    One thing to look at is do you have the "screen blanker" (aka turn off monitor) checked in your power options? Your computer accessing the internet could interpret this as lack of activity and turn the screen off. You didn't say what you had to do to get your display to turn back on, so I'm sort of shooting in the dark, if you'll forgive the analogy!

Toshiba A205 laptop charges fine, but freezes when adapter is plugged in.


Identification
  • Computer shops say that up to 20 percent of Toshiba laptops brought in for repair have issues with overheating. Symptoms may be as simple as the keyboard and bottom of the laptop being very hot while the computer is working, or the fans running at maximum rotation while the system becomes very slow for several minutes at a time. More inconvenient issues are common, such as the system completely seizing up and having to be "killed" with the battery pulled out, or the computer may shut down all by itself with no warning. Sometimes the laptop works fine until the user starts any significant memory-demanding applications, like photo editing software, several Internet windows being open at the same time, or an Internet video stream.
Significance
  • A common problem with the Toshiba laptop is that dust becomes clogged between the cooling fan and the heatsink, a device which lowers the temperature by dissipating heat into the surrounding air. Now heat produced by the processor is trapped inside the laptop, and the fan cannot blow it out.

I have black and white lines running down the screen after I connected it to internet. How do I get rid?


Could be a lose cable, Check the cables connecting to the monitor (screen) and the to PC.

Also, made sure your phone or any other electronic device(s) aren't in close proximity to the screen. They sometimes cause interference.

I have constant trouble with my toshiba laptop using windows vista constantly losing the dial up internet connection.


If your telephone line may have disturbances from any electronic devices at any point then this could happen. Try moving other devices especially speakers, mobile phones and TV near the modem. Does your laptop wifi enabled one? Do you use telephone in that line? If so use a line filter with two out. could you give your laptop model no.? There is not enough details to pinpoint the problem

There is two problem possible for these symptoms:

You need technical support. We may need some components to be changed. If you think you can do it on your own, see http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/09/05/troubleshooting-laptop-with-backlight-failure/

Stopped connecting to internet through land line


hi there, i had kind a same problem with u, the only difference is mine shows "connected" but i can't surf the internet when others in my network are doing just fine. 1st i tried to uninstall my LAN card driver and the reinstall it back. It worked, i can surf the internet but only for a few minutes. So i installed a firewall, in my case, i installed windows defender. After reinstalling my LAN card driver, i realized an unknown program tried to change some of my LAN driver files, so i denied the program access using windows defender. The problem solved !! Maybe it's a virus or spyware, i don't know because before installing windows defender, my avg and antispyware don't detect any virus/spyware. Hope this help, gud luck
