Coke spilled on Satellite Pro A100 - black screen & flashing light
I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite Pro A100, and this morning my daughter spilled coke top.
It was not much and it only seems to be on the top of the screen (as the laptop was closed)
However it was a bit on the keyboard and when I opened it it seemed to be a crackling sound from speakers?
I turned off and unplugged the power outlet and it was built next to the radiator for the last 4 hours,
I tried it again now and it started, there were still crackling and then the screen went black, but the 'on' will Flash blue, the capslock flashes as are the other two on the keyboard.
Is it buggered or is there anything i can do to fix it?
Any help would be apprciated.
My laptop couldn't t start because my girlfriend accidentally spilled water on the keyboard.
The laptop turns off and I was not in a position of power upward again.
Whenever LED books went ON and after a few seconds the laptop stop again.
I thought that the motherboard was dead, but I tried to replace the memory modules first and bingo!
One of the modules has been defective.
I replaced it and the laptop turned on properly.
I have a windows vista pro (PSAASE-00G004GR) satellite after turn on and typing the password for windows vista, the screen goes black but I see that the cursor moves & because it seems that the hard drive also works in th background, but I can't see anything except the mouse cursor , I tried to boor with other options (LAST WORK safe MODE KNOWN FEATURES... etc) but it's still the same only black screen and the cursor...
I do not prefer the product cause of my data recovery on this subject, any ideas?
You have the Satellite Pro A100 PSAAS hmm if you want to save your personal data, I recommend to remove the portable computer HARD drive and try connecting it to another computer via an external USB HDD controller. These cases of 2.5 HARD disk are not expensive and you can buy it in every store of the computer.
Then you could try to recover the laptop delivered together with the Toshiba Recovery CD.
But wait; have you tried to connect the laptop to the external display?
Maybe you could see something on the second screen.
I think that this procedure could be useful to clarify what s wrong.
To me this question looks like a small little dysfunction of the FL inverter.
In this case the installation of the new operating system will help you not to solve this problem.
But who knows the verification is necessary to find what could be wrong.
Good luck and bye ;)
I have a Satellite Pro A100 (psaase) and a blue screen appears some time it says image kernel memory and the only way out is to restart the laptop.
How can I fix? Can someone tell me what's wrong with it and how to fix it?
There are hundreds of causes BSOD. What is the BSOD STOP code?
I'm new to the forum and have a big problem.
So, any help is welcome and appreciated.
My Satellite Pro A200 turns black after the BIOS screen and a black screen with a blinking cursor.
Also just as the screen goes black a beep can be heard which shows windows boot.
I can access the toshiba Setup screen but not the installation of security mode.
Please go into the BIOS settings and check if the HARD drive is listed there.
The blinking cursor is a typical sign of a malfunction of the HARD drive.
Eventually the HARD drive is dead and you need to replace it and reinstall the operating system.

You wrote that you can access the BIOS, but have you checked if the HARD drive is recognized properly? Perhaps because the computer cannot start HDD isn't recognized then you should check this.
If the HARD drive is recognized, I would try a Toshiba Recovery disk recovery facility. It seems that Windows isn't able to start and if you reinstall the whole system should help get rid me of this. Go to the start menu and select the CD/DVD drive as a boot device.
Check this box!

I would appreciate your help with the following problem:
SYMPTOMS: The screen is black, but I see that there is a faint image in background.
I get a good picture in the external monitor.
I suspect, _among others_, there may be a faulty * cover sensor / switch *, but I have been unable to locate him, although I have disassembled the unit.
If anyone knows, please let me have the exact * location * where I should look for the switch.
> I think, among other things, that there may be a faulty lid switch/sensor
No, I do not think that its sensor problem.
I guess that the FL inverter is faulty.
The FL inverter controls the backlight of the LCD display module.
Therefore, this part should be checked and if necessary, it must be replaced.
It happens from time to time when I try to start my PLUA1E Satellite Pro U200-02802QS4, then I get a black screen even from the BIOS.
What is wrong and how to fix this?
BTW, I already have this BIOS version: P0044v370.exe installed.
This happens from time to time?
This means that you can not reproduce this problem?
Hmm that's not easy to say what the issue might be.
Maybe the BIOS update will help you at the moment you can find BIOS 3, 7 victory on the European driver Toshiba page.
If you have a lower BIOS version installed, then I recommend an update.
It is also possible that this problem is related to some of the material; motherboard, screen, etc.
In this case the part should be replaced but first of all it of necessary to know what part is affected and I think that the technician of the ASP for this
What do you think???
When my laptop start, after it shows the press f2 or f12 and then from windows, it goes to a black screen with the cursor blink.
The lights are on at the front, but there is no activity on the hard disk, such as the indicator light does not blink.
Need help. Thank you.
I think that your HARD drive is dead.
You need to replace the HARD drive with a new 2.5 SATA HDD.
Replace the HARD drive and install the OS by using Toshiba recovery disc.
I hope you ve created one in the past
My niece has used his Toshiba L450D for almost a year now and he really liked it, who was until last month. She turned on her laptop and when she presses the button of the mouse, the button cracked and he fell into the laptop.
Now my brother contacted Toshiba and I was told because it is under warranty it might return for repair because it was a common fault. Then he he packed in loads of air bubbles and a box to make sure it was safe.
A few weeks later he came back repaired but we were all shocked that the laptop was put in a very loose box and you could hear this rattling noise. When we turned on the battery was flat and we had a new boot menu.
As she installed it Windows 7 laptop would boot directly into Windows 7, but now after the repair of the laptop shows a menu black screen with as follows:
+ Windows 7 +.
+ Recover Windows to Factory Settings [active EMS] +.
So we started in Windows and everything went well, but now after 5 or 10 or even 20 minutes, laptop displays a black screen and will not respond to keys or mouse movement. There is nothing on the screen its just black.
I started in SafeMode (which was more difficult with the new menu) and it does the same thing. I even managed to do a virus scan quick who took 3-4 minutes and was clean.
I would like some advice on what my niece is very angry, and it's difficult to explain what is happening to a child in the primary school.
Any help would be grateful.
Have you tried the option of HARD drive recovery?
If this is not the case, try to set the notebook back to factory settings using HARD drive recovery.
Turn on the device, press F12, choose repair my computer, then select Toshiba HDD recovery.
I hope it will work!

