Try this -

1. Remove any USB devices such as ipod, printers etc etc

2. Remove the ac adapter and the battery

3. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

4. Put the ac adapter back in but not the battery

5. Dont plug in any other devices and turn the computer on.

    OK, you could try this -



    Turn the computer on as soon as you do start tapping F8 if you get the advanced boot menu then choose Low Resolution Mode/VGA Mode.



    If windows does load then your screen resolution will be at minimum and set it to your prefered resolution from Display Properties.

Toshiba c55t-a5222 bios update, after reboot no screen


Did it at anytime lose power during updating? If so, motherboard was damaged and needs replaced. Otherwise, try to boot into'Safe Mode with Networking' and if it turns on, immediately re-install your graphics (video) driver. See this link for instructions on booting in to safe mode on a Toshiba: http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Windows-7-Knowledge-Base/How-To-Start-your-Windows-7-computer-in-Safe-Mode/ta-p/272525

Your hard drive may have gone south. Remove it and check with diagnostic software. Bad sectors in critical areas of operating system data will do this.

Toshiba screen press f2 for set up and f12 bios management


I guess a new software install could have caused the issue. The could be conflict between devices.

Remove all the USB devices connected to the laptop. Remove external mouse and keyboard also if any.

Try booting. If it still does not boot then restart system and keep pressing F8 to view the boot options. If you get the boot screen then choose Safe mode option and try booting in to the desktop. Once the desktop is available go to Start-> Accessories-> System Tools-> System Restore to restore your system to a previous date.

If F8 does not work then probably you can do a complete reinstall of the OS by pressing F11 or Ctrl+F11. You will lose all the data in the system using this option and the system will be restored back to its factory settings. (This option works only if the laptop has manufacturer provided OS in it)

else you need to contact Toshiba tech support for any hardware related issues

Hope it helps !
Good Luck !

Does boot up


If you are getting the underscore in the upper left corner of the screen the laptop is not froze, however it cannot find an OS (Operating system- aka windows) This leaves us with 2 possible options:
1. Your system (Bios) has changed boot priority
  • Depending on your computer you may get a prompt to press a key to change the boot order, if this is the case make sure your C: drive is selected, or Hard disk drive as it is a laptop you should only have one.
  • If you do not get a prompt for a boot priority screen you will have to enter the BIOS or system setup, this is ussaly done by pressing "Delete" or "F2" when you first boot up you will see the screen and it will tell you what key to press. Go into the bios and look for the boot priority settings and make sure your hard drive is at the top of your list
2. Your computer's hard drive has been corrupted and you may have to reinstall the OS.
