    My house-mate has recently (in the past 2 weeks) bought a Toshiba laptop (satellite A60 line) which has a curious booting issue.
    About 2/3 to 3/4 of the boot ups, on the first boot attempt she gets an error message indicating that the driver for the on-board ATI display adapter couldn't start and windows will restart. On this subsequent restart the systems boots normally.
    The laptop came preinstalled with XP home and was updated to service pack2 pretty much as soon as it was gotten home. Anybody any ideas if this could be the problem?

    Thanks for any ideas

    ATI has some new drivers for SP-2 . . you might try downloading and updating to see if it helps.

    ATI don't supply drivers for their mobile display chipsets.. at least that's the line on their website. The laptop is already running the latest display driver package available from Toshiba (6.14.10.6430), but thanks for the info on ATI having SP2 updates.. maybe Toshiba will push out a version for their laptops soon.
