Satellite A85-s107 - white screen at startup by using the power of the battery

Satellite A85-s107 white screen at startup by using the power of the battery

When I boot A85-s107 in battery power, it is get booted up in the background, but my screen is empty.
After that if I connect it to AC power and switch deactivation/activation of the laptop power button, the screen comes back to life.

There is no problem when I start upward when it is connected to an electrical outlet.
Battery is fully charged and computer will work off the battery voltage if I remove AC after boootup

Any suggestions?


also note that when I remove AC and then reconnect I start the computer on two occasions that it does not start the 1st time?

Don t need to recharge the battery if the AC adapter is plugged ;)
Try the tips posted by Alex otherwise it of a hardware problem, in my view, there seems to be something wrong with the motherboard...
In this case, only the replacement could help and it could be a costly affair

    Very strange problem
    Have you noticed this problem from the beginning?

    First check if your BIOS is up to date. Updated the BIOS if the new version is available.
    In addition it would be recommended to update the display driver.

    But if two updates don't change this, then I recommend you contact an ASP in your country. It could be a hardware problem.

  • White screen on startup of the satellite C850

    I bought a Toshiba Satellite C850 PSCBWA-05E001 so 18 months out of warranty now.
    I bought it for a few friends, I gave him to who are in the Philippines, so it is difficult for me to check and repair. My friends lack the funds to get it checked if any help would be appreciated.

    Some days he started to initiate a white screen. You can see the mouse, but that's all. They are unable to get the computer display anything. I read on several forums that it could be a video cable however I got them to hooked to an external monitor to work through the laptop's VGA output & restarted the laptop & the external monitor goes to white screen which are also seems to exclude a faulty video cable as this would affect the monitor to the laptop only I think.

    I'm concerned that does not the video card is a graphics chip of integregrated I guess that means to replace the whole motherboard I guess.

    Very disappointed for my friends since the machine is just out of warranty.
    Someone at - it ideas?

    > I am afraid that does not the video card is a graphics chip of integregrated I guess that means to replace the whole motherboard I guess.

    Yes, I have fear of the motherboard must be replaced in case of malfunction of the graphics card of m.
    It would be the worst cases because the new motherboard is very expensive and in most cases it s not worth buying a new motherboard if isn t valid warranty more.

    I have no many solutions for you; It looks like a hardware problem and to resolve this problem, replace the defective part. But of course, it of a just a question of money :(

  • Satellite A20 - white screen at startup

    Someone help my old A20 Satellite re start? It is under XP SP3, but to start all I get is a white screen.

    Worked very well four days ago. I tried all the options key of F I know, assuming that some display glitch. I hear Windows Start, I can hear the HARD drive running, but it never gets rolling enough to power the fan. Have you tried to insert several CDs including the recovery disk, but all I get is a white screen. When I turn off it disappears instantly and the CPU seems to immediately turn off the power.

    Any ideas out there?
    Would not matter given his age but has a lot of family saved photos!


    You mean the white screen still appears? Even you dΘmarrez from a bootable disk?
    You see the Toshiba splash screen that appears at the beginning?

    I think it s a hardware related issue
    You can try to connect the laptop to external monitor to check if the same white screen would be visible on the second screen.

    The point is that this could be a GPU problem is only a display problem internal.
    The GPU issue would affect the monitors and if it would be a mobile number, then you should see something on the second monitor.

    However, it looks like a hardware problem

  • Has no model number I can find on the web page of Toshiba Satellite A85-S107

    I have a toshiba satellite a85-s107, part No. psa82u-00r004z. Series No. 65430273 k.
    problem is that I can't find it on the page web toshoba obviously then nor drivers.
    It's a cell phone Factory reconditioned and I think it came from America, as says that the warranty applies only to the United States.

    Anyone know where the drivers are for this machine? Please


    I agree with Quad. This unit is really designed for the American market.
    In this case, you must use the Web from Toshiba site we looking for good drivers.

  • PavilionDV4T-1400 white screen at startup

    I have a Pavilion DV4T-1400 , who immediately becomes a white screen on startup. I have no options. This happened out of nowhere.

