    I'm assuming the issue is with your Toshiba Satellite A665-S6070 (PSAW3U-04301C) laptop/notebook - which appears to have come with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.


    Download MGADiag to your desktop.

    Double-click on MGADiag.exe to launch the program.

    Click "Continue".

    Ensure that the "Windows" tab is selected (it should be by default).

    Click the "Copy" button to copy the MGA Diagnostic Report to the Windows clipboard.

    Paste the MGA Diagnostic Report back here in your next reply.
