Toshiba Equium A300D - 13X laptop black screen.

I have a Toshiba Equium A300D - 13X laptop which I purchased in November 2008 as new. My problem is that when I switch it on I have a black screen but I can see that its working only in certain light. Its almost as if the brightness has been turned right down. Ive tried Fn + F5 and also tried to increase the brightness but to no avail. What is the problem, how do I rectify it and what part do I need. Many thanks.

Hi. try accessing the Start-up BIOS features by pressing F2 or Delete key when you see the Toshiba logo. Check for the Tab that will give you the control for the brightness/contrast of the screen. If that doesn't do anything then most probably the backlight (LED or CFL) must have been busted. and needs replacement.

I have a toshiba equium a300d that wont read disk


The lens in the DVD drive maybe dirty, gently clean the lens with a soft cloth.
If this does not fix the problem then the drive maybe faulty and needs to be replaced.

I have tried to access both excel and work on my computer but unfortunately it keeps asking for a product key before it will allow me to enter. I have entered the product key no. on the base of my laptop...


Hi Loreen, The product key on the bottom of your laptop is for Windows, not for Microsoft Office. You need to ask the person who programmed it for the product key. If you purchased the computer from a reputable company, they should have sent the Microsoft Office CD with your computer. Printed on the back of the envelope is the product key.
Hope this helps!

My Equium A200-1V0 fan stopped working


Hi, just thought I'd let you know that when I got my Toshiba Equium 200-1V0 it was supplied with the User's Manual A210 Series. The manual is just basic and does not go into full depth of how to clean out heat sink etc. The problem you described regarding the shutting down is most probably that the heat sink is clogged up with dust and needs to be cleaned. Toshiba has a lot of laptops (different models) with this problem. I had the same problem with Toshiba A200-1V0 and have now got the same problem with the Toshiba A300D-20R which is only 6 months old! On the A200-1V0 I managed to hoover the bottom of the laptop where the fan is and it worked fine, but with the A300D-20R it has not worked, but fortunately it's still under guarantee so I will be sending it back to Toshiba to do it. Here is a link to download the Manuals. You will find the Manual for A200-1V0. Hope this helps. http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_manuals.jsp?service=UK

No battery detected reading on my toshiba laptop


If the laptop was purchased new in November, 2008, the laptop is still under warranty. So, contact Toshiba for repair or replacement.

If not purchased new in November, the battery would probably need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
