Firstly unplug everything from the laptop (even the power) and remove the battery, hold the power button down for 10secs then plug the power back in only, see what happens...

If nothings changed...
Try and plug a normal monitor into the VGA port and turn the laptop on;
you will get the toshiba POST screen if the graphics card still works (then the actual screen is at fault)
if you dont then the graphics card is at fault..


[Just a thought... does the laptop bleep when you first turn it on?]

Let me know how you get on...

I have a toshiba satellite A205-S500 I am looking for a replacement black keyboard and I believe the LCD Screen needs to be replaced where can I buy these two parts and can I install them myself.


You are looking at about $200 for keyboard and LCD, and you could buy them from here http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A205,PSAE3U-07Y023,Laptop,LCDs-Displays.aspx
As for installing them yourself, it's pretty easy if you're handy with a screwdriver. Have a look here for a video guide:

When I try to boot my laptop Toshiba Satellite M45 the screen just shows Toshiba for a few seconds and then it goes black.


If it does it when AC power is connected then you need to have it serviced.
If it only does it when on battery replace the battery.

Good luck!

Went black and won't turn back on.


if the ac adapter is good
thats the first thing you shoudl be sure of
next the jack in back of the laptop may need replacement
they cost 5 to 10 dollars on ebay, if you can move the pin in the jack or is loose , then its the dc jack

Screen as lines coming down screen of my toshiba satellite laptop


Boot the computer in BIOS and if you sill have lines than the LCD is leaking.

To boot to BIOS tap "F2" OR "F10", multiple times as soon as you hit the power button to turn on the computer/

I cant get in to my screensaver settings, when i right click my desktop click on personalize then try to click on screensaver nothing happens and then everything sort of freezes i have a toshiba u405-s2820


Hello,

This is only for XP and 2000. Also, try to change your desktop background before you use this information. The option to change the background is on the same screen as the screensaver settings. The tab says background instead of screensaver.

Download cleandesktop (http://thespykiller.co.uk/downloads/cleandesktop.exe)and save to your desktop. (right click save as)
Double-click on the cleandesktop.exe it will automatically extract to c:\desktopclean
Then it will automatically run the cleandesktop.vbs script.
It will then kill explorer. You will temporarily lose your taskbar and desktop .
It will then repair the registry entries returning your normal desktop and context menu functions.
It will then restart explorer. Your desktop will be shown again once you have performed the cleanup

Each of the other users on the system needs to be signed in to clean up their desktop and regain the right click.
Another vbs is included to do this. It is named "other profiles regfix.vbs".
Have each user sign in and run other profiles regfix.vbs.
Go to start > run and type: c:\desktopclean press enter double click on other profiles regfix.vbs
Explorer will be ended and that user's active desktop registry entries will be repaired.
Explorer will be restarted. To restore the desktop to whatever picture you normally have, right-click on a blank part of your desktop, select properties > desktop tab & select your preferred picture.
Press apply & then ok to exit and then press f5. (to refresh) you will need to do this step for every user account.

Thanks

When I turn on the Toshiba Satellite A215-S7447 laptop, the monitor part of it doesn't turn on with the rest of the system.


Plug in an external monitor. use the <FN><F5> keys to toggle between the internal lcd and the external monitor. If the display external works and the lcd doesn't, most likely a bad inverter board.

My toshiba m105 it wasn't the inverter, it was the lcd itself, the TAB welds were no good but the lcd still worked it just had a 3" vertical blacked out area on the lcd.
