Satellite A200 - white screen with 3 beeps


My Toshiba Satellite A200 was recently gives me a white screen with 3 beeps at every start. I took it to my friend for repair and they told me that I had to take the battery out and put it so that it starts. It worked for him, but not me. I called technical support and told me it was a hardware problem with the memory or the motherboard.

Anyone have the same problem and know what to do? I wouldn't mind not check memory myself I don't know where to start...

Thank you

Hi hpthinker,

I think the support that you called is right and it s a hardware problem. Perhaps with memory or the motherboard

The best way to fix this would be new modules of RAM because they can be easily replaced in a few minutes and are not expensive nowadays.
Just so buy new modules of RAM in your local computer store, or ask your authorized service provider for this problem. They can offer you new RAM modules and you can test it again.

By the way: If you have two RAM modules, test it with a module only.

  • Satellite A200 - black screen with two beeps

    Date: October 17, 2009

    I have Toshiba Satellite laptop computer * model A200 PSAFCA-01400J *. I am facing a problem of * completely black screen * (I can't see any image either). It happened twice more than the screen wouldn't turn on by moving the mouse or the touchpad. To turn on the screen I had to restart the computer. The screen worked well until it turns off again. Since it does not turn on even after I restarted my computer several times. I noticed that my * Windows vista home premium * load properly I can hear audio that indicates that I am ready to open a session. I also noticed the sound signal after slipping my finger on the sensor attesting that I connected successfully, but the screen remains black.

    When I turn on my computer, I noticed that it sounds two beeps, first beep is short and the second beep is relatively long. I tested the cover closing the cover switch and noticed that my computer goes into sleep mode and by opening the cover that Eve turns off and my computer turns on again; but the screen remains black. One of my friends suggested that the backlight of the screen inverter or the lid switch is defective. Can someone tell me what could be the problem and what do the two beep codes?

    Thank you

    Hi mate,

    Normally the beep codes at the start of average that it s something wrong with the hardware of your laptop. As Akuma said, maybe the graphics card or RAM must be replaced or other parts too.

    Have you already tried to connect an external monitor? You can see a picture on this subject?
    I don't know but maybe what he s m only internal something wrong with the monitor.

    In any case, I think you should contact a service provider for help. Technicians can check the laptop and fix it for you.

  • Satellite A200 - white screen and gel

    Hi Experts,

    I have this machine for 2 years. It was no problem. Last month, he began to display a white screen, and at the same time, it has been frozen after 3-4 hours running. Push the power button to restart, it fozen soon. I replaced a new fan and cleaned the dust inside. But the problem is still there. Someone has ideas what is the problem?

    Thanks in advance.


    The issue appears only after a long period of use is good?
    Eventually the higher temperature affects the graphics chip.
    The question would appear again until the graphics chip to cool
    This is my theory
    What do you think about this?

    It could also be a RAM problem anything is possible and that is why each part must be verified
    In your case, I recommend you to contact a technician for laptop. The guys could check the parts. I mean it of better to check the hardware, then replace only the defective part rather than buy parts and hoped that the replacement would solve the problem.

    But listen buddy; If the graphics card chip is really affected then replace the motherboard and this could be a costly affair!

  • Satellite L550 - black screen with mobile cursor on startup

    Hello world

    I have a Win7 of Toshiba Satellite Pro l550-17u with a startup problem, black screen with a cursor, but not going beyond.

    Tried to reset the default values on initial F2 menu configuration
    Tried to boot in safe mode and the safe mode with networking
    I tried Repair computer option
    Tried the restore advanced user
    Tried to load the recovery disk
    Tried to boot the laptop directly from the disc
    Tried to remove the battery, but made no difference

    When I get the white screen with the cursor, I tried a few things mentioned.
    Ctrl + alt + delete to get the Task Manager, but nothing.
    Pushin' Win + R to open the Run dialog box, but it does not work.
    Click on SHIFT 5 times quickly to get ticky key opened to get to the Control Panel, but it did not work for me.

    Last night did not turn on my laptop turned off but when opened I received a message that my system has recovered from a serious error, you click on close and then it turned off my laptop had this problem since.

