Every time I turn it on, it displays nothing, just a black screen.But the power indicator is on and there are some white lights flashing next on the Caps lock button and above the scroll button..


Dead (ish) Laptop.

Press the power button momentarily to check if it is hibernating or in stand by. If this doesn't work;

Try firstly removing the laptop's battery as it may be at a critical voltage and the system will not start because of it. Plug in your ac adaptor and monitor what happens. Does the power light illuminate? If it does it should then boot up, if it doesn't, try a known good ac adaptor before going any further.
If the adaptor is fine and the laptop still won't start, then you may have a mother board fault and should contact a dealer/repairer for further advice.
Hope this helps.

Have a Eee PC 701 SD. I can turn on the laptop but once it's on nothing is displaying on the screen. I tried every button possible but nothing works.


Its possible that the LED light that illuminates the screen is dead. If you look very closely can you make out any information on the screen or is it absolutely black? If you can see text or Windows, then its likely the backlight.

If you cant, try plugging an external monitor in to see if it is even booting. Also look at the HDD light (bottom right of the keyboard) to see if it flickers on and off while starting. If there are no lights, then you may have a dead unit... Get er fixed.

Toshiba LS25-S119 Start Up Problem


Hi,
you,ve got 1 of several problems here.
1:- A Virus may have locked off the hard-drive.
2:- The RAM is faulty.
3:- The CPU is faulty.
Ensure the battery is left on to charge fully, and retry to boot the System.

Remove the battery and plug in the transformer. Then try to power up. Sometimes a faulty battery prevents a laptop from booting. (Such was the case for me).
