Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6337 Notebook

Computer turns on but screen wont

When i turn the power on i can hear it running and lights flash on the keyboard but the screen stays blank.Help? 4 out of 5 times (sometimes more than that) my computer will turn on but screen will remain blank. Does anyone know if that's a hardware problem? Or is it a driver? The laptop is 2 years old, the problem started couple months ago. It only happened one time at first and now it's worse. I had to put it in the hibernate mode instead of turning it off but now that's not working anymore. When i come out the hibernate mode screen won't turn on.

First,If you are running windows vista,This can be due to an update that has your video driver and windows video driver running at the same time.

Hardware would be the invertor board is bad.

Ttry to start with F8 and choose start in vga mode,If this allows you to start normally,go to the device manager and update the video drivers

remove all attached devices like printers or flash drives. remove battery and power on using ac adapter only. if it still wont work, try another good ac adapter. make sure ac adapter light is on. if it still shows the power light on and nothing else, replace motherboard.

Dell latitude d620 once i turn on power the power and bluetooth light comes on while the keyboard status lights flash screen stays blank and after about five seconds turns itself off ?


Is the laptop really turning itself off, or is the display just not doing anything?

It sounds like it could be a problem with the nVidia GPU used on the D620.

Dell has extended the warranty on the nVidia GPUs by 1 year. Call Dell and describe the problem.

Laptop screen only starts up 1/4th of the time


Sounds like you have a lot of spyware and malware. Anti-spyware software (such as SpyBot) and antimalware software 9such as Malwarebytes) may not ultimately help, but it's worth a try. I really think that you will need to completely reinstall Windows. Use the CD that came with your system, as it has all your drivers. Let us know if you need help to reinstall. Good luck.

Try removing the battery and starting up just on power supply. May be a bad battery. If that doesn't work let me know.