    Here is some information:

    -Locks caps/scroll/num doesn't turn on when I press on the

    -It has a slight smell of burn on it when I turn it on

    -J' tried a hard reset (power off, then press on and hold power)

    -J' I tried to delete the memory, that I get no beeps, just a black screen and the scrolling/caps lock lights will Flash 4 times

    -J' had the computer almost 2 years warranty for 1 year.

    -J' have the knowledge/skills to remove and replace the maps system etc.

    I'm looking for some advice, or what someone might think the problem is, so I know what to replace.

    Any ideas? It is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Anything it is displayed on an external monitor? If so, it's the screen or the cable and not the mother/gpu card. If this isn't the case, the new, it's worse. According the description, of course looks a catastrophic failure of the motherboard. The slight burning smell is really a bad sign.

    Here's a motherboard on ebay:


    The price is a little high but lower than HP would be. Go down you $ 20 for a Exchange. There are also several services advertised on ebay that will repair your device for about the same price or a little less.

  • Satellite M30-604: white screen - need new FL inverter


    I have a M30 (SM30-604) with a white screen. I know that the problem is my inverter Board, but cannot source the right spare part. Any body know where is the best place to get one of these. The serial number of the inverter Board is G7100001111/03XB0176134


    In my opinion this extraordinary manufacture parts, you will be able to buy only from the Toshiba service partner in your country.
    Guys are able to order the spare parts directly from Toshiba.
    I think the best way is to contact the authorized service provider and order the Fl of these guys drive there.

    But I give you advice; do not replace all parts if you have no experience. These repair procedures must be performed by a technician.

  • White screen when I turn on the Satellite M50

    I have intermittently just get a white screen when I turn on the computer. Usually, the problem is solved by turning off the computer and try again - but sometimes I get a white screen again.

    It seems to be linked to the use of external devices - can someone give me clear instructions on which expected/doesn't have to be connected when I start and shut down the computer? Or other suggested solutions?

    Thank you

    Hi Rachel

    Believe me; It's not easy to provide an exact solution and that's why we need to study a little ;)

    Have you checked if the graphics card driver update could solve the white screen issue?
    If not, try to download and install the latest graphics driver

    You second question on the laptop stop problems is known to me. Sometimes it happens on my laptop too. The LTCC is a part of the Norton antivirus application, which is still running in the background of the operating system.
    This strange box "close the program" might appear because this context process couldn t be closed automatically and so the operating system can not stop.

    Especially the new application installation might help you. But why don't you use Norton Antivirus? What makes the laptop very slow. I have used this app for a long time but now I use the freeware program called Antivir. Its free and in my opinion much better than the Norton Antivirus.

  • White screen on startup (Vista)

    Whenever I try to turn on my old computer (not too old, I built it myself a few years ago) it goes to a white screen and sits there. The mouse does nothing, but if I hit the keys on the keyboard, the screen will become grey and start flashing vertical lines, scratched. And if I tap ctrl + alt + del screen becomes black. I can't in the BIOS to boot from a Disc... so, what can I do?


    If you can't get to the BIOS, you have a hardware problem.

    "start flashing lines vertical, scratched.

    At the very least. It seems that you have a problem of graphic material.

    See you soon.

  • white screen on startup of Windows7 Pro on my PC

    My PC worked perfectly just three hours, but when he starts again this afternoon, I have a white screen and nothing else.  I can't get into safe mode, or do NOTHING at all.  I rebooted several times, but without success - all I get is a white screen.    I checked all the connections etc everything is as it should be.  What I can do. (I'll send this to my laptop)

    It is worth noting to do with Windows at all, you have a hardware problem, I guess the video card or onboard controller is bad or maybe something as simple as loose cable or bad.  Don't you hear beeb sounds of any kind?  The computer is still under warranty?  How old is it?  If you are not familiar or confident with the material ask someone who knows computers to help you or to take in a little tech shop that has a good reputation (not a big name, a big box computer store).
