A60 SP does not start

I have a satellite pro A60 which was working fine yesterday, but today will not start. The first time that I turned it on this morning it showed the home toshiba screen, then the screen went black with a cursor flashing at the top left, but would not respond. Then, I pressed the power button to turn it off.

Now when I try to turn it on, I just get a black screen, and there is no answer. Any ideas? I'll be able to avoid loss of data from the hard drive?

Hi Jamie,

When you turn on your laptop see you or hear any activity at all? The Red Toshiba start screen appears normally during the initial POST, that is when the BIOS is loaded and components are tested.

You should then notice some activity HD (possibly preceded by optical drive) as the operating system itself is loaded from disk.

How your laptop hold?

  • Satellie Pro A60 EN does not start

    My satellite Pro A60EN does not start. When I turn on the power there is a slight click, but it does not read the disk. If I boot with a bootable CD, it starts the CD/DVD drive, but does not start. The HARD drive is OK, as I tried it on my desktop (using an IDE USB connnector).
    East - the CPU, motherboard or RAM?
    Any help much appreciated.


    To find out what s wrong some diagnostic tests are needed.
    If you checked the HARD drive and if it s ok so I guess there must be something wrong with the motherboard. But it is worth checking to be sure 100%.
    The fact is that the motherboard is an expensive piece and you should check it out before you replace something.
    Sorry I put t see any other solution.

  • Satellite A60-672 does not start after upgrading memory


    I bought an additional memory for my laptop, but after installing it the PC will start is no longer, when I turn it on it makes a brief noise then nothing. After taking the memory expansion out again once, the laptop still does not start.



    I agree with "guy sos." There is no doubt motherboard problem now. I assume you used the incompatible memory module.

    In any case, contact the after-sales Service of Toshiba partner in your country and explain to them the situation. The address that you will find under http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_gaspLocator.jsp?pf=true

  • Satellite A60-106 does not start

    Can anyone help? When I turn on my A60 106 it happens with a text screen that says Windows (XP) will not start and a few basic instructions. There are 5 options listed - Safe Mode - Safe Mode with network - safe mode with command prompt - known last good configuration - and start Windows normally. None of them work, computer goes to the Windows XP logo normally then flashes to the toshiba logo, after what the power seems to cut and it is up to the text with the options screen. Which if left constantly looping. All the ideas!

    Hey Warren,

    Whenever I encountered this behavior it is always caused by a defective hard drive. Indeed the system cannot be loaded because the required files can be read from the HD.

    You can try to re - install your recovery CD system in the hope that it is just the files that have been corrupted, but if this also fails then a new HD will be required.

  • Ieee 1394 host controller Texas Equium A60-692 does not start


    I have a Toshiba Equium A60-692 about 2 years old. On rare occasions the above will install and also the network/ethernet card etc with it when it starts. But 99% of the time it fails to start upward.

    Tech from Toshiba tell me it's the CMOS battery, but time slept OK for the last week so maybe it could be something else. Other strange things are can only recognize the drive HARD to start from what IDE Standard is chosen in the BIOS options (Enhanced IDE option and I think only used normal overall, ups causes boot errors). Also a green screen with weird graphics on occasion. Also the speed of the processor can be reduced, as shown in the properties of my computer.

    Any ideas from anyone as worried of wasting time to unsolder the battery if this isn't the problem. Could this be a fault of the motherboard that is irreparable? I am a relative novice if need help someone here. This made me!


    I think you might be right. Eventually he s a small part on the motherboard that could malfunction.
    If I m not mistaken the controller IEEE 1394 Texas Instruments could be the Firewire port and it s part of the mobo

  • Equium A60-173 does not start after the BIOS update

    Hello people,

    I downloaded a BIOS updated toshiba for my Equium A60 - 173 and while it was loading on, restarted my laptop. Now, whenever I turn it on, the power light comes on for a few seconds, there is nothing on the screen and then it turns off again. I'm really worried, I've done some serious damage. I know a bit of the BIOS, but not that much. I need help, this is how I put a BIOS on here if I can't turn it on and the current one is damaged. Is it possible to get the loaded BIOS on without being able to turn it on?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.


    You could try to remove the battery, wait 2 minutes and then go back, however he only its not very likely that your BIOS update was not successful. If I remember correctly when I flashed my A60-181 this process takes about 10 minutes. If your laptop prematurely reloaded until the program has finished, I'm afraid you have no choice but to send new to Toshiba to be fixed.

  • A60 Windows XP does not start

    When XP does not start, he spends just continually rebooting.
    None of the options to restore the last known good configuration or from different modes of security work.
    The error message is:-
    The Microsoft Knowledge base says that XP CD-ROM to access the Recovery Console is necessary before running chkdsk/r, but because XP was installed by Toshiba OEM factory, is not available.
    Can someone guide me to a solution.

    Dave Cox

    Hi Dave,.

    If you don't already have a bootable CD, then you will need to create one (using another PC of course). Try to Google for "Ultimate Boot CD". It contains many tools and utilities and can even be bought if you don't have the means to burn your own version.

    You will need the means to back up your data once you have access to your HARD disk, although you can see as you drive is inaccessible in any case. This will depend on exactly what the problem is with him.

    To boot from the CD (without changing your BIOS) Toshiba have a shortcut. Simply hold down the 'C' key while turning on your laptop and the device will try to boot from the CD-ROM. It also works with the recovery CD.

    Good luck

  • Black MacBook does not start

    I have a 10 year old black Macbook, which does not start when a battery is installed.  If it is connected without battery installed, it lights up, but if there is a battery in it, even if it is plugged in, it will get the startup sound and the screen of the Apple gray, then turn off.  I got a new battery and charge it where the charger turned green, but the results are the same.

    Any suggestions?

    It is difficult to say what is happening with this machine, since the time and wear are considerations. I don't know what version of the operating system that you use, but there is a sequence of things you should do - in order of severity.

    I assume you mean a USB hub? What does do when it's plugged in? It starts successfully when the hub is not plugged? If so, I would say that something is wrong with the hub or there is a problem with the port it is plugged or something plugged into the hub.

    Try to plug it into a different USB port on your Mac.

    It is possible that your firewall or other security software blocks or limit Firefox or plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after the detection of changes (update) for the Firefox program.

    Delete all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container in the permissions list in the firewall and allow your firewall to ask permission to get access full and unrestricted, again to install for Firefox and the plugin-container and the update process.
