Postby markj11 » Thu Sep 17, 2009 11:10 am

I pulled out my laptop last night to get some pictures off my camera and it wouldn't boot up. It just came on with a blue screen, I tried pushing a few of the "f" buttons but nothing happened.
Specs:

Processor: 300 MHz Intel Pentium II

Will it boot into safe mode? Press F8 during the boot-up sequence to bring up the safe mode option. Since you are running so close to the minimum spec requirements I'm guessing it is a hardware problem, but its just a pure guess.

I also have one of these bad boys that I used to pay Nintendo games on.
Toshiba 220CS Satellite laptop:
Discover an affordable Pentium 133MHz notebook computer with PCI architecture. Go for the power and speed you need to achieve high performance productivity in an economical, fully dependable notebook. Toshiba’s Satellite 220CS delivers it all with an Intel 133MHz Pentium processor and PCI architecture. Multimedia excitement and versatility is at the heart of the Satellite 220CS. Toshiba has thought of everything to make your presentations sing, with features such as a built-in sound system and a fast CD-ROM. You’ll value the expandability and flexibility of the slim SelectBay in which you can add an optional second battery, a second hard drive (swapable with 3.5 FDD). For even more flexibility, there’s an optional internal 33.6 /14.4 Kbps Data/Fax/Voice modem with V.80 for Video Conferencing.
