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.

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.

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:
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.
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.
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
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.
Well try to boot into the safe mode.hit F8 on the startup and see if you get the same acreen.If its working fine in safe mode than you need to reinstall the video driver and that should resolve the issue.If it is still not working try connecting a external moniter.If you get the same display on the external moniter than its an issue with the video card and if you get a normal display on that than its an issue with the Laptop screen and you would ahve to get either of thses replaced by contacting the manufacturer.
Hope this helps!
