Question about Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook
Hi, I have a Toshiba A60 Equium that wont start up. Currently, when powering up, the blue powerlight around the power button illuminates, I can here the dvd rw initilise but the screen stays blank and the machine does not make any other startup sounds. It does not beep, etc. I can not switch it off either and have had to remove mains power and the battery. This problem is consistent. Prior to this: -------------- The problem originated when I attempted to update the HID device driver within Windows XP Device manager, I clicked the [update driver] button but the machine froze. After 10 minutes I powered down by holding the power button. It hasn't started up since. This all started with intermittent keyboard and mousepad/trackpad problems whereby the keyboard / or mouse failed to work intermittently, requireing restarts. Please help! Thank you.
Similar problem some time back and removing the battery for a while then re-inserting it did the trick.
It is worth a try.

It may be possible to startup in safe mode(press F8 on boot up) and highlight 'Last Known Good Configuration' or highlight 'Start Windows in Safe Mode. If this gets you up try a system restore to before you updated driver or look for the system recovery folder, normally on another partition of your hard drive, that is if you didn't get a recovery cd. If you are not able to get up and running you will need your Windows Installation Disc to either repair the system or do a complete re installation by putting in cd whilst you boot up. It may also be that your HDD is damaged and thats why you can hear the cd drive powering up, looking for a system disc, as it cannot find Windows.
