Toshiba satellite display problem

i got toshiba satellite m300 psmd4c-02p01c for about a month now...
my problem is that when starting it up there are is no display after the "toshiba" display...everything's lighted up from keyboard to screen...but BLANK. it started yesterday, when my dad is using it up and it died down because of low battery. after plugging it and starting it up, the problem started...push the button, keyboard lights up, screen lights up, "toshiba" display, and then matter how long i wait up for it.

what i noticed is that:
1) it restarts when control+alt+delete is goes off, then on, then toshiba, then blank...
2) the power button, when pushed, it immediately turns on and off...
3) i tried putting in the recovery cd, but zilch...
4) compared to an hp, toshiba heats up easily
5) i tried removing the batt pack but still nothing
6) brightness can be adjusted

i'm not sure if it's an hd problem or maybe my dad pushed something like a hot key which got it to this problem

pls help me out of this...thanks...

ur computer is stuck in resume mode and since there are not all the files on harddrive when it went off so what you need to do is this as soon as it powers on at Toshiba screen keep on taping F8 and then select delete restoration data after that it should boot up fine.

Hi I bought a Toshiba Satellite M300 PSMD4L-01W004 in 2008 but only started using it regularly in 2009. The screen turns black like the light goes out when I open the display at more than a right angle...

the connector is the most obvious place to start,During the 90's this really was the achillies heel for most laptop manufacturer,this was probably in the top 5 complaint at repair shacks.
technology has made things somewhat better but some models still have faults in this area,that and the fact when dropped this the hinge area come under considerable stress/fractures

Toshiba Satellite M300 screen problem

Hi, I can't guaranty this will help the problem, but for a quick try I say its worth it. On the Desktop, right click to open Personalize, select Display Settings; by adjusting the resolution it helps with the "Flicker effect" aswell, by selecting different settings, you can "view" the best Monitor Display. "If the solution helped, rating it is appreciated, thanks."
