  • Satellite A300 - after update BIOS black screen

    Hi all
    I just applied the update to the BIOS on my Satellite A300. After the update is successful, the system carries out a restart. Now when I try to start it I get no display, I can hear the proceedings to hear it, the CD player, the DVD, playback led flashes.

    The ASP Toshiba rang me (phone call), the motherboard must be replaced after a bios update, but it is very expensive for me :(
    Please can you tell me if they are a way to fix it without replacing the motherboard? The bios is an Insyde and according to the site Internet the bios bios [recovery technology |]. I guess that the ASP does not know that.

    Please can you tell me how to start the recovery procedure it is possible (combination?),.
    Any help on fixing the laptop without replacing the motherboard will be much appreciated.


    I think that the ASP is just and in the worst cases, the motherboard should be replaced.

    You can try to remove the battery and the AC adapter. Wait one hour and then connect the AC adapter and the battery and try again.

    If it doesn't work you should go to an ASP. Perhaps a BIOS reset can solve the problem, but it can be done from an ASP.

    Good bye

  • Windows Vista starts with a black screen with the mouse cursor


    I bought a new Toshiba laptop with OS Windows Vista from Best Buy. At time of purchse that Best Buy does not give me the Vista OS software, they said that the operating system is already installed in the laptop.

    Now, after a year, I have problems with the laptop. The Vista starts with a black screen with a mouse cursor. Before writing this issue, I searched some tips to solve the problem as

    (1) by pressing F8 while the computer is on and select it the option "last good known Configuration (Advanced) option." but it didn't work.

    (2) by pressing F8 when the computer is turned on, then turn on the option 'System repair Option', it did not work.

    (3) by pressing F8 when the computer is turned on, and then select the option "" safe mode / Normal mode option "Unfortunately she also did not work."

    Could you get it someone please let me know how I can solve this problem.

    Thanks in advance

    If Safe Mode does not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do a repair disc to do a startup repair, etc.:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    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.

    Link above 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:

    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.


    Vista recovery media obtain and/or use the Partition Recovery Vista on your computer to the factory settings .

    There is no Vista free download legal available.

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.


    In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

    Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

    Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.


    Also ask them if it is possible to make the recovery disk/s since the Partition of recovery in case of hard drive failure or System Crash, when you're up a new drunning.

    They will tell you how to do this.

    Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.


    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, Acer, recovery disk/s etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    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

    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.

  • Windows 7 starts problems with black screen and the cursor because of power failure

    I'm on a Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium OS. Start-up problems arose after the power failure (accidentally unplugged the charger, the battery was not in place) during a video call in Skype. Accessories attached to the laptop at the time were a Logitech Webcam, a dongle Bluetooth, microphone and headphones.

    When starting my laptop Asus N81VP, he'll go as far as the 'Starting Windows' logo, then I meet a black screen with a mobile cursor. I don't then right click, CTRL + ALT + DELETE.

    I tried the things:

    Start Up Repair = "cannot automatically repair."

    System Restore = no available restore points

    Windows Memory Diagnostic = at 100%, no screen of detected problems, then black with mobile cursor

    Networking Mode Safe Mode/Safe = black screen with cursor mobile

    Activate video low resolution (640 x 480) = black screen with cursor mobile

    Good known Configuration = black screen with cursor mobile list

    Start Windows normally = black screen with cursor mobile

    Please help me. I've had this laptop for less than a year, and it would break my heart to have to re - format.

    You seem to have exhausted most of the options available in such cases, except two:
    D ' log in under a different account.
    -To restore your registry files manually. See below for more details.

    On your heart that could get broken: have you considered using the imaging facility that is integrated with Windows 7? You can find it in the control panel / backup and restore. This is somewhat marginal in the feature and it can be finicky, but it saved my butt several times.

    You can restore your registry files manually to a previous point through the steps described below. The process is complex and requires some careful typing. Ask a computer-savvy friend to help you if you lack experience in this field. Note that it may reset your password to a previous value.
    1. keep tapping F8 during the first phase of startup.
    2. Select repair in the menu that looks like this:
    3 log in as administrator if you are prompted.
    4. Select repair when prompted.
    5. Select the command line in the menu that looks like this:
    6. identify the correct drive letter for your Windows installation. It could be one drive other than c, but it will not X:. You do this by typing commands
    DIR C:\Win*
    Dir D:\Win*
    dir E:\Win*
    until you find the Windows folder.
    I'll call this "Q:" drive
    7 type these commands:
    CD /d Q:\windows\System32\config
    xcopy *. * Q:\MyRegBack\
    CD RegBack
    8. review the dates of the software, system, and SAM files. The files created before or after that is your problem?
    9. If they were made before the problem appeared, you can then type these commands:
    copy software / y...
    /y copy system...
    /y copy Sam...
    (the two points are part of each order)
    10. restart normally. If things don't work then you can go back by copying files from the original register of Q:\MyRegBack to Q:\Windows\System32\config.

