Question about Toshiba Portege 3480CT Notebook

1 Answer

Damaged Bios Hi, I tried to start up the pc yesterday and  I got a blue screen error, turned it off and back on again and got a this display "Damaged bios, contact serviceman (or was it repairman)...serviceman - input maintanance disk." This morning it wouldn't go past the Toshiba screen, and it gives annoying beeps everytime I push enter. I hope I won't have to replace any parts.

PC bleeps only not booting


Count the beeps. That is your error. Googling it is the easiest way. You don't mention make, model and OS so can't suggest anything.

Do you see an error message on the screen or, does it blue screen with an error message? When you boot up press F6 just as the PC drops out of BIOS mode. Select "Last Known Good Configuration". If that doesn't fix it, look up the error code on the blue screen with Google. Most blue screens are fixable. Some require a complete rebuild of your hard drive.

Installed wrong update bios for Toshiba Satellite L300D


You may have killed your laptop. BIOS have little to do with an OS like Windows, Linux, etc. The display issue is the culprit. Using another computer go to Toshiba website a get the current BIOS for your laptop. Are you able to access the BIOS at all? (press Del during bootup? to enter the Config screen (looks like DOS)

Is the display blank when you power on.?
First turn off notebook.Remove battery and power cable.Then hold power button down for 15 seconds.Reconnect battery and power cable.

Try to hit F10 key immediately when you power-on the notebook.
>If you are able to see bios(blue,grey,or white screen) information,then the issue is with windows or with drivers.
>If you are not able to see any screen.Then probably issue with graphics chip on motherboard.Contact Hp for repair options or authorize Hp store.

Thankyou.

Did you install Windows 7 or is it XP, which is a discontinued operating system?

Blue screens are less prevalent and even nonexistent on Windows 7 vs. Windows XP.

Perform the following actions to prepare the computer for troubleshooting a startup problem.

Acer Aspire 3050 blue screen


When you first power your computer on, you'll want to press F2 to get into the bios. If you're lucky, your bios will have the option to turn off the Automatic Restart on System Failure. It may be worded differently, but if you can turn that off, then you'll be able to see what your blue screen says.

Also, if you have your Windows XP cd (if that is your operating system), you'll want to boot up with the cd in your drive, to get to the XP Recovery Console. Run the command: chkdsk /r
(It takes about 30+mins to finish)
It will scan and repair any errors it may find on your hard drive.
