Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Satellite P302D-S8834 - yes, its older, but in great shape. It has never let me use sleep or hibernation mode - it always has issues. The fan comes on when you hit any key or power button and the screen is blank forcing you to do a cold boot. Any ideas on the problem?

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite Laptop 2405-S201 won't power up

One possibility would be to remove the battery and AC adapter and then just hold down the power button for about 5 seconds.

Put the battery and AC adapter back in and givr it a try.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: no boot, screen blank after hibernation

Sounds like a memory issue for sure! but I also know that when you put a laptop into hibernation mode it uses about 400MB space for special quick start up access. I think that you may want to try to repair your installation of Windows, you would havw to put your restore disk in and instead of re-installing the OS just repair it...

SOURCE: Labtop Screen Remains Blank

connect to external monitor to rule out bad video card. (remember most laptops have to toggle between internal and external display by using the <FN>+ <F?> key, mine is FN F5.)

If the external works then the problem is

  1. Inverter board or
  2. TAB welds at LCD or
  3. CCFL Cold Cathode Florescent Lamps (backlights)

SOURCE: No boot No fan noise no display but lights come on

Somethings has happened to your motherboard, CPU and/or hard drive somewhere along the line if it wont power up when you hit the power button and this would explain the reason for no activity. When a motherboard fails, no activity will happen at all, so Im putting my money on your motherboard being defect so take it in for a service and you may have to buy a new laptop since repairs can be costly.

If you go to control panel + power settings you can configure and adjust how your power gets distributed when in sleep mode etc. This may not totally fix your issue as it will alleviate the loss of power. I would first see what type of life the battery is supposed to have and if you are not satisfied your best bet is to replace the battery with a longer life. Goof luck and please let me know if you need any assistance with that.

Toshiba Satellite L300D. Laptop will come out of sleep or hibernate mode without prompting and display the login box.


If the login box is displayed when it wakes up, that is usual. It uses a sensor to detect when the lid id open and will come out of standby when it thinks the lid is open.
Re configure the power off settings to avoid standby or sleep mode when the lid is closed.

My Toshiba Satellite L305-S5875 always crashes on a cold boot.


Part of the problem is the hybernate function it causes windows to become unstable and eventually will corrupt the windows files making vista unusuable. I strongly suggest the hybernate mode be disabled and you make a backup recovery disc just in case windows crashes. By following what I have recommended and shut down windows when not in use will make a big difference in stability.

Toshiba satellite laptop won't wake up from hibernation even after holding power botton down?!


If pressing down and holding the restart/start button doesn't wake it up you might try Control + ALT + DELETE keys (together) - that will reboot it though. And if that won't work then you might have to pull the battery to reset it.

It seems that some laptops have a problem with vista and sleep mode, in particular, and sometimes hibernate too. You can try going under POWER OPTIONS under Control Panel and setting everything back to default, saving it, then resetting it again. Also it's best to avoid using sleep mode if possible to avoid problems.

If the problem developed after a recent install or updating you may need to go to an older store point to fix the problem. Personally, I just avoid using these settings as much as possible and use regular shut down and a screen saver for times when I need to step away from laptop for short periods of time.

If your computer is doing this, I would have to guess that it's going into sleep or hibernate mode.
To disable sleep or hibernate mode, go to your control panel, then mobility settings and just disable it within that area.

Not wake from sleep or hibenate


Usually, to wake from sleep pr hibernate, you just need to press the "Power" button of your laptop. It will not turn it off or restart the laptop if it is in the "sleep" or hibernate mode. Pressing any key usually wake it up. The default way is to press the power button as if turning it ON for the first time.

You have to disable the hibernation mode. Sounds like this is the problem. Go to Start - Control Panel - Performance and Maintenance - Power Options - click on Hibernate tab and uncheck where it says Enable Hibernation. This should fix the problem. Cheers

Put my toshiba laptop into sleep mode closed the lid, reopened it within seconds, and now the laptop will not come back on


Reboot the laptop, go to control panel > power options > go through the settings, especially what does the computer do when lid is closed and change the setting to "do nothing", turn off hibernation if it is on. Change other settings to now allow the computer to go to sleep, just let it run until you decide to turn it all the way off. Sleep mode and Hibernation cause more problems than do good.

Curious - What is the moon shaped key all about


this button puts the computer into sleep mode.

FROM WIKIPEDIA-

Sleep mode can go by many different names, including Stand By (Microsoft Windows 95-Server 2003), Sleep (Mac OS 8)-(Mac OS X) / (Windows Vista,Windows Server 2008), and Suspend (Linux). When placed in this Sleep mode, aside from the RAM which is required to restore the machine's state, the computer attempts to cut power to all unneeded parts of the machine. Because of the large power savings, most laptops automatically enter this mode when the computer is running on batteries and the lid is closed.
Though Sleep and Hibernate are generally thought as two separate functions, modern Macintoshes, Windows Vista (termed Hybrid Sleep), and some specially configured Linux machines also feature a variation of Sleep mode that incorporates the strengths of Hibernate. The RAM is copied to the hard drive before sleep mode is initiated, preserving the RAM contents in the event of a power loss.
ACPI is the current standard for power management, superseding APM and providing the backbone for sleep and hibernation on modern computers. Sleep mode corresponds to ACPI mode S3. When a non-ACPI device is plugged in, Windows will sometimes disable stand-by functionality for the whole operating system. Without ACPI functionality, as seen on older hardware, sleep mode is usually restricted to turning off the monitor and spinning down the hard drive.
