Re: no boot, screen blank after hibernation

Sounds like a memory issue for sure! but I also know that when you put a laptop into hibernation mode it uses about 400MB space for special quick start up access. I think that you may want to try to repair your installation of Windows, you would havw to put your restore disk in and instead of re-installing the OS just repair it...

Re: no boot, screen blank after hibernation

NTLDR is missing Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette is in.

Getting into Windows Safe Mode Users who may not be able to boot into normal mode or are not able to .... This is the most basic Safe Mode option and has no additional support.

Good Luck, Please dont for get to Vote/Thank You.

Failure to bootup

This message means that the computer could not find the MBR (master boot record) & the most likely cause is a hard disk failure. To prove this obtain an installation disk of an operationg system, say Windows XP, place the disk in the drive, and while its booting up, press F2. From the menu set the boot order to... 1. CD rom drive. Save and exit. The machine will now begin to install the operating system to your hard drive. If you get the same message again, you have a hard drive failure and it will have to be rep-laced.

Blank screen

Turn Hibernate off for one thing. Hibernation leads to registry problems and boot issues. Go to control panel > power options > hibernate tab > uncheck the box. Reboot the machine. If you want, the laptop will go into standby mode after a period of time and will wake up with a touch on the touchpad. Go back to power options and there are settings in there that you can tailor to your liking.

Hibernating problem (Windows Vista)


There are two ways to enable hibernation on a laptop. When you bootup your laptop, there is a text hint for access to your laptop's setup. It is Del, F2 or F10 most commonly. Look for that hint and enter hte bios setup for your laptop. Once inside the setup, look on all the pages to find the power options for running on Adapter Power and Battery Power. In this area will be an option for the default action when your lid closes. The safest is turn off, but more commonly you will want to user Hibernate. You can set this for the action on batteries and on adapter if you want.

As you may know, hibernation requires and creates a rather large file on your C: drive that contains all the information Vista needs to reload your computer to the exact state it was in at the time you placed the computer into Hibernation.

Also, in Windows also, you can enable hibernation and set its terms. Right click a blank area of your desktop, select Properties. You will see the well known Screen Saver and Desktop Background choices interface. When you click on Screen Saver you'll notice at the bottom right a button titled Power, click on that. On the subsequent page look for and check off the box titled 'enable hibernation'. You will also see the various timeouts for Standby, Sleep and Hibernate now. You will also see options for actions such as closing the lid. You want to be certain that the actions in Windows for the Lid Closure matches the actions you set in the System Setup at boot time.

Screen on Toshiba M35x S149 Laptop blank/flickers

Ok, from the beginning. Can you do a cold boot and get into the bios? (is there an image on the screen then)
Secondly, can you connect to an external monitor and see an image?
Did it do this only when it was heading in to hibernation? If so, it sounds like the power management needs some adjustment.
If there's no image on the external monitor, you may have a video/motherboard problem, or it still could be the operating system/power management.
It all depends on if you have video in bios.
Let me know.
Good luck
