Monitor won,t wake up from sleep mode

Open monitor and look at power supply board for capacitors which are "balooning" or deformed in any way. These look like cylindars on the board. These tend to dry out and make what you are describing occur. Replacing them usually fixes about 80% of the problem you are describing. Those parts run about $0.25 to $0.75 each.. well worth trying, right?

Hi. I have a HP Compaq 6820S, Intel Pentium T7250, 2 Gb RAM, 160 Gb HDD, i have a problem, Laptop won't charge battery. I let the laptop in sleep mode, around 7 days, when i come back, battery was 0%,...

try a new battery yet? (brand new fresh)
sleep mode. so you want it to run for 7 days in sleep.
ive no idea how long this laptop runs in sleep
and hibernate is longer.
no idea at all.
you do know that the speed features are programmable
including what chips do and do not go to sleep'
like USB ports, WIFI, and all wake on , features. like Ethernet chip.
and more.
why not just turn it off, and let the battery last longer..
this mode sleep kills batteries faster. way faster.
leave it plugged in all the time to the wall pack.
so the battery never drains unless you need to use it, on battery.

Could be hardware problem. You might need to try to connect to a different screen which you know is working. If it appear to be normal, it indicate that you need to replace the screen.

Toshiba satellite laptop won't wake up from hibernation even after holding power botton down?!

If pressing down and holding the restart/start button doesn't wake it up you might try Control + ALT + DELETE keys (together) - that will reboot it though. And if that won't work then you might have to pull the battery to reset it.

It seems that some laptops have a problem with vista and sleep mode, in particular, and sometimes hibernate too. You can try going under POWER OPTIONS under Control Panel and setting everything back to default, saving it, then resetting it again. Also it's best to avoid using sleep mode if possible to avoid problems.

If the problem developed after a recent install or updating you may need to go to an older store point to fix the problem. Personally, I just avoid using these settings as much as possible and use regular shut down and a screen saver for times when I need to step away from laptop for short periods of time.

Sounds like your display panel needs to be replaced.As far as your speakers they sound to have gone bad if it plays sound externally but not on the onboard ones.

I have a line going down the middle of my toshiba laptop, any suggestions??

Usually indicates first signs of LCD going out. Must replace monitor or replace parts inside the lcd screen.. Both are costly and the best way is to replace the screen but depending on the age of the laptop you are better off investing in new low end model. Most laptop screens go from 150-250 and newer lower end laptop goes for 400 so tough call.

I have a Toshiba satellite p105-s6147 when i press the power button the blue light comes on but nothing happens even when i have it pluged in the wall with and without the battery.

Majority of the time with the P105 it's the motherboard that is at fault.

You can try reseatting the memory modules to see if that makes a difference but other than that there's not much you can do but replace the board or send it into Toshiba for repair.
