Upon turning it on keep pressing the F8 key to obtain the repair screen
Choose start windows in the safe mode with the COMMAND PROMPT
When the screen shows C:/ type in chkdsk /f /r
Then restart the computer
If the windows still won't start take the unit back for exchange or have the BOOTMGR installed

Toshiba Satellite L300D. Laptop will come out of sleep or hibernate mode without prompting and display the login box.


If the login box is displayed when it wakes up, that is usual. It uses a sensor to detect when the lid id open and will come out of standby when it thinks the lid is open.
Re configure the power off settings to avoid standby or sleep mode when the lid is closed.

By default, all laptops either go on standby or turn off to save precious battery, but you can override these rules from the Power Options (XP) in your control panel (Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options) and click on Advanced Tab and override the settings according to your preference.

Your system is consuming much power.

Go to Control Panel, Power Options.

Click "Advanced Power Settings" for your current power plan.

Under the section "What happens when I close the lid", choose "Do nothing" for both "Battery" and "Plugged-in".

Click "Apply" and "Ok".

Now, close the lid of your laptop and open it, it would restore but next time don't overload your system power.

This is common with Dell and Toshiba.

The computer hiberates when I close the lid, then I have to shutdown & restart to resume working. Can I avoid this somehow?


  1. right click your desktop and select properties
  2. select the screen saver tab
  3. at the bottom click the "power" option
  4. deselect the option for hibernation
  5. make sure your hdd is NOT set to turn off when the lid is closed


you can actually set the laptop up to continue running even programs when the lid is closed. this is the best option if you are constantly running application that require an extended wait period between startup and shut-down




good luck and pls rate this post

Put my toshiba laptop into sleep mode closed the lid, reopened it within seconds, and now the laptop will not come back on


Reboot the laptop, go to control panel > power options > go through the settings, especially what does the computer do when lid is closed and change the setting to "do nothing", turn off hibernation if it is on. Change other settings to now allow the computer to go to sleep, just let it run until you decide to turn it all the way off. Sleep mode and Hibernation cause more problems than do good.

Problems with Toshiba Satellite A135


It sounds like you need to adjust your setting when you close the lid. If you set it to do nothing when the lid closes that should sort out your problem. Often it won't let you adjust them so if you uninstall the power management and then do the adjustments in the power settings then you should be ok
