Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I try to use my Toshiba laptop without the mains adapter plugged in, the screen goes completely blank after a couple of minutes. Pressing escape or any other button does not do anything. I have to remove the battery then plug in the mains and restart it. There is always plenty of battery life. My computer is less than 12 months old.

Your battery is not charging anymore the capacitor inside of it is weak or leaky that's why they cannot hold the voltage charge you need to replaced it.

Your install discs are bad. Please don't shoot the messenger. Call Toshiba for new discs. Here is the number (it took me 30 minutes to find this. Please give me a 4-thumbs-up rating. If you don't, I spent time away from family for free).

My toshiba satellite pro 6100 will not turn on. The battery light and power light turns green but it will not turn on.sometimes it will on and hang on toshiba logo and if it check it will just off


There's a couple of things you can try here. First I would connect the laptop to an external monitor. If that works, then check to make sure that it is set to internal screen usage by pressing the function key and holding it while pressing the f5 key. If this works then problem solved. However if you get an external screen but the laptop screen still does not turn on then the problem is internal to the laptop you need to get a tech to look at it.

Next, if the above procedure does not produce any results, take off the battery, take off the memory, press the power key a couple of times, replace the ram and the plug in the ac adapter and see if it works. Replace the battery and see if it works. If it works without the battery and not with it then your problem is your battery.

Since you are getting the battery and power lights to turn on, I doubt that it would be your dc jack.

I am trying to diagnose a problem with my son's laptop screen going blank. I shall try to describe the symptoms. 1. When plugged into an external monitor, everything works fine. 2.The laptop screen...


Have you check the cable that goes from the screen at the motherboard? Usually this cable is not visible; it is hidden it one of the joints between screen and main body of the notebook.This cable is the most common problem in the cases that the notebook keeps on working although the screen is black. You can check it by opening slowly - slowly the screen all the way up and closing again slowly. If there is a cut at the cable your screen will get black at a specific slope.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

Thanks and regards

Laptop won't start up


It sounds like your laptop is using it's external VGA adapter for its main display. Try holding down the Function (FN) on your keyboard located on the bottom left hand side and pressing F4 at the same time.

Toshiba a105 screen goes blank


Sounds like GPU failure. unfortunately its nigh on impossible to replace without replacing the whole board which can be expensive. I saw a few on ebay for around £120.
