Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S149 Notebook

1 Answer

It boots up normally, then the screen goes black.

I have tried restarting, forced a power down and left the battery out all night last night and the problem recurred tonight. It seems like a setting (maybe one of the function-F keys?) for an external monitor or television hookup perhaps? I want to either restore to default settings or fix it however, but prefer to not wipe the hard drive ... Does anybody know have any suggestions?

If this is a Laptop, remove battery, Plug in charger to PC and then try to reboot. A bad battery will suck all the power from charger and won't allow the computer to have enough power to boot.

Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop not starting up, power light on

Keep pressed the power button of your laptop for about 30 seconds, the machine will power down.
--The above step may not be required as already so many days passed by.
Then plug it into the power adapter.
Switch the laptop on.
Boot in "safe mode" (F8 during boot).
This will fix any driver or some operating system issue during previous failed boot process.
Once it boots completely, do a normal shutdown and reboot your laptop in standard mode (no more F8 this time).
Now your laptop will be ready to use.

If you have a recovery cd, use that. Set your bios to boot from cd.

Cannot start up the laptop

Hi there.
That really quick flash of a blue screen is the blue screen of death and there is a possibility that the error could be memory related.
What you have to do is remove and clean the system memory and the slots the memory goes into.
Take out the battery and the AC power (if attached)
The memory will be located behind a panel underneath the laptop, unscrew the panel unclip the memory, clean the brass contacts and the slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place, replace the memory cover and reboot the laptop, see if it lets you into windows.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Black screen with blinking curser in left top corner

Hold the power button down and let it fully power off then boot it back up. If you get a prompt saying Windows did not shut down normally, select Last Known Good Configuration.

Power Light on but screen black

Try powering up with no battery connected. If that works then the battery may be faulty or too old.

The laptop doesn't boot up always.

I would try the following:
1. Remove the battery completely. If the computer boots properly several times in a row, then the battery may be causing the power supply to do strange things.
2. If you have experience removing laptop components, try removing the hard drive. Because you say the screen goes black (I assume the system powers off) sometimes after the HP logo, I doubt its Windows or a software issue.
3. If HP has a diagnostic CD you can boot to, try that.
4. It may be the power supply acting up. If it charges the battery, and if you can boot to Windows with the battery, try getting a new power supply.
5. Otherwise, it may be the motherboard of the laptop.
