Hi,

This could be a problem with the LCD inverter, GPU (graphics processing unit), memory or it could even be related to the battery.

First of all turn the laptop off and remove the battery. Then turn the laptop on just using the AC power only see if that resolves the issue.

If not then remove the system memory which you should find in a compartment underneath the laptop (you will need a philips screwdriver for that) clean the brass contacts and the slots that the memory clips into and then put the memory back in and try to boot the laptop up.

If that does not work get an external monitor and connect it to the laptop. Use the keyboard toggle to switch screens, its usually Fn and one of the F keys (between F4 and F7 usually)

If the monitor comes on and shows the boot information then you are looking at a new inverter or re-solder the old one.
If the external screen doesn't come on then the problem could be faulty memory or a down GPU.


If you need anymore help on this matter please post back.


Good luck and regards.

Toshiba Portege r200 was working normal (up until yesterday). Today, when I first turned it on, the fan was on and it sounded full blast, but screen remained dark (blank). I held power button until it shut...


The part that supplies the power to the screen is gone. I recall is is called the 'exciter'. They can be replaced, so take it to a computer repair shop. Same thing happened to my Toshiba.

Monitor is blank when we turn the computer on.


Maybe not. Find the FN key. It is usually BLUE in color
Then look on TOP row of Computer keyb (or all over) and find CRT/LCD.
Press the FN and that key and your screen should come back. You accidentally sw. it to CRT (outside, external monitor)

Satellite screen is blank & won't shut down


Don't know why the screen is blank. Toggle the F9 key to make sure you didn't accidentally toogle off the screen.

As far as turning off the power and shutting down the computer, the old stand-by is to take out the battery and then pull the plug. The computer will power down. Replace the battery, replace the plug and then push the start button. You may have to start it up in SAFE mode since the shut down process was not the "normal' process the computer expects to follow.

Toshiba Satellite A75-S206 PC Problem


if your screen remains blank after power on, then its not virus problem. The POST information like CPU speed memory check, HDD details etc, should must appear on screen. If not then the problem might be on board and/or on your screen.

You should take a tour to service centre. If its in warrenty, it will be free of charge.

Thanks
