Hello,

I have a Toshiba Satellite A105 with Win XP SP3.  When I try to boot up with Built-In Lan Enabled in bios, it gives me the BSOD with the message... Plug and play detected a driver error.  The BSOD even shows up when I select safe mode.  When I disable Built-In LAN in the bios, the computer boots up fine, I just can't use the network port.  I need the network port to work.  
I've also reinstalled the original network LAN drivers and chipset with no avail.  I've also uninstalled the last two windows update that was installed a couple days prior to the computer crashing with no avail as well.  Please help with any suggestions.

Thanks!

you need to update your driver..

This has been happening a lot lately
right after the XP SP3 update..

right click on my computer..
click properties..
Click the hardware tab..
click device manager..
Find your device on the list..
right click on it, then select update driver...

It may be the hardware problem of your LAN card.
I suggest you try to buy a usb LAN card for testing.

Hello,

cdbeste: the device manager doesn't list the LAN device because it is disabled in the BIOS so I can't perform an update.

two people hk:  I will use a USB LAN card to test, but can I prove the built in LAN is a hardware problem or just conflicting drivers?

If there is conflicting drivers, you will see the device manager will appear "  !  " in front of the device.
To be honest some drivers will make blue screen but it can be solved by uninstall the driver.
And "normaly" if driver problem, the device will just not working, and it won't cause blue screen on startup.

You said that you tried to remove the driver and already reinstall / update with new driver, but if everytime when you enable the buildin Lan from BIOS and occour error message.
And I believed that it should be the Hardware problem.
So please use the new usb LAN adapter instead.

Thank you for your help.  I agree that it's a hardware issue.  Just a note to all interested in Toshiba Satellite, this problem has been brought up with the company and they deny anything is wrong and blame it on Microsoft.  I've seen many of the same complaints on other forums.  The laptop is exactly 14 months old and the warranty was only for 12 months so I am out of luck.  Thanks two_people_hk.
