View Full Version : Sat Pro A60: Graphics Card problem on Boot up

07.06.2005, 18:51
Just got a Satellite Pro A60.
Everytime it boots up it crashes and then restarts.It then works perfectly OK, even if you restart it.But then if you start it after it being off for a couple of hours it crashes on boot up again?
Windows Error Report blames the ATI Radeon 7000 graphics driver (See report below) but I have updated the graphics driver and still get the same problem.

This is the error report:

Hi Marsey

Can you please tell me if this problem occur when you use the driver given by Toshiba or ATI? I can not imagine that this problem comes alone. Can you tell us since when you have this problem?

Check also if there is a BIOS update for your unit.

I have had the computer from New and it's two weeks old.
The graphics card is an ATI fitted by Toshiba.

Hi Barry,

I would be inclined to return your notebook to an authorised Toshiba Service Agent. The OEM software should not require any updated drivers at this early stage in its life and the unit will be well within its warranty period.

Details of your nearest Service agent can be found from the Toshiba website.

Hi Mersey

Before you contact service partner or your local dealer try to reinstall OS using Recovery CD. In this case it should work properly. If there is the same problem after reinstallation procedure contact the service partner in your country and let them check the unit.

Thanks Everyone!

As per Horwath's idea,I have just used the recovery disc,and fingers crossed it will do the trick,if not it will have to go back.

Thanks Again
