First thing I would start with is shutting the laptop down, removing the AC adapter and battery, then holding the power button down for about 15-20 seconds. Once that's done, plug the battery and AC adapter back in and try again.

Another way to test, is if you have an external monitor that you can plug into the VGA port on your laptop, see if video appears that way when you turn the laptop on. If you see video, then the problem may be either with the LCD panel, or the cabling from the lcd panel to the motherboard.

If that doesn't work, once more, shut the laptop off, unplug the power and battery, and proceed to remove all the RAM modules. (If you're unfamiliar, please seek assistance from a service technician at an authorized repair center). With the RAM removed, plug only the AC power in and turn it back on. This should bring up two scenarios:

1. If the laptop turns on and begins emitting a series of beeps, then one of your sticks of RAM may be faulty, in which case you'll have to try testing them one at a time to find out which one is faulty. Turn the laptop off, unplug it, plug one of the sticks in, plug it back into power and try again. If it works, then you know the other stick of RAM is probably faulty. If it doesn't, repeat this step with the other stick of RAM. If it works, then the first stick is faulty, if it doesn't, then either both sticks are faulty, or there may be a RAM bank defect, in which case you'll have to get your motherboard replaced.

2. If, by removing the RAM modules, you turn it back on, and still nothing happens on the screen and you don't hear the beeps as mentioned in scenario 1, then you more than likely have a faulty motherboard, which would need to be replaced.

The final word on this situation, is, whatever hardware component is faulty, check with either Toshiba directly (1-800-Toshiba), or through your place of purchase, to see if you are still covered under warranty. If you are, then great, you can get it repaired without spending any money. If you are out of warranty, then there's a few options. RAM modules are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. LCD Panels and motherboards are a different story though. The panels will run you about $150-300 USD for parts, motherboards anywhere from $300-500 USD for parts. Labour, if you have a service technician do it for you, will cost extra. IN which case, it may be time to scrap it for parts, or retire it entirely and look into getting a new one.

I re-started my toshiba A135 laptop, and the screen went black


There are dozens of possible root causes for your problem I guess.

But exactly the same happened to me in fact on a packard bell laptop. After my son forced it to reset, it didn't start again. Only one led was lit. After a long search I found that the battery had died and this prevented the laptop to start even when the power supply was plugged in.

Try this: remove the battery, connect it to the power supply and restart.

Hope that helps

Toshibba laptop a135-s2276 ,my mother bords smd chip does not work so display of screen does not appear


The problem is well known witht this model Toshiba - the problem is the fan stops working and then hence shuts down to prevent overheating - it does not take long once the laptop is hot. Without replacing the fan just reboot the laptop until you hear the fan start again on reboot.

My toshiba satellite a135-s2276 won't turn on


A coworker used to work for Toshiba and said that this is common for the Satellite A135 models and under warranty the fix was a motherboard swap for a newer/updated motherboard. Otherwise the unit is unusable.
