When i turn on my notebook it is just black..the screen is blank i cant see anything on my desktop

How I tackle laptop screen stay blank after turning on the power switch?
1. Make sure the power is off.
2. Make sure the lap top is not plugged in (charging cord is not plugged in).
3. Remove the battery from the bottom.
4. Hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds.
5. Plug in the power cord.
6. Turn it on as usual.
If the above instructions doesn't work, try removing and reseating the RAM sticks in the Notebook by following the guides available from page number in the Manual of the Notebook. Try starting the Notebook with one RAM module inserted and do try by inserting one RAM stick in another.
BTW, If not, you can try to buy a Laptop LCD Screen Replacement ( one of my friend got it for replacement in Papatek)

Black screen if electrical cord is plugged into my Toshiba

Power options is most likely where you need to look to fix this. Go to the Control Panel and search for Power Options then change plan settings.

On a laptop, you will see that there are different options when you are plugged in versus running on battery.

Check your settings for blanking the screen when you are plugged in, that's probably where you will find the problem, set it for at least an hour before it blanks the screen.

Blank screen. Remains blank

Power down, remove the battery, remove the power plug. Hold down the power button for at least 30 seconds. Remove and reinstall the memory module(s). Re install the power plug and try to power back up and see if it works. If it does, reinstall the battery ad you're done. If not, get back to me for some more ideas and further diagnosis.
Thanks and have a good day!
