empty USB stick or blank CD/DVD. If there are not the issue. Then it could be hardware. The video card could be going out. It could be that your motherboard may be having issues, or even your screen.

Getting this error during the set up process indicates a hard drive failure, usually a bad sector or the wrong system is trying to load; GPT instead of MBR and a partition cannot be created. Generally it will load and then be unable to read from the bad sector or just will not boot, creating a problem, system glitch, or blue screen error. You will have to replace the hard drive.

Try removing the battery. It might be damaged and overloading the laptop. Also, before you replug the AC cord, press power for at least 5 seconds.

Viruses can make this kind of problems, but also overheating. Boot to Safe mode with networking, by pressing F8 after power on, and download Speed Fan (AMD CPU) or Core Temp (Intel CPU). Start some movie and see the maximum temperature, it should not pass 70 degrees Celsius.

Hello, yes you are right for that USB replacement you need to replace the motherboard, as USB port is Onboard.

Cheaper solution... there are adapters available that can convert your serial port to USB. Then purchase a 4 (or more) USB hub, to plug into that.

And that's the only issue your Laptop has? No messages that pop up or displayed as you try and run them? Vista OS, right? At this stage all I can think of another program is stopping them like Windows Defender? is that on your system and running/enabled if so look into it to see if it's blocking restricting applications running.

problem with the battery, try another battery. this will fix it.

Possible that PC is hanging up as there is fault on the OS (operating system) or a virus in the OS. Also it is possible that the backup battery (CMOS) has low voltage or the memory card is a suspect. In this case you need to check the voltage and also try and swap a memory card. Sometimes the memory card connections can be faulty either on the card or on the slot. Cleaning the slot and card must be done before you try a replacement. If the PC boots and fails then the hard disc can have bad sectors or is corrupt. However if there is no result the motherboard also can be suspected. In this case you might need the help of proper tools and equipment support to do a chip level service
