Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook

2 Answers

Blank Screen My computer screen is blank, but i can hear my computer running. Before the computer shut down a blurry blue screen appeared and stated my computer may need updating. Since it shut down, it has not turned back on. I would have put in a recovery disc, but the cd drive will not open. Does this have anything to due to my monitor, battery, bulb, or dust??

Sound like you have a major problem, but try this.

There is a small hole in the front of your CD drive. Staighten a paper clip and stick it in the hole, it will open.Then try plugging into an external monitor and using your recovery disc.

Hi,

If you can hear your windows loading but no display, try plug-in an external Monitory on your Laptop. If you can see the display on the screen with this monitor then maybe your LCD or Inverter is broken, or try turning on/off the switch for External Monitor and LCD Display on your keyboard. Usually by holding the "FN" key on your keyboard and look for the LCD/VGA icon on your keys then press it.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop the screen is black


Shutting the computer down could be done by holding the Power Switch down for 10 seconds, rather than unplug/no battery "solution". A blank screen is more often than not caused by the failure of the screen's backlight. Plugging an external monitor in the ext monitor port would verify the computer still works, and I am sure it does.

Periodic blank screen


If what you're experincing is what I think, then you're having what we would refer to as "The Blue Screen of DOOM". If you're able to boot your PC after this has occured there's still hope. I often get this error because I "miss treat" my computers and what I normally do to "fix" the problem is: Run > cmd Then type the following: chkdsk /r Then your computer whines about it not being able to execute this command, but just answer Y to its 2 questions, then reboot and let your PC run through the "check disk" when it boots up - meaning don't cancel it.

Monitor is blank when we turn the computer on.


Maybe not. Find the FN key. It is usually BLUE in color
Then look on TOP row of Computer keyb (or all over) and find CRT/LCD.
Press the FN and that key and your screen should come back. You accidentally sw. it to CRT (outside, external monitor)

Satellite screen is blank & won't shut down


Don't know why the screen is blank. Toggle the F9 key to make sure you didn't accidentally toogle off the screen.

As far as turning off the power and shutting down the computer, the old stand-by is to take out the battery and then pull the plug. The computer will power down. Replace the battery, replace the plug and then push the start button. You may have to start it up in SAFE mode since the shut down process was not the "normal' process the computer expects to follow.

Laptop boots up intermittently or screen freezes


basing on the information you have given here are the possible solutions:
remove any external device connected to your system (printer, external hard drive and others) if removing this does not work and still gets a blank screen with blinking cursor try to go to safe mode with networking. if successful try to download the driver for your video adapter.

when you try to start the computer , do get anything on the screen like a logo? when does the blank screen occurs, is it during the turning ON of the computer or during the windows xp logo appears on the screen?

a blank screen could be caused by the following: defective video adapter, corrupted video driver, defective memory, unknown device causing the issue like the hard drive, optical drive or other peripheral installed inside the computer.

try also using an external monitor

Blank screen


I think your LCD is stuffed is it under warranty do you know BUT if the screen is cracked they wont replace it typical HP. To get your external monitor running hold down the function key and the blue monitor looking key similtaneously normally on compaq its the F4 key but look around your keyboard (looks like a monitor) and is blue letters.
