Toshibas have a HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE overheating problem. In your case, it sounds like the video card is overheating. Use compressed air in a can to blow dust out from inside your laptop. Then lift it up off your desk by propping it with something small, or buy a notebook cooler base. the problem should go away. I'm surprised you haven't experienced auto-shut-off yet.

white screen indicate the patch on the display possibly either display is physically or internally damaged....if its a software fault try reinstalling the video drivers...it may help else u can contact the manufacturer for service
In this case I would recommend you to try the following key combination :
CTRL + ALT + UP ARROW KEY
Press and hold the CTRL and ALT and from the other hand press the up arrow key
Please let me know if it was of help?
Hi there. The ribbon cable which runs behind the screen has either become loose or has become defective. If you still have warranty on the laptop send it in for repair, if you don't post back and i will tell you how to disassemble the screen to get to the ribbon cable. If the ribbon cable is faulty you can of course use an external monitor so you can still use the laptop.
hi, if ur screen turns white, it could be any problem starting from ur LCD to motherboard or as u said a virus. to assist u in a right way i need to know what exactly is happening between that short duration between pressing the button and white screen. most importantly is anything else comming up on the screen before the white screen.
Hi, my daughters had the same problem, this might be hard to explain, when you open your laptop way at the bottom of the screen there is a little prong that goes in to the key board to let the laptop know its opened you need to get a tooth pick and just poke it lightly and screen will turn on again! Just like when you open the refigerator door and the light comes on, in your case the button is sticking. hope this helps. GOD BLESS

If I understand you correctly you turned off your laptop and since then have not been about to boot up normally, occasionally getting a blue screen. Typically the blue screen also has some type of error message, can you tell us what that is?
You indicate that booting from the CD drive is not possible, is that because you don?t have a working drive? In any case this sounds like a problem with system files or possible a device driver and a CD drive is almost certainly going to be necessary. Let us know the answers to this questions and any other pertinent history relating to this issue and we?ll see if we can help.
