Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

Open Question

Toshiba satalite A200 PSAF0A-0YK01C. After restoring to out of the box condition with no positive results, I wiped the hard drive and replaced windows vista. All seems to work well until randomly the screen scrambles and the only way to get it back to normal is to switch off and restart. The battry is removed and only running on AC power. I'm no boffin and have struggled to get this far so any real help with be gratefuly recieved. the machine is only 3 yrs old, I can only suspect at this point its going to be a costly repair?

i guess that the computer has installed vista ultimate and the creation of recovery cd option has gone with it. the new recovery cd will solve all your problems.

SOURCE: toshiba a200 laptop Have black screen even tho

You could have a defective screen - follow this to determine the fault.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:


  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Do the following without the battery inserted.

Let the computer sit with no battery for 24 hours. Do not put the battery in at all. Try using your original memory stick ONLY, with no hard drive and see if it will POST. If it does, insert the hard drive and try again. Could be the new memory...

Another thing you can try is reseating the processor. Turn the ZIF screw, take the processor out (WATCH THE PINS!!) and put back in GENTLY. Leave the memory in the computer, hard drive removed, try to power on.

These models have been known for bad motherboards. Contact HP and arrange to send it in. If you do enough digging on HPs website, you'll find the service advisory.

SOURCE: Laptop Toshiba Satellite A200 Model No. PSAF6A-02C01N fail boot

Try removing / swapping / reseating the memory.

Try booting with one stick only, if the top slot doesn't work, try booting the bottom slot. Try both sticks.

Let me know what happens.

The Windows operating sustem appears to be corrupted and most like to get a working computer you need to restore it back to the factore default condition.
Before you attemp to do this and to back up data, remove the hard disk from the Toshiba and connect this hard disk to an USB hard drive adapter, then plug this adapter into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will see this as an external storage device. You can then open the various folders on this drive and back up your data on this computer or an USB memory stick.
To restore your Toshiba, insert the hard disk back into the Toshiba and follow these instructions..

Wiping the hard drive


i presume you have not formatted the drive yet. first make sure there is a restore partition on the drive.... after that go into the start menu and look for a menu item called restore or restore tools .... i'm not 100 % familiar with that computer but the basics of restoring the system are generic.
