    wont boot up normally but boots up in safe mode. The hard drive has already been replaced once and it seems tobe having the same problem. I am going to try to reinstall Vista and hope for the best. If not I will have to buy a new hard drive.

Same problem I had after purchasing this computer. I returned it to the store and was given a new one. Same problem - twice! The system board had to be replaced both times. I've had the hardest time with Toshiba about this even though their authorized repair shop indicated to me that they were having lots of problems with this model. I think this particular model is a lemon. The only good news is that all of these problems happened right away (within months), so I was still in the warranty period. The bad part is that I am still having problems with the computer (the Toshiba techs says it sounds as if my hard drive is crashing). Major problems! My suggestion - contact Toshiba right away and get it in for service before the warranty runs out.

Will not boot up. power button light on


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Won't start up - power supply ok, but no power to laptop


Try removing the battery, plug the power cable into the laptop while it is already plugged into the wall then hold the power button down till it comes on. If/when it works, let it boot all the way, shut it down and put the battery back in. It should boot normal again.
It happens due to a relay tripping after a power surge. That procedure resets the relay. Works on a few name brand laptops, including Toshiba.

My Dell Inspiron 1521 has had a battery problem for a couple of weeks but just taking the battery out and only using the adapter worked just fine. One night the computer shut itself down twice. The next...


Hi,
Try running the diagnostics on the computer. You may need to repeat some of the steps that you have already done to initiate the same.

1. Remove the battery and the Ac adapter from the system
2. Press the power button for 10 seconds
3. Reinsert the battery and connect the Ac adapter
4. While holding down the FN key on the keyboard press the power button.

If the system beeps in a series on 3-3-3 or 3-3-4 the system is ok and there could be a problem with the screen.

If the system beeps in some other code . revert to the post and we would let you know where the problem is .

Laptop wont switch on fully


Did you press F8 as you boot up to get boot up options and did try the Last Known good Configuration and Safe Mode?
If these didn't work I suggest you re-install Windows.

The laptop doesn't boot up always.


I would try the following:
1. Remove the battery completely. If the computer boots properly several times in a row, then the battery may be causing the power supply to do strange things.
2. If you have experience removing laptop components, try removing the hard drive. Because you say the screen goes black (I assume the system powers off) sometimes after the HP logo, I doubt its Windows or a software issue.
3. If HP has a diagnostic CD you can boot to, try that.
4. It may be the power supply acting up. If it charges the battery, and if you can boot to Windows with the battery, try getting a new power supply.
5. Otherwise, it may be the motherboard of the laptop.

D800 will not even boot


Okay, I had that problem with my HP less than a minute ago.

Maybe it is the same problem. See if the battery light comes on. Press the power button again and again if it doesn't start, for some time. It may show the boot screen and hang. Now, the battery must be charged. Shut it down directly and switch the AC off.

Now, switch it on and see if the battery light comes on. If it does, it is the same problem as mine. Now, turn the PC over and remove the battery carefully. There may be switches for that.

Now, plug in the AC and start it without the battery in. If it does, you're done. Now, plug in the battery again.

Bought a refurbed dell d600 and it's a little screwy....


A blue screen can be caused by hardware or software. First let’s make sure your hardware checks out. Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will initiate a diagnostic routine to check your hardware. If the diags pass, (no errors) then you probably have an operating software issue.

Nc6320 Laptop power


hello the first thing to make sure of is that the ac adaptor cable is not having any partial contacts ofany kind whereby power gets into the laptop irregularly.this could have adverse effect on the circuitry. it is not enough just checking the output of the ac adapter by a meter.try straighten the cable from the adapter and check the meter for voltage fluctuations. if the above is okay then the problem could be on board leve.
