Black screen on startup - Satellite A200


I have a new Satellite A200-25 x (2 months). Sometimes when I start the work of hard drive, the light is also on, but I have a black screen. The same may appear after a sleep mode.

Could someone help me and tell what is the problem?


I put t know what s wrong but I know the solution ;)

Many users here in the forum have confirmed that the update of the BIOS solves this annoying problem.

Take a look on the page of European driver of Toshiba. Choose the BIOS compatible and right and then update.

It should help!

  • Black screen on startup Satellite A80

    I get a black screen at startup what is the problem and what is the solution for it? It might have something to do with the cold?

    Hi poly

    Please put more details on the problem, because it s not easy to say what has happened without any detailed information. You hear the operation of the HARD disk or fans?
    Switch you to other devices to display, before this problem occurs?
    Unfortunately it FN + F5 key combination doesn't work if the operating system has started so it could be a malfunction of the equipment. I don t think you can solve this problem by yourself. In this case, the only way is to contact the service.

  • Black screen on startup - Satellite P100-350


    I bought a Satellite P100-350 2 years and a few months it sometimes does not further the "toshiba" sign at the start, the hard drive does not. If I then press the Start button on the computer, it stops immediately. (I can't press it for 5 seconds as they normally do when it works properly).

    In this case, when that I raise, I lorsque que je le relance, je revois see the toshiba screen and a message asking me if I want to start windows with the last configuration and if I do, it opens the windows and everything works fine...
    I checked, I don't think I have a virus...

    I read also some other posts on the topic and updated the bios as advised but it changed nothing!
    What kind of pain is it? The energy supply, bios, operating system,...?

    Thanks for your help!

    It's hard to say... How good are you with computers? Do you think you could do a diagnosis on your machine?

    I suggest to download the 'Ultimate Boot CD 4 Win' and check your RAM/disk hard/chipset/etc... on the malfunctions by doing some tests with the applications on the "UBCD4Win.

    Otherwise, I recommend giving the machine to someone who has some idea on laptops and allow him to check everything.

  • Satellite A305-S6898 - half black screen at startup

    I bought this laptop in early March and had to return to store due to a problem at startup when half of the screen would be black on the Windows login screen. They ordered me a new I got about 3 weeks ago and I used it for about a week before I had the same problem of a half black screen on startup.

    Now he has been running really slow and there is a time, I've had it freeze on me and my screen turn into a bunch of colored lines.
    I had to reboot in safe mode and run a virus scan just to make sure it wasn't my problem.

    I do not download anything on this computer other than basic messengers and photo editing programs.
    I have a HP MP7170N desktop computer which I use to download everything that seems to work faster than the laptop and I use photo, download torrents programs and store most of my pictures and music on this one and it has only 1 GB of memory compared to this the 4 GB.

    What is the problem?
    Anyone have any ideas as to what I can do.
    I can't really go back to the shop because they give only a grace period of 14 days for returns.

    > I had the same problem of a half black screen on startup.
    > Now he has been running really slow and there is a time, I've had it freeze on me and my screen turn into a bunch of colored lines.

    Doesn't look good for me it sounds a bit like graphic problem.
    Before contacting a professional Toshiba authorized service provider would be, it would be interesting to know if you have seen improvements after recovery procedure and BIOS updated.
    I think you n t get a recovery disk because you can create it using the verification of software preinstalled Toshiba manual how to create the recovery disk

    If, after installing new check usability of portable and so similar issues still persists.
    If nothing will change it s is strongly recommended to communicate with an ASP.

  • Satellite A100 - black screen on startup

    For two days my laptop Toshiba A100-495 / model-No. PSAA9E-18F047GR / Y6065357Q with Windows XP SP3 serial shows a black screen at startup. There is still no picture Windows startup.

    The laptop is all starting, but after finishing and be ready for use, the screen is always black. When I am pressing Fn + F5 keys, the desktop appears.

    The black screen is only starting cold after stopping, not awareness of standby or pause.

    > When I am pressing Fn + F5 keys, the desktop appears

    It seems that the display output is set to external monitor
    You see the Toshiba start screen if the laptop is connected to the external monitor?
    Check it!