> During a game for half an hour, the screen darkens and a second view later, I get a blue screen.
Well, my first thought is that this problem is related to the graphics driver.
I mean it could be a software problem.
But I know that a BSOD can also occur if the graphics card chip began to malfunction.
In your case I m not sure what could cause this problem. But to play a game, that the GPU is running with a maximum yield and produce a lot of heat. If the temperature rises to a higher level the GPU can also cause a BSOD.
Anyway, first of all, you must check if the graphics card driver update could solve this problem.
Maybe you could use a driver from other websites but please note that this is ONLY possible at your peril!
Hi, I recently bought a new satellite pro a100 with XP pre-installed-one of my main reasons to choose this as the price was the built-in s-video connector so I can get my screen up on my tv. However, I have not yet got it working and you'd be grateful for all the assistance.
It is connected to my TV via a s-video cable, connected to an s-video/SCART adapter to work. Nothing is display on the screen and in the ATI displays the setting, control panel is the only option that is imparted to me. The other 2, including television are grayed out.
Maybe something needs to be configured, but I have not found information of any use yet.
As far as I know avoid any problems if you want to connect the laptop to the TV. After connecting, please use the FN + F5 key combination and get on TV.
It can happen that picture will be black and white, but it is because S-video in on television port is not enabled.
Have had my Satellite Pro A100 for almost 2 years and that all this time have never even heard of a password system, but all of a sudden, I turned on the laptop this morning and it does not load. I tried pressing F12 (can't remember why, it seemed the thing to do to read the instructions at the bottom of the screen), but nothing happened so I just turned off the power. Put on again, he asked the system password. (A black screen with a blue box, with the old text base BACK type fonts).
I have no idea what it could be, I tried the word system and tried just pressing on enter without text in there but it says incorrect password. I removed the battery and left 10 hours but put it back in the machine there is no difference, it will not always go through this screen.
I am the only user on this machine, have no idea what caused it. I am aware of security, have installed on complete McAfee AV and did not have anything odd happen at all. Didn't last changes made to the configuration, no new software etc. so I have no idea what prompted it.
Can anyone help please?
Thanks in advance
This password seems to be a BIOS password, but I have no idea why this password is displayed if you have never defined it.
Unfortunately, there is not a lot to see the BIOS password can be removed without the help of an ASP.
Then, contact the service provider allowed in your country and request removal of the password.
I also recommend updating the BIOS after the technician removed the password.
Do you know how to find the ASP closest?

I updated the BIOS on my Satellite Pro A100 and since I get the following message after about 30-40 minutes of navigation:
"The connection was reset".

I get a similar message using other browsers. Still, the only way I can get online is to restart my computer. Other computers in the House work perfectly at the same time, this message appears.
Any suggestins/help will be greatly appreciated.
Who knows what happened to your computer? Have you tried to restore the firewall settings or factory settings? Otherwise, there can be question of updating the Bios, if you downgrade BIOS, it can bring the system with white screen crash.
After a week off, the Toshiba Satellite Pro A100-080 (PSAASE-00G004GR, 4 GB RAM) of my kids start not anymore.
When turn on/off the system, he * will beep 3 times * (one long, two short beeps), the HDisk light flashes 'blue' and then nothing more. A/c and battery power LED are 'blue', which seem to be OK status.
No other useful help, as the screen remains dark.
We had upgraded to 4 GB MEM (Kingston) a year ago and I already tried the old used 1 GB (included with purchase) or the replacement of 2 x 1 GB since December 2007, but equal status with these modules. This is not
a defect of memory.
I hope that this is not the motherboard, probably only the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 graphics included adapter?
Does anyone have an idea what could be the problem?
Thx for a short help.
Generally this type of beep codes are hardware related or with other words, hardware is defective. So I think it's a hardware problem and an ASP must check your laptop computer to identify the cause of this.
On the Toshiba site, you will find a list of aspic:

I have a PSAACE-00V002EN Satellite Pro A100.
I seem to have a problem with the touchpad - he decides for itself I want to minimize a window when I click in the page (web browsers, etc.). I could try to use the scroll bar or click a link but is not what I want it - it will minimize or expand to full screen. Sometimes it doesn't let me select anything or put my cursor in a text entry box.
I installed the latest synaptics drivers but this does not at all affect.
The same problem occurs when you use the external USB mouse?
Did you install the 3rd party applications that could have a bad influence on the work of touchpad?
You know, it s interesting to know if this happens on the operating system that was fresh installed on the laptop
