Well, if you have no Installation disc, or no cd/dvd rom in this specific model, you should have a recovery partition.
To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold
down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero
key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the
zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo
disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split
second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard
Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory
default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data
If this procedure doesn't work, you don't have a recovery partition set up, hence, you will need the installation disc.
try to turn off you screen saver just turn off power monitor to see monitor easy wake up after long time.if ok means windows screen saver have problem if still same look like is you monitor something wrong need to check
If this happens consistently, there is probably a Blue Screen occurring that is too fast for your eye to see.
Immediately after the Toshiba splash goes away, start pressing F8 until the startup options menu shows. Choose Disable automatic restart on system failure. This should allow you to see the error. then re-post with all details including the error code numbers. Then you can get help for the underlying problem.
To resolve the problem,do the following step,
1. Power on the system
2. At dell logo screen before windows xp starts to load tap on the F8 key slowly 5 to 8 times
3. Select safe mode
4 Hit enter on the next screen and logon using the administrator or your name
5. Do the system restore, when you have logged on, this would return your system back to the date when it was working fine
6. To system restore
click start>all programs>accessories>system tools >system restore
Try going to Start - Run. Type sfc /scannow in the run line and hit enter or click ok. A dialog will pop up that says "Windows File Protection" Allow this to run and insert the Win XP CD if requested. Hopefully this will resolve your issue!
Have you increased the brightness? If memory serves on the Toshiba you should have a "FN" key and on either on of the number keys or the F-keys there should be a little icon that looks like a "sun" and an arrow up, there should also be similar with arrow point down.
Hold down the FN key and at the same time press the sun up arrow key, and it should increase brightness.
Also some laptops have power saving settings where the brightness is turned down to prolong battery life, so check the power saver settings from the control panel.
