It can be a few thing, the only way is to swap out items, and see if the PC will boot, First take the HDD Out, and see if it will at least try to boot, if it still will not do that try removing a stick of RAM, or swapping RAM if possible, or the DVD, you have to basically do this until you find what is stopping it from working. You also need to check, the battery, remove the battery and try just on the wall PSU. It should at least function. Sometimes the battery can cause it to hang up, as it gets too flat, in that case you need to get a new battery. To see if your HDD is OK or not, hook it up to a USB, to HDD, "Dongle" hook it up to another PC, and see if your HDD is OK and/or, if you can recover your data if you need to. use the sites above to help.

Laptop keyboard mouse not working


Toshiba has released a few different advisories related to its Satellite line of laptop computers having keyboard problems. Remember that damage caused by liquid or physical damage is not usually covered by warranty.

Bios Fixes
On Satellite models 1955-S801, 1955-S802, 1955-S803 and 1955-S804, the BIOS (system utility setup program) had trouble reading the firmware for the wireless keyboard. BIOS version 1.40 repaired this problem. The BIOS flash program can be downloaded from the Toshiba website. http://askiris.toshiba.com/ToshibaSupportSite/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=286356xml&sliceId=&dialogID=124900040&stateId=0%200%2084585964 b> Satellite 1955 Text Anomaly b> Toshiba reported a strange, software-specific problem between the Satellite 1955-S801 and S803 computers and Microsoft Word and Excel. Users who held down the shift key for more than five seconds while using the arrow keys would see their highlighted text disappear. The only provided solution was to use an external keyboard attached with a PS/2 connection or to release the shift key if pausing while highlighting in those programs. General Troubleshooting for Satellite Keyboards b> For general concerns about the keyboard -- if it doesn't appear to be working -- try these few steps. Use the keyboard before Windows loads: hit F1 on the first screen that appears after turning the system on. If they keyboard works here, it's probably a Windows problem. Try attaching an external keyboard; if it works, the internal keyboard is likely broken.
Toshiba Laptop Mouse Problems
Some symptoms that occur with Toshiba laptop mice include jumping and vanishing pointers. These situations have occurred after software upgrades have been made. The problems can often be solved by following basic mouse troubleshooting methods. Overall, Toshiba laptop mice contain the basic functions characteristic of the USB variety.

Function b> The mouse device is used to move, open, delete and otherwise connect with items available on and through the computer monitor. In Toshiba laptops and many others, the mouse pad replaces the point and click USB mouse device. This enables the mobile computer laptop to be more compact, portable and ready to use. b> Features b> The mouse pad on a Toshiba laptop is located in the middle, directly below the keyboard. The control buttons, both primary and secondary are situated below it. The primary key, on the left, represents the left-click button on an USB mouse device. The secondary key on the right represents the right-click button on an USB mouse. This button is used to pull up the short menu of an item after selecting it. Update Keyboard Driver b> Many Toshiba mouse issues can be solved by updating the driver. The driver enables the mouse to function properly. Update the keyboard driver first to increase mouse and keyboard device compatibility. To complete this task, click "Administrative Tools," accessible from the Start menu. Next, click "Computer Management," and then select "Device Manager." Click the "Keyboards" expansion node to bring up the list of installed hardware, and then right-click on the keyboard that is in use. If the "Update Driver" option is available, click on it. Otherwise, select "Properties," go the "Driver" tab and press "Update Driver." Device Manager is a useful tool to update, rollback or uninstall incompatible drivers. b> Update the Mouse Driver b> Update the mouse driver by following most of the instructions in the above section, "Update Keyboard Driver." However, after selecting "Device Manager," click the expansion node next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Select the current mouse device in use and right-click on it. If the "Update Driver" option is available, click on it. Otherwise, select "Properties" and go to the Driver tab and press "Update Driver." b> Check BIOS Fixes b> Some older Toshiba laptop models require BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) fixes. Most of the downloads are available from their website. Since, the BIOS chip is the liaison between the hardware and software, any issues should be addressed promptly. Symptoms, such as erratic mouse behavior or the pointer disappearing, are signs of a need for a BIOS fix or driver update. b> Compatibility b> Toshiba and most Microsoft Windows products are compatible. This is vital when it comes to updating necessary drivers needed for continual operating system function. The service packs they approve of are listed on their website. Hope this helps.