    In addition, I am agree with Akuma BIOS should be the default value.
    To access the BIOS F2 press while turning on the laptop. I hope that you can do this then press F9 for default settings and then exit the BIOS save settings.

  • B540 TDR and black screen on startup

    Hi all, I bought a B540 in April a power works fine until end of July when it began to show the error "display driver has stopped working and has recovered." a few days later I let him (I have need as a wifi station to connect devices remove) and after a few hours of work, when I came back, the screen was off and there wa no way to turn it on. I press the power button for a few seconds to turn off the pc and he died. When I turned on, the computer started but the screen is off (not the 'lenovo' logo was shown on the eve) but everything else seemed to work (play plug/unpluging usb external hard drive the sound of the carachteristic). I turned off again and wait ten minutes before the market again, this time above the 'lenovo' logo was shown, but it seems that the pc failed to boot win 8. I unlplugged everything, removed the power cord, wait an hour and after that all started ok but the error message "display driver stop" was still there. After this date the computer randomly starts ok or with the screen. Given that I do not use it intensively Isuspected some windows update to cause this strange behavior and I'm trying to use a point of restoration, until July 17, but the problem was still there. Then I removed all recent windows update of June on, and I realized that in one case, it was not possible (i.e. the "remove/uninstall" button not showed that KB). I googled around and found the subject KB has been reported to broken system and the only way to react was to use a DOS command to reatore a new installation of the system. I did and actually everything works ok for 2 days (one day, I actually use the PC all day to upload stuff to iternet it to work). Unfortunately, after that day, everything seems to repeat: new 'pilot not resposinding to display' and a black screen at startup.

    Please consider that the system is quite new and clean (only 3/4 months of life) and everything works fine until end of July. What do you suggest me?

  • Power outage during Vista SP2 install; black screen on startup of the PC


    I have a PC desktop Gateway which is no longer start after a power failure has occurred during the installation of Vista SP2. The computer displays the progress at the bottom indicator, then, before that can display the login screen, the screen goes black, with a white cursor. CTRL-Alt-Del and Ctrl-Shift-Esc do nothing.

    I tried without success to the following:

    * Safe Mode/Safe Mode control guest - boots to black screen new
    * Startup Repair - told me there is nothing wrong
    * System Restore - tells me there is no available restore points
    * System restore the OEM DVD - can not find hard drive
    * Re-install this is disabled because I can't start Windows Vista-

    There are * all * options other than wiping the disc/lose all my data? The PC is in a remote area and backup drive is not an easy thing to achieve.

    The PC is no longer under warranty of the bridge, and I understand that Microsoft supports is no longer installs OEM of Vista.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you


    I can tell you how to make bootable disks, but you already have a disk.

    He has changed since good means of XP repair install from disk by booting from it.

    I would add that info to disk Bootable repair, just in case your DVD is a factory of one computer.

    It's Vista only repair installation option these days.
    It must be switched on!
    Not much use, is it!

    Good luck with it.


    Download the ISO on the provided link and do a repair of the disc.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Above information shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use it.

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista Startup Repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.

    See you soon.

  • S7: black screen on startup

    S7, barely a month.  Order last night, left pending, lid and power cord plugged in.

    Today he won't move beyond a black screen at startup.  Starts with the start screen "Acer Explorer beyond the limits" and then just black.  However, I can see the pointer of couse to the screen and it can move with touchpad and mouse.

    I rebooted several times, power cord unplugged, etc..  No luck.

    Looking, seems I'm not the only one with this problem.

    Come on Acer, I dropped a lot of money on this machine!  Help, please!

    Here's how I fixed my problem as described in my original post (for now, anyway):

    Unplug the power apparatus.  Open the cover; computer will power on but go to black screen.

    Power off button on the side, but leave the lid open.

    Then, with (2) lid open (1) the computer turned off and unplugged from power cord (3), press and hold the power button / stop for 30 seconds.  Computer will be quickly implemented on and then turns off quickly (you'll see the Acer logo startup screen, but he died before entering the black screen).  Keep holding the power button / stop through all this for 30 seconds.

