Blank screen on Toshiba L300 -11B TR57

Have been advised to remove battery and disconnect from mains. then hold in power button for 30 seconds and then re connect to mains. still no luck.
Is there such a thing as a key that could be pressed accidently somewhere on the notebook which blankls the screen? (I'm thinking along the lines of a mute button !!)


I have a panicking daughter at UNi across the pennines and I am trying to fix it over the phone!!!!!

    It could be a damaged cable running from your LCD to your motherboard. have it checked out for broken or cracked connections.

Why Toshiba Satellite A665 Laptop won't start?


Have you tried pressing space bar (maybe its in hibernation mode) ?

or try holding power button for a few seconds (10) then turn it back on.

as a last resort you could try take the battery out, disconnect it from the power adapter, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then place the battery back in and the power adapter and try powering it on?

My 1501 Dell Inspiron turns on but I have a blank black screen. The only light that shows is the power light on the upper right side of the laptop.


Power getting to the laptop. Try first to see if this will give a screen image on an external monitor, listen for the sound of the cpu fan, hard drive and DVD rom drives clicking, see if the DVD rom drive will open if pressed.

Then remove battery and AC adaptor, press the power button for 30 secs, refit mains only and try this on mains supply (no battery)

If this fails to boot, check the light on the ac adaptor is a steady green, flashing green indicates power is not fully reaching the laptop (motherboard problems)

If it is steady and the LED power light on the laptop is steady, suspect the DC jack socket. If this feels loose or sloppy, it will need replacing, depending on the type fitted, it may be soldered onto the board, or a wired connector, which sometimes goes bad.

After that, I'd suggest that a capacitor has gone on the actual motherboard and you will need to strip the laptop to check it.

My Toshiba laptop will not turn on. Light comes on showing battery only. Am plugged in.


Remove battery and ac adaptor. press power button and hold for 30 seconds. Reconnect AC power only, try rebooting. If this fails, then you have a problem with the power switch, or the cut off switch which is located just by the screen hinge may be sticking.

Failing that, and assuming the DC jack is a tight fit, you could have a problem with the motherboard. In this case, I would advise you get it checked by a professional

Toshiba satellite becomes unresponsive after bios


Hi,

First of all try this. Turn the laptop off and remove the battery. hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Plug just the AC mains power jack in and turn the laptop on.
If it boots all is well, turn the machine off, put in the battery.

Just out of interest can you remember who manufactured the BIOS? was it Phoenix or AMI?


Good luck.

I have a Toshiba A105 Laptop, Screen goes blank after windows....


Here are some easy things that can sometimes resolve this problem:
1) Sometimes there can be a static buildup on the mother board. Power off, remove the battery, remove the power cord and hold the power button in the on position for at least 30 seconds.
2) If that didn't work- Power down, remove the battery, remove the Hard Drive and memory modules and reinsert them. Try to power back up
If these things don't work, get back to me for some more ideas.
