Blue Screen of Death Windows 2000 PRO

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsnt.setup (More info?)

Hey,

My Toshiba Satelite Pro 6000 is having some issues. It is currently
running Windows 2000 PRO and shortly after loading windows it crashes
to the blue screen of death. Then the computer has to sit for a long
while before the computer will even power up again. I have no idea
whats causeing the problem. Any ideas would help.

    This may help with the blue screen.

    Having to sit for a long time suggests something is overheating.

    I do not know Toshiba Satelite, but software usually cannot disable turning
    on of unpowered machine. So it seems to be hardware related problem. This
    "timeout" can be caused by electrical problems (bad capacitor for ex) or by
    temperature problems (check all coolers if they are running). Try to enter
    your BIOS setup program and look if there is hardware monitor page, if yes
    check values here.

    As power-on button is not real power switch, machine is turned on using
    logical circuits on motheboard, it is possible there is problem with
    stand-by power circuits. Some machines have real power switch on rear side
    of power source, try to use it or unplug power cord. If it is notebook
    remove battery and test it using only external power source, bad battery can
    cause notebook startup problems.

    Is your blue screen content the same each time? (especially error
    number/name and module name/memory location).

    If you enter BIOS setup or stop loading of Win2K in startup menu (press F8
    during first few seconds of loading screen) and wait a few minutes doing
    nothing - will computer hangs too?
    And if not and you turn it off, will you be able to power up it immediately
    or not?

    luck

    When the blue screen pops up there is no error message. I have never
    worked on Laptops before but i am now assuming its hardware related as
    i found yesterday. After the computer won't turn on the power light
    will come on but the computer doesn't activate. When left in this
    state the front and a portion of the rear of the laptop get reall hot.
    My next step is to take it apart i guess! And see what is heating up

    Thanks
    Ryan
