Re: no display in the laptop

My previous laptop had a problem with the screen blacking out. It was suggested to me to press function key and F5. It worked. Sometimes it would take doing that repeatedly, but it always eventually worked.

My laptop brand toshiba Satellite L635-10U should operate in 64 bit but it is operating in 32 bit? what shall i do to change it.

Just because it can, doesn't mean that it shipped with 64-bit operating system. Machines have been able to run 64 bit for some time, but only recently did that become the norm. It will require a reinstall of your operating system. You'll need to do a full backup of your information first. You'll also have to get the 64 bit operating system, as your machine probably does not have a license for it.

Forgot my password on my toshiba satellite a65

If you are talking about the user account password ..and you forgot it , now you will need to reinstall the operation system ..cause there is no way to retrieve that password..
to do that engage the recovery partition for it ..and choose complete reinstall of operation system ..If you do not have one ..(or disk ) ..use a operation system boot-able one ..Just borrow one ..or buy ..or download an image and burn one ..and reinstall your computer and will work .
let me know if you have any questions or need guidance for that too ..Please explain all facts if you do ..

I need to reset my laptop

Hello, here are the steps to resetting your computer.

Reinstall Windows from a Disk

1 Turn on your Toshiba Satellite. Insert your recovery disk or the original Windows operating system DVD

into the Satellite's CD/DVD drive. Turn off the computer.

2 Turn on the Toshiba Satellite. In the first few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F12 key on your keyboard to access the Boot Menu. (Note: Some Toshiba models may tell you to press "C" to boot

from the CD-ROM). The screen will display boot for this boot up session only.

3 Use the arrow keys to navigate. Select the CD-ROM/DVD drive to highlight it. Press "Enter." Be aware that this setting is for this session only; it is not a permanent change.

4 Allow the computer to start up. Follow the onscreen instructions for reinstalling the operating system from the disk.

Reinstall from a Recovery Partition

1 Boot up the Toshiba Satellite. In the first few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F8 key. This will begin the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.

2 Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate the menu. Move the keys to select "Repair Your Computer." Press "Enter."

3 Select your language and keyboard; click "Next."

4 Select your Windows user name from the drop-down menu. Enter your password if required. Click "OK." This will begin the "System Recovery Options" menu.

5 Select the Toshiba Recovery Wizard and follow the onscreen instructions. The Toshiba Recovery Wizard will delete all existing data on the hard drive and reinstall Windows.

Hope this helps!

One vertical line on left side of toshiba satelite pro L450 LCD screen

Lines on the screen can be pretty much a hardware (LCD) issue. The first thing to do is to check if this vertical line is present outside of the Operating System so you need to go the BIOS screen of your L450.

How to go to BIOS? : Turn on your computer and start hitting the "del" key repeatedly until you see the BIOS screen.

From there, observe your screen and see if the vertical line is present. If it is, then you need to take your laptop to an authorized service provider (Toshiba) near you and have the LCD of your notebook replaced.

In case the line is not present in BIOS, then a display driver reinstallation using your Toshiba driver disc can resolve this problem. Ultimately, you may need to reinstall the entire Operating system if this still fails to resolve the problem.

All the best, and Thanks for using FixYa.

It depends on the operating system you have. If you have a windows cd then put it into the laptop and restart the computer. The laptop will usually ask you to press F12 to select a device to boot from, you need to select the cd / dvd drive. Once you've done this, you should see text displaying on the screen saying press any key to boot from cd... so press any key on the keyboard.
This should get you into the windows installation screen where you can follow the steps required to format and reinstall the operating system in your computer.
