Try an external monitor - if that works then your screen or cable is faulty. If not try replacing the ram - if you are using two sticks of ram try booting with each stick individually to see if one of them is faulty. If it does not show a display with known good ram of the correct type then it may be the processor that is faulty.

Coffe spill now screen on lap top not working


No magic fix here Philip. The only thing to do is immediately remove ALL power, AC adapter (Charger) and Battery, and open the laptop up, remove the CMOS Battery, (RTC Battery), and dry it out THOROUGHLY.

After you are SURE all components inside the laptop are dry, reassemble.
Install the Battery, then the AC adapter.

Plug into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the laptop on.

Go down to the heading that starts with - Satellite A10. (A10 in blue)
Drop down to the fourth line (L655), and scroll across to - M30X

Click on the file name M30X.
(The Toshiba Satellite M35X-S161 Notebook PC, is part of the Toshiba Satellite M30X series of Notebook PC's )

After you click on the file name (M30X), it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

A) Buy and wear an ESD wrist strap. Average cost is around $3 to $6.
Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

IF, the computer is still good you need to give it a fighting chance.

B) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

There are MANY screws that look VERY similar to other screws.
DO NOT mix them up.

C) Make a personal record as you disassemble.
Make notes, and drawings. (Legible)
Use a digital camera, or video camera if available. Use good lighting.

It's nice to have a personal record to refer back to, in case you are interrupted.

I was given a Toshiba Satellite. M35X-S149. Celeron M. When turned on I get a beeping noise and the screen is black it never loads up or show the Windows screen. The fan runs a couple of seconds then...


Try reseating the ram modules. If this dosn't work remove them one at a time but keep them in the same slot...do not switch slot, rebooting after each removal. If you remove one and it boots up then ram is bad for that slot. If this doesn't resolve your problem then repost with exactly how many beeps and in what sequence as they are diagbostic codes.
Good luck
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a rating of 4 and maybe a
"thanks" It will help me as well. Thank you.

Power on but no screen oor hard disk motion


Hello there:
i would suggest using a spare monitor and connect the cord that would normally go into a computer and connect it to the laptop and then plug in the power cord for the monitor and turn on the computer if this works and everything is ok then you know that the laptop screen may be faulty or there may be a loose connection somewhere ok?
best regards michael

Toshiba laptop power cable won't charge battery


I had the same problem with my HP laptop some years ago. you have a broken cable/cord and it is the part that is permanently attached with your power pack. If you look at the cord that plugs into your laptop, you can be able to see the faulty part of it. it is usually very flexible or swollen. You can either take it to an electrical technician to change that part of the cord. Your power pack is still ok, but have the technician to check it out first before you change the cord. Else, you may have to get another power pack. below is the full specification of the power pack that is recommended for your laptop.
