Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook
When we power up our computer, we get the "in touch with tomorrow" Toshiba and then the screen goes blank, none of our icons show up - can someone tell me what to do to ge them back.
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.

Tips for a great answer:
Insert the Toshiba A60 recovery disc into the CD/DVD-ROM drive.
Power off the Toshiba (with the recovery disc still loaded inside the optical drive).
Release the "F12" key when the" In Touch with Tomorrow TOSHIBA" screen is displayed. This will open up the BIOS.
Change the boot order by using the arrow keys to select "CD/DVD ROM" icon in the menu. The Toshiba will now boot from the recovery disc and restore the system. Follow any additional on-screen instructions.

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.
