Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237 won't Boot up after full shutdown

MyToshiba laptop has issues when booting up after it's been completely shut down. The power indicator comes on, the screen is properly backlit (brand new screen also), the HD indicator light blips and fans fire up, but you can't see anything on the screen (including not seeing the Toshiba logo).

Previously, the fix was to barely open the laptop at the front hinge (2-3 inches) just enough to slide your fingers in between the screen and keyboard to hit the power button. May have to do this 2 or 3 times max, but then it'll power up properly and then we'll just hibernate it when done.

I had to do a full shut down and battery removal in order to replace the screen last night. The screen lights up fine, backlight is good, inverter's fine, connections are secure, etc.

    A previous Windows Vista service pack update did not install fully. Backing this SP update out did not completely remove all the components of the SP update -- this is what was interfering with the boot up.

I think there is some issues with the OS because i noticed you can't shut it down properly so maybe the files needed in order to shut down had been corrupted but one more theory, the bios settings make sure that everythings configured properly there by checking the power options on the bios setup(the blue screen)so try setting it to default and change the boot priority to HDD,CDROM,FLOPPY.

The page i am viewing keeps shutting down


you will need to go to Toshiba's web site and download the recovery cd for this particular laptop and then burn the files on a cd and it will walk you through the installation process once you insert it.

Hi

I would boot into Safe Mode and run this utility to check your registry and startup.

http://www.download.com/Startup-Inspector-for-Windows/3000-2086_4-10291346.html?cdlPid=10452094

OR

You can try the original OS cd and repair the installation of the OS.

Last Resort

If that does not work then see if you can roll your computer back to a date prior to the problem starting.
