Question about Toshiba NB205-N310/BN Netbook

Open Question

Problem with Toshiba NB250. It was getting slower and slower in spite of my running all kinds of programs on it to clean it up and defragment it, etc. Then a few days ago it started not wanting to let us in with the password, though it was intermittent. And finally yesterday it just went black. Nothing. I can start it up if I plug it in, but not with the battery power. Is this an indication of a battery problem only or might there be some other serious problem I am overlooking. Any Ideas?

SOURCE: laptop boots up intermittently or screen freezes

basing on the information you have given here are the possible solutions:
remove any external device connected to your system (printer, external hard drive and others) if removing this does not work and still gets a blank screen with blinking cursor try to go to safe mode with networking. if successful try to download the driver for your video adapter.

when you try to start the computer , do get anything on the screen like a logo? when does the blank screen occurs, is it during the turning ON of the computer or during the windows xp logo appears on the screen?

a blank screen could be caused by the following: defective video adapter, corrupted video driver, defective memory, unknown device causing the issue like the hard drive, optical drive or other peripheral installed inside the computer.

try also using an external monitor

SOURCE: screen stays black on startup of toshiba satellite L300

have you tried either switching between external and internal monitor usally Fn + F5 on toshiba or try plugging a monitor into the back and see if it displays.
if you get a display on the external monitor then its probably a screen or inverter fault if you donot get a display to an external screen then it is likley t be the graphics on the board itself.
hope this helps

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite P205D-S7438 won't boot

You did everything that I would have done honestly, with the dvd drive not opening up and the fan not coming on, that would tell me the motherboard isn't regulating the voltage properly since neither is operating.

Either the CPU or the motherboard is bad at this point but I'm leaning toward the motherboard since a bad CPU would not cause a dvd drive not to open but a bad motherboard would especially if its not regulating the voltage properly cause of bad components on the motherboard. See if you can get the motherboard replaced if your machine is under warranty. If not then try to go thru Ebay since places there are less expensive.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite a205 Battery Will Not Charge

You did what all should not have been done. your battery works as a buffer between high surge of electricity which comes through electrical supply i.e. it protects your smps from burning up. From your current position it seems your smps fuse has blown. If they have given one or else your smps itself has gone. I'll tell you for your future usage of battery. Whenever you get any electronic equipment with chargable battery you should never switch it on unless and untill you have charged it for continuous 24 hours. Never try to run such equipment directly through dc or ac power. Hope your fuse has gone its not costly.

I need to rreboot my toshiba nb250 netbook but dont kjnow where to start.


Do you have a boot disk for it?
should be:
Toshiba Toshiba NB250 Windows 7 Driver Recovery CD Restore Disk
if not you'll need to one from the mfr.

Once you have that, you just put it in the drive and let it run.

Warning: you may need to reinstall win7 first.

Format the Operating system and start fresh

Some useless programs or virus's may be slowing down your system
a reset will enable you to regain full speed of your pc again.
And don't forget even with loads of memory the CPU may be lacking to run most of today's programs all at once.

I have a dell dimension 2400 which is getting slower and slower and slower. Have done disk clean up, defragged, etc. Plenty space unused on hard disk. Anti virus etc all up to date. Do you have any ideas?


I run into this type of complaint very often, and it's almost always caused by viruses or spyware. I would recommend that you download two free clean-up tools that are very widely used and trused.

MalwareBytes AntiMalware (MBAM)
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php (download free version)

Super AntiSpyware Free Edition
http://superantispyware.com/ (download free edition)

Install both programs using their default settings, run their respective updates from inside the program, and then run the full scans on both. You can run both scans at the same time, they'll both take a long time to run. Expect the scans to take an hour or more depending on how slow your computer is.

When the scans are finished, you'll get a list of "infected items". Follow the instructions for cleaning and deleting them, then reboot your computer. Once it comes back up, you may want to run both scans again just for good measure. If it comes up clean the second time, you should be all better for a while.

Good luck!

Each day my computer seems to run slower and slower.


Run the commands in your Accessories and also don't forget you need to Defrag and run an Anti-Virus software. The proper programs are under Start>All Programs>System Tools>Disk Cleanup and Defrag. When the housekeeping is done, if your computer is still running slow then the best thing you can do is upgrade the amount of RAM. That will make a noticeable difference.

Please rate this solution.
