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.

Try removing the laptop from the doc, pulling out the battery, hold the power button down for 10-20 seconds, and re-install the battery.

This should drain out the laptop and it should boot up properly without the dock.

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.

Try updating your system the manual way:

recovery menu 'safe mode'.



Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Perform 6, "system update."


If this doesn't work, when your system froze and you powered it down, you may have corrupted your Hard Drive (Hard Disk). You will need to replace it.



When you replace your hard drive, you will need to have the latest firmware on a

usb stick. Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Once prompted by your system you will need to insert the usb stick into the

PS3. Good luck..



You will need 2.5" Sata Hard Drive.

Have your Mac OS disc handy, start your computer, as it starts, press and hold the power button, this will cause the mac to shut off. Then push the button again, while it is starting push your os disc in the drive. The goal is to get the computer to load the OS disc so you can access the Disk Utility program from the file menu.
If you're having trouble getting past the fan still, restart while holding the commnad, option, p and r keys together. Continue to hold these down until you hear the start up chime. keep holding and let it do this twice. This is "zapping" thie PRAM ... Then start it again... These should help...

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.
