Help my laptop isn't working

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Wont boot past toshiba logo

Unplug the AC adaptor, remove the battery, then press and hold the power button down for a minimum of 30 seconds. Now replace the battery and see if it powers up. If not repreat the process but this time leave the battery out and only plug in the AC. If it still doesn't power on repeat the process again and this time replace the battery and plug the AC back in. If it still doesn't power up it's time to start checking the hardware. Remove the ram and try it with only one stick. You might need to try each one individually to see if either works. If that doesn't help remove the hard drive and see if it will post to the Toshiba screen. If that doesn't help you'll probably need to take it to a service center.

Your hard drive might be bad - go to the setup or BIOS and check if it's detected. If it's not listed then check your hard drive - re-seat and reboot the computer.

My Toshiba Satellite 4010CDS Laptop never gets past boot. When I turn it on it goes to the Toshiba splash screen and never goes past that. The hard drive makes a lot of noise when I turn it on also. Thank...

What OS are you running?
Did you recently install a new app?
Did you recently install a new hard drive?

Try and do a system restore boot the computer in safe mode with networking to do this you:

  1. Turn on laptop
  2. While booting up press and hold F8
  3. Until you are brought to a boot up option page with different ways of booting up
  4. Click safe mode with networking
  5. When you do this computer will load and click system restore
  6. Restore computer to a previous date when it was working

Scratching sounds coming from laptop

There is lint or small scrap of paper rubbing on the cooler fan.

Without disassembly, Blow compressed air into the exhaust port while power is off, this might dislodge the debris.

Otherwise you have to remove outer cover and clean out that way.

Replaced hard drive now computer wont boot

If you have a restore CD/DVD that came with your Toshiba, you may have to use it to reformat your hard drive and do a fresh installation. You may have a bad sector or cluster and the boot file is located on it. Try this and check the bios for the setting of your hard disk too. Try starting the system on safe mode by pressing F8 at boot time.

Toshiba L300D-18E... won't load up past splash screen

Less than four months old (still in warranty), just back from hard drive replacement (recent service issue). Take/send it back as this is a warranty issue.

My Toshiba Satelite A105-S4211 wont log in

I recently ran into a computer doing this.

Try what jmagnu said, hopefully it will work for you (safe mode didn't help me).

I basically had to remove the hard drive from the computer, install it into another computer and run a ton of virus, malware, spyware scans on the drive.

I used a combination of AVG, superantispyware, malwarebyte's malware remover, hijackthis, ccleaner, and a few others who's names escape me.

Best of luck :)

Laptop monitor goes black

If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website ( & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

I hope this helps.
