    when im using the lap top it will sometimes just go black i have to reboot to get the screen back

  • nsrader13 Feb 28, 2009

    Out of nowhere the screen just goes black. Usually I have to power off my laptop and re boot it. However just a few minutes ago i was messing with the power saving options and set it to high performance and now when you try to power it on, it goes to the boot menu and then powers itself back off again. I just read something that said Toshiba has a problem with their power saving options and this is the result of it.

    Does it do this if you boot into safe mode

    Have you installed any new program recently?



    Has this problem only just started?



    Do you have up to date anti-virus?

Boot up in safe mode if you can by depressing the f8 key. select options to boot with networking. from there if you are able to get on, go to Toshiba's website and download the latest video drivers and bios. Make sure you flash your bios and update drivers then attempt to boot normally. this should resolve your issue. Let me know if that helps, I have another solution if that does not.

Good Luck!

Restore toolbar. It did not return when screensaver had been showing and I tried to get back to work again.


Do a hard re-boot, hold down the power button until the lap top turns off. Then re-start and check to see if everything is ok.

No start up page just has screensaver


from the black widows screen, hit ctrl-alt-delete. This will bring up a menu. Choose task manager, the file...run. In the run box type restore. From the box that comes up choose rsttui.exe. This is the windows restore utility. Follow the steps to restore your system, choose a date from before the issue started happening.

Getting frequent black screens on 1501 Inspiron Laptop


Black screen is probably a screen saver or the screen is turned off by power management software.
Check your screensaver setting. Change the screensaver to None to disable screensaver.
I assume you are using Windows XP.
If the LCD is turned off by power management, on the same screen with screen saver, on the lower part of the box there is a Power button. Click to open Power Options Properties. Set your monitor power properties there.
When the screen go blank and you have to push power button, probably the computer is set to go to stand by mode after some idle minutes. You can also set it here in system standby setting.

It sound like your power settings are turning the screen off. Try the following:
Right click on a the desktop and select Properties and then Screensaver and then click on Power. You will see power settings that tell the computer whether or not to turn off different things at different times. You'll see "Turn off monitor" and a selection next to it. It probably says "after 20 minutes". Change the setting to whatever you want between 1 minute and 5 hours, or Never. Let me know how you did, please grade this.
