Maybe you can replace RAM module, it looks like memory is the problem.

SOURCE: Toshiba Tecra 8100 will not boot, even the toshiba boot screen not displayed

http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/faq.jsp?z=234&service=EU&from=faq_selection&CFID=BIOS&FID=TRO0000000b07

Thats a link to info about bios updates on the tosh website. If you're not getting to the toshiba screen then POST has not completed which means that either there's a hardware problem or the bios is corupt. If you're sure the RAM is ok try flashing the Bios.

Problem is though, to make the bios update disc, you need a working computer.

and, err, It'll probably have to be a toshiba!
(sorry, not my fault!)

4 Beeps means there is a fault with the CPU.

It could be that the fan is faulty and needs replacing, or it coul be that the CPU is dead.

Unless you are technically mined enough to take the machine apart yourself, then your only course of action is to take it to a dealer for repair.

SOURCE: toshiba m50-mx2 powers up okay but no display

when you have the memory in and you boot up does it look like the hard drive LED is flashing? If so then its booting up into windows and that would mean a bad Display. If nothing happens then try a different stick of good RAM and see if it boots up then, if still nothing then it sounds like a bad motherboard.

SOURCE: system recovery disk will not load vista on my

Ohhh not good. and you may not have needed a reload. Try removing and replacing the RAM, if issue remains, try replacing RAM with "known good" ram. Ram does fail. If still no go, time for a bench diagnostic by a technician.

Hello,
These beeps are error code and two short beeps during start up normally refers to RAM or memory not being detected. You can try to reseat the RAM modules or ask someone who knows how to do it. If it will still be the same, it means that the RAM is defective and consider replacing it.
Cheers!

Display not working, computer turns on


Step 1.
Attach a regular CRT to the monitor port on the back of your system. You'll be able to use
the computer as before using the CRT as your display rather than the system LCD display.
Step 2.
Use your computer software (you didn't mention what OS you're running), hunt up any/all
vendor-supplied video diagnostics for your system, or download the manual for
your computer at:

Blank display, machine seems to boot ok but display is blank.


If you hear your computer beep once then your system has no problem. If it does'nt show a display, try to check the power of your monitor, if it has power. Check the power cords and also the vga connection.

you should see the post screen if the monitor is working. try hte fn and the monitor or display key. some laptops toggle the display this way. another possibility is the lid switch that shuts off the display when you close the lid. and it could be heat damage.

Toshiba Satellite a215-s7437 will not boot at all - black screen


It sounds like two possible things. One thing may be that your screen is not working anymore. Can you get a monitor and plug it into your port located on the side of your laptop? If your screen pops up on the monitor this tells us your screen is either in need of replacement or a connection may be loose.

If that is not the case......

Another thing is your hard drive may not be initiating. If you feel confident enough I would open the back where the hard drive is located and make sure the hard drive is not loose. Does it give you any beeping sounds when you turn it on? Can you count the number of beeps? This will tell you what the problem is on boot up. Also, is it a black screen with a cursor blinking?

Toshiba satellite a215s7422 screen blackout problem, however, computer powers up and fan is running. external monitor will start in safe mode. sometimes i see the word signal on external monitor. help


Sounds like your refresh rate is incorrect

Boot into safe mode. Go to Start > Control Panel > Under Appearance and Personalization , select Adjust screen resolution ,
Selct your laptops display , set the resolution to 1024x768 , click on advanced settings then click the monitor tab at the top.
In the box below , select Use hardware default setting .

Hit ok.

If that doesnt fix it something is wrong with the drivers.

Start in safe mode with networking and get the drivers from here and install them.

Put the laptop back together, its possible youve damaged one of the boards, and the "coin sounds" you hear are jsut beeps from the motherboard indication some form of system failure. call toshiba and see if you have any warranty coverage, and out of curiosity what did you drop on it? something heavy i presume?
