Question about Toshiba Satellite U405D-S2848 Notebook

My computer will not restart

When I go to restart my computer it will not restart all the way, it will go to a blank screen but then the D drive flashes and makes a noise and stays that way until I manually power off the computer. There are no CD's in the D drive and I can power down my computer with no problem.

In acer laptop i am getting blue screen error code is 0000000007


Try to restart the computer in Last known good configuration from the Advance boot options by restarting the computer using F8 key continuously.
If doesn't work then put in the Windows CD.
If Windows XP :
Restart the computer and keep tapping F12.
From boot menu highlight CD/DVD or IDE CD ROM or USB CD ROM.
Keep on pressing enter on it until get the screen loading files.
Then on the first Welcome page press "R"
If you have a dual-boot or multiboot system, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
Enter the Admin password if dont have any password then leave blank and press enter.
Then type the command chkdsk drive /p /r
(drive is the partition on which windows is installed, C: or D:)
It will take around 30 to 45 mins to complete then restart the computer.

Its blinking and the screen is black whats wrong?


First, ensure that there is no CD disk in the CD-drive. Remove it.
Disconnect any USB memory-sticks.
Try to restart.

Second, the computer tried to read the Windows software from the disk-drive, but has FAILED,
either because the disk-drive is totally "dead", or because there were some errors reading part of the Windows software from the disk-drive.

Take your computer to a computer-store, for professional diagnosis and repair.

Blank screen


Look very closely at the screen when its on, see if you can see a faint image in which case the ccfl tube in the screen will be dead. Also try the laptop on an external monitor.
Otherwise if you know what your doing, remove the battery, hard drive, optical drive, all but one stick of ram, modem/wireless card and try again. There is a small chance it will be the cpu or motherboard.
