Satellite Pro M50: ATI Radeon Mobility 200 - Blue Screen error

October 11Hits:0
Advertisement
Hi,
My girlfriend has a Satellite Pro M50, she bought it around 3 weeks ago, recently it has begun freezing while in general use (playing music, browsing web over wifi etc) and then it blue screens. The blue screen only stays on for a fraction of a second before disappearing and restarting the machine.
Once it has booted up again i send the error report to Microsoft and this lets me know that it may have been the ATI drivers, i went to the ati site to look for drivers but for some reason there were none for the mobility 200m, i used the drivers from the toshiba site instead and this seemed to fix the problem for a short while, but it is now happening again, is this a software or hardware problem and what should i do?
any ideas anyone (machine specs below)?
Toshiba Satellite Pro M50
Intel Celeron 1.5ghz
512mb RAM
40gb HDD
ATI Mobility Radeon 200m
Win XP Home Ed
cheers
Rich

When you boot up the computer, after the toshiba logo goes off hit F8 until it gives you the advanced boot up options. Boot up with the Computer does not restart after a fatal error. This will freeze the Blue screen when it shows up. Once it does copy the 0x00000 code and post it here. If you have a good stick of ram try that and see if it works. If not it could be the video memory.
Or it could just be that the GPU is overheating because it is defective and needs to be replaced. Try another ram, and post the error code. If new ram has same issue, reinstall the OS and see if that fixes it. If not, could be a defective video card or even a processor. At which point I advise taking it to your ASP and have them test it to find the true cause.
Hope this helps narrow it down.
