Open Question

White screen on Toshiba Model PSLB8U won't go away.

I have a Toshiba Model PSLB8U and it comes up with a white screen. Turning off the computer, starting in "safe" mode, pressing function F5 and removing/reinstalling the battery do not help. Did mistakingly start the computer with a memory chip from a digital camera inserted in the memory slot, which could have precipitated the problem, but still won't work after removing the chip.

    If you get just white glow from the screen without any graphic at all, you need to check the ribbon cable attached to the LCD panel. Try using external monitor also. www.insidemylaptop.com

Sounds like your refresh rate is incorrect

Boot into safe mode. Go to Start > Control Panel > Under Appearance and Personalization , select Adjust screen resolution ,
Selct your laptops display , set the resolution to 1024x768 , click on advanced settings then click the monitor tab at the top.
In the box below , select Use hardware default setting .

Hit ok.

If that doesnt fix it something is wrong with the drivers.

Start in safe mode with networking and get the drivers from here and install them.

Since it is a Toshiba Tecra if you are not worried about losing data on the laptop you can try turning on the laptop and start pressing the zero key. It should give you the option to restore your laptop if you haven't deleted the restore partition on the laptop.

What is the model number of the dvd/writer in the Toshiba PSLB8U?

Well; there is no real answer to this as computer manufacturers receive a variety of parts. The easiest way is to remove the DVD drive; you can find videos on how to remove it on You Tube. Your drive may be a different manufacturer or version if compared with another Toshiba PSLB8U.

White screen after turning on laptop, have to reboot

It's sounds like the lcd is going out.

But it could also be GPU related.

Try updating the motherboard firrmware / bios

Updating the Video Drivers. If that produces the same results then more than likely the lcd will have to be replaced.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

I need sound drivers for my Toshiba laptop Satellite L300 PSLB8U

I think you gave us the wrong model number, there are too many letters/numbers in the second series. I am going to guess this is the one you have Toshiba Laptop Satellite L300 - ST2105. Even if this isnt the right model number, the sound drivers will work on more than one model.
