Laptop computers have power saver features that will blank the screen after a period of no input. Default on these can be as short as one minute. Users can change these settings to avoid screen blanking, especially when doing thins like watching movies or streaming video. The power saver feature may be different, and thus the screen shut off timer may be different when the unit is plugged in.

When did the problem start? Did it ever work? What operating system are you using?

If the problem occured recently, you might be able to use System Restore to get it working again. Within Windows, click on Start then Run. Type msconfig then click the System Restore Button. Choose a date when the sound worked.

It would help to know if the problem persists, so that a possible hardware glitch can be troubleshot

If you see your HDD lights working and can tell that the PC is doing something such as spinning the drives, and such, try looking very closely at the screen from different angles and even with a light in hand. You may be able to see some action on the screen or even your desktop, eventually. If you can faintly see PC operations taking place on the laptop, then the issue is the backlight. This means a screen replacement. You can also plug an external monitor up to the unit for a test.

Most likely, assuming your system disc is operational, you need to do a hard disk reset. The easiest way to do this is to delete any partitions that appear while doing the install, and doing a "fresh" install. This removes the partitions that are in the lower level of the hard disk drive. AKA - Low Level Format

I agree with Ginko. I had one that someone brought to me, and I removed the CMOS battery. This one was actually soldered to the motherboard. I melted the solder, removed contact to the motherboard, and re-soldered the battery to the motherboard. This fixed it.

Just a couple suggestions, the recovery disks seldom work if there is a virus or a hardware problem, you may need to contact our phone support to walk you through this one as we will need a lot more info. Try safe mode and see if you can do a system restore, if it will allow you to get into the "restore" program you may be able to save yourself a re formatting, also there is usualy if not always a partition on the hard drive of laptops made in the last few years, that will allow you to restore it to original condition. As you restart "and you may need to start and restart several times, look at the bottom of the screen for a mesage that reads something like for system restore press F- "and a key". You may get lucky and be able to get it back

if you turn the laptop over there are usually 1 or 2 panels you can unscrew. unscrew them and take the old chips out by pulling the tabs on either side of the chips outwards. installation is the reverse of removal, they should just slide in.

Overclock can be done by setting fsb higher by percentage to speed up cpu frequency by percentage. But some cpu can not be overclocked and may overheat and shut down. And some drams can not be changed to higher fsb.

Go into the BIOS and check if the BIOS detects the hard disk. If not then most likely the hard disk has failed and the hard disk needs to be replaced then Windows needs to be installed on the new hard drive plus the Toshiba M115 device drivers and your programs/software.