    Can someone help me please?


    Thank you for the information.

    System Restore helped to heal the cause (last option of course)

    not sure about the Windows update that seemed to start the problem, but it is 2 instances of run once Wrapper were running.   I have found that if black screen you started the Task Manager, then selected and close it, either run it once windows Wrappers would begin.

  • Satellite P305-S8820 won't start no-POST 'BLACK SCREEN' will not start up CD

    When the HARD drive is connected Vista does not start, regardless of the boot order. Instead, it shows just a black screen with no cursor. Supplied recovery disks will not start. I removed the HARD drive and ran a scan of the disc to see if the drive went wrong, no dice, the disc is good and works fine via usb-sata on another computer.

    I inserted just the toshiba recovery disk, without HARD drive, and it starts. I connected the external HARD drive now and vista tries to start BSOD, I tried safe mode, last known, everything, nothing works, all get a BSOD disappearing too fast for me to read.

    I searched a dump file on my other computer and was a failure. When the HARD drive is connected via usb vista tries to start and the toshiba cd works now, however, it will not perform a complete installation of factory toshiba it does not find the HARD drive? I'm a windows user and I have years of experience with x 86 programming and windows 32-bit operating systems, but I'm stumped. Bad RAM? Bad Sata? Bad HARD drive? Bad CD/DVD? It is Vista Home premium.

    I don't want to reformat and lose all my data "I AM A REAL 'IT' not a silly computer user" no offense to all the others out there but I refuse just "format and forget ' tools used invites to rebuild the BCD and this does not work either and automatic repair does nothing, recovery does not work as it says there is no recovery points I am frustrated beyond words.

    Finally, this operating system is just horrible, I was once the 'happy' owner of a copy of Windows ME and it does not give me half of the problems that makes this operating system.

    I'm fed up with this, and am half tempted to ask my money for my computer, it might not be the responsibility of the user barely shoot / resolve these problems, they should be addressed before the product was released.

    I am at a loss. Help, please.

    Thank you


    I'm a bit confused with the info given, but if you can not restore/repair Windows, while you should do is back up your data to another PC using a USB adapter, and then run the recovery on the HARD drive internal in the P305.

    You must also update the BIOS.

  • Satellite A300 starts spinning on the cover

    Hi all

    This is my first post here.

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite A300 and lights up whenever I close the lid/screen of the laptop it self.
    After having reduced the media bar above the keyboard, I found that if I turn the laptop and then press on the media bar, that he turns on the laptop.

    I unplugged the cable and I can close the lid and everything is OK, as I thought it was the switch first.

    any ideas?



    The control panel of the system above the keyboard contain different buttons.
    The button Mute, Media Play/Pause button etc. are available on some models and the appearance may vary.

    But as far as I know even if the laptop is powered, press the media button would be powering the laptop and start the program which allows to play CDs or DVDs: for example windows media player. This setting is configured as a default setting.

    As far as I know, you should be able to change that using the tool of Support of Toshiba Button. This utility controls the operation of the key on the computer.

  • Satellite A300-15 was: How does the Toshiba control keys?

    I recently bought a Satellite A300-15A; model: PSAJ4E;

    The laptop has 6 multimedia keys on top.
    As described in the manual, they are supposed to perform the following functions shown (from left to right): (I'm dialing for convinience to talk about later)
    1 mute / power button LED
    2 CD/DVD button
    3. Play/Pause button
    4 Stop button
    5. back button
    6 next button

    Can someone explain all the buttons above.

    The only function these peform for me are as follows;
    1st button only allows the LED turned off/turned on but does not any silent operation with any application (not even Windows Media Player). Even when he performs the operation LED is off; only 6 keys and the bottom screen 'SATELLITE' is disabled; the other LEDS (in DC, Powe. Drums, disks) are always on... What is the problem and how do I start its silent operation so that I can cut the pc with any operation of the application.

    2nd button does that open Windows Media Player. What it is supposed to do exactly?

    All other keys do nothing but work on Windows Media Player. They do not work on any other application; either VLC or any other. How can I make it work on all multimedia applications...

    Please do develop and respond with solutions.

