Black screen problem


it appears there is a high level of data corruption on your computer's hard drive sadly you must reinstall the windows OS however i do recommend using Ubuntu to access your files while in live cd mode by clicking try ubuntu or use mini-XP (a mini version of windows xp) and use an external drive or mega.nz (mega.nz for free can store your files up to fiffty gigabytes)

Need to do a system restore


You can try by going to help by the start buttton and searching on restore/recovery and doing so. Or you can go to start, control panel and looking to see if there is a restore\recovery icon. Lastly you would have to reinstall your operating system by putting in the cd and rebooting after pressing F2 and selecting boot from CD. This WILL cause all user data to be lost so if you need it, it must be backed up first.

Toshiba U400 - when switched on the toshiba logo will appear and followed by a black screen. kindly help me with this problem. I tried F8 but F11 and pressing to reboot but nothing happens.


This probably means it can't boot off the hard disk or the CD ROM.
Make sure there's no CD in the drive.
Try holding F1 as you turn on the unit to see if you can get into the setup if it still won't boot with no CD.

System restore factory settings no cd


Toshiba has built in system recovery partition in your hard drive

Make sure to back up important files in your Laptop to usb or portable hard disk before doing this.

Warning: In using System Recovery you files will be deleted, your laptop will be back to its factory settings

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

How to restore toshiba labtop with no disc


Hello

Well, if you have no Installation disc, or no cd/dvd rom in this specific model, you should have a recovery partition.

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!

If this procedure doesn't work, you don't have a recovery partition set up, hence, you will need the installation disc.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea
