Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook

2 Answers

Blank Screen Worked fine. Had a blue screen and rebooted. On reboot the screen displays nothing. You would not even think it was on. Sometimes it will stay on (when plugged in) and others it will not even begin to boot up regardless of lack of display. It seems like the screen is dead and the machine is struggling without a power lead. Even with the power supply it still displays nothing even if the power lights stay on and it appears to go through booting up (sound). It is a Toshiba l300 laptop.

    Nothing happening even if I press F8 as I have no display. Tried hooking up to external monitor but nothing there either. In fact it won't even turn on now without the power lead being in aswell, even then still no screen just a light and a noise on startup to say it is on?

    Hi I think I have the same problem - the computer went from a blue screen seemed to blow out and wont' come on since. Tried taking out battery, using just power source etc but nothing. Sounds like it is going to do something but nothing! Bought in November 2008 and haven't used that much so will take back to shop too I think but any other ideas please?

Remove the battery and try on AC power only, try on external monitor again and don't forget to use the switch keys ( hold Fn and press one of the F keys that has two tv icons ) also take the memory out and clean, if you have more than one memory module, put them in one at a time, rebooting the machine each time

hope this helps

keep us informed

regards

    the reason for the blue screen, is a hardware or software failure. this means that it may not be the motherboard and could be something else. If you say you only bought it two weeks ago, then of course, take it back and have the problem resolved by them


    Thanks for using Fixya!

Sounds like the mother board is failed..try one more thing..remove battery, run on power supply only, and see if that helps..otherwise, it's motherboard replacement time.

Black screen


Sounds like your screen is being switched to "Power Save" mode due to inactivity. This should switch back when the mouse is moved. This can take several seconds on a laptop. You can remove this "Power Save" by right clicking anywhere on blank desktop, select "Properties", "Screen Saver" and "Power Settings" then select "Always On" for the monitor.

Acer Aspire 5052 nothing on LCD


If the LCD display worked until the processor over heated and then went blank, and would work again once it cooled down, then yes I do. As you described above, the screen going blank and blank still on reboot ( no time to cool down ), then the next day the LCD displayed again ( cooled down over night ). Appears to be directly related to the over heating problem.
But if the display problem progressed to the point that the PC would boot up cold and the display was still blank, then I would think your graphics card will need repair.

Turn on Laptop gets to desktop with icons then screen goes blank


By "where I want to go", do you mean going on the internet? If all you are getting is a blank screen, then you have the "about:blank" virus. Go here, print out the instructions, and read them well. Then read them again and follow them closely. At one time I had it on a desktop system and the instructions worked just fine.

Blank screen


Quite possible that the machine is defaulting to external display only. Check your BIOS for this and try any function keys/switches that are available.

I installed nero 8 on my xp pc as a trial, i uninstalled the program via add/remove programs - the problem i have now is my pc wont shut down completely and wont reboot, when rebooting or shutting down it...


Hi PC;
try booting up in safe mode then shutdown from there, see if you still hang on the blank blue screen.

to go to safe mode, tap F8 when your pc is booting up.

get back to me for feedback. :)
