Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
My laptop won't do anything. I turn it on and the screen stays dark, it makes a noise like it is starting up, then nothing. My sister had a guy "fix" it last time this problem happened, he said it was a button I must've accidentally hit. She said he hit F5 ad one other button and it worked fine. That was a few weeks ago. Now, I need it to study for my college final tomorrow and it won't turn on! what buttons do I need to push?
Ok maybe what happened is that you accidentally enabled the external monitor function.
That is when you want to connect your computer to a monitor, projector, etc. your monitor will turn black and you will be able to see the other monitor.
most computers you have to press the keys Fn+ either f5 or f8 that will return to your screen.
if the configuration on your keyboard is different look for the key that says CRT/LCD and combine it with Fn if you can not find it try Fn and all the f keys on top (Fn+f1, f2, f3, etc) when you do that wait a few seconds to see if your monitor reacts.
if it works for you don't forget to rate me
