Re: Toshiba Satelitte Lap Top

Hi, Below is a copy of my posting for a similar problem. ...Try re-seating your memories. They may be located at the bottom of your laptop covered by a lid or panel held by a screw or 2. Once the memories are exposed, move the retaining clips slightly away from the memories moving sideways. The memory will slightly pop out and you can proceed to remove them. Use a pencil eraser to rub/clean on the little gold contact strips. Re-insert and lock in place. In some models the memories are underneath the keyboard. If this does not solve your problem, your next best move perhaps is to seek professional qualified services to diagnose/repair you laptop. In some instances, the repair could include video card or even memory replacement. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things went or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

My problem started out pretty confusing. One day I turned my lap top on and the screen, after about five to ten seconds of being on, went black. I could see things loading up sort of but the screen was too...

Darkened screen as you describe indicates a failing inverter. You can test this easily by plugging the laptop into an external monitor, if this works ok, then the inverter needs replaced, If it does not work, the problem is with the graphics chip / motherboard

mcdevito75 here, You can try to presss the shift key, also try to put your lap top on, with either AC wall power or battery. If this doesn"t work bring the lap top to a local Radio Shack, or Staples for help.
