So my friend was having issues, the laptop (Satelite L655-S5146) would shutdown randomly. Some days the laptop would stay on for hours, sometimes only 10 minutes. The laptop never overheated or got hot according to the toshiba health monitor and the fan was working properly. I was going through all the normal stuff with power settings, viruses, etc...
My current Toshiba laptop is getting rather long in the tooth, but I've decided to 'tough it out' until Kaveri finally hits the laptop (summer maybe?).
Anyways, my Toshiba laptop has dedicated/Toshiba graphics drivers, and Toshiba sucks at updating their drivers (essentially maybe one or two when the laptop is released, then they stop providing updates).
I just got a new Toshiba Satellite with Windows 8.1 and I want to take a look at the BIOS. The problem is, the start-up is quite quick.

I am having some odd problems with my Toshiba laptop. For the last two days, it has not loaded past the boot screen for hours, if at all. When I force the laptop off and switch it back on, it goes to the Preparing Automatic Repair process but will not complete the process and go to the desktop.
However, this only happens when the battery is plugged in.
Hey, *My current Toshiba laptop is getting a bit long in the tooth, so it's time to start looking for a replacement.Any suggestions? I know I'm not going to find one without UEFI, but one that could be easily disabled would be nice. I've owned Acer and Toshiba in the past, and they've given years of good service, but...
I have a new Toshiba laptop and Linux would not load. I called Toshiba and the tech said that the hardware of Toshiba prevents you from nuking Windows 8 and loading possibly anything else but specifically Linux. Has anyone else encountered this problem and what can be done.
