Hello, I am trying to trouble shoot a Toshiba
On the Toshiba A70 you should try holding down the fn key at lower left and pressing the F5 key which is the video transfer keyboard command for pretty much every Toshiba laptop. Otherwise, their little pictograms on the F keys almost always have a tiny representation of a laptop next to a monitor.
Hope this is helpful.

How to boost cooling fans on Toshiba SATELLITE A70
There is no way to "boost" the fans. I'm assuming the fan runs.
Buy a laptop cooler from a local store. They come with USB fans that will assist with cooling. Also, never use a laptop on anything but a hard surface, never on a blanket or on your lap.

Laptop wont even attempt to load windows??
With this kind of problem, you must put in the Windows software disk and boot. Then select repair Windows from the list. This option will attempt to correct the problem.
If you do not have the disc, boot into the repair / diagnostic mode from the boot screen. See if there is an option to create boot disks.

3. Select "Repair Your Computer ".
4. A windows will open, select "Comlpete PC Restore" Or "Full Factory Recovery" option.
5. Follow the instructions.
6. It will ask you to "Select the Recovery Location / Drive" Or "Insert the Recovery CD/DVD"!
7. Now, the recovery process will start. It will take about 30-45 minutes.
8. You will get the options like : "Partition all drives", "Format all drives", "Fromat System drive (C: drive)", etc.
9. Select only "Format system drive (C: drive)". This helps you to prevent erasing your data on other drives (like, D: ,E: ,F: , etc) .
10. The system will restart multiple times and you will get message "Recovery Successful"!
11. Don't forget to create a 'Restore Point' after successful recovery...it will help later in case of any crash!
tell me if it helps...tc! :)

Toshiba satellite A70-KL1 notebook shuts down
Scan the Computer using any latest updated anti virus program for any potential threat.
If the computer is not infected by any virus or trojan then you may also try performing System restore to the time when the Computer worked normally.
If the Computer keeps shutting down randomly after turning ON then the Power Supply Unit in the Notebook requires service.

My tosiba a70-kl1 starts up with a black screen
You haved enabled the capability for your computer to "boot" itself by reading from a boot-server connected to your network-cable.
But, the network-cable is unplugged, resulting in the "check cable" message.
What this _could_ mean is that the computer primarily tried, and failed, to boot from your disk-drive, and secondarily tried, and failed, to boot from your CD-ROM, and so it made a tertiary triy, which failed, to boot from the "network", i.e., that your hard-drive is not functioning.
Reboot, and enter "BIOS setup", and disable the "boot from network" option, to get rid of those error-messages. But, it's still possible that your disk-drive is malfunctioning.

sounds like you have ati graphics,make sure you are using the right driver,there are a lot of them,is there a graphics program in the add remove programs that you are forgetting about,,try uninstalling all the monitors in the device manager along with the display driver,if nothing works just boot to windows disc on restart using f12 or whatever key gives you the one time boot menu,and repair or reinstall xp,how are you planning to flash bios?be very carefull! if you cant even get windows to boot up,but you can still access the bios on restart,the bios arent your problem,its windows xp,try repair option first otherwise delete all partitions on hd,create new partition format and start fresh,good rule of thumb if the comptuer turns on and you can access the bios,then leave the bios alone!set them to factory default reinstall windows then when your up and running get the correct bios upgrade and flash good luck
