Toshiba satellite Dead

Hi. I own a Toshiba Satellite P300 - 19H. I was writing a paper and decided to leave the computer on and unplugged, with my document open on the screen, for an hour. I figured the battery would die and that I would restart the computer and still have the document. Strangely enough, however, when I returned I found that the battery was still charged, the light indicating the computer is "on" was on as well, but the monitor was blank. I have hooked it up to the charger - it doesn't respond. I have tried ctrl - alt - del and escape - it still won't respond. I've also tried putting in a dvd and a memory stick. In those cases it whirs like it is reading them, but the monitor remains blank. I try to turn it off but it won't respond at all. The lights stays on, the computer continues to whir, but the monitor won't work. What should I do?

Try to push and hold the power button. It more than likely went into hibernation/sleep mode. If this does nothing then remove the battery and charger, then put the battery back in and plug it in and see if this does anything.

I don't think that's available on laptops; I've never seen it on Toshiba models. There is usually a small battery to save BIOS info and keep the clock going when the main battery is out. It's either under the keyboard or near the memory or wireless card compartment. Remove the main battery and leave the adapter unplugged. Open the compartments and look for a a connector with just a red and black wire connected to it - if you see it going to a coin cell, that's the one you want. Unplug it and wait ten seconds. Plug it in and put everything back together. If you got the right connector, your computer will probably go straight to BIOS and ask you to set the time and date.

Hi,

certain laptops rely on a battery being present.
Or a battery that holds charge.
i,d suggest refering to the user manual, or go on-line to the manufacturers website.
the laptop may be in hibernation/sleep mode. or require a hard reset.

Application error when running recovery disk


hi

Did you create any partitions on the HDD?
Obviously the HDD or some partitions on the HDD are corrupt.
In my opinion, you should firstly try to format the whole HDD and delete also whole partitions.
Then insert the recovery CD and try to install the Toshiba image
