Hello,
I have trouble with my toshiba laptop. When I turn on my toshiba laptop everything seems to be running normal for just a few minutes and then the display turns into one plain color. I have to push and hold down the power button just to restart it. When I run it in safe mode. It works just fine. It would run normally for hours. Even overnight. I hope someone could tell me what the problem with my lapotop and how to solve it. Thanks!

When your running in safe mode Windows is using its basic VGA video driver. Hence, I suspect you need need to find a video driver that works with your hardware. Newer is not BETTER. You might need to download and install an older version. Also the manufacturer's web site is probably a better place to find a workable driver version. I never let Windows automatically update video drivers for this reason.

Good Luck
