Re: rebooting a toshiba equium laptop
First thing to do here since the computer has a lot of virus is to clean the computer if you can still oig in to the computer better install some good anti virus and anti malware software like Avast and Malwarebytes that can clean the computer systme for virus and malware and that should fix the problem. But if you cannot log in to teh computer the next thing you can do here is to format the computer so it will be clean and reinstall everything back...

Try TOSHIBA as the password. It works on most of their laptops. I'm not sure about desktops but it's worth a shot! :) Also try holding ESC while it's booting before the password prompt comes up. That sometimes works too. Good luck!
First, try windows diagnostic. Depress F8 button before the pc boots to windows and select Restore to best known...If nothing happens, try booting to Safe Mode. If it works ok in that mode then you need to reformat your drive. Make sure you use the Restore cd otherwise some or all the features like sound, VGA, etc will not work. When the Restore disk is through, it will prompt for the OS. Simply insert it into the drive's tray and follow the instruction on the screen. Good luck
Hi...I have had the same problem with my A210 laptop as well over the last year.The problem is sporadic and it would just happen out of the blue.My daughter has the same laptop and the same problem.The screen would go blank ,but you could tell the computer was still functioning somewhat in the background.The only way to fix it was to reboot and if you were working on anything it was lost.I also recently had another similar problem.I had the laptop set to go to sleep when i shut the lid.This worked great for a year or so.When i opened the lid the screen would come back on and i could continue using the computer where i left off.But recently when i opened the lid the screen would come back on for a few seconds then go blank ,just like it did as described in the first problem above.Not sure why as i had not changed any settings on my computer.It happened every time i closed the lid then opened it.A pain as had to reboot to get it back.Here is the fix my friend discovered.Click on the ATI icon in the taskbar and open up the CATALYST CONTROL CENTER.Make sure the advanced view is selected.Now choose "display options".Put a dot in "Detect whenever catalyst control center is opened",and leave the other 2 spots unchecked.( I had a dot in these 2 places ). Now apply the changes and close it out. I have had no problems since doing this with the screen going blank.Not sure why this worked ,other then the computer was getting confused along the way and shut off the screen.Just be aware that if you hook your laptop to a TV you will have to revisit the ATI setting and change them back.....Hope this helps...Dan
