    I was watching a movie on my television, with my laptop next to me when I suddently saw it go into hibernation mode... I tried pressing a bunch of buttons to stop it from going into hibernation, but it turned off. Now I can't get it to come on no matter what I do, the battery light blinks yellow on the front, but nothing else.. Ive tried it with and without the power cord, tried pulling the battery etc... HELP

Toshiba terra went into hibernation and will not boot


I find extensive use of the hibernation eventually corrupts window files until it will not start. The best option now is reload your operational system for a fresh install and disable this function, select power options and click hibernate "top right" and make sure box is unchecked, if not! uncheck and click apply and okay.

mcdevito75 here, You can try to presss the shift key, also try to put your lap top on, with either AC wall power or battery. If this doesn"t work bring the lap top to a local Radio Shack, or Staples for help.

How to turn on toshiba satellite M300 laptop from hibernating mode


hi shirleygty, is that automatic hibernation (the computer hibernates by itself) or manual hibernation (by pressing the hibernate button)? If either applies to your case you might need to update the BIOS information for your computer to fix the power management issues on it. You can get it here. Just run the file, click install & choose Install From Windows. Make sure you don't have any BIOS password or any external devices connected to the computer. When the update completed successfully, your computer will automatically restart, then try hibernating this time (manual or automatic). I do recommend setting the hibernation to 1min. at the control panel > power options > change when to turn off the display. When it hibernates, pressing any keys or the power button should wake up the computer.

Hope this helps.

Want turn on after it went into hibernation


your toshiba laptop adapter may go wrong, testing by insert it into an other toshiba laptop, if the toshiba laptop battery is not charged,the adapter is the issue, or if you have a multimeter, you can connect the two electroprobe with the input and output port of the adapter,if the pointer does not move, unfortunately,u should change a new adapter

Toshiba laptop won't wake up from stand by or hibernate


I had the same problem on my Toshiba Satellite U305, struggling with it for the past 4 months and having to use Shutdown each time I was done using it. Very frustrating! Toshiba worked with me several weeks, telling me to re-install Vista and all the fixes, which took a lot of work backing up etc and this did not fix the problem. Today they finaly told me to try entering this special command and it fixed my problem. Maybe it will fix yours too.

Create a shortcut on the desktop and to make the shortcut, right click on the desktop, choose Create Shortcut, enter CMD.EXE where it asks you to "Enter the location of the item". This will create an icon on the desktop that looks like a mini-command prompt. Then on the desktop, RIGHT click on the CMD.EXE shortcut/icon you have created and select "Run as administrator". This will open a command prompt window. Here in the black-box with white letter window, enter the command "powercfg -h on" (without the quotes). Reboot and see if the problem is resolved. This fixed my Toshiba Satellite that had this problem.
