Satellite L40 does not start
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?
Remove the battery and try to start your laptop with AC power only.
You don't see anything on the screen?
A good friend of mine has a laptop Toshiba Satellite L40, who died recently, and she has not been able to find the warranty documents yet, so I wanted to ask if maybe you could help.
Basically, what's happened is that one day she was using the computer and not have noticed that it was not plugged in to charge, and before completely lost all power, the computer went into automatic hibernation mode.
It plugged into the charger, the lights indicated that he was in charge. A few hours later she was trying to turn on, but nothing. the computer itself gives off a sound very low, as if turned on, but the screen is completely blank. She said that it's almost like she couldn't make the thing out of hibernation mode. He continues to give sound and some indicators remain lit until the battery is running out of charge.
She has Windows XP is installed on the computer.
Perhaps someone could help as to what is happening here? 1 million thanks!
Weird, but have you tried to remove the adaptor AC/DC and battery? Wait one hour and then reconnect the adapter AC/DC and battery. Maybe the laptop restarts.
If this isn't the case, I think that you need assistance from an authorized service provider. It seems to be a hardware problem and the laptop should be checked by a technician from Notepad to determine the cause of this problem.
On the Toshiba site, you can search the nearest ASP:

I have a smallproblem. My Satellite C650 does not start when my android phone is plugged into the USB port. It sticks to the Toshiba start screen. I checked the boot order and the hard drive is the first on the list, so it isn't that. Any advice will be welcome.
Thank you very much
Cool. Thanks for the comments.
My Satellite P300 does not start immediately. I have to press the button start ca. 20 or 30 times.
I have the Satellite Pro P300 in front of me. I use it almost 4 weeks now and I press the Start button, very gently and keep it down to the second or two and laptop starts fine everytime I want to start it.
Do not press the button quickly several times but slowly and keep it down for a second or two.
I'm having a problem with my Satellite 2450 where it is not initialize properly - is stuck in the screen of Windows XP (just continues to scroll through and hangs there).
I can boot into safe mode.
Have not had any other problems with it - no errors, do not have installed/uninstalled anything recently.
Any ideas what could cause this problem?
Do you think I should use the recovery disk to reinstall the OS? Anything less drastic I can try?
any advice appreciated,
Thanks in advance.
Usually, if the laptop does not start correctly in normal mode, but only in SafeMode because some drivers or / and software applications are false or defective.
In this case, the recovery procedure should solve this problem.
If you n t have the Toshiba Recovery CD, you can install from the original CD of Microsoft's operating system, and then you can try to install stuff together from Toshiba (driver, tools)
These software, you will find on the page of the Toshiba driver.
Just bought a Satellite C650, get it home and my son decided to stop the whole upward as he ran.
Now, we get the error below:
Check the connection of the cable!
PXE - M0F: Exit Intel PXE ROM
No boot device - insert boot disk and press any key.
We received no drives, nor a manual with adequate instructions and can't find anything on the web for help.
Toshiba closes for the day.
Hoping that this forum could give me an idea.
PXE error is displayed because the laptop has attempted to boot from LAN.
Why it does not start from the HARD drive but LAN switches?
I think the HARD drive is defect.
Perhaps its also not recognized in BIOS.
Switch on and press F2. This allows you to access the BIOS where you could check if the HARD drive is recognized. I guess it must be mentioned on the first page.
If it s not there, then it means that the HARD drive is dead and must be replaced.
I assume that the warranty is still valid; Therefore, you should get in touch with Toshiba ASP in your country for replacement.
My Tosh Satellite M30 laptop (with 2 HD discs) does not work after I have updated with the MS security updates, it does not start XP.
The laptop makes a clicking sound and gives me the message:
PXE - E61: Media test failure, check cable of
PXE - M0F: Exit PXE ROM
Operating system not found.
I changed the boot order in the BIOS to: CDROM. And select Exit and save changes.
Inserted my Toshiba Recovery windows XP version that allows me the option of
"1. the recovery disc" or "2. Expert recovery mode"or also"Exit ".
