Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
Hi!!!someone can help me....not sure what i should do.....last night i was trying to switch on my laptop....on a begining i thought that maybe the battery is off but it's fine......when i am switching on my laptop all i can see is the blue light which mean that it's on but nothing is working??i have no idea what i should do?? is anyone can help me please???
I don't have that model, but the layout is probably similar to mine. On the left hand side near the screen there is a blue socket where you can plug a VGA monitor, or, on the same side (on mine) there is a round socket where you can plug in an S-video cable and connect that to some types of TV set. Plug in any external monitor before attempting to start the computer, and the computer should pick up the new device. If that doesn't work, you may need to press the Fn key + F5.
If your computer isn't like this, you will need to check the handbook which should have come with it.
I was wondering whether it was a total failure to power up, or a display problem. The commonest display issues have to do with the back light or the inverter, and they are more likely to fail slowly over several hours rather than fail catastrophically, but that can happen.
But if the hard drive doesn't seem to be spinning up either, it does suggest that something else is to blame, and probably not the drive itself, otherwise the computer would try to boot and then fail with a message that no operating system could be found.
So, what you are telling me doesn't sound really wonderful. If you can't even get the Toshiba splash screen on an external monitor when you try it, my suspicion would be that your laptop is, to use a technical term, kaput.
But it could still be recoverable; however you would need to take it to a laptop repairer for a thorough physical.
