Lwhen laptop is turned on it only gives a blank screen.

My laptop starts up with the initial Toshiba screen then goes to a blank screen with a white dash in the upper right corner. No funtion buttons work...NOTHING works. I've tried to start it and run the recovery disk but this does not work either.

Im having problems with my Toshiba Satellite L455DS5976 it wont start up. it will go to the normal toshiba screen when you turn it on but after that the screen goes blank and theres a white line what...


I had the same problem. Let it run that way for about 5-10 minutes, it should show a menu, choose START WINDOWS NORMALLY.
It will take some more time to boot, be patient. Once you start it, do the clean up, virus check and delete everything you don't it. That worked for me.
If this helps, please rate. Thank you

Toshiba M300 screen turns white blank.


White screen means that your lamp (back light) is working absolutely fine, but you could have a loose connection for the data ribbon cable, which sends the images to the monitor.
Carefully open laptop to reach its lcd, there must be ribbon cable which looks like this: mrc-0069.gif
It is very sensitive so be very careful with that, very gently remove this from the chip and reconnect it.
Hope this helps, Please feel free to ask me any further.

Blank white screen in my Acer Travelmate 5730 Laptop


Hello Karthik,
This must surely be a problem with your monitor, because you say that you see the white screen while boot up. If this is a graphic driver issue, you may have the problem after booting up in windows. Since its been only a month old laptop, the product must be in warranty for sure. Take away any CDs in the drive, any USB drives and see if this white screen appears. Let us know.

Thank you!

Cold boot the PC by holding the power button for at least 5 seconds.

Hit F8 before the windows logo appears , select Last Known Good Congiuration. Try booting.

If same issue , try again , this time select safe mode , this should allow you to get in and undo any changes you made.

My toshiba m35x-s111 laptop screen goes blank


According to the description of the fault and the symptoms that your equipment presents, you must replace the FL inverter, that is the one that gives the turn on of the screen of your equipment, if your you replace this piece that one finds behind of the mask of the screen in the low part and that is similar to a pen I assure you that your equipment it was working in perfect conditions

Toshiba satellite screen blank


This could be that the hard drive has failed, and could also be the reason for the initial crash. Run a drive test in the bios or set up. If the test fails in any area then the hard drive is bad and will need replaced. If it passes, then reformat the drive and reinstall XP.
