Unfortunately, after my sucess with my laptop the other day, after about half an hour, it started being really slow again, then later on in the evening, it was pretty close to unusable.
Now, it's just that. The Toshiba 'splash screen' displays, followed by a cursor that blinks in the top left of the screen, then it just goes back to a black screen and eventually restarts itself. I've had it for 10 months, the TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor showed the Hard Drive status as 'good' when it was working, but now, it's absolutely useless.
My next step will be to try and install Windows 7 from a CD and do a clean install, if that doesn't work, then a friend has suggested resetting the CMOS, and several other hardware related things.
Do any of you have any other tips I could try?
Do you think doing a clean install from a disk would solve the problem?
I would be really grateful for any tips/advice you may have.
