Question about Toshiba Tecra A5 Notebook

Screen blank off after xp logo on startup

I have a Toshiba Tecra A5 notebook. The notebook failed to boot up as I saw "blank" on the monitor. On starting several times I discovered that the system actually is fine except does not display. Sometimes I can reach as far as entering password. The monitro just "blank-off". I connect another monitro at teh VGA output but it is the same. I suspected the problem is at VGA card (if there is any). Please advise.

    Adding a monitor to the vga port is of no help. It also give the same symptom as the laptop screen

It sounds like it is possible that your lcd backlight has died. it's not that easy to fix yourself. i would recommend bringing it somewhere to see how much it would cost to get it fixed, it will not cost as much as a new laptop. or you can just continue to use it through it's vga port but now it is no longer a laptop but a desktop.

Toshiba tecra M3 wont start. Upon startup it shows a black screen and says problem loading operating system


download form bootdisk.com "XP Boot" and burn to cd in an .iso (bootable) format.

boot from the cdrom (you may have to go into BIOS and look for a "boot priority" option to allow you to boot from cd, to acess BIOS, hit "escape" and then either "F1" or "F2" as soon as you turn it on). run fdisk /mbr from the XP Boot cd. with this tool, try to repair the mbr. if that does not work, you need to use this tool to erase the mbr and reinstall windows.

Need to reinstall my machine but don't have product key for laptop toshiba tecra A5


The product key should be on the bottom of your laptop.

For most Toshiba laptops tapping on the "zero" (0) at the toshiba splash screen on start up will start the "factory restore" process.

This process will not work if you have replaced or reformatted your hard drive.
