A friend of mine said this would be the place to get some answers that there was a bunch of smart people at this site. I can usually dig till I figure things out but this time it’s a no go.
I bought a Toshiba satellite P105-S6177 with no hard drive. Installed a 7200 Seagate 160 gb. Used the recovery disk and loaded Vista. It worked great for a day, then I uninstalled Microsoft office and re-booted here is what the boot screen says.
PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.1
Viedo BIOS shadowed

Press <F1> to resume, <F2> to Setup
If I resume it brings me to a screen to boot normal or let windows try to repair. If I repair sometimes it works and the system boots and some times it don’t. it might boot normal the next couple of times then it will hang up with the exact same thing.
I even boots sometimes if I boot normal sometimes. It appears to do better if there is no cd in the drive but that might just be my imagination.
Can anyone help? I am in over my head
By the way I upgraded the BIOS from Toshibas web site.
