Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
When I turn on the notebook .there is nothing show on the screen
When you turn it on, do you hear any activity? Motors start working,
fan spinning, etc…? Try to connect an external monitor and start the laptop.
Check if you can get any video on the external monitor. If the external
monitor is dead too, try to remove the battery and start the laptop
from the AC adapter. It also might be a bad memory module or a bad
connection between the memory and the motherboard. Try to reseat the memory module,
move it to the second slot. If you have two memory modules, try to
remove them one by one and turn on the laptop. Also, try to remove the
hard drive and see if you can boot it to Toshiba screen without the
hard drive installed.
There is no special button to reseat the BIOS settings. To do it, you’ll have to access the BIOS using F2 button on the laptop start up, but as you have no video, you cannot access the BIOS and set it to defaults.
I think this laptop is still under Toshiba warranty, so if you cannot figure out what’s wrong, call them and let them fix it.
