While your problem could be in several places, not the worst of which is the processor itself (this is normally one of few items that is socketed), try the following:
Immediately after attempting to turn it on, try the F1 key to see if you can enter the BIOS setup. If that doesn't work, try F5 and then F8 to see if you can get anyhting on the screen.
Another possibility is memory failure but you would have to have the right memory card (even an older smaller one) on hand.
In checking the PB website, I don't see your model offered so if it is more than three years old, the CMOS backup battery may be expired but normally as it approaches 'end-of-life' there will be other signs such as warnings about setting the system clock or similar.

Sounds like a Bad Hard Drive I would bring it to your local shop. Does anything come up on the screen at all when you turn it on besides the quick Dell or whatever brand it is?

Whenever I turn on my laptop the screen is blank with a white dash mark flashing in the top left corner of the screen. What do I do?


That is the signal that the BIOS no longer finds an operating system installed on the hdd. All you are left to do is to reinstall it. Use the recovery disk that came with it.

Nb 205 blank screen


Is your screen blank when you are trying to turn it on? Do the fans run and such but nothing shows up? If not then I don't know.. but if it is put you laptop in the freezer for an hour. Mine had that problem, but you won't be able to turn it off... ever again... because then it won't start up again. I would suggest to check this out as well if it is that problem. http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f108/toshiba-nb200-wont-boot-492391.html

Fan shuts off on computer startup, led lights are


The fans are USUALLY controlled by the processor chip reading its internal temp and running fans as needed. Under the varying load during boot, it is not uncommon to have fans starting and stopping..

If display issue: connect an external monitor to see if any change.

Could be spyware - boot in Safe Mode (F8) - download, install and run SpyBot (spybot.com).

Good luck.

Laptop boots up intermittently or screen freezes


basing on the information you have given here are the possible solutions:
remove any external device connected to your system (printer, external hard drive and others) if removing this does not work and still gets a blank screen with blinking cursor try to go to safe mode with networking. if successful try to download the driver for your video adapter.

when you try to start the computer , do get anything on the screen like a logo? when does the blank screen occurs, is it during the turning ON of the computer or during the windows xp logo appears on the screen?

a blank screen could be caused by the following: defective video adapter, corrupted video driver, defective memory, unknown device causing the issue like the hard drive, optical drive or other peripheral installed inside the computer.

try also using an external monitor
