Windows 7: 1080p videos only play upon restart, not boot-up.

1080p videos only play upon restart, not boot-up.

Hi. I run 7 Home Premium, 64bit on a Toshiba Satellite L505. My chipset is from the Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series family. When I try to play 1080p or even 720p videos (doesn't matter if it's VLC or MPC, or whatever) my screen blacks for a second and then comes back with the 'display driver stopped responding and has recovered' message. Then the VLC window is green, and I can't play the video.

I've uninstalled and re-installed the Intel drivers from the Toshiba website many, many times, and nothing has worked to solve this problem. I already clean boot, so there aren't any conflicting programs that cause this. HOWEVER, I have noticed that if I start up my computer, then restart from the start menu, I am able to play the videos without a hitch. Then, if I completely shut down and turn it on again, the issue re-surfaces.

Please help me out with this. Are there any differences between boot/restart that cause this? I would appreciate any feedback.

Thank you in advance!

Take a look in Device Manager for problems? Any yellow exclaimation marks there?

Have you tried a system restore, or repair install?

Does your PC have a recovery partition?

Do you have a windows 7 installation disk?

No, Device Manager is fine. I've had this problem since I bought the computer, but I never found it a hindrance until now. Nonetheless, I have done a restore - no go. I do have recovery discs, but that is always such a pain. Is there no other way to solve this, you think?

Thanks for your response!

Have you ran a Repair Install

You say you had the problem since you purchased the computer. Did you buy it new? How old is it?

It was new, about 2 years ago. Have not done a repair, but will definitely do so when I have time.

If no other immediate solution comes to mind for you, then thank you for your time. I will run that repair and see how that pans out. In the meantime, I'll keep the thread open in case someone else with an answer drops by. This problem really is quite baffling.

Thanks again!
