Try this 1ST, System recovery options. Turn off your comp. Then while holding down the F8 turn it on again. The ADVANCED BOOT OPTIONS menu will be displayed. Use the arrow keys to select REPAIR YOUR COMPUTER and press ENTER. Follow the on screen instructions.
If that does'nt work try this; If you bought the comp from new you will have got the product recovery disc with it. You need to turn on the power and load the disc in. Then turn the power off. Turn it on again and when you see the IN TOUCH WITH TOMORROW TOSHIBA press the F12 key to display the boot menu. Use the up/down cursor key to select the CD-ROM/DVD drive in the display menu. Follow the on screen instructions This will restore the preinstalled software. The hard disk will be reformatted and all data will be lost. Basically its a factory restore and as such it will only have windows on it.

When connected to ac adaptor it will turn on and toshiba leading innovation appear, but after that no program will displayed, but when i disconnected to the ac adaptor the programs runs normally. the


This is strange.
I think your ac adapter power cord is bad. Get another one from ebay at: http://www.ebay.com

Just put in your computer's make and model, not the model of the battery in the ebay search.

For example: Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 AC Adapter

It might be your lcd screen's inverter, but it's strange. Anyway test the inverter by plugging in the ac adapter and when the screen goes blank try the steps below.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

How do I re boot a toshiba l505d-s5983. It starts up says toshiba the goes to a black screen with a little line in the corner? Nothing else Please help


If the screen on your TOSHIBA fails to come on or goes black, it can cause quite a panic, since the monitor is one of the most expensive components. Some A215 models, however, have a problem with the basic input/output system (BIOS) -- a chip on the motherboard that controls the computer hardware -- that causes the PC to freeze and the screen to go blank. To fix a black screen on the TOSHIBA Satellite, perform some basic troubleshooting steps in Windows Vista, then upgrade the BIOS if the steps fail to fix the problem.

1.Press any key on the keyboard to wake the computer. If the computer does not respond, hold down "Fn" and "F1" to check if the instant password feature is enabled. If a prompt appears, input the administrator's password and press "Enter."
2.Hold down "Fn" and tap the "F7" key to increase screen brightness if no prompt appears.
3.Hold down "Fn" and press "F5" to swap displays if the computer is hooked up to an external monitor. The TOSHIBA has several options to cycle through, so it might take several tries to find the correct setting.
4.Hold down the power button for 10 to 15 seconds to turn off the TOSHIBA. Remove the AC adapter from the power jack.
5.Close the lid and turn the TOSHIBA onto its face. Release the battery lock and slide the accompanying tab to eject the battery from its compartment.
6.Touch a bare metal surface to keep the battery safe from electrostatic discharge (ESD), then pull the battery out of its compartment.
7.Leave the battery out of its bay for 15 minutes. Return the battery to its compartment and lock it in place.
8.Turn the notebook over, open the lid, plug in the AC adapter and press the power button to turn on.
9.Log in to the computer as an administrator, open a browser and go to TOSHIBA Support. Select the A215-S7422 from the "Product Support" link.
10.Click "Downloads." Select your operating system, then click "BIOS." Click the BIOS link, then click "Download Now." Save the file to the desktop.
11Double-click the EXE file and follow the on-screen instructions to auto-update the BIOS. The computer will automatically restart when the update is complete.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

from the user's manual of toshiba PSL30L -00M00D (i'm using the exact same one):

Restoring the preinstalled software from the
Recovery HDD (Depends on the model you
purchased.)
About 2.5 GB of hard disk space is reserved for the recovery partition.
When re-setting up your hard disk, do not change, delete or add partitions
in a manner other than specified in the manual. Otherwise, space for
software may be destroyed.
In addition, if you use a third-party partitioning program to reconfigure
partitions on your hard disk, it may become impossible to re-setup your
computer.
1. Turn off your computer.
2. Hold down the 0 (zero) key on the keyboard and turn on your computer.
When “In Touch with Tomorrow TOSHIBA” appears, release the 0
(zero) key on the keyboard.
3. A menu appears. Follow the on-screen instructions.
