    I was working in excel this morning... the computer had been plugged in all night, so the battery was fully charged, and was plugged in at the time of use, then all of a sudden the whole computer went dead... didn't even go through the usual shut down cycle. None of the indicator lights were on or anything as they usually would be when plugged in, and the battery wasn't even powering it. I tried unplugging the cord from the machine and removing and replacing the battery (same one) and now when I press the power button the battery indicator light flashes about 12 times, but nothing else happens. I plugged the cord bac into the machine and still nothing..?? huh? In the meantime I'll keep trying different things.. Thanx.

Hi

A fault I frequently come across is the power socket either breaking up, breaking out of the motherboard or more often now just an array of dry joints causing all sorts of odd problems. Build quality of laptops is rubbish these days - they have to cut costs to save money because of the lower overall price of laptops

Toshiba satellite a300 laptop display problem screen black, no display at all.


You laptop either needs a new Cable from the Motherboard to the Screen, a new power inverter, or a new screen. Most commonly, I have seen the video cable get smashed between the hinges/plastic case, and this causes the wires to break apart, leading to a black screen.

Here is the power inverter for your laptop: http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A300,PSAG0U-0CF035,Laptop,Inverters.aspx

Here is the video cable for your laptop: http://www.notebooksolutions.ca/zc/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=3392&zenid=7903c7a1a62c4c2cbfef6ea30865373c

Here is the LCD screen for your laptop: http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A300,PSAG0U-0CF035,Laptop,LCDs-Displays.aspx

If the display comes back, slightly, when you lift the display lid up and down, this would be a sign that your cable is bad. If you get no reaction from opening and closing the lid, you may have a bad inverter or screen. It is most commonly the inverter or the cable.

If you have a spare monitor, you could plug it into the VGA connector on your Laptop as a temporary solution. If after plugging the monitor in, you get no display, try pressing Fn + F5.

The monitor on my Toshiba P25-S5093 does not have any display of any kind; all black. I have display using external monitor.


Hi,
Does the display show anything before you enter windows? If yes, then press the key to transfer video back to your original screen once you enter windows. It should be the function key "Fn" + F5 - F8. looks for the icon which shows a monitor or says "CRT/LCD".
If it doesn't show anything before you enter windows I'm afraid your screen needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Return it to the store and let them fix or exchange. Sounds like it was a demo unit that they set a password on.

Toshiba satellite P205-S6287 the power button


Make sure the battery has a full charge, and that it's plugged into a wall socket, then try the power button. You will get the same symptoms as a bad power switch if your battery power is very low. Other than that, the battery could be bad, or going bad. If the problem is a faulty power switch, you will have to have it replaced.

Hi, I have Toshiba Satellite (Fusion Finish) A305-S6858 special edition which my uncle brought for me from the US lasy year. But the picture quality is genrally poor. How can I correct that?


Hello,

You have not installed Graphics/Video drivers on your laptop. Go to toshiba website and try downloading the drivers, or go to www.intel.com if your system is intel processor.

Toshiba Satellite A135 won't power up


Computer was outside (cold) out of the briefcase for a period and found that when it was brought inside it created some condensation. 30 minutes with a hair dryer on low dried everything out nicely. Computer started right up.