    Next step i think I can reinstall the memory but don't really want to start taking it to bits.

    I also have a large amount of data I really want out of the hard drive. any suggestions?

    Any help or suggestions much appreciated


    To be honest, for me it looks like a Windows problem. Maybe something messed with the registry and Windows can start t more

    I think that you must restore windows recovery disk Toshiba you wrote that you have tried to load the restore disc but what happened after that? Can start the installation of recovery? If so, you should do this.

    Backup, you can do if you buy an external HARD drive enclosure. Remove the HARD drive and install in the case of HARD drive. Now you can connect to another computer.

  • My iPod Nano has a white screen with messages I've ever seen


    I'm having a problem connecting my iPod Nano (5th generation 8 GB) to my Macbook Pro (mid-2009 with El Capitan OS). I tried to restore my iPod nano with iTunes. Restore failed, and my iPod Nano screen has changed to a white screen with a message "do not disconnect". I couldn't eject the device, so I had to unplug the iPod with this message that appears. When I disconnected the iPod a black check mark appears on the white screen with a message "Ok to disconnect". The only way to get this message go away is to lock the screen of the iPod nano, and then unlock it. Then I press and hold the Center button and menu button simultaneously for 8 seconds and the Apple logo appears. Then shortly after, a "Use iTunes to restore" message on the iPod nano. I reconnect the iPod on my Mac and the white screen with a message 'do not disconnect' returns to the top. iTunes does not recognize the iPod. I don't know what else I can do to get my Mac to recognize the device and add songs using iTunes. IPod Nano was working fine a few hours ago, and my Macbook recognized until I tried to restore it in iTunes. It's very frustrating. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Here are pictures of the messages from my iPod nano's display.

    IPod Nano was working fine a few hours ago, and my Macbook recognized until I tried to restore it in iTunes.

    What was the (initial) reason, you had to do this restoration (before this problem occurred)?

    Try to put the iPod in Disk Mode.

    Put the iPod in disk - Apple Support Mode

    Launch iTunes and connect the iPod to the Mac.  If iTunes picks it up, he may ask you to do a restore with a message on the "recovery."  Tell iTunes to do a restore.  After the full restoration , see if the iPod works normally.

  • white screen with lines

    I came here because I believe that it is a combination of several mistakes, I don't know.

    When I start the computer in Standard Win2k3, it gives me a white screen with Vibrio black vertical lines across on the screen, with a few horizontal. After some tests, I want to pretend it works, you press Ctrl + Alt + Delete and connected and surprisingly, the computer works - I can see the icon and the load of desk top of the page to the top, BUT the white screen is still there, the bars into brackets upward the desktop icons and the resolution is so low that I only see a small part. Moreover that apparently all workstations had been 'forced' layer on layer on the screen, as I see multiple cursors on the screen all at the same time movement and rhythm (when I move the mouse).

    The next thing that I checked, is since I have installed WinXP, but as if by magic will not work some of my programs (this is why I use it), and the screen has worked very well and very well (with almost nothing, runnable).

    Well, can not compare the two BONES, I also started Win2k3 in safe mode, safe mode with blah, all three cases of Safe Mode gives me good screen and access my programs no internet as safte mode blocks.

    I want my internet back AND my good old Win2k3. If anyone can help. It should not be a video card problem because (1) I have integrated a video card AND (2) it works well under XP

    It could be a corrupted RAM, even if dxdiag shows all the available RAM, I have hope that there is a way to check WITHOUT removing them from the socket.

    It might even be a mistake of an operating system, that I don't know how to make sure that, if I can reinstall after the top in Mode safe

    It could be another thing and combinations of these. (Probably the 2 above, in my view, have no idea how can ensure me that)

    I ordered a series of dog training DVD.  When I went to download the premiera and play via Windows Media Player, I have audio, but the captain was missing, just a screen dance of psychedelic images.  I've screwed around a bit and go get rid of it, but now I just have a white screen with complete audio.

Same thing, only it started with a white screen.  I doubt that this is a problem with the link, but he has seen it happen on 2 different puters a wonder.  I am running Vista on my desk, I think it is XP on the laptop.
