Restart and hold down F8 before it gets to windows logo. That will start it in safe mode. Then if you can see the display, the issue is with the display adapter driver,

SOURCE: toshiba satellite p305-s8825 beeps 3 times on start up

http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm it sounds like you have the "award bios" that means there is a video conflict or error.

remove any new hardware, undo what ever you did before the reboot. start there. if that doesnt work its a hunt and peck to find the conflicting hardware. remove and PCMCIA cards, then give it a try just keep disasembling one part at a time until the beep stops and begins to boot. if you dont feel comfortable disasembling anymore, its needs service.

I hope this solution is helpful.

Black screen and blinking underscore before loading OS


chipset drivers that are loaded onto the harddrive are not the same as the ones in the "new" computer you put it into.

The only way to do that is format the drive and start from vanilla.

This is very common. -Jeff

Blank screen after xp welcome screen no power to keyboard


Ok, with your current set up, what beeps are you getting? Also, while you have a blank desktop, hit CTRL+ALT+DELETE and you'll have Task Manager come up, click File and then New Task and type in "explorer" without quotes and hit enter. That should restore your desktop. Let me know how it goes.
