My toshiba laptop will now only turn on to a black screen and a white flashing cursor. I cannot put it in safemode. I cannot put it in boot menu. It goes straight to black screen with white cursor.


it sounds as though its not seeing the hard drive. Power up and press delete to get into the bios. The hard drive should be seen in the first or second screen. If its not there then you will need a new one and a new installation of windows.

When I turn my comp on, I get the Dell screen, then a black screen with a flashin cursor. When pressing f8 for safe-mode, nothing happens. Just a black screen with flashing cursor. Please help


Unplug all external USB devices to your computer and power it back up again.

If you can start the computer, then you probably have a faulty USB device connected to your computer.

Have a Toshiba Qosmio F45-AV411 and downloaded windows 7 last night. worked fine then I put comp in to sleep mode when I tried to turn on today looks like it is booting up and then goes to a black screen...


Try to boot up the computer using safe mode first. Keep on tapping the F8 key the moment you turn on the computer. If your computer wont boot to safe mode then you need to re-install windows 7.

Laptop's light is turning off!


This is going to be a problem with either the screen inverter, or the screen backlight. I would recommend have it diagnosed first to see which it is. You can test this yourself if you have an ohm meter, and a little technical know how.You will need to pull the screen bezel (the plastic piece around the front of the screen), the are screws hidden under the small round plastic sticky tabs on the bezel. Once you've removed the screws the bezel will snap off. Get it started at one side and work it up the rest of the way around, be careful not to break it ar the corners when lifting it off. Once the bezel is off you will see the inverter at the base of the screen. Power down the machine and disconnect the lead that goes to the screen. The power going into the inverter is very low, the inverter boosts the power back up to what the screen needs to work, so the power on the screen end will be significantly higher than the motherboard end. The voltage range differs machine to machine, so I can't tell you what it should be exactly, only that if it's the same or slightly higher from end to end, then it's bad. Now, inverters can be changed out, but backlight are part of the screen and cannot be change out. If it's a bad backlight, then the entire screen will need replaced.
