My toshiba satellite laptop wont reboot. i try holding down the 0 button while turning it on and waiting for the noise, but nothing happens after that. PLEASE help me


Does it get to POST? (that is the BIOS menu).
If it does immediately press F8 that should get you into the recovery menu.
If it doesn't,

Try firstly removing the laptop's battery as it may be at a critical voltage and the system will not start because of it. Plug in your ac adaptor and monitor what happens. Does the power light illuminate? If it does it should then boot up, if it doesn't, try a known good ac adaptor before going any further.
If the adaptor is fine and the laptop still won't start, then you may have a mother board fault and should contact a dealer/repairer for further advice.
Hope this helps.

I have an hp a705w it wont turn on the light blinks


The Power Supply Might Have Gone Bad, or the motherboard could have loose connectors on it/be worn out. If It Is Still Under Warranty Have It Diagnosed. Does It Beep At All?

Boot Problems


Hi,

PXE means it will only boot while connected to the network,

You need to change the bois From network boot to Hard drive boot.

The system doesn't see a hard drive inside,

it thinks it is booting from the network only,

it boots to a server like this.

It is called a dumb terminal

Computer wont start up. Blinking green light in the back of tower


I've had that happen twice to my Vaio desktop and there was a very easy fix. I'm not a techie, but I found a recommended solution online when this first happened six months ago. I couldn't find the solution again, but I fortunately remembered the steps.

Remove the side pane to access your motherboard cables, etc. Locate the connector on your motherboard that contains the wires going from your power supply to your motherboard. It will be a large, rectangular connector with a lot of individual wires It is not a ribbon cable but should be located next to a ribbon cable connector andnext to a geen blnking light on your motherboard (when the power supply is plugged into the wall). Note: This green blinking light is in addition to the green blinking light on the back of the PC.

This next step is important: You have to disconnect the connector noted above from the motherboard WHILE the power suply is plugged into the wall. Wait a few seconds and plug it back in. The blinking reen light on the motherboard should now be a solid green light. The PC should now power up.

It worked twice for me; I hope it works for you.

I JUST purchased a laptop (toshiba sattelite L300D) I put the battery in, I pluged the AC...and I start it up for its first time....but nothing appears on the screen.....not even a bios or whatever...the...


I would not even touch it, if you JUST purchased it take it right back.......if your having problems with it straight out of the box its prob. not a good sign........

If you dont want to take it back , take out the battery and put it back in...plug it in and start it up again....take notice if there are any power lights on the laptop that turn on , or if there is no response from the laptop at all.....

If there are no lights it may be a problem with the ac adaptor or the power supply inside the computer.....

If there are lights and nothing on the screen then the LCD is faulty.

Toshiba satellite pro a200 The laptop has stop recharging, i don't know if its the battery or the adapter or the actual laptop with the problem? please help!!!


First do not remove battery and use charger only. Lets start at the beginning first if you are using a UK three point plug check the fuse in the plug. Next some adaptors have a small green light on when connected to the mains. Another way to check the adaptor is, if you no someone with a multi meter (used to check voltages etc) get them to check if there is a reading from the end you plug into the computer should read 19volt. That would check your charging adaptor. Battery well if adaptor is charging then it is almost likely to be your battery.
If you have to replace the battery take it with you when you go for the replacement and ask them to check it in another laptop if they wont do this go elsewhere.
By what you say you have a fault with the adaptor.
Good luck

Ok, i dont know much about computer, but i found my uncles laptop after he passed away. it says its an acer travelmate 290e series with windows XP home edition. when i plus it in a bunch of lights blink,...


Hi
If it's plugged in a light should come on to show that it's charging. Next you need to press the on button on the laptop and it should then turn on.

If it makes a sound when you turn it on (i.e. starts humming) but the screen stays black then it may be that the screen is switched off.

I think the best thing may be for you to refer to this guide as it will help you get started with the laptop but if you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask!

Hope this is helpful
