Toshiba Satellite A200 - black screen at startup

At startup I get 3 beeps (one long and 2 short) and then a blank screen. After 20 or 30 times of rebooting it reboots. I've tried removing the battery and booting with just the power cord, removing the RAM and booting with just one or the other to no avail. I haven't been able to find a solution online to this problem and it is preventing me from shutting down or rebooting to upgrade programs. Anyone have any ideas?

    I have not checked the video settings in my bios or rest the bios defaults. Any guidance on how to do that would be helpful. Thanks for you quick response!

1 long and 2 short beeps generally indicates an error with the display adaptor.

This may require either checking the video settings in your bios (but sounds like you already have), reseting BIOS defalts (again, sounds like you have done this) or may require a new motherboard.

    during startup when you have the TOSHIBA splash screen, there will be directions on how to get into your BIOS setup...either the DEL key or F2 or ESC.

    Once you are in the bios you should be able to find the "Load bios defaults" or "load optimal settings" on the last page of the BIOS screen. select this, then exit and save your changes.

    I hope this helps

Hello,

  1. try to back up the files on an external drive
  2. re install the windows
  3. and try to turn it on to see if there will be any improvements
  4. avoid loading the laptop with too many files,
  5. in case of storing files, try to use an external hard disc.
if it does the same, then it is a hardware problem.

  1. try to test the components (RAM, battery, mother board etc) in another similar laptop and see what happens.
if the problem persists, then you have to replace the board of the laptop.

take care.

Toshiba satellite A200 - press power to turn on the machine and get blank screen and 3 beeps then nothing. Computer was left in sleep state for approximately 2 hours and now refuses to wake or reboot...


HI
Try to unplug the power supply and take the battery out. so it means there is no power going to the laptop. now press and hold the power button down for approximately 1 minute.
After that put the battery in and plug the adapter back.
Try to turn the laptop on most probably it will come on
If it still does the same thing contact ur laptop manufacturer

Laptop won't reboot


are you trying to put win 10 on as it can do this some time, can take upto 10 15 min to load, when the like is flashing its dos, when the screen is black its windows it takes some time for windows to find a driver and load it so the screen comes up. i've had this on a200's before. if you keep rebooting you will need to wipe the hard drive and start again. this also does this on win 7 and 8. win xp it does not do this as its full dos setup .

My toshiba A200 screen occasionally turns black and music also stops. When i try manually restarting my laptop, sometimes it works but most of the time it doesnt boot at all. Sometimes it doesnt even go...


This sounds like a hard drive is, or has failed. Either that or the RAM (memory has gone bad)
Did you let the laptop overheat? Was it left on for a long time? Or is this just an old machine ?
I would replace the hard drive, and reload the operating system, that is if you really want to keep the laptop. If that solves it great! Also, did you notice if there are any "beep" noises, or error messages when it acts up? Often times, you can go on the internet and find out what the messages mean.
