Question about Toshiba Satellite 1805-S204 Notebook

1 Answer

My display goes blank when booting-up or when returning from hibernation. I can get it back by moving the display fully open (flat) and momentarily pressing the "cover closed" switch located below the cover hinge at the top right-side of the keyboard. Sometimes it takes several pushes of the switch and seems to be getting more reluxtant to revive. Any ideas of what might be going on here? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What could be wrong with my pc monitor,I turned it on and the screen is blank


it is always best to be as descriptive as possible and give as much info as you can about your problem. is it a laptop or desk top? is it a new display added to a desktop? if it is a desktop and the screen is blank after you turn it on, most likely the cable to the pc is not firmly connected (i've done this many times when setting up a new system) or it could also be that the system has gone into Hibernate mode and moving the mouse or pressing the space bar or escape key could bring it out of hibernate mode. Hibernate mode goes active when the system has been idle for a long time without any keystrokes or mouse activity. hope this helps

My laptop went to hibernate and I cannot wake it from that mode. I only have a blank screen.


you have to press the power button once to get it out of hibernation. If nothing else works you can do one of two things:

1] Press and HOLD the power button for about 5 seconds or until you hear the laptop turn off. Then turn it back on again by pressing the power button momentarily.

2] You can DISABLE hibernation. To do this - follow these steps,

  • right-click the desktop and click on and click on "properties".
  • click the screen saver tab.
  • click the power settings button
  • in the power options properties dialog box click the hibernate tab.
  • uncheck the enable hibernation check box.
  • click OK then click OK again
Hope that helps

Good Luck

Blank screen


Turn Hibernate off for one thing. Hibernation leads to registry problems and boot issues. Go to control panel > power options > hibernate tab > uncheck the box. Reboot the machine. If you want, the laptop will go into standby mode after a period of time and will wake up with a touch on the touchpad. Go back to power options and there are settings in there that you can tailor to your liking.

Screen on Toshiba M35x S149 Laptop blank/flickers


Ok, from the beginning. Can you do a cold boot and get into the bios? (is there an image on the screen then)
Secondly, can you connect to an external monitor and see an image?
Did it do this only when it was heading in to hibernation? If so, it sounds like the power management needs some adjustment.
If there's no image on the external monitor, you may have a video/motherboard problem, or it still could be the operating system/power management.
It all depends on if you have video in bios.
Let me know.
Good luck

Desk top won't display-hibernation mode


Hi,

Based on your post of failure to boot due to hibernation, you can try removing the battery and AC adapter connection for an hour or so. Thereafter, insert battery back and charge but don't power up. Allow the laptop to charge for a couple of hours. Try powering up/booting. Press F8 to start in Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode disable Hibernation.

If the laptop still fails to power up, then it may be entirely another problem.

Post back results. Good luck and kind regards.

Sudden Shutdown/Hibernate


right click anywhere on an empty space on desktop and click on properties in the menu ( or go to control panel and double click on display).

Now in the display property windows click  on screen saver and then click on power at the bottom right.

you will then get the power schemes option where you can change the settings for hibernation , standby etc, adjust it such that your system never hibernates automatically.
