I am having the same problem, and I'm still looking for a permanent solution, but...... as a temporary fix, I had to boot in safe mode then disable the nVidia display device from the device manager. I can now use the computer as normal, but I have bad resolution and can't use the svideo out. I'm hoping there isn't a hardware problem.

We have a Toshiba Satellite lap top. It was working about an hour ago, when we down loaded a BIOS upgrade from 1.4 to 1.5. After the down load and reboot the lap top now has a black screen with no wording....

BIOS updates sometimes cause the motherboard to revert to its default configuration. I recommend that you go into the BIOS setup and examine the Boot Devices and Boot Order to make sure that your hard drive is selected as the first boot device.

Good luck!

My laptop won't start... please

Not sure but it sounds like the hard drive is causing the problem. Lap tops are set up so that any problems with them they shut down, and a bad hard drive will shut you down the way you are describing. The only test i know for this is to remove the hard drive and see if you can get the computer to at least boot. If you can with no hard drive then it usually means the drive has failed. Not sure if this will help, but hope it helps.

Satellite M45-S351 locks up won't shut down. First thing, may lap top would not shut down so we had to use the power button, then after some time 2-3 the unit decided not to boot up. we copyed the hard...

I think it is a prob with the mother need t change RAM or hard drive........they dont cause this type of prob. Ur mother board is not accepting the shutdown command.
Try the following command in command prompt:

shutdown /s /f

My lap top says that my hard drive is going to fail

You should back up your files regularly and be prepared to purchase a new hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive etc. when the hard drive eventually fails.

New 100gb MK1031GAS hdd not recognized in bios

you fit a new hard drove and it is a blank page
of course the bios will not recognize it
you have to get into bios and change the boot sequence from hard drive to cd as first boot preference
shut down the lap top, after loading the cd in the cd unit then restart
the bios will boot from the cd and install the operating system onto the hard drive
When done ypu can get back into bios and reset it to first boot from hard drive

My screen shuts down

If your os is Vista try this.Use your vista restore disk.Put it in your cd-dvd player and run it .When it ask you what do you want it to do select start up repair.Repair will run,then your system will reboot.If this doesn't work i would check your lcd inverter or lcd panel.

Lap top wont boot up past the windows screen

This generally indicates that a sector in the hard drive has failed, and the hard drive will need to be replaced. With a bad sector the drive reads to the point of the bad sector and past the bad sector, but can't put the info together, so it tries to boot, but can't. Unfortunately, your only option is replacing the hard drive.
