Sounds like the display has gone bad. Most likely the inverter, which supplys high voltage to the tube that lights up the screen.

Does a monitor hooked up to the laptop display properly? If so this pretty much confirms that it is the display that is faulty. The only fix I can comfortably recommend to the do-it-yourselfer is to take it in for repair, though you may be better off replacing the whole laptop.

Toshiba Sattelite PRO L300 telling me checking file system C one of disks needs to be checked However it then says an error has occured and won't leave this screen !


Press F8 and choose command prompt.You may have to use a boot disc if you can't get c prompt.
Type cmd ENTER. From the Command Prompt type chkdsk /r/f ENTER. R and F are redundant for repair and fix, but does not hurt.

I own a Toshibe Satellite L350D-215 running windows 7, when I power on the laptop it brings up the Toshiba welcome screen then loads a screen stating that there is or has been a problem and you have...


Sounds like you need to run the recovery disk

If your have the Recovery Disk put it in and boot from cd/dvd,
[Push "F12" at the Toshiba boot screen to access the Boot Menu]

you will loss all your info,,

to save your info [pic's] you will need to plug your hard drive into a desktop with sata.. and back up you info that way then run the disk


if you dont have the disk you will need to get a new windows 7 dvd or contact toshiba for a new Recovery Disk set,

Some times they put the Recovery on the hard drive but i think you need the disk with this one.

I cant fint my system recover drive, i want to reinstall visat on it, its toshibe satellite A135-S4427 please help


Most Toshiba computers do _NOT_ come with a set of "System Recovery" disks.

Instead, there is a program installed on the computer that you use to write your own set of CD/DVD diskettes, using your "blank" disks and your CD/DVD burner. Run the program to create a set of disks.

Or, when you restart your computer, look for displayed text like "press Fnn to start System Recovery". Press the named key.

Usually the cause of blue screen is the memory stick try to remove the memory and clean the dust use eraser to clean the lower part. If the same things happen you need to repair the Operating System. Load the windows CD to repair. It will required to to press any key to boot from CD. Follow the instruction there.

Turn on, asks for password, computer works for a min & blank scre


If you keep pressing F8 before Windows starts to load it should display a menu, if you choose "safe mode" it may then load into Windows. If you're using WinXP you can try a system restore - click start, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore. It should display a calendar. Click on any date in bold and restore to that date. It may solve the problem for you. Did you install a new game or anything just before it went wrong?

Screen flickers and then turns gray


Access BIOS and test if the flickering continues.
If not, it is a Software problem, do a full system recovery
If yes, it is a hardware issue, better contact Toshiba tech support to have your LCD repaired if you are still in warranty.

If your not in warranty, you need to check out the LCD harness that might have been loosely connected.

Hope this helps...
