A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,
if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on. To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.
Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard. Press the power button if the screen remains black. Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue. Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue. Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment. Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard. Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel.

Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.
Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place. Turn the computer back on.

If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective.

If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken.

If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

SOURCE: computer turns on but screen stays black

This is often caused by the screen lights or screen failing. Try looking at the screen from different angles in different light conditions, you might just be able to see the image.

My toshiba mini laptop NB305 will turn on but it wont boot up, and the screen stay black, how do I fix it?


pull the battery, disconnect the ac adapter and hold down the power button for about 10 seconds, then put the battery back in, plug it in and try booting it. If that works, you're good, if not then the motherboard most likely needs to be replaced.

Toshiba turns on but screen stays black wont boot anything


My 1st inclination would be to tell you to hook up an external monitor and see if the computer actually does anything (i.e., do you get a POST screen or does it stay dead as well).

Obviously, either condition (working or not) alludes to a problem with the motherboard and merits being replaced, however, in several cases with Satellite laptops (I have repaired a multitude of) the cost of the replacement board ends up being quite cost prohibitive. Seeing as several similarly (or progressive) laptops are being sold for as much as the repair parts.

I can imagine this isn't an answer you would like, but I have run into far too often. At least its worth pondering. Plus, there are several software fixes out there that will let you get your information off the old drive as well (so you can migrate it to your new laptop).

Hope this helps...

My toshiba A200 screen occasionally turns black and music also stops. When i try manually restarting my laptop, sometimes it works but most of the time it doesnt boot at all. Sometimes it doesnt even go...


This sounds like a hard drive is, or has failed. Either that or the RAM (memory has gone bad)
Did you let the laptop overheat? Was it left on for a long time? Or is this just an old machine ?
I would replace the hard drive, and reload the operating system, that is if you really want to keep the laptop. If that solves it great! Also, did you notice if there are any "beep" noises, or error messages when it acts up? Often times, you can go on the internet and find out what the messages mean.

Toshiba satellite with windows xp will only show black sreen and wont let windows xp repair


Your description of the symptom shows that your operating system installation has been corrupted. Fastest and easiest way to resolve the Issue using the "Recovery and application disk" (it comes with laptop) to perform full system recovery. I would like to remind you full system recovery will erase everything saved on Hard drive. You can check possible option on http://support.toshiba.com

If you dont have recovery and application disk you get one. You can call Toshiba @ 1-800-457-7777

Please post if you need further assitance

Good Luck

1. Go to this website and download Ultimate Boot CD
2. Now download this tool to burn this Image

1_22_2013_10_27_28_pm.jpg
This is the program you should have downloaded.
Now that you have the program where it says file location look for the location you downloaded your file. Usually its C:\Downloads but it could be in a different location. Once you've located the file burn it to a CD or DVD of your choice.

4. Once you boot this cd you need to look for Partition Manager click on it. Click on HDD and then look for FDISK.

Make sure that you have an active partition which should say C: Active
