SOURCE: My brand new Toshiba SAtellite C850 F31Q screen stays black on startup. What can I do?

Got this from another site, since I had the same problem:

The problem is with the power settings, not the OS or anything else
Here are the fix steps:
1. Turn off your computer
2. Disconnect every wire from it (including power)
3. Disconnect the battery from the bottom of the computer. There will be two tabs labeled 1 and 2.
4. Re-plug in the power wire. (the battery should not be in the computer)
5. Turn on the power. The screen will work. Choose start windows normally. (if you get that screen)
6. Go to Control Panel -> (Mobile PC) -> Power Options -> Under Balanced choose change plan settings
7. Choose Change advanced power settings
8. Find Processor power management and change the minimum processor state from 5% to 100% for each On battery and Plugged in.
9. Click Apply then OK
10. Shut down you computer.
11. Disconnect the power cord.
12. Re-install the battery on the bottom of the laptop, plug in the power cord, and restart the computer. "

SOURCE: Toshiba satellite a105 s4004 cannot boot

if the recovery disk would not run to load the program than your hard drive is probably bad have you been into the machine and seen the hard drive have a look at the front where the wires plug in and there is a slot for jumpers to select the hard drive function make sure its set for master only. most hhard drives will not have a jumper for master setting if there is a jumper make sure its set right .

SOURCE: toshiba satellite A50 error code

try removing the memories, hard drive, optical drives and power on your computer. if the computer beeps it is an indication that your computer is working and one of the remaining part could be causing the no boot. if after removing all the parts your computer will not beep or the flashing amber light will not change it looks like you will need to replace your motherboard

SOURCE: my toshiba satellite a135-s2276 won't turn on

A coworker used to work for Toshiba and said that this is common for the Satellite A135 models and under warranty the fix was a motherboard swap for a newer/updated motherboard. Otherwise the unit is unusable.

SOURCE: Computer won't boot Windows Vista. Screen goes black with cursor arrow.

In this case you have to do the PC restore . you can do that in dell machines by shutting down the machine and when it is coming back on just HOLD DOWN THE CTRL ket and the START HITTING f11 key in this case you will lose the data which you have the on the c drive but this issue will get resolved .

Else you can try to restart in the safe mode with networking and then go to the system restore and then select the bold dates in which you have idea you system was working fine . selct the date and then do the system restore . In this case you will not lose the data but you will lose the updates which you have done after that date .

in both the cases system will work .

Hello my toshiba satellite m35-s149 dos not boot power button stays on I can hear fan and also hearr it beep. but theres nothing on screen if u can giv me some advice appreciate it thanx

If you can hear the startup music, try plugging the laptop into a regular monitor and press FN+F5 to view your operating system. This will mean that your backlight has blown and you need to replace the screen. If not, oh boy, it could mean that your motherboard may have taken a dive. Before you trash it replace the meory chips, just in case they have become defective.

EToshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD - Laptop do not finish boot on startup

Upon powering on, press the F8 button to load other options, choose safe mode only and hit enter.

If you were able boot windows under safe mode, you can try to do system restore or uninstall any program you've recently installed which cased the problem.

If you were NOT able to boot to safe mode, you need to do full system recovery and re install the OS. Insert the recovery disc and press F12 upon powering on to load boot menu then choose CD/DVD rom.

Hope this helps,
