SOURCE: my toshiba satellite l505d-s5986 has black screen and won't boot but fan is working

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.

SOURCE: where is located my toshiba satellite l505d-s5986 hard drive indicator light

The indicator lights for the Toshiba Satellite L500 series are the five lights in front, beneath the mousepad and to the right of the SD card slot. Starting from the left: the first one represents AC power, it lights when the computer is plugged in. The second is the computer power, it lights when the computer is on. The third light represents battery, indicating the charge on it. The fourth one is the one you are asking about, the hard drive indicator light. This blinks when hard drive activity is going on, when the computer is accessing data on the hard drive. So it should blink quite rapidly whenever you start up your computer. If the indicator light does not light whatsoever, it indicates that the computer is not getting any data from the hard drive and it's likely that your hard drive has failed. Check to see if the hard drive makes any clicking noises when you turn the computer on. If not, then the drive probably had died, and the only option may be to replace the hard drive. Hopefully, you have maintained backups of your data.
And in case you were wondering, the last indicator light is for the SD card. It blinks when the computer is retrieving data from an SD card.

Black screen even on ext monitor


External monitor confirmation means that you're not getting anything out. If there truly are not words coming up, telling you what's up, then you're probably looking at a bad logic board. It could be bad video, but if nothing, not even a fan, is spinning up, then you're not getting power across the system. Check all your power connections and inputs, but I'm leaning towards a bad system board.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop the screen is black


Shutting the computer down could be done by holding the Power Switch down for 10 seconds, rather than unplug/no battery "solution". A blank screen is more often than not caused by the failure of the screen's backlight. Plugging an external monitor in the ext monitor port would verify the computer still works, and I am sure it does.

PROBLEM WITH MY SATELLITE M35X-S111


Check to see if your Display is bad or Video is bad..
To Do This....
Plug an External Monitor into the laptop serial port..Boot the laptop and use the function key plus F5 to boot to external screen... If you see your PC running on the external screen it is a Video card/chip problem.....

Do your lights run ..the Power Light/Battery light/ hard drive light??? Do you hear the hard drive spinning??