    The last of the woks to buttons ONLY with Windows Media Player! You can't use it with 3rd party like WinAmp player.

    According to the first 2 buttons:
    You can change the functionality assign the right exe file.

    For example:
    If you want to assign the light On / Off instead of Mute, you have to go

    Toshiba Assist-> optimize-> Toshiba Button Support.
    Select Dimmer.exe and click on register and click on 'Browse' button to Toshiba support and go in C:/Program Files/Toshiba/Toshiba button Support (or TBS)

    Now the button will start the dimmer.exe

    Even you can do if you want to use Mute or other applications

  • Satellite L300-1AP and Win8 - black screen on startup


    My computer starts as usual, the first screens come well and it will also in the journal of the user on the fine screen.

    However when he was usually in the Windows 8 home screen it goes just a black screen.

    The mouse icon is still there and the work, but the only thing that I can get up is the Task Manager.

    No idea what it is? Eventually a failure of a Windows 8 pilot as everything else seems to work?

    Thank you!

    I agree with Timox; It would be interesting to know if the laptop is working correctly by using another system; in the best case with the system pre-installed and pre-configured by Toshiba or Windows 7.

    I m interested also in the installation procedure you install Win8? Did move you from Win 7 to 8 Win or did you do a fresh install?

  • Satellite L775D-10W - stucks Boot: black screen + mouse cursor visible

    Dear supporters,

    Model: Satellite L775D-10W
    Operating system: Win7 64 bit
    Problem: The procedure start STRP stuck after "Windows load data" and a progress undertitled with 'Microsoft Corporation' bar, resulting a black screen and a mobile mouse cursor.

    The same problem occurs every time...
    pressing F8 > options (safe vaissaille mode) > start gets stuck
    Boot from DVD of Win7 64 bit > startup gets stuck
    Boot from DVD of Win7 64 bit > options > start gets stuck

    It is likely that the graphics card is broken or that the driver no longer appropriate?

    Thank you for your time in advance!



    Graphics card problem may be possible but in this case the POST (power on self test) would not be passed, and in my opinion, it is not possible to access the BIOS.

    However, it's just a theory
    Try to start Notepad using some Live CD like Linux

    I would also recommend to start the advanced boot menu. (by pressing F8) and choose repair my computer option.
    Then select Toshiba HDD recovery

    This option would be to recover the laptop back to factory settings.

  • Satellite L40 dosen't load - black screen

    When I turned on my laptop today I just had a black screen.
    Says battery fully charged, but if I turn off the power the light disappears.

    The led drive usually flickers, but is it not also.
    Can someone please?

    I tried to install Windows to new cd Vista recovery disk and it worked for 2-3 days then the same problem black screen nothing works!

    Please help me I have not installed any hardware or changed any material!

    It is a toshiba Satellite L40

    Thank you


    You should try to first remove the battery and disconnect the power adapter for about 20-30 min. after that time reconnect both part and try to start Notepad.
    Usually, this should help to restart the laptop.

    In addition, a BIOS update must be performed.
    I read that a BIOS update resolves many strange problems and that I myself remember the black screen problem could be solved also.

    So check it out and good luck

  • Satellite A300 - starts, but I don't know why

    I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite A300 and the following events occur:

    I turn off the phone properly, I close the lid, and sometimes with the valve closed the laptop starts normally, both the battery and without. I went through all the power options, and I put that closing the lid do nothing if this was the case. For some reason, Notepad starts do not know why. Perhaps, it is important to update the BIOS?

    I had one of you '? I had many laptops and never exceeded. I hope you tell me clues.
    Greetings and thank you very much.


    Then you have already solved the problem?

    If this isn't the case, you should try to disable the wake on LAN functionality that you can find in the BIOS. In my case it worked.

    Hello, I have a problem with my Satellite A300-14 PSAJ0E-00W00PSK.

    * Screen with input "Enter password" appears every time when I turn it on can guess when I put wrong password 3 times, my laptop turns off. I had installed windows 7 with ubuntu for 2 years with no problems, but I can't boot any operating system present (even when I boot with the CD/DVD inserted with windows/ubuntu).

    * When can I get correct password? Or there is another solution to this problem? *

    Thank you for all the advice!

    I assume that your laptop is locked with BIOS password.
    BIOS password can be set only but I put t understand your situation.
    You have blocked your notebook with BIOS password or someone did it without your knowledge.
    Do you have an explanation for this situation.

    In any case, if the BIOS password is not known to you, you must contact the nearest service Toshiba and ask for help. They can remove for you.
