Troubleshooting Toshiba Satellite P205-S6267

I get the same thing. Hard drive light flashes for a sec, the power light comes on, and then the disk drive wants to read a disk. After that, nothing happens. No monitor stuff, no bios, nothing! I hooked it up to an external monitor and still nothing. What gives??

Is the laptop getting extremely hot on the bottom.
Could be thermal shut down (keeps the cpu from meltdown temperatures)

Had disks got only one light. When flashes rendomly, normally means it's doing a read / write operation.

Blow out the dust in and around the fan(s)
replace the AC power cord and/or battery.
replace hard drive
and the big one replace Motherboard (which i done once in my lifetime)*

My hd has started alternately flashing blue/red AND beeping. I tried a different power source, but it is still doing the same thing. Suggestions PLEASE!


Disassemble the enclosure.
Remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer.
If it can be read, then the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure has failed -- buy a new and "empty" enclosure (about $30) and mount your disk-drive into that unit.
If it cannot be read, then the disk-drive has "died".
Check its warranty-status, to see if you qualify for a free replacement.

The blue light does not come on the red power light flashes and the red power light flashes i see nothing on the lap top


it might have been dropped, if so it could have bent the little read pin inside causing it to not be able to function correctly, those little harddrives cant take a very big hit

I am not getting power to the external hard drive. when i plug in the ac adapter, i get a flashing green light on the adapter but no power to the disk. could the ac adapter be bad?


It's probably _NOT_ the AC adapter, given that the lamp is "green".

Disassemble the casing, and temporarily connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if the disk itself is still functioning & its files can be read.

Hp laptop computer will not boot up. The power comes on and you can not hear the hard drive start spinning - no hard drive clicking either. You can hear the fan start blowing....but nothing on the lcd...


You hit the problem right on the head, NO BOOT. All computers have to have a system disk to read whether it is on a floppy or hard drive. your computer is not reading your hard drive. It either is really screwed up from the boot, or it has been formated and has nothing to read. Try installing a new copy of windows or inserting some type of bootable disk. if that works, Install your windows operating system. Insert a disk in your D drive or your CD drive letter and turn the computer off, restart the computer and the disk should boot your computer. Good Luck.

Turns on but nothing else


I have been using this hard disk for about 6 months now. It stopped working. The power and the usb cable are connected. I use Windows Xp and it doesnt read it. And for some reason most of the time when i open 'my computer' and the hard disk usb cable is plugged in 'my computer' stops responding !! However the 'safely remove disk' icon comes on the task bar and i can remove it from there. But i cant read it from explorer. The light on the HD keeps blinking. It reads my friends HD and flash drive. Please help me.
