SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite L655D s5050 when turn on power comes up charging light comes up disc drive works but nothing on screen and the vga port didnt work as well

Nothing on internal monitor screen, and nothing on external VGA monitor?

You have a bad graphics chipset. This = replace motherboard.

Before you rush out to buy a motherboard, let's review on how to properly connect a VGA monitor to that Toshiba Satellite L655D-s5050;

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect the VGA monitor to the RGB port on the side of the laptop.

2) By DEFAULT, the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

DOES NOT mean it will.

No display on external VGA monitor?
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, tap ONCE on the F5 key.
(O-N-C-E. NOT repeatedly!)

Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F5 key.

Still no?

Hold the Power On button down until the laptop turns off.
Remove the VGA cable, and all external cables/devices.

Close the laptop, turn it over on the table in front of you.
(I recommend a soft, static free cloth on the table, to prevent scratching the table, and laptop)

Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

Remove the Memory Compartment Cover.
(Middle of laptop on bottom. Rectangular cover with three Philips head screws)

Make SURE your body is free from Static, and remove all ram memory modules. (Slot A, and Slot B, IF, there are two ram memory modules)

Handle the ram memory module by the BODY. The body is everywhere, but the gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
The body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.
Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.

Clean EACH gold plated contact pin with a pencil eraser.
BOTH sides.
If using a pencil eraser on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser, refrain from letting the metal band contact the gold plated contact pins.

Just rub up, and down on each pin.
When finished use air to remove the eraser dust. You can use a can of compressed air for computers if available, or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Reinstall just one ram memory module, (If you have two), in Slot A.
Make SURE it is in Slot A. The Processor reads Slot A first. If no ram memory module is in Slot A, the laptop will not work.

Put the Memory Compartment Cover back on.
Reinstall the Battery. Turn the laptop over, and open it back up.
Plug the AC adapter (Charger) in.

WAIT 1 minute, turn the laptop on. Still no?
Turn the laptop off, and attach the external VGA monitor again.
Try it. (Don't forget you may have to use the Display Toggle-Over key)

Still no?
I suggest the graphics chipset is bad. Motherboard replacement.

When i turn on my toshiba satellite l655d-s5093 nothing happened but i can hear just the fun no sound for the hdd nothing happened at all

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

My toshiba satellite l505d-s5986 has black screen and won't boot but fan is working

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

Chris Hingee is absolutely correct. Even if you reset the laptop bios password, you will not be able to reset the hard drive bios password. That old hard drive is your new paper weight after you purchase a new hard drive.

My Toshiba Tecra M5 won't boot. The power light flashes on and off, the fan starts but nothing is on the screen. How can I get it to boot?

Well, it sounds like you have a hardware problem. Start by removing the Ram and hard Drive from the machine and insert a boot disk. If your not getting the Tecra Splash screen when you press the power button, the screen that appears before the windows boot screen, you may have a bad Monitor or Burned background lamp or faulty BIOS install or upgrade. Any of which will give you this problem.

Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location
