2 Answers

My Question is relatedto an old Toshiba-Satellit pro 470CDT laptop. The laptop doesn't boot-up. Power and Batery lights are on and green; Switching on appears to happen with HD light on for a few

Laptop Screen or external screen is dead. Switching on is not always successful, bu if successfull, seems to be for a few seconds only (green light of HD lights-up a few seconds). HD seems to kick-in, but kind of stops, however something is still running (very quietly). Fan is not running. CD drives works. When closing with window disk, disk start running, but nothing happens.

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Press F8 and choose command prompt.You may have to use a boot disc if you can't get c prompt.
Type cmd ENTER. From the Command Prompt type chkdsk /r/f ENTER. R and F are redundant for repair and fix, but does not hurt.

My notebook display not come


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

My toshiba satellite pro 6100 will not turn on. The battery light and power light turns green but it will not turn on.


The problem could be your display. Use the VGA port on the side of your laptop to connect it to a computer monitor, this will let you know if your system is posting or not. (If you see the Boot Screen it is posting).

HOW DO I GET IN TO THE BIOS ON MY TOSHIBA SATELLITE PRO 470CDT, I NEED TO RECONFIGURE THE BOOT ORDER SO I CAN REINSTALL THE WINDOWS OS FROM CD.


There are usaually a standard to getting into BIOS at boot up. Sometimes you have to be quick.
Tha most common keys to press are as follows

1. F1
2. F2
3. F10
4. F12
5. Del

Try those. not all together try a different one on each boot. you must do it during post, and if echo is turned off it is just a timing issue. It must be pressed before O.S. post screen, ie. " Windows" shows on screen.

Let us know if this helped you.

Thank you