I chose "1. Recovery disc"as I'm not an expert (as you can tell!)
I then get a load of diagnostic checks run by laptop and it shows then finally on the screen:
X:\\ no disk fixed
Ideally, I would like to repair and keep things I have on my drive D: HD.
I'm pretty sure the XP starts on my drive C: HD.
Your help is very appreciated!
The PXE message means that the device is trying to boot from the network. I put t understand you a lot with C and D HD. I assume you mean that you have two partitions on a single HARD disk. C partition for the operating system and the D partition for your data.
If I understood you as soon as you cannot boot operating system at all. On this path, it is not easy to say what may be the problem but obviously you a problem with the HARD drive. It is probably defective. If the recovery DVDs is not able to detect one that there may be a serious problem.
I put t know how contact the partner old Service your unit is but if the warranty is still valid and let check the device.
I have a Toshiba Satellite A350 (about a year and a half) who does not start correctly. This has happened after that the laptop was left on until the battery has failed. The button of the keyboard and the power LED lights up, but the screen stays black when I try to turn it on. I use Windows Vista.
The machine continues usually to make a sound whirring for a few seconds before it stops making noise (the fan and the HD). The screen flickers sometimes a lighter black on a screen for less than a second. In addition, the cooling fan has sometimes continued to operate after you stop all the rest.
Another problem is that when if it is turn on and go to the Toshiba screen, odd lines will fade to the screen, and finally the screen eventually white/blue. On the other hand, sometimes it turn on and act as if nothing had happened. In these times, placing sleep mode will be to not be a wheat to turn back on.
I tried removing the battery, using only the battery, fully charge the battery and using the laptop with barely any load from the battery and it doesn't change anything.
I would really appreciate any kind of lead as to what may be wrong with the poor.
Generally speaking, it is always difficult to say something on these sometimes mistakes because it s not clear and can be caused by all parties, but at the moment I doubt that this problem is software partner
You see something on a screen when the internal screen stays black?
In the worst case, it s that a hardware malfunction and that would mean you need help from an ASP to check what part is affected, but if your laptop is under warranty, the repair is free.
I have a Toshiba Satellite A200 on VISTA.
The laptop does not start. I can get to the Toshiba splash screen, but don't go no more far just get the blocking of the laptop and the display one? symbol at the top right of the screen.
-Reset to the factory settings (no difference)
-Starting with the battery and output (no difference)
-Withdrawal of the memory modules and try different configurations (no difference)
-Remove the hard drive (screen displays the details of Intel and say no HD media detected no screen Toshiba either)
-Pressing the button to try to get in windows safe mode (can t happen).
Title information, under settings, I see the hard drive and DVD player is connected is connected.
If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
Thanks in advance
It seems that you have already tried all possible solution proposals
But what happens if you start the laptop using a bootable diskette. for example, recovery disk, disk Win XP, Linux live CD, etc?
I knew it could be a HARD drive problem, even if the HARD drive is correctly detected by the BIOS
Maybe a replacement HARD drive might help maybe.
Otherwise, it could be a serious hardware problem I m thinking: motherboard
What do you think?
I have 100 M Satellite
_when I turn it on it makes 8 signals and not booting not delivered.
I can't boot from the BIOS RECOVERY cd too.
It works but does not start.
HRR, RAM, all components are ok I checked.
WHAT signals DOES 8 mean?
What do you mean with 8 signals?
Sorry, but your statement is fairly general. This type of signals that you noticed?
Audio (beep) and visual signals (flashing LED)?
I assume you noticed flashing signals. Am I right about that?
My Satellite M50-130 does not start correctly. When you turn it on, it goes to a black DOS screen, saying: "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this. "It offers me different start modes: Safe Mode, with networking and command prompt. Last good Configuration known; and start Windows normally.
I tried all the 5 options, gets the commissioning insofar as the Toshiba screen, but then with all the options, it returns to the initial screen offering the 5 modes of starting. Same thing happens when laptop works again.
