    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?

    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

    See you soon,.

    I doubt it. Once a BIOS is damaged, its cant boot or anything like that, so you can't reflash the BIOS. I guess that the motherboard would need replacement.

    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

    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

  • 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.

  • 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 A60 - white screen Freeze on Boot up


    My laptop Satellite A60-106 has developed a problem starting up upward. It just hangs on a white to the startup screen until I see all the graphics. It seems that it can access the CD/DVD drive, but any attempt to start with a recovery disk fails in the same white screen and it freezes. I tried the advice from manufacturers that power with the F12 key and another suggestion on the
    CD hold down the C key while powering brings the same result.

    Nothing other than the white screen. I tried F8 to see if I can get into safe mode but it will not exceed the original deaf of readers and then silence. I can't imagine a way to get it to allow me to pass. I'm sure you can however? I'd be happy to format and reload but if I can't access the drive so how can I do this?

    I wanted to increase the RAM, but all the suggestions in the book of the hand do not relate to the layout of my laptop. The small Access window on the bottom of the laptop will not provide sufficient access to the RAM? Poking around the RAM could have induced this white screen lock?

    Thank you

    Hello, Charlie

    To be honest you have serious problem and I really don't believe that you can solve alone. It is not easy to say with certainty why white screen occurs at startup to the top. In my opinion there are several reasons responsible for this.
    -Display (electronic LCD screen, cable)
    -as far as I know white screen occurs if FL dimmer makes background light but there is no signal display can be defects on the motherboard and there is no video signal

    The best thing you can do is to contact the authorized service provider. They check your laptop. They have special tools and there is no problem to know why this happen.

    Good bye

  • Satellite C855 - white screen after BIOS update


    I am a beginner user,
    I have Satellite C855
    Yesterday, I downloaded a 'update BIOS"that was sent to my computer.
    Since that my screen is blank, there is a hum in the background.

    I have a recovery back up on my external hard drive, but of course, the screen is blank so I don't know how the product.

    I think I must have downloaded a model or the update was not compatible.


    White screen do you mean that nothing appears on the screen?
    You see the start screen of Toshiba, or if you are able to access the BIOS?

    Where this is not possible, try this:
    Disconnect the power adapter, remove the battery.
    Press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds.
    Then connect the two parts (batteries and AC adapter) for the laptop and try to turn on the unit.

    In case this would not solve the problem of the laptop, I'm scared of m the BIOS update was not completed successfully and I think that only authorized Toshiba service provider would be able to help you.

  • Satellite P300 - white screen after waking from sleep state

    I'm having this problem:
    The LCD screen may be empty when the computer is "awakened" from the sleep state. Nothing is visible on the internal LCD or an external monitor.

    There seems to be a solution:
    An update of the firmware for a component in the main circuit of the computer solves this problem. This update must be performed by an authorized Toshiba (ASP) Service provider. Until arrangements are made for the update, restart the computer by pressing the power on button for a few seconds.

    described here: [white screen after awakening from fallback status |]
    I also found this, but it didn't really help me much further.
    [Satellite P200D and WinXP: no display after waking from sleep mode |]
    In fact, I think I'm able to solve myself, and I don't like not my laptop to be gone for two weeks or more. I just need some advice on where to find a correct upgrade. Is - this driver BIOS or graphics? Which version should download, where... etcetera. More tips on how to solve the problem are also welcome.

    If you check the Toshiba document you would see that your Satellite P300 is not related to this issue.

    In your case I would recommend upgrading the BIOS and graphics driver.
    In addition to keep your operating system up-to-date.

    I had this problem under Win XP and a MS patch and an update of the graphics card driver helped solve this problem.

  • 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.
