    I have a Toshiba A215-7428 that is doing the same thing. It barely tries

    to boot, actually the harddrive or fan spin for just a second, then it stops,

    nothing on screen, not even bios boot, and the power buttons on the bottom of

    the notebook stay on, but the top power lights are off. The keyboard lights if you press the FN key.



    I tried reseating the RAM, no luck.

I think this is already a hardware problem, it could be your LCD or your systemboard, try connecting an external LCD or monitor thru the VGA -out & check if you have a display. If not, it might be your systemboard that's causing the problem & this may require service.

Hope this helps.

The monitor on my Toshiba P25-S5093 does not have any display of any kind; all black. I have display using external monitor.


Hi,
Does the display show anything before you enter windows? If yes, then press the key to transfer video back to your original screen once you enter windows. It should be the function key "Fn" + F5 - F8. looks for the icon which shows a monitor or says "CRT/LCD".
If it doesn't show anything before you enter windows I'm afraid your screen needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Won't boot any more. BIOS says the HDD is not detected. Is it dead, needs to be replaced? Something else?


First off-- If you can boot to the BIOS and not to the HDD and If all cable connections are good and jumpers are set correctly then it could be a cable or the unit itself

Toshiba satellite p25 s509 lapto video output problem im using a


What type of Video Card in in the laptop?
check the laptop case on left side of keyboard sometimes stickes are there saying what type.
I have seen ATI Mobility cards in laptops that have all the software working on the machine properly, but the display driver is either bad and cirrupt and causes the machine to reboot, or its a fualty video card that can cause the machine to crash.

Easy way to check, boot the machine and as windows XP boots press the F8 key (this enters safe mode) when menu appears choose safe mode with networking. and let it continue.
if it boots up and continues to a display and doesn't crash, the video driver is bad.
then just uninstall the video driver, then go to the nabufacturers website and download a new video driver for your model laptop.

Toshiba satellite p25 s5093. won't boot.


The system cannot find your hard drive so it is trying to boot from the next device which is thinks is a network drive. Check the attachment of the hard drive, sometimes they can come loose from the interface. Remove the hard drive and place it back. If the machine still cannot read the drive, try another hard drive to see if the drive is the problem or is it a problem with the interface. Make sure to remove any discs from the cd/dvd players and make sure no usb network adapters are in it while booting. Check the boot order again.

hello, those beeps you hear usually means some error, and it depends on how many beeps you hear and in which sequence. below you will find several BIOS vendors and their beep codes which help you detect the problem:

Toshiba Satellite P25-S5263 monitor problem


It could be a driver problem perhaps. Does the post screen show at all or is there absolutely nothing?
