Toshiba satellitep205d-s7438 won't boot up


You need to be more specific and tell what happens when you plug in the power cord and press the power button. There are a number of reason why a computer will not boot, but if you tell what's going on someone can help you.

Computers don't boot for basically the following reasons, 1) the power supply is bad. That means when you plug it in you don't see any lights, and when you press the power button nothing happens, you hear no fans, no beeps, no blinking lights, no hard drive spinning, no cd drive clicking and nothing appears on the lcd screen.

2) A motherboard issue, usually when this happens you will either see blinking lights or hear beeps. Those blinking lights and beeps are codes that tell the technician what is really going on.

3) Static Buildup - try removing the battery and the power cord then Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds put the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and Press the Power Button. If it boots up you had static buildup and can replace the battery, count your blessings and Thank The Lord cuz a dishonest repairman would have told you he had to replace the motherboard for $300

My Toshiba Satellite pro s300 ez2501 , is being stuck and fan should run fastly with rough sound, we cant do any thing at this time, only function key can work but nothing will happened.


This is an open ended question as I am not aware of your problem, however,
Disconnect your power supply and remove the battery.
Refit the battery and plug in the AC adaptor, check the power light and battery light are illuminated.
Keep disconnect any periferals, (USB devices) and ensure the DVD drawer is empty. Press the power button. The POST should now start up flashing a line of led's across the top of the keyboard first followed by the hard drive light.
The BIOS F2 or F12 choice screen will now appear. If it doesn't the laptop hasn't completed POST and can go no further however, if it gets that far;
Press F12 and select Hard Drive for the boot device, the laptop will then try and boot from the hard drive, just as the boot chioce menu dissapears press F8, this will opem a further menu allowing you to repair your system. This, if selected, will collect data stored on drive E and repair the main system putting the OS back as it was when you first purchased the machine.
If that won't work or there is a corrupt file or serious error, you will require an OS system disk.
Place the System disk in the DVD drive, press power until the system tries to boot and when you get to the boot selection menu, press F12 again but select CD/DVD as the boot drive.
Follow my last instructions again and you will have a fresh/repaired system and a working laptop again.
When all is OK go to www.computers.toshiba-europe.com and let toshiba download and install the latest drivers and BIOS.
Hope that helps.

Your OS is not booting. There may be few reasons.
1) Your hard disk is damaged and your BIOS does not recognise your HDD. Goto BIOS setup and see whether your HDD is shown. If it does not appear there, you may have to replace the Hard Disk.
2) Your HDD is recognised by the BIOS but Master Boot Record (MBR) is missing or damaged. Try booting from an XP CD. See whether Windows Setup detects your HDD. If the setup says there is an existing installation, try repairing it. After repairing, reboot and see whether you can use the computer. Otherwise make a new installation.

Blank screen


Hi,
This might me cause of by two problems you need to check:
1 If you have genuine OS,and not expired.
2 your OS is corrupt, you need to repair (with OS disk) or reformat.

another secondary cause is due to malware or other virus infection which results in not displaying screen after bootup.

Try running in safe mode and run antivirus. or boot from OS disk to repair your windows.
