If you spilled water all over your laptop and its loading but not displaying you have damaged at least the inverter board and probably more. If it is booting up and you think it is ok except no display, you can verify this by attaching an external monitor and see how if at all the laptop is performing

Well, if it was faulty it would detect it on POST (power-on self-test)
and beep. So, you could start by making sure that your display monitor is working ok by plugging another system or laptop into it, or plugging a known good monitor into your barebones system.
It's only a start, I know, but you have to know that the display works and not just assume it does.

I've just put in all new inks and now ther is no comunication from my lap top to the printer. ive turned it off.. and the green light keeps flashing along with the orange intermittently,, Its driving to...


Hi,

I suspect that the reason that there is no communication between your laptop and printer is because the printer will not switch online. This is further confirmed by one of the flashing lights. This is a standard feature if the built-in diagnostics of most current printers tells it that something is wrong.

Since as you posted/described "I've just put in all new inks and now..." was when the problem started, pls verify:
1. the ink cartridges are seated properly at their assigned slots;
2. most ink cartridges when new have a sticker cover of some sort to protect the electronic/contact pins. Pls verify that they were removed;
3. the cover/panel doors are securely lock in place;
4. verify that the USB cable/connectors are attached;
5. you have installed the correct model of ink cartridges, they are original and not generic/replacements/refills;
6. all others are where they should be, paper in tray, slides extended and nothing out of the ordinary;

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back with the brand and model of your printer. it might be of further help if you can post your laptop's brand & model as well as the operating system.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi i have this satellite r630-155 and i think it got hit by a virus. I dont see any recovery cd with the box. How will i reformat it? Thanks!


Depending on what kind of problems the virus is causing, you have a few different options.

If the virus has only wreaked havoc on the operating system, you can reinstall it. Toshiba laptops do not come with a recovery CD. Instead, Toshiba provides a way for you to restore the computer's OS to its original factory settings through the boot menu. The details on how to do this for your make and model can be found here: http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD9102IR0000R01.htm

If the virus has somehow managed to prevent you from getting as far as the boot menu, or if the virus has destroyed the Toshiba factory settings backup, then you will need to contact Toshiba and have them replace the operating system. If you are under warranty, this will be of no cost to you.

If it has onboard video it may be a bad video cable or messed up pin on one af the connectors. If it is a installed video card the cable could still be one problem but also try pulling the video card out unplugging the power supply cable from the mother board for about 20 seconds or so. Then reslot the video card into the mother board and plug the power supply back into the mother board and see if that helps. I have also had to take the small flat battery out of mother board for a second or two to make it reset. If you decide to do the battery thing make sure the power supply is unplugged from mother board. Good luck.=)

Your symptoms make me believe that you're out of Power Supply. Does this happen all of a sudden?
