Question about Toshiba Satellite A300-ST6511 Notebook

1 Answer

The case is: I shut my laptop " satellite a300 Toshiba" off by the button, and I did not wait it until shut down normally. then, every time I try to turn it on again it starts normally and then ends to black screen and mouse pointer on. hopefully, it does not have a hardware problem. the blue screen "error disk" did not show up, and hard disk's lamp flashes normally. the operation system is vista. I tried the safe mode and other options randomly without effectiveness.

That pointer is there to notify you that no operating system was found - Windows has been completely corrupted when you have shut it down while it was still working. Just reinstall it and all will be back to normal.

Close out any software currently running on your Toshiba Satellite L305 laptop.

Navigate to the laptop's "Start" menu and choose "Shut Down."


Hold down the laptop's "0" key and press the power button.

Keep the key held down during the boot up process until the "Toshiba Recovery Wizard" window loads on the screen.


Click the check box labeled "Recovery of Factory Default Software." Choose the "Next" option.


Choose the "Recover to out-of-box state" radio button. Select the "Next" button and click "Next" again.

Wait for the "Press any key" prompt to appear and tap a key to restart the laptop.


Use the prompts that appear on the screen to choose your region, time zone and keyboard settings.

Type your new Windows user name and password in the text boxes when prompted. Click "Finish" to load the new operating system.


hope this helps

Toshiba satellite a300 laptop display problem screen black, no display at all.


You laptop either needs a new Cable from the Motherboard to the Screen, a new power inverter, or a new screen. Most commonly, I have seen the video cable get smashed between the hinges/plastic case, and this causes the wires to break apart, leading to a black screen.

Here is the power inverter for your laptop: http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A300,PSAG0U-0CF035,Laptop,Inverters.aspx

Here is the video cable for your laptop: http://www.notebooksolutions.ca/zc/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=3392&zenid=7903c7a1a62c4c2cbfef6ea30865373c

Here is the LCD screen for your laptop: http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,A300,PSAG0U-0CF035,Laptop,LCDs-Displays.aspx

If the display comes back, slightly, when you lift the display lid up and down, this would be a sign that your cable is bad. If you get no reaction from opening and closing the lid, you may have a bad inverter or screen. It is most commonly the inverter or the cable.

If you have a spare monitor, you could plug it into the VGA connector on your Laptop as a temporary solution. If after plugging the monitor in, you get no display, try pressing Fn + F5.
