Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 Notebook PC

1 Answer

I can't open Windows when I start my Toshiba Satellite Pro. The Toshiba screen pops up and allows me to hit f2 or f12 for setup and boot manager, but nothing else. Once the Toshiba screen disappears there is only a blinking white line in the upper left corner, but it doesn't proceed to Windows. Thanks for the help!

Welcome to FixYa!
There are 2 process you could used when it come to cases like this:
1. If its the power settings causing this just follow this steps. Here are the steps:

  • Turn off your computer and unplugged all wires connected to it (including power).
  • Remove the battery from the bottom of the computer. There will be two tabs labeled 1 and 2.
  • Re-plug in the power wire. (the battery should not be in the computer) Turn the power on. The screen will work. Choose start windows normally. (if you get that screen).
  • Go to the start menu then click Control Panel -> (Mobile PC) -> Power Options -> Under Balanced choose change plan settings.
  • Choose Change advanced power settings.
  • Find Processor power management and change the minimum processor state from 5% to 100% for each On battery and Plugged in. Click Apply then OK.
  • Shut down the computer and removed the power cord.
  • Re-install the battery on the bottom of the laptop, plug in the power cord, and restart the computer.
2. If its the boot files being corrupted as the one causing this, you could used this as well.
First BACKED UP your files to an external hard drive using Puppy Linux. You could used this link: (http://www.puppylinux.org/)
Once you are done backing up your file then follow this:
  • Booted up the computer and pressed and held down F12 (boot)
  • Insert the Toshiba recovery disc (there should be a disc one and two).
  • Selected CD/DVD from boot menu
  • Go to Toshiba recovery wizard then go to the second option (format/delete everything off of hard drive)
  • Restart the computer
  • Re-load the disc
  • Select Toshiba recovery wizard and then select the first option.
  • Once the wizard began, wait until it asked you to insert disc two. Continue from there.
Hope this helps you. Have a nice day and thank you for using FixYa!

There is something wrong with your hard drive.. It is not being recognized by your bios. Could be a bad logic board. Get appropriate software and perform diagnostics on it to confirm

My toshiba satellite l455 won't start up it keeps going 2 toshiba home screen and telling me 2 push f2 or f12


click on F2 and that will take you to the Bios setup, check that your hard drive and Ram (Memory) are both online if all is ok and no problems press F12 it might take you to a diagnostic screen prompting you to perform a diagnostic test, if so do the tests and write down any errors given, if there is not diagnostic tool you might get the options to restor factory defaults this option will reset your computer to its original state and you will lose all your data. Another option if you have the operating system's cd (windows xp, vista etc) from the bios (F2) change the boot sequence to cd (just click on Cd/DVD Rom)only and reboot, windows will ask you if you want to repair, if all your hardware is ok and you should be able to solve the problem good luck and all the best

I restarted my Toshiba satellite a305 and now it won't boot up or go into safe mode. It comes to the start up screen that says press f2 for setup f12 for boot manager. It will let me go into setup and boot...


If it won't let you go to safe mode,then there's something that the BIOS(setup) or Boot Manager needs before starting the operating system(Windows Vista). You should have a Toshiba Recovery Disk which will fix this . The disk will not touch any of your current files and data,so don't worry about that.

When i turn on my computer a black screen pops up saying enter current password._ Unable to use f2 or f12 What am I supposeed to do


Hi

You could try to start up in safe mode ( quite often f8 ) sign in as administrator and cancel the password

Also if you get into safe mode try a system restore back to when it was ok

Or hit delete key a few times when starting up hopefully this will take you into the bios because the f12 or f2 key may be disabled

Be very careful what you change in your bios because on a laptop its not very easy to change jumpers on bios battery so only enable the f2 or f12 then hit save and exit windows will then restart

But be very very carefull not to play around in the bios if you dont understand it you may end up with BIG BIG Problems

How to boot from windows CD / boot property changes


Hi there.
Restart the laptop and hit F2 as it starts, that will take you into the bios, in the bios look for the boot order and set the CD/DVD as first boot device, hit F10 and exit the bios, the computer will restart and allow you to boot from CD.