The only recent software change, I've done was an update to Norton AntiVirus/Internet Security and I suspect that Norton is at least part of my problem, see history below. I know it's the Toshiba support site, but I tried Norton so many times without success, I gave up. Plus, I'm no expert at all, so I can't be sure that it is really the source of all my sorrows. All advice welcome!
The performance of my laptop has deteriorated seriously in the last two months. She is extremely slow, and cleaning of malware and unwanted General does not help. It began right after that I renewed the license of Norton last year and upgraded to the 2007 version. The worst downturns are always connected to direct upcoming Norton upgrade programs. I disabled the live upgrade, but programs always come to the top, and I can't stop them, a popup tells me that they are protected.
Wireless internet is also very capricious, even if another computer on the same network works fine.
During the last week, I had to relax a little internet security settings (from "moderate to severe" to "low to medium") because after an other update of Norton AntiVirus, I couldn't access to interactive Web sites.
It is perhaps a coincidence because Norton AntiVirus comes with updates at least twice a week - but what else could be the problem?
My apologies for the long rant, I am grateful for all the advice!
I think the only way to make your system works correctly again is to restore with the cdrom of onboard catering. Simply manage to save your data from your hard drive (the best way would be to put your machine's HARD drive in a USB - HDD enclosure and copy important data on another computer), then wipe the system completely off you hdd.
After that, the system must run again...
I bought 1 GB PC4200 533 MHZ DDR2 SODIMM memory module for my Toshiba Satellite L30 - 10v (PSL33E) to make it 2 GB. After you have added the 1 GB modules Satellite L30 wouldn't start. With only 1 GB, that it starts ok, with the other 1 GB origianal only boots ok. (The two modules are ZCE6 430 - K4T1G163QB Samsung 1 GB PC4200 533 MHZ DDR2)
The two modules of 1 GB boot not together. I noticed that many others have had this problem. (please see
This [t-22984]. post)
On this forum, someone bought the CT12864AC53E memory module which works, however I can't find this on the site of Crucial.
I've heard other purchase the sticks of memory CT572238 and CT572234 and have the same problems.
Memory Advisor says determinative buy the CT572234 memory sticks.
I have also updated the bios to V3.10, still does not start with the two modules.
I'm ready to buy 2 new modules, but what 2x1GB memory works?
Any help would be greatly appreciated...

For me it s case;
The two modules don't work together
Seems the modules are not compatible there is only one solution. Replacement of RAM!
Try other RAM modules.
I bought a few modules from Kingston and made good experience
I have my Satellite L300D since April last year, and suddenly my laptop does not start when the network adapter is not connected. Says battery 100% (full charge), when I am connected and started the system.
Anyone any idea why my laptop no start on battery alone?
I've already updated the BIOS to version 1.50, but it does not change a thing!
(My warranty until April, so should I send in for service?)
Thank you very much in advance!
In your case I go for a local ASP (authorized service provider) and allow to check your laptop computer of these technicians.
I think that it s a hardware problem, maybe the battery is defective and if you can just start the laptop with AC/DC adapter.
I have a Satellite A30 and sometimes it does not start.
After turning on, not even the BIOS starts.
even if sometimes the BIOS starts, but the OS does not load.
I figured out that its related to USB devices connected at boot time.
If no USB devices are connected, it starts without a problem.
Even if the start-up is suspended, as soon as you unplug start it BIOS USB devices.
Its ok to connect USB devices later, once the system has started.
I disabled "removable devices boot" and "network startup."
just in case, but it makes no difference.
BIOS is version the most recent (1.70) and it comes up with all kinds of USB devices.
printer, mouse and (self-powered) external USB hard disk.
Is this a known issue?
There is no known workaround solution?
I put t know why this happens, but it has to do with the BIOS.
The same thing happened on my old laptop. I couldn't start my unit while the USB printer has been turned on and connected.
The only solution is to disconnect the external USB device during the boot process.
RSY you should check if the order of boot in the BIOS has been on the HARD drive first.
