Re: need driver samsung ln52a650 on toshiba p25 s509
We have had out Toshiba P25-S509 for a very long time. It's a great laptop and watching DVDs with a wide screen was great; That is, until the CD/DVD player was no longer recognized by the computer. We took it in (still under warranty) to have it fixed, only to not work again after a couple of months.
Now YEARS have gone by and I have bought another Toshiba (M305D-S4831) which is great unless you try to reboot and it doesn't fully start up. That's for another review, not this one... So, back to the P25-S509 and YEARS later. We just received two 1GB memory cards, which are being used to replace the "stock" two 256 MB memory cards. Well, the computer is MUCH FASTER and THE DVD PLAYER FINALLY WORKS!!! Woo-Hoo! $98.00 investment in memory cards saved up from ditching the older Toshiba.
Hope this review helps someone out there that might have had the same problem.

Does the display show anything before you enter windows? If yes, then press the key to transfer video back to your original screen once you enter windows. It should be the function key "Fn" + F5 - F8. looks for the icon which shows a monitor or says "CRT/LCD".
If it doesn't show anything before you enter windows I'm afraid your screen needs to be replaced. Good luck.
Without knowing whether these are long beeps, short beeps or combinations, I can still narrow down a couple of solutions for you. The beeps are a code for what kind of error the system is experiencing. The code is different for differing Bios manufacturers. It is safe to say that either the display adapter or keyboard are not properly connected.
If you replaced the mainboard on your own, I am assuming (and hoping) you have an above average layman's experience with hardware tech.
If you don't already have a SERVICE MANUAL for your model of Toshiba (NOT the USER MANUAL) get one. You can probably find one and download it for free in a PDF format from the Internet.
Try disassembling your laptop again and make sure both the keyboard cables and internal monitor cables are correctly connected.

What type of Video Card in in the laptop? check the laptop case on left side of keyboard sometimes stickes are there saying what type. I have seen ATI Mobility cards in laptops that have all the software working on the machine properly, but the display driver is either bad and cirrupt and causes the machine to reboot, or its a fualty video card that can cause the machine to crash.
Easy way to check, boot the machine and as windows XP boots press the F8 key (this enters safe mode) when menu appears choose safe mode with networking. and let it continue. if it boots up and continues to a display and doesn't crash, the video driver is bad. then just uninstall the video driver, then go to the nabufacturers website and download a new video driver for your model laptop.
I think this is already a hardware problem, it could be your LCD or your systemboard, try connecting an external LCD or monitor thru the VGA -out & check if you have a display. If not, it might be your systemboard that's causing the problem & this may require service.
