This all because operating system getting older...(too much of programs) It's time to install it again

Try to restoring windows goto
start > allprograms > accessories > system tools > System restore

you get a window then restore it by selecting the oldest date from the calender (oly some be visible).

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.

Lid switch shorting somewhere. In this model there is no pin that I can ses. But after removing bezel it flickers but I need the location of the lid switch to check. When opening lid slowly it sometimes...


Probably not a lid switch related problem. In the more modern Toshiba's, the lid-close switch is generally located either above the keyboard area or underneath the front end of the palmrest (towards you), and the lid-close function is activated by a magnet located either above or below the screen. Best way to check if the lid-close function is working properly is to use Toshiba's power management to set the system to go to either stand-by or hibernation upon lid-close - and if the computer goes to stand-by or hibernation when you shut the lid, then that part is functioning properly.

A better, more detailed and precise description of the problem with the screen will probably help in addressing the real problem.

I CANT CONECT TO WIRELESS USEING MY TALK TALK ROUTER...IM NOT EVEN SURE IF MY LAPTOP IS WIRELESS ENABLED ITS A TOSHIBA SATELITE PRO..L20


Hi tracie23368... There's a wireless toggle on the front to control to rurn on the onboard Atheros 802.11b/g WLAN module. All you should have to do is push that toggle in the front of your machine to the right or to the left and hold for a few seconds which will turn on the Atheros wireless card in your laptop. Then it should hook to your wireless router. Note...If you have the security set on the wireless, it will have to be also set in the laptop to be able to hook to your router Please take time to rate me thumbs up

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.

My Toshiba satellite L20 laptop has gone into hibernation mode and I cannot switch it on at all.


Try reseating the battery(Basically try taking out the battery for 10 secs then putting the battery in). The battery is located probably behind and under the laptop!! If that does not help, there could be something worse wrong with your laptop. When you plug it in does the indicator show that its plugged in? regards, babb
