First thing is to check your power supply if its giving a correct voltage for your notebook. if its ok...try to remove your battery and unplug it in then press the power button for about 60 secs. then try to start your notebook in AC (without battery)

If the problem persist, remove the RAM inside your laptop and clean it from dust (also clean your fan and heatsink from dust) then return it back and also check for loose wirings and cable connections.

If everything fails...then you have a bad motherboard (overheated).

Why am I getting a blank screen after login?


In case you are using Win OS try to start in save mode. First the Bios is activated after pushing the power button. If you see the screen from the Bios start pushing F8 which brings you to the save mode start up. When your PC starts you can shut it properly by leaving the save mode. Try to start up the pc again in normal mode. I hope it will fix you problem

Laptop is run and start but no display


There are several reasons that your Toshiba laptop screen may not come on, even if the laptop appears to be running, and several options you may try to get your screen back up and running without an expensive service call.


Common causes for a blank screen include a backlight that is turned off, a display toggled to an external monitor and improper shutdown errors.


To avoid blank screen errors after your current error is fixed, make sure to follow all instructions in your user's guide to care for your Toshiba computer.


Shine a flashlight directly at your screen and look for an image.

If you see one, this means the backlight on your laptop is off but the screen is still working. This backlight normally turns off only when your screen is closed.


Look for a small metal or plastic pin near one of the screen hinges.

The screen pushes this pin in when it is closed, so if the pin is stuck in the screen closed position, the backlight will remain off.


Tap the pin several times to release it.

You may need to use a small object, such as a pencil tip or straightened paper clip, to reach it on some models.


Monitor Toggle


Press and hold down the "Fn" key if you do not see an image when you use the flashlight.

Tap the "F5" key several times while the "Fn" key is pressed.


This will cycle your screen through the various options that toggle the display to an external monitor.


Attach an external monitor, restart the computer and try this method again if no image appears on the laptop screen.


Click "Start," "Control panel," "Hardware and sound," then "Device manager" using the external monitor if you get an image there but cannot toggle the image back to your LCD.


Select the "Monitor" option to expand your selection and select your LCD monitor from the device list.


Click the "Driver" tab and select "Update" to update the driver, as this error is likely caused by a software driver error.


Force Restart


Press and hold the power button until the computer shuts down completely.

Check the indicator lights at the edge of your laptop to see if the computer is truly off or if it has simply gone into hibernation mode.


If it is off, all lights will be off except the battery-related lights if you have a charger plugged in. In hibernation mode, the power light will blink slowly.


Press the power button to restart the computer again after leaving it off for 15 to 20 seconds. This may fix the problem.


If the blank screen returns or you get a flash of images and then a blank screen, move on to the next step.


Force Power Down


Unplug your laptop from the power source.

Remove the battery by pressing outward on the battery latch and pulling the battery unit completely out of the computer.


Press the power button several times to completely discharge the computer.

Replace the battery and plug the computer back in after about 30 seconds.


Press the power button to turn on the computer.

If you get an error screen upon startup, choose to restart Windows normally.


This error is caused by improper shutdown procedures.


Hope this helps

Laptop not starting properly


follow these steps & ur issue might get resolved(80% chances):
turn off ur notebook-->take out the laptop battery(not the cmos battery)-->disconnect the charger if its connected to the notebook-->now press & hold the power key for atleast 20 seconds, remember that u have to press & hold the power key & dont release the power key till 20 seconds are over--> & ensure that the notebook is not connected to any power source while u r performing this step niether the battery nor the charger--> also there shouldn't be any peripherals connected to the notebook-->once 20 seconds are over & u have released the power key-->connect the battery & the charger back to the notebook & now try to turn on the notebook-->u might not get a blank screen & ur issue might get resolved, turn off ur notebook again & restart to ensure that its not reoccuring....(This whole step is known as power drain & it is done to remove the extra static electricity which sometimes get stored in the notebook & gives a blank screen in return.)

you killed the laptop with out a UPS and you get a power surge with a dead battery them laptop takes the surge and kills the computer. You can remove the battery and unplug the power supply and hold the power button down for a minute then plug the power back in without the battery and try pushing the power button to see if it comes on if it does your lucky. IF it does not put the battery back in and try again. if There is still no power you have killed the power converter or killed the computer.

Hang up


Possibly due to corrupted graphics driver, or resolution changed to one unsupported by your laptop. Try restarting in safe mode by tapping F8 key on boot and select "safe mode" press enter then enter again. If it gets to windows in safe mode log on as an administrator and go to "display" in control panel, select adapter and change the driver by rolling back to a previous version or simply uninstall, which is what i did! Then restart the computer, it should now boot to windows but the resolution will be naff, get on the internet find the latest driver from your laptop manufacturer download this to the desktop and install from there. Worked for me, hope it does the same for you.
