My 1st inclination would be to tell you to hook up an external monitor and see if the computer actually does anything (i.e., do you get a POST screen or does it stay dead as well).

Obviously, either condition (working or not) alludes to a problem with the motherboard and merits being replaced, however, in several cases with Satellite laptops (I have repaired a multitude of) the cost of the replacement board ends up being quite cost prohibitive. Seeing as several similarly (or progressive) laptops are being sold for as much as the repair parts.

I can imagine this isn't an answer you would like, but I have run into far too often. At least its worth pondering. Plus, there are several software fixes out there that will let you get your information off the old drive as well (so you can migrate it to your new laptop).

Hope this helps...

My Toshiba NB500 wont boot and the screen wont work. I turned it on this morning and it came up with pxe media failure check cable or something along those line now i try to turn it on and nothing happens...


The Hard disk drive was not detected by the system. Turn off the laptop and try to reinsert the hard disk. Start the PC up and go to Bios/Cmos set up by hitting the F2/Del key.. check if the hard disk drive is in first boot set in boot priority device at ADVANCED settings. then exit and save settings.

My toshiba mini laptop NB305 will turn on but it wont boot up, and the screen stay black, how do I fix it?


pull the battery, disconnect the ac adapter and hold down the power button for about 10 seconds, then put the battery back in, plug it in and try booting it. If that works, you're good, if not then the motherboard most likely needs to be replaced.

My laptop screen stays black when i boot up? I installed a new inverter but did not fix the problem. Could it be a cable of some sort?


Shine a flashlight on the screen at an angle during boot up and see if you see anything, its possible your backlight has gone bad, if that is the case you can probably find a replacement screen on ebay.

My laptop wont turn on


When you boot up the Toshiba and it appears to boot up and the hard disk LED light flashes but you get a black screen then the problem is a back-light fault. This is caused by a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

My toshiba A200 screen occasionally turns black and music also stops. When i try manually restarting my laptop, sometimes it works but most of the time it doesnt boot at all. Sometimes it doesnt even go...


This sounds like a hard drive is, or has failed. Either that or the RAM (memory has gone bad)
Did you let the laptop overheat? Was it left on for a long time? Or is this just an old machine ?
I would replace the hard drive, and reload the operating system, that is if you really want to keep the laptop. If that solves it great! Also, did you notice if there are any "beep" noises, or error messages when it acts up? Often times, you can go on the internet and find out what the messages mean.

Screen turns black


boot up in safe mode if you can by depressing the f8 key. select options to boot with networking. from there if you are able to get on, go to Toshiba's website and download the latest video drivers and bios. Make sure you flash your bios and update drivers then attempt to boot normally. this should resolve your issue. Let me know if that helps, I have another solution if that does not.

Good Luck!

Toshiba satellite with windows xp will only show black sreen and wont let windows xp repair


Your description of the symptom shows that your operating system installation has been corrupted. Fastest and easiest way to resolve the Issue using the "Recovery and application disk" (it comes with laptop) to perform full system recovery. I would like to remind you full system recovery will erase everything saved on Hard drive. You can check possible option on http://support.toshiba.com

If you dont have recovery and application disk you get one. You can call Toshiba @ 1-800-457-7777

Please post if you need further assitance

Good Luck

1. Go to this website and download Ultimate Boot CD
2. Now download this tool to burn this Image

This is the program you should have downloaded.
Now that you have the program where it says file location look for the location you downloaded your file. Usually its C:\Downloads but it could be in a different location. Once you've located the file burn it to a CD or DVD of your choice.

4. Once you boot this cd you need to look for Partition Manager click on it. Click on HDD and then look for FDISK.

Make sure that you have an active partition which should say C: Active
