Re: does not turn on

U have to try to format it..

Reason is u are infected and if u format it the virus will not remove it will be in SYSTEM BACK UP MEMORY and when u format automaticlly on WELCOMEN SCREEN u are infected..The best for u is if u put ur hdd in another laptop as external and format it with CMD.When u are done put it back to ur pc and format it with original winxp!!!

If u still have a problem just contact me!!!

I've heard a lot about freezing problems on toshiba as well as others like this. Most common issues are one of two things. One is a damaged RAM module. The second is one of the video card chip sets have fried or are slightly overheating causing the laptop to shut down. Most common with Nvidea and ATI Radeon series graphics cards.

it could have failed,but its more likely you have sequential procedures for the power button,like holding it down for more than 5 seconds etc--you might have just put your machine into "standby mode"--check manufacturers site for power key process--good luck!

My laptop won't start... please

Not sure but it sounds like the hard drive is causing the problem. Lap tops are set up so that any problems with them they shut down, and a bad hard drive will shut you down the way you are describing. The only test i know for this is to remove the hard drive and see if you can get the computer to at least boot. If you can with no hard drive then it usually means the drive has failed. Not sure if this will help, but hope it helps.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop the screen is black

Shutting the computer down could be done by holding the Power Switch down for 10 seconds, rather than unplug/no battery "solution". A blank screen is more often than not caused by the failure of the screen's backlight. Plugging an external monitor in the ext monitor port would verify the computer still works, and I am sure it does.

Toshiba Satellite: A135-S4427 / Won't shut down

by pressing the power button in, the computer has gone into standby or hibernate mode.
Heres what you Do:- press and hold the power button for between 10 to 20 seconds.
that should bring it out of hibernation.
if that does,nt work. remove the main battery.
when you,ve resolved the problem, run a disk-scan via your windows operating system.
