Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem "you only need to do the following" if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer Close all open programs
Click on Start, Run, and typeregedit and press Enter Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor Reboot your computer Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
Disconnect all PCI Cards and unplug power to all Drives then reboot your computer using the motherboard VGA port to see if the monitor will POST. If you still have a blank screen you most likely have a bad motherboard.
if the monitor led indicator is amber and and the hard drive (usually red) indicator on computer is blinking red. that means your computer is working but onboard video is dead. if under warranty, bring it back for replacement or repair.
I bought a Toshiba 215 on Jan. 11th. After about 2 weeks of having it, it started doing the same exact thing. I took it back on Feb. 8th to Best Buy. The Geek Squad had it for a few days and said my optical drive was bad and that I could replace it because it had been less than 30 days. I've had my laptop now for 4 days and the thing just shut off AGAIN!!!! I seriously think this is definately a Toshiba Laptop problem as I've been reading tonight and have found many people with this same problem!
Mine would blank just 2-3 seconds after power-on.
I pulled this monitor out of the garbage - someone threw it away. I found any old 12vdc power supply I had laying around (1 from an hp scaner 1250mA, another rated at 600mA) neither could supply the current (amps) required to run the backlights, therefore backlights shutdown, monitor goes blank--monitor stilled powered on, but black.
I tried all of the disassembly, re-solder various solder joints on the LCD Inverter board and removing the heat/magnetic shield from inside the back cover of the monitor. Nothing worked.
I bought a Segate 80gb external hard disk drive that came with a 12vdc power supply, looks like a typical laptop power supply, rated at 3A (3000mA). Plugged it to the monitor, it powered up, and it works flawlessly.
I have the same problem - the blank/black screen and blinking green power light. The speakers on the monitor work (I can hear the start-up sound that Windows makes), but the screen is blank.
We bought the monitor on Halloween Night 2003 at Best Buy and had zero problems to date...except for last night. The Best Buy gang told me this afternoon that it was an internal hardware issue. I called the manufacturer and the tech guy confirmed the problem by saying he was almost positive it was the internal "inverter board" - which means you have to send it in to get it fixed. I guess this is a fairly common problem with these monitors by the way he made it sound. So, that's a $70.00 deal (service, parts, labor, and shipping back to your house) - that is, if there are no other issues with the screen itself - then the cost goes up. So by the time you pay to send it to them and then pay them to fix the board - it looks like you're better off buying a new flat panel monitor. Yikes.
Anybody else with any suggestions - other than buy a new one?
