Does it make a beeping sound when you turn it on? If it does try this:
Turn it off and take the battery out for about 2 minutes. Put the battery back in and press the power button to turn on. Immediately tap the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring you to the advanced boot options. Choose last known good configuration.
If that doesn't work you may also try choosing system restore in the advanced boot options and follow the instructions. Note that a system restore brings the computer setting back to a previous restore point and will removes all changes after that chosen date.
I hope this helps.
when makes changes on memory ...always reinstall .and first go to bios and restore factory defaults ...optimal factory defaults ... this will do to recognize the new modules ...and installing will aware the system about the changes..
Make sure that your first boot option is CD and second boot option is Hard Drive. You can do this by entering Setup when you boot up your computer. Computer manufacturers use different options for entering Setup, the most common being either by pressing F1 or F2 or DEL.
Once in Setup, go to the Boot tab and check the Boot Device Sequence. If Boot from CD is not first, you need to follow screen instructions to change it. Then, 'save and exit'.
While your computer is on, open the CD drive and insert your recovery disk. Then, turn off your computer.
Reboot and your recovery program should start automatically.
MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP ALL OF THE FILES YOU WANT TO KEEP BEFORE DOING ANY OF THE ABOVE STEPS!!
Could be the "resume" battery that has died - its an internal battery shrink wrapped in bright green plastic on tosh's normally - you might be able to get to it by unplugging stuff, battery, cd rom etc etc....unplug it and plug it back in again, if it comes alive again order another. I went on a toshiba laptop maintenance course years ago with a company that i worked for and that error that youre seeing was the fix....see if that works...
dont press any key....dude.....if your windows is still working fine...if you want to disable that booting from cd...check this out..
1. reboot laptop and press F2 to bios setup
2.select the boot settings in the bios
3. in the boot order..make the first boot device the HDD and second the cd drive and third whatever you want..
to change press F5 or F6
and save the setting you've make and reboot the laptop
you should have a recovery CD which came with the laptop, which should restore it to it's original condition.
if you only have a windows install CD you can boot from this CD and perform a fresh install (deleting the existing partitions first) PLEASE remember to back up your data first as it will be impossible to restore if it is deleted in this way.
you will have to manually re-install all the software as well, if there is no basic recovery CD.
If you have tried a new power supply and taking out the battery and it still won't start, then the problem is with the power management system on the motherboard. This means that the motherboard will have to be replaced. Check into your warranty, being that it's only 10 months old, it should still be under warranty. If so, then get it to them to be fixed asap, before they decide your warranty doesn't cover it.
Go to the BIOS menu and select the Main Tab... see if the computer sees your drive. If not send it to the manufacturer or look to see if you can get to the HD without cracking open the main case to the laptop if you can... check the connection from the HD to the connectors to the motherboard
