Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot

When the laptop was booting, my kid pressed some keys, and then the laptop screen stays black, it didn't boot at all. Power LCD light is on, fan is running, but hard-drive light is off and no hard-drive reading activity.

Press start key and hold, it shut down. Start again, the same thing happends. Hard-drive light on once and then off forever. Black screen, power light on, hard-drive light off.

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

How can i go in boot option


Normally when you power on your Toshiba Satellite laptop it attempts to boot the operating system installed on its hard drive.
In some instances you may want to boot the Satellite laptop from a different device, such as an operating system installation CD or a USB drive.
The boot order doesn't have to permanently be set to the hard drive.
It's possible to access the boot order before the operating system loads and change which device is set to boot first.

Turn off the Toshiba Satellite laptop.
Turn it back on immediately and wait for the "press the F2 key to enter Setup" entry to show up on the screen.
Press the "F2" key to access the Toshiba Satellite's BIOS menu.
Use the right arrow key to navigate to the BIOS tab labeled "Boot."

Scroll down to the option labeled "Boot Priority" and tap Enter.
Check through the list of devices and locate the specific device you want to use to Boot your Toshiba laptop, such as "CD-ROM," "USB" or "LAN."

Highlight the name of the device in the list and then tap Enter to make it the top boot priority.
Use the right arrow key again to scroll over to the "Exit" BIOS menu.

Tap the down arrow key to highlight the "Save and Exit" option.
Press Enter to save the new boot order and restart your Toshiba Satellite laptop.

Repeat the procedure when you want to change the boot order back to its original setting.

Turn the computer off all of the way by holding in the power button until it shuts off.

Turn it back on and immediately start tapping the F8 key. It should bring you to a menu that has an option for going to "Last Known Good Configuration". Choose that option and see if it boots up.

If pressing F8 doesn't bring you to the menu - you may need to run diagnostics on the computer. To get to the diagnostics, attempt to boot to the Boot Menu by pressing F11 or F12 at the boot screen and see if it gives you the option to run diagnostics.

not sure if this will help you ...
How to Restore a Toshiba L305The Toshiba Satellite L305 notebook computer has a recovery program pre-installed at the factory that lets users return the hard drive to its out-of-box state. Using the recovery feature completely deletes all software and options saved on the laptop, which resolves any boot up problems and removes any virus infections. The recovery option isn't accessible directly through the operating system however, and must be accessed by starting up the computer in a different way than normal. Step 1 Close out any software currently running on your Toshiba Satellite L305 laptop. Navigate to the laptop's "Start" menu and choose "Shut Down."
Step 2 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.
Step 3 Click the check box labeled "Recovery of Factory Default Software." Choose the "Next" option.
Step 4 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.
Step 5 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....

My toshiba laptop will try to start up but the screen stays black


Slot in your xp CD when the system is about to start. When it says, "press any key to boot from CD," press any key. Allow setup to run. At next dialogue press enter key. Then press F8 to accept agreement. At the next screen where it asks you press "R," press R to repair the xp installation. The rest is straight forward. Just follow till the end. At the end your system will boot. Take note you must Press "R" when prompted. This should take about 35 minutes depending on your hardware specs. All your data will be intact.
