Question about Toshiba Satellite A305-S6834 Notebook

1 Answer

Having Trouble Starting

The laptop froze after trying to load a game, so I manually shut it down by holding down the power button. The computer will now sometimes start in safe mode, and let me log in, but when I try to log into my user account when starting Windows normally, the computer freezes and wont go past the "Welcome'' screen. I have pressed F8 after restarting my computer, and done the system repair, but it hasnt helped. I cannot restore my computer because I dont have any prior saved dates to restore to. Do I need a Windows install disc to reboot my entire computer?

Help
Please

=Thanks=

Enter Safe Mode with Networking.
Update Video drivers.
Restart the system in normal mode and if still no go then you have to reinstall Vista from CD's.

Make sure the cooling fan for the laptop is not obstructed in any way or is not dirty. It's pretty common for a laptop to get plugged with dirt from normal use. Get a can of air and blow the machine out to remove dirt, lint or debris.

You could also have a defective battery, but try cleaning the machine first.

3. remove the battery
and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .

Hold down the power button until it shuts off. Give it a few seconds. That should square it away.

Toshiba Satellite: A135-S4427 / Won't shut down


Hi,
by pressing the power button in, the computer has gone into standby or hibernate mode.
Heres what you Do:- press and hold the power button for between 10 to 20 seconds.
that should bring it out of hibernation.
if that does,nt work. remove the main battery.
when you,ve resolved the problem, run a disk-scan via your windows operating system.

Power light is on but there is no display


Taking out the battery would do just as much harm as holding the power button down would. This could make you lose some memory or even corrupt important files. But if you have truly tried everything else (even holding the power button down until it shut off) and it still did not shut off then you would need to take the battery out to be able to try and fix it.
If possible, I would take it to a computer shop to avoid the possible corruption of your important files.
