Hi King,

I see that you are having issue with your Toshiba and as you mentioned that you are seeing a black screen with a blinking cursor and I believe that it is on the upper left side of the screen.

Having this blinking cursor means that the machine is not booting into the Hard drive, we will check several things on your laptop to find out what is causing this on you laptop.

  • First as soon as you power your Laptop ON keep on tapping f12 to get to the boot menu, once you see the boot menu screen it will show you a list the first one should be you Hard drive it should say SATA so on ans so fort click on it then press enter this should boot into your Hard Drive but it still you get the blinking cursor then we will need to check the BIOS.
  • To get into the BIOS from shut down as soon as you power the system on keep on tapping F1 this will show you a Blue screen it may say Phoenix BIOS on the upper left side or center or may be different,
  • Once in the BIOS screen there will be tabs on top of the screen for options, look for boot check the Boot sequence and change the first boot priority to the Hard drive.
  • But doing both the instructions above will only work if the Hard drive is detected, by doing F12 for the Boot menu if the Hard drive is not on the list then the Hard Drive will most likely not be in the BIOS as well and this means that th Hard Drive on your system may need replacing.
I believe that this is a far as we can go since there is no other option to do regarding this concern, unless you would know how to open up you Laptop from beneath and re-seat it from it connection, re-seat meaning remove and reconnect.

Have a nice day I hope that I was able to provide details that can help .

While the system is starting up keep pressing F8 (function key 8). When you see a black screen with bunch of options select "Last Know Good Configuration". Let me know if that fixes the issue.

I HAVE A SATELLITE L45- S7423 AND IT WAS WORKING FINE AND WHEN I TURN IT BACK ON, IT TURN ON THE GREEN LIGHT BUT THE SCREEN WHEN BLACK.


Your can try to unplug and re-plug your screen connector. Turn over your laptop and look for a very small cap in the left corner. Take out that 1 little screw and look for the connector.
Hope this will solve your problem
