Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My screen won't light up. When I start up, I see a very dim, reddish Toshiba start logo, and although everything else loads and starts up, the screen remains black. If I light the screen from the side with a flashlight, I can see the desktop and any programs I open. I've checked the display settings and I'm fairly sure they're all OK, and I've checked to make sure the lid/case latch switch is working and not stuck. What now? Plz. Help, Thank You! INFO: 1.

Hi...
Its either a broken/loose wire on your invertor,or your inverter may have given up the ghost...they are easy enough to replace and quite cheap in ebay....just put the make and model of your laptop on ebay...and there should be plenty on there for anywhere between £10-30...and it,s about 30 min-60 min job depending on your experience

    Your inverter is located behind the screen,should be plugged into the back of the screen..google your laptop specs and technical

My Laptop won't fully start/blacks out/won't recover


You are lucky that this issue is operating system based from what it seems, try to work the recovery option, let it be that way for hours. It will move at some point.

Did you have a AV installed? If not it is crucial to have an anti-virus software installed on PC.

If all the efforts appear fruitless, contact Samsung; it could be a hardware issue as well... although they are less frequently observed.

Toshiba Sattelite PRO L300 telling me checking file system C one of disks needs to be checked However it then says an error has occured and won't leave this screen !


Press F8 and choose command prompt.You may have to use a boot disc if you can't get c prompt.
Type cmd ENTER. From the Command Prompt type chkdsk /r/f ENTER. R and F are redundant for repair and fix, but does not hurt.

My 2004 f150 wont start. i drove it to the store and everything worked fine. when i came out of the store, the truck won't start. when i turn the key nothing happens. i can hear a clicking noise coming...


I would check your battery. I would also look for loose grounds. The clicking you hear is your fuel pump turning on. I would check your battery voltage and, have the battery load tested.

No Screen display on tecra m3 laptop


if you go into safe mode (F8) on boot-up, does the graphics show up?? If so, it's the graphics board/chip on the MB. I have one and have the same problem - no amount of loading drivers, re-install BIOS, etc. would help. sometimes it works, but most times when you start up, shows the Toshiba logo, and once windows starts, goes to a black screen.