    At the end of 30 seconds, the computer will be (should be) off the coast.   Remove your finger from the power button / stop.  Leave lid open during all this.

    With lid open, connect the power cable.  Press the power button / stop as you normally would (you are not holding it this time) to turn on.

    Computer should start normally.

    Worked for me; It may be useful if you encounter the same problem.  I said that it has something to do with static buildup.

  • Pavillion dv6 6b15ed: Driverupdate to fix the black screen at startup windows 10!



    Is there a new driver is released for my AMD Radeon HD card 6755 2? (double grafics)

    Because the latest driver causes a black screen at startup. Sequence: wenn turn on u see hp and that start-up logo win 10 after that it crashes on a black screen for about 2 minutes, then start 10. (about 2, 5 minutes later)

    I have now installed a windows 8 (issues) driver and windows starts in 6 seconds (with normal hard drive).

    I can't play the games but the bootspeed is good.

    So is there a fix or is there is 1 entry?


    While the video card is not supported with the latest drivers.

    You can update as much if you want to, but isn't is not helping.

    Even in charge AMD said that this card is not supported with drivers.

    But today, I tried 1 times more, I used the old driver AMD_Display_13.352.

    With the first reboot, it was still black and some errors of the pilot, but after that the second quick start installation restarts!

    Appearance of the logo Windows 10 only 3 or 4 seconds and start immediately, without black screen and I got sound, video and video tube work as well.

    If other people having the same problem download Drivethelife and download the old pilot 13.352 and see for yourself.

    Make sure u delete all drivers previously installed with DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) of guru3d site.

    Almost forgot: I also disabled windowsupdate to prevend install other drivers (new).

  • Black screen at startup, unable to boot from the CD

    I did something wrong on my Thinkpad T43 2668, now I have Black Boot screen cannot Access IBM, can not press a function key, cannot start from the CD.  Here's what I did:

    1 got unwanted winxp sp3 updates automatic, then restored to the permeable point via Windows XP system restore, then, cannot start system; cannot boot from the Windows XP CD

    2 2 demarrer start from Linux Live CD, format hard drive and install ubuntu, hidden Partition of domain is not deleted, always there;

    3. can start Linux OS, but black screen on startup. There is no way to see what's happening at startup; Pressing a key of function or IBM bottons returns no result, always boot in Linux;

    4. cannot boot from any CD bootable legal except Ubuntu Live CD;

    5. no means of access Bios to set the boot sequence, therefore, cannot boot from USB floppy either.

    Advice is appreciated!

    PS. I tried Linux live CD some time ago before this trouble, click on "help me to boot from CD", got something installed. I guess it's something installed out of the box and that is why now I can boot from a Linux Live CD.

  • Satellite A200 - TJ5---> black screen at startup

    Hi all

    Here is the story:

    Yesterday I played poker with my laptop and suddenly the screen freeze. that is no more keyboard/mouse, time frozen.
    There is no battery in my laptop so I unplugged the power supply.

    When I plugged it in, I pushed the power button. Fan were to happen, the blue leds on the power cord, power came. The hard drive led will begin to Flash. But the screen was black! No backlight at all. The computer seemed to start as long as the hard drive light was lit more after 5 seconds or more.

    I made theses steps 3 - 4 times. No results.

    I managed to control memory, traded the sodimm 2 x 2 giga with sodimm 2x1gig, than i've got, same effect, stay at black screen. Restoration on this...

    WAITED 5 minutes without battery/power cord. Everything started on the right.

    I ran a memory diagnostic tool for 24 hours after that, no problem at all.
    I already have the latest version of the bios.

    In this forum I found the solution to be able to remove, let stand for 30 minutes and the black screen disappeared. But I don't think it's a long-term solution.

    I am concerned about this problem. (Black screen) because I understand that it is a hardware failure?
    Someone to know more about this kind of problem?

    Hmmm. eventually it s a hardware issue, but as you know it's really not easy to provide suggestions without any detailed portable /hardware controls.

    So if you want, you can contact the nearest ASP in your country and can ask for the portable diagnostic test.

    See you soon
