Re: toshiba doesnt start

This is a very general question, and there are many possible causes. I'm thinking it's your power supply, motherboard or RAM. Complete failure of any of these can shut your computer down permanently. Unfortunately, the only thing on a notebook that will be worth your time is the RAM. Turn your laptop over and check for the RAM, it will be under a cover somewhere, it'll be on or two circuit boards with 6-8 little black, square chips on them. Take them out. If your computer will then boot to BIOS, this is most likely your problem. If it will not, it's time to either toss your laptop or check in with a computer technician.

Black Screen with White bar is when Windows Vista loading. So it seems there is maybe problem with Windows.
When your Toshiba is starting up - try press F12 to enter Bios, to check if everything is OK.
If you have Vista on CD/DVD - you can try press "C" on keyboard when Toshiba start, to boot from CD/DVD and start to repair your OS, or reinstall it completely.
Here - you can find repair centre for Toshiba near you, so they can help you.

Hi there, Your ac adapter is damaged & that's why power does not transfer in your notebook. The capacitor of adapter is burned & that's why the noise started. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Toshiba satellite A60 no boot

We can only assume that because the cd drive operates then the motherboard is operating in part, although, the southbridge chip may be damaged, as the northbridge works memory etc. Maybe it is that the processor is fried as there is no fan and the system then shuts down. Toshiba are probably half way there with the answer, unless; they investigated further and decided it was not the processor but the motherboard.

Toshiba Satellite A60 wont post

It may be possible to startup in safe mode(press F8 on boot up) and highlight 'Last Known Good Configuration' or highlight 'Start Windows in Safe Mode. If this gets you up try a system restore to before you updated driver or look for the system recovery folder, normally on another partition of your hard drive, that is if you didn't get a recovery cd. If you are not able to get up and running you will need your Windows Installation Disc to either repair the system or do a complete re installation by putting in cd whilst you boot up. It may also be that your HDD is damaged and thats why you can hear the cd drive powering up, looking for a system disc, as it cannot find Windows.
