Since your laptop is brand new , you may not be familure with it's function keys , FN

Sometimes the users accidentaly presses the FN and the F5 monitor function key at the same time.
which effectively turns the notebooks display off.

D in the image below is the FN function key
and the monitor function key could be F5 , it will have a little monitor symbol on it.

How can I replace the screen bezel clips on my toshiba satellite L305D-S5974 laptop?


The cheap way is do not replace them Get some clear silicone and sparingly put silicone in their place.
The right way is to replace the bezel which comes with the clips. I found one here for $32.95 plus shipping.

I have a toshiba satellite L305d-S5934 laptop and when i turn it on all i get is a black screen and sound from when its coming on but nothing shows on the screen how can i fix that


Look carefully at the screen, you should see some very faint images while its booting up. IF this is the case you need to replace the inverter.

Toshiba Satellite A105 Display


If you've replaced the LCD Panel already, then chances are good, the failing part may be the FLR inverter. It's a thin little chip about 3 or 4 inches in length that bridges the connection between the LCD and the motherboard. It's location varies from computer to computer though, so you may have to check with manufacturer documentation. They're not too terribly expensive to replace though, much cheaper than the LCD panel, anyways.

My Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5895 can't boot. I installed Fedora10


If you get a display or splash screen then you may just have a bad hard disk or memory dimm. If you get nothing then it is a hardware failure beyond a simple fix. Get on the phone with Toshiba and get it fixed before your warranty is up.
