    Try reseating the hard drive.

    See if you can get into the BIOS by pressing F2 when you first turn on your laptop. If you can get into the BIOS, see if it is recognzing the hard drive.

First thing you're gonna want to try is reseating the memory.

Second, see if you can get into the bios by pressing F2, F10, DEL key it depends see if you see something on the screen, sometimes pressing ESC does it. It all depends.

Try that first and let me know what happens.

    OK, the next thing I would try is removing the battery, power adapter and then removing the cmos battery for 5 minutes.

    Sorry I don't have a take apart guide, I've NEVER used one. I just always jump right in and remove screws ;)

    You could post another request, someone here might have access to a service manual.

    This method has worked MANY times for me when I face problems like this.

    Best of luck!

When connected to ac adaptor it will turn on and toshiba leading innovation appear, but after that no program will displayed, but when i disconnected to the ac adaptor the programs runs normally. the


This is strange.
I think your ac adapter power cord is bad. Get another one from ebay at: http://www.ebay.com

Just put in your computer's make and model, not the model of the battery in the ebay search.

For example: Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 AC Adapter

It might be your lcd screen's inverter, but it's strange. Anyway test the inverter by plugging in the ac adapter and when the screen goes blank try the steps below.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

My Laptop wont start properly. It just starts, shows Toshiba The leading Innovation message and goes off. I then get a blank screen with a cursor at the top left hand corner. Power cable is working,...


This could be a failed hard drive. As soon as you turn on the computer, go into BIOS (I think you hit the F2 key on Toshiba systems) and check the list of IDE or SATA devices. If you do not see a hard drive model number there, that is your problem.

If you do see a hard drive, you may be able to get it to work with a System Recovery CD. It may have been corrupted by a virus or power failure during a write operation.
