Exactly whst is howing, just an empty windows screen? Reboot your pc and as soon as you see something on the screen start hitting the F8 key. This will take you to a boot option list. Select last known good configuration. See what happens. If that doesn't work. reboot again and hit the F8 key again, this time choosing safe mode. If it boots into safe mode do a system restore. Go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Look at the dates and see if something was installed on a date a day or two ago. Pick a date before that. If nothing was, pick a date about two days ago when everything was running fine. The system will then reboot itself and tell you if it was successful. If it is running ok do a complete virus scan and anti-spyware check. If you need these programs I can tell you where to get good ones for free. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, don't rate yet. Just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. If you need those programs just add a comment also. Thanks.

My laptop wont show any icons on the desktop and it wont do anything but show my background and mouse.


Hello, If your laptop shows something on your desktop before and suddenly it just stop showing things then right click on your desktop,under VIEW, click on SHOW DESKTOP ICON. If this does not work then your laptop has been infected with Virus.You need to get a good anti-virus to remove the virus or format your system. Regards

I buy vga to rca and s video cable to conect toshiba laptop to tv and dont show grafic options how ican make work


There is a button to switch from laptop monitor to external monitor or can view on both monitors. There is a button with a drawing of two monitors, usually the F5 button. Press FN and F5 simultaneously to switch from laptop monitor to external monitor. Press them again to view both on laptop and external monitor. Press them again the third time to view only on your laptop monitor.
