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.

ok th p6000. complete range when they were made had to be recalled as they put the copper expansion pipes ran across the gpu & cpu hence a massive overheat problem. they put copper shims over the cpu & gpu but this worked for a short time but it was inevitable and both units ended up being cooked i had this problem with mine. so if you have tried external monitor with no images it would sound or more likely to be the gpu cooked sorry for the bad news.
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.
Remove the battery and the AC adapter from the laptop.
Press and hold the power button for 60 seconds then let go
Plug the AC adapter only back into the laptop
Now press the power button on the laptop
If it now boots properly shut down the laptop and insert the battery
Now push the power button again
If it now fails you may have a bad battery
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 . Thanks for using fixya proton
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.
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.
OHHH BOY!!!! Yo got the Blue Screen of Death. go to google, and search for "Bart PE" next download the program, run it and let it burn to a cd. now boot the bad computer using the disc, and run the command prompt. next type in "CHKDSK C:/r" let this run until it is finished. THen reboot, and take the disc out. Your computer should now work perfectly. This happens sometimes when there is a little bit of information that is not saved, and is lost when the computer shuts down. Then it says there is an error finding the file because there really is no file.
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.
