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.

Toshiba satellite C655 laptop has black screen with blinking cursor. It did complete some Windows updates. I was on the Internet then my laptop just shut down and it in this black screen with blinking...


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.

Hi,

When the TOSHIBA splash screen is displayed or when you first turn on your computer, a boot menu prompt may be displayed for a few seconds near the bottom of the screen, indicating that a key (F2 or F12, for example) can be pressed to display a menu of boot options. The time allowed for detecting the keypress is very brief, so you'll need to be both prepared and quick.

On some models this prompt reads Press F12 for boot menu. On others, it may say Press C to boot from CD-ROM. On still others, there may be a row of colored icons representing the various boot devices (HDD, FDD, CD, LAN, PCMCIA, etc.) Press "F12" or "C" while these icons are displayed, and then use the arrow keys to move the cursor from one to another. As new models are released, the wording of these prompts may change.

Now if above steps works for you then it will start booting up from CD and then we have a shot to fix the problem you have with a simple command.

Once the computer boots up fine, go to the screen which says "Install Now". On this screen, look at the bottom left corner, you will see "repair your computer". Select this option & Choose your keyboard & language on next screen.

It will take you to the screen which will have 5 options:

Startup Repair: This option can repair the booting up problems automatically.

System restore: It startup repair doesn't works, Try this option to restore your computer to the day it was working.

Memory Optimizer: This is used to diagnose any problems with memory.

Complete PC restore: With this option, we can restore our computer to the factory settings. Performing this will result in loose of all data and software installed but it will bring everything back which you got preinstalled with your device.

Command prompt: In this option you can try some advanced command line instructions to fix the errors.

First let's try the best option "Command Prompt" to fix your problem:

>>Select "Command Prompt".

Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd, and then press ENTER.

  • If the Bootrec.exe tool runs successfully, it presents you with an installation path of a Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type Yes. A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.

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.
