Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237 Notebook
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.
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.
