    I have a P205-S6267 that does not boot, screen is black, hard drive light starts to light for only a second after power button is pressed then never lights again, DVD drive will spin a DVD but will not boot a bootable DVD. Removing RAM does not product any beeps. Connecting an external monitor does not produce video.

    I have had this problem and thought it was me or something I have done. It was fine one second and then it wasn't. I turn on the comp and it starts to do something but it stops within seconds and sits black screen nothing doing a dang thing.

    It has twice shut on while attempting to turn it on for over an hour repreated hitting power on and off.

    I have wondered perhaps,

    - it is a jammed key, the keyboard does seem 'susceptible'.

    -the drive portion of the machine is burnt out and cannot run

    -Toshiba sold a ton and made lesser products toward the end...

    Please respond if anyone else has a clue what this is all about.

Hi my Toshiba satellite p205-s6287 powers on but the screen blank

There are a lot of things that can cause this.
But the one that is in your grasp is a problem with the Memory Modules.
Open the small cover on the bottom that covers the memory.
Remove one chip leaving one chip, and rotate between the slots and the modules.
A bad ram chip will cause this problem.
Lets hope thats what it is, because otherwise it could very well be a problem with the motherboard, and that is not too cost effective to repair/replace.

Toshiba satellite P205-S6287 the power button

Make sure the battery has a full charge, and that it's plugged into a wall socket, then try the power button. You will get the same symptoms as a bad power switch if your battery power is very low. Other than that, the battery could be bad, or going bad. If the problem is a faulty power switch, you will have to have it replaced.

I would boot into Safe Mode and run this utility to check your registry and startup.


You can try the original OS cd and repair the installation of the OS.

Last Resort

If that does not work then see if you can roll your computer back to a date prior to the problem starting.
