Re: boot failure

Does it beep at all?
take it into a dark room, can you see anything on the screen, even if it's very faint?
take battery off and plug in same thing?

My granddaughter pushed the F2 button while the start screen was on. how do i get out of this i keeps saying media test failure exiting PXE ROM

The F2 function on this laptop merely cycles the power plans (see link below)

The symptom you describe is that of the OS or a boot device not being recognised. Try removing any USB dongles from the laptop if any are plugged in, eject any CDs in the tray and retry

If this does not work, as the laptop starts up, press the ( I think) F1 key and enter the Bios, see if in the BOOT screen, the hard drive and CDRom are shown. Repost your findings for more guidance

My Toshiba Satellite pro s300 ez2501 , is being stuck and fan should run fastly with rough sound, we cant do any thing at this time, only function key can work but nothing will happened.

This is an open ended question as I am not aware of your problem, however,
Disconnect your power supply and remove the battery.
Refit the battery and plug in the AC adaptor, check the power light and battery light are illuminated.
Keep disconnect any periferals, (USB devices) and ensure the DVD drawer is empty. Press the power button. The POST should now start up flashing a line of led's across the top of the keyboard first followed by the hard drive light.
The BIOS F2 or F12 choice screen will now appear. If it doesn't the laptop hasn't completed POST and can go no further however, if it gets that far;
Press F12 and select Hard Drive for the boot device, the laptop will then try and boot from the hard drive, just as the boot chioce menu dissapears press F8, this will opem a further menu allowing you to repair your system. This, if selected, will collect data stored on drive E and repair the main system putting the OS back as it was when you first purchased the machine.
If that won't work or there is a corrupt file or serious error, you will require an OS system disk.
Place the System disk in the DVD drive, press power until the system tries to boot and when you get to the boot selection menu, press F12 again but select CD/DVD as the boot drive.
Follow my last instructions again and you will have a fresh/repaired system and a working laptop again.
When all is OK go to and let toshiba download and install the latest drivers and BIOS.
Hope that helps.

Toshiba S200 not starting.power LED blinking with beep sound

Please try to take out the battery and power on using the ac adapter alone. If it works, it is okay to put the battery back in. Leave battery in for a few minutes then try to restart using the battery alone. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Toshiba satellite pro l40 boot up problem

If you run a repair with the recovery disc you won't lose any info. The only time you'll lose the info is if you run a complete reload. Run the system disc until it gets to the point of finding installed operating systems, at this point instead of deleting the partition, press R and it will reinstall the operating system files only leaving other installed files and programs intact. Keep in mind that many times when this happens, it's a hard drive failure. If it is a hard drive failure, then you will have to replace the hard drive and you will lose the info, sorry.
