Your laptop is on of several models that has had the warranty extended till November, due to power issues. If you haven't already, I strongly suggest you contact Toshiba directly with your complaint, and advise them you wish to have it repaired under the extended warranty for the M30-35 series laptops. Just go to the Toshiba service site, you can't miss it. Good luck BTW, I've sent at least 6 units in for repair on this extention. Their service is top notch and usually I received the unit back in less than 5 days.

There are a number of possible causes. First of all an engineer would check your A/C Adapter is working properly. If you havent got access to a meter try borrwing a charger from somebody that is the same voltage and pin type. Another likely possibility id a loose D/C socket. I would recommend taking it to a Dedicated laptop repair place not a PC repair because they wont be able to correctly diagnose. Good Luck

My dell laptop keeps going back and forth from the loading logo screen to black screen


You might like to Power it off completely by removing the Battery for a few seconds.
If that doesn't help, try booting from your Win7 Installation Disk.

How to put in sata hdd in an acer aspire X3200


Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case, sit the laptop on it's side and look for the hard drive in a bay. The drive will have 2 cables going into it, one for the Power coming from the power supply and the other is the SATA Interface Cable that will come from the motherboard. SATA Cables are slim flat cables, most times they are colored red, blue or black. Remove the cables from the hard drive, remove the screws if any are holding it in a bay, sometimes there may be plastic rails that hold the drive in the bay (especially on Dell Computers, most times the rails are green or blue). Sometimes there may be a need to remove the bay to get to the drive. If so there will be a screw or two holding the bay in place.

Once removed, put your new drive in, put all the cables in place then reboot to your Operating System Disk to load windows on it. After windows is loaded check your drivers in the device manager, if any are missing, download and install them. Then start loading you application programs.

This is a hard drive issue, remove hardware and reseat it back into place, sometimes this will work and run fine. But it is more than likely your hard drive will need to be replaced.

The computer could not read your copy of Windows from your disk-drive.

Either:
* there is no electrical power getting to the disk-drive (check the power cable)
* the "data" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive is faulty or not-connected (check it)
* the power-supply in your computer is not supplying power to the disk-drive (try different power-supply)
* the disk-drive itself has "failed" (maybe, the motor that spins the disk-drive has failed)

Take your computer to a professional technician for trouble-shooting.

I own a Toshibe Satellite L350D-215 running windows 7, when I power on the laptop it brings up the Toshiba welcome screen then loads a screen stating that there is or has been a problem and you have...


Sounds like you need to run the recovery disk

If your have the Recovery Disk put it in and boot from cd/dvd,
[Push "F12" at the Toshiba boot screen to access the Boot Menu]

you will loss all your info,,

to save your info [pic's] you will need to plug your hard drive into a desktop with sata.. and back up you info that way then run the disk


if you dont have the disk you will need to get a new windows 7 dvd or contact toshiba for a new Recovery Disk set,

Some times they put the Recovery on the hard drive but i think you need the disk with this one.

Black screen


Does it boots windows? If the screen gets blank after Windows booting up, you can try repairign the OS. If the whole unit doesnt boot up, then the hardware must be in problem. Check the Hard disk, the power supply and the RAM.

Thank you!

The laptop doesn't boot up always.


I would try the following:
1. Remove the battery completely. If the computer boots properly several times in a row, then the battery may be causing the power supply to do strange things.
2. If you have experience removing laptop components, try removing the hard drive. Because you say the screen goes black (I assume the system powers off) sometimes after the HP logo, I doubt its Windows or a software issue.
3. If HP has a diagnostic CD you can boot to, try that.
4. It may be the power supply acting up. If it charges the battery, and if you can boot to Windows with the battery, try getting a new power supply.
5. Otherwise, it may be the motherboard of the laptop.

Toshiba satellite with windows xp will only show black sreen and wont let windows xp repair


Your description of the symptom shows that your operating system installation has been corrupted. Fastest and easiest way to resolve the Issue using the "Recovery and application disk" (it comes with laptop) to perform full system recovery. I would like to remind you full system recovery will erase everything saved on Hard drive. You can check possible option on http://support.toshiba.com

If you dont have recovery and application disk you get one. You can call Toshiba @ 1-800-457-7777

Please post if you need further assitance

Good Luck
