I have a Toshiba Laptop L40 Equilibrium.
Intel 128MB (I think) GFX
and other bits and bobs that I can't think of.
Anyways. Sometime ago I had Vista on there cos it came with it and for some reason after I typed in my password it would say "Welcome" for so long and then just go to a black screen with an arrow, Nothing more.
After a few tries I reinstalled Vista. I have lost the CD that came with the laptop but all I know it's in my room (hopefully) somewhere.
Vista doesn't want to install properly. It's goes as far and "Completing installation..." then just sits there looking pretty and evidently dose the same thing as before. Black screen with an arrow.
I've tried installing Windows XP. But I ether get (from booting the CD) "Make sure disk is powered on." Or If I install it via Vista (CMD) I get a BSOD saying most of the time 0x7B
I've also went back as far as Windows 98. I got it on once but it can't see my DVD drive once installed.
Linux (Uboobnoobtutu, Kuboobnoobtutu and Knoopix) works perfectly BUT for me to use the net I need to be wired cos for some reason it won't see my wireless but yet it pops up in a few places. Plus I would like to but a few games that Linux can't.
