Insert your WIN OS installation CD - But select recovery.
Attempt to rebuild windows...
This sounds like hard drive issue - sometimes a rebuild will temporarily get around this - but I would strongly recommend once running to do a surface / scan disk...

When connected to ac adaptor it will turn on and toshiba leading innovation appear, but after that no program will displayed, but when i disconnected to the ac adaptor the programs runs normally. the


This is strange.
I think your ac adapter power cord is bad. Get another one from ebay at: http://www.ebay.com

Just put in your computer's make and model, not the model of the battery in the ebay search.

For example: Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 AC Adapter

It might be your lcd screen's inverter, but it's strange. Anyway test the inverter by plugging in the ac adapter and when the screen goes blank try the steps below.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

My computer is on and has a blank page and it will not let me get to startup


What do you mean blank page? And what is startup? Is startup the desktop with your icons? Tell exactly what happens and what you see when you power on the computer.

Maybe you are saying your system booted up all the way except your screen is blank. If so try the steps below.

Tried to boot up my Toshiba Satellite but couldn't get beyond the icon login screen. Clicking the left "mouse" button on the laptop does nothing. I can't get to my desktop or Start button...


Try to open windows in safe mode. An easy way to do this is to press the F8 key after you see the Toshiba logo fade and before the Windows logo. After it opens in Safe mode, close Windows and attempt to load it again... this simple trick may solve your problem.

I have problems with my quick touch buttons. The volume will adjust itself randomly, locking the mouse etc.. Also the wifi button will stop responding sometimes and randomly start working again.


Hi,


Try this,


1. Click combination of buttons on your keyboard Windows+R -> Type MSCONFIG -> OK -> Continue -> Go to Startup Tab in the System Configuration -> Uncheck "HP Quicktouch On Screen Display Item" -> Restart Your computer.

It disables the on screen display of the volume control.


If this helpful, please give a testimonial and vote by pressing button four thumbs up


icon.


Sincerely
Thiyaga.

My laptop (Toshiba Satellite Pro M70) freezes (a times, it gives a blue screen error) when I move it [or adjust its position]. Changed the Hard disk but the problem still persists.


There's no M70 model, so I'm assuming you're talking abut a Satellite Pro M10, M15 series laptop. If the slightest movement hangs it or causes BSOD, then my guess is ... well ... I'll let you have it: the weaknesses of this models are: (1) bad memory socket (the upper socket),or (2) bad sound card socket. The one that's easiest to access is the upper memory socket - remove the installed memory from that socket, and see if your machine will still hang or blue-screen. I don't know if anyone still fixes these sockets (I do), but you can get around it by installing a larger capacity memory into the lower socket and skipping the upper socket altogether.

Toshiba satellite L300 has lines on the screen int hat can see desktop icons properly. What could be the solution?


FIrst thing to try.

Try to display laptop on external monitor.

See if problem is replicated. If it is then it is your video card and most likely board. If it is not then you may have to replace your Lcd.

Start there and share results on thread.
