Question about Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422 Notebook

1 Answer

Cannot get the computer past the log in

My Toshiba A215 shut itself down a few days ago and now when I try to turn it on it comes on as far as the log in page. I put in my password and then it begins to look as though it is opening but then the little welcome circle just keeps circling or it freezes up and I cannot get it to open up. I have tried the system restore and got nowhere.

Thanks... a Few days ago, i tried to turn on my toshiba A215, so appeared the bios password screen. I don't know what is the password.... Can you tell me how I can do? thanks


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

My A215 wont stay powered up. It shut down and


Try running the computer on the Battery power and check if the power sustains. If not, then disconnect the power cord and remove the battery and leave it for a few hours then try turning it on.

If the problem exists then the power supply unit is required to be replaced. You may contact service center to get the power supply unit replaced.

When I turn on my A215 S7422 Toshiba it give me a password screen


You may need to consult with whoever you're living with. Seems you got pranked.
If you live by your lonesome, keep in mind that only you can put in a user password. This miracle of some virus, or act of something, is not possible. To my knowledge that kind of virus has to be user specific. Targeting you only.
Contact Toshiba for password woes.

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?

When I boot up the screen is all colors and lines


It sounds to me like your cable is loose to the lcd or the video card is not properly 100 percent seeded into the mother board. Prolly the cable in one way or the other, perhaps bad cable.
