Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2386 Notebook
My Toshiba Satellite A305-S6905 has some major startup issues. Once u turn on the power, the LED lights glow on the power button and others but the screen stays black. It waits for the person to hit a key, otherwise it just sits idle with a blank screen. Then, once u hit a key, the LCD screen starts glowing white from the outside to the center until u hit any key again!! Then it starts up normally...I'm totally lost here...help please lol

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.
Tap the Pause Key.
Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.
If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

have you tried either switching between external and internal monitor usally Fn + F5 on toshiba or try plugging a monitor into the back and see if it displays.
if you get a display on the external monitor then its probably a screen or inverter fault if you donot get a display to an external screen then it is likley t be the graphics on the board itself.
hope this helps

SOURCE: a305-s6905 wont start up
It sounds like one of 2 things
1) The DC jack on your motherboard is loose (You can test by getting some long nose pliers and wiggling the DC jack at the back of your PC if it feels loose this jack will need to be replaced by a reputable PC repair shop
2) The motherboard/CPU itself have blown, again this will need to be booked into a reputable PC shop for replacement
Please can i ask that you leave feedback and vote if this has been useful

I would recommend first that you run adaware from www.lavasoft.com and spybot from www.safer-networking.org and check for spyware.
i would then try downloading a trial version of eset from www.eset.com
if that does not find anything, i would then try to take the hard drive out and use it as a second drive on a desktop computer (if its not a sata drive, you will need to buy a 3 1/2 to 2 1/4 inch hard drive converter connector) and run the spyware and virus scanner and have it scan the data drive.
it should solve the problem.
p.s. you might have some corrupted drivers, i would start with the VGA drivers.
