Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
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
