I have a Toshiba A105 laptop

when i boot it up it goes to the windows xp screen after that right before the starting up screen, it goes to a blank black screen with the mouse cursor. i can move the mouse cursor around, and at one point i let it sit there for 20 minutes to see if it would go past this point. it did not, so i turned it off and after several more tries it works but it doesnt.

Here are some easy things that can sometimes resolve this problem:
1) Sometimes there can be a static buildup on the mother board. Power off, remove the battery, remove the power cord and hold the power button in the on position for at least 30 seconds.
2) If that didn't work- Power down, remove the battery, remove the Hard Drive and memory modules and reinsert them. Try to power back up
If these things don't work, get back to me for some more ideas.

    OK. Here is a more extensive list of what might be wrong.



    Lid closing switch getting stuck or becoming intermittent.


    1) Try
    manually operating lid switch during failure.


    2) Look
    for gunk, syrup or foreign material in the area of the switch.


    3) Carefully
    feel for proper operation of switch.





    Bad hard drive


    1) Reseat
    HD.


    2) Swap
    HD, preferably with new good.





    Bad memory Your memory (RAM) may need to be removed, and
    then put back in (reseated). The video
    shares the system's memory, and will not function if there is a problem.


    1) Reseat
    module(s).


    2) Swap
    module, preferably with known good.





    Check for dim display


    1) Try
    turning up intensity.


    2) Try
    going to a prior restore point.


    3) Replace
    inverter.





    Corrupted HD


    Recovery


    1) If
    you're doing a recovery and it doesn't work, make sure you've not got any PCMCIA
    cards, flash cards, USB thumb drives or anything else like that plugged in
    which aren't part of the original system.


    Best of luck!

What can i do for my laptop, when i turn it on the XP splash screen displays, and then it just goes blank, no cursor, but it is still running


try booting into safe mode. hit the f8 key during bootup to get that option and see if safe mode works fine. If it does, then the problem is a bad or corrupt video driver. The display itself could be going bad, also, but that seems less likely if you can see the splash screen every time. If you cant boot into safe mode, you may have corrupt OS and need to do a repair install.

Laptop won't boot CD with HDD installed.


If it hangs with the new hard drive installed and doesn't without it hooked up then definitely the new hard drive is bad. Return it and get another one.

Blinking white dash during boot.


Something has messed with your MBR, master boot record, which is a small sector at the beginning of your first hard drive which tells the bios which partition to boot. You'll have to use your xp or vista's installation disc to repair the system.( Choose; repair this installation of windows when prompted )
While you are in the bios check under the boot section the order of your boot devices. If you have more than 1 HD check that the one containing your OS is first.

Display


If you've got exacttly the same each time you're start, then the VGA card has issue, or even the motherboard and CPU.

If not then try to chock the base of the screen with two fingers when starting, if nothing happen try to chock the middle of the keyboard and several spot around it. (it's a little bit brutal but the easiest way to find a bad contact or dead components)

Blank screen


Hi,
This might me cause of by two problems you need to check:
1 If you have genuine OS,and not expired.
2 your OS is corrupt, you need to repair (with OS disk) or reformat.

another secondary cause is due to malware or other virus infection which results in not displaying screen after bootup.

Try running in safe mode and run antivirus. or boot from OS disk to repair your windows.
