Satellite P200D - black screen and does not just by running

Hello everyone, I have a Toshiba Satellite P200D - 107 PSPBLE with configuration set-aside:

Processor: Turion x 2 TL - 52 64-bit clocked at 1.6 Ghz
Display: 17.3 inch
Graphics card: Ati radeon x 1200
RAM: 2 x 512 MB ram (1 GB total) which I upgraded to 1 x 2000 MB and 1 x 512 MB (for a total of 2.5 GB)
Power: Running on the direct power without the battery cable

Although the pc is quite old sound fundamentally new barely there 1 year of normal use on it.


The screen goes black (no), even if the screen still has the backlight running, the laptop is still under tension, but its basically in a kind of deep hibernation with the fan running yet.
The laptop screen turns off 5-10 minutes after windows loads, even if in idle, it also stops during installation of the operating system.
I tried to run the music and the music stops when the screen goes black made all the hard disk activity which I believe indicates that it is not related to the video chip.


1. open up the computer laptop and cleaned all dust processor, now CPU temp is 50 max, even for hard disk
2. update the bios to the original to 1.70 - did not help
3 connected external monitor also stops it the same time as the laptop screen indicating it is not not a screen issue
4 reinstall OS several times
5 tested memory with memtest64 - no error
6. test the hard drive with hddregenerator - no error

What I've noticed:

If I leave just a 512 MB of ram in the laptop then the laptop stops not at all even in windows applications, tried to launch a game to remove video card and it works without problem for hours, but as soon as I add the stick of 2 GB or another origianal 512 stick it will go inside the black screen 5-10 min (or earlier) to get into windows.

He never stops in dos mode (as in memtest, hddregen) even with 2.5 GB of ram.

After that the screen goes black, if I stopped and then try to save, it it won't work at all, the screen stays black with the fan spinning and boot CD, I must absolutely disconect the power cord power and re - set before it starts again.

Anyone has any ideas, I am experienced with the pc, but have never stumbled upon something so weird that I have just can't explain this problem that came straight from heaven.


Toshiba to wake up, this forum is a total joke, you would think that you would be able to afford hiring a bunch of technicians to actually help people rather than rely on the users of the forum to do your work for your, you don't need to have a forum, if you don't have the staff to actually help people solve their problems.

  • Computer has a black screen and does not show the normal startup logo and more

    The computer that I use usually works well, until the next day, the day that I used it, ruined everything. My computer shows not the Windows 7 logo normal at startup, but instead, a bar with green lines in movement like the ones you see in older versions (Windows Vista), but now only the bar and did no logo in it and after starting does not display.

  • Qosmio G40 - black screen and does not start

    A bit of water on my laptop... (bought in 2007, guaranteed on)
    I did not cut power at the time because it did not work properly...

    But, the next morning.
    Start with a black screen, fan is too much work and I have a beep.
    An and after a continuous short beep...

    I opened it and dry all (air cold & mild)... paper to remove moisture.

    but screen remains black, a beep and the fan not working too.

    Please help... What can I do?


    It seems that water damged your laptop or at least some parts. In the worst cases, you need a lot of new pieces of equipment, but I don't think that an authorized service provider can help you diagnose this problem.

    On the Toshiba site, you can search for them: > support & downloads > find an authorized service provider

    Contact them and ask for help. They will help you as much as possible. :)

  • Equium P300-19O - black screen and does not restart

    Have you checked if you can boot into safe mode? You can try to start in safe mode if you go into the advanced boot menu by pressing F8 after you have switched on the laptop. Here you can choose.
    Maybe you can also try a system restore to a previous state.

    If it doesn t work it should boot from the recovery disk Toshiba and reinstalling Windows.

    Hi Burton089,

    Your hypothesis is right. To resolve this problem, we need to repair your installation of Windows using the Windows XP disk. We recommend that you contact the manufacturer of the laptop to check if they have the Windows recovery disk.

  • Computer has a black screen and does not start. Vista of Aspire5535 Acer base

    As above.  Help please!


    If when you start your Acer is no 'Acer' logo splash screen at all and nothing appears on the screen, which would indicate a hardware problem.

    If under warranty, contact Acer.

    If it is not under warranty, use a repair shop, local.

    See you soon.

  • Satellite Pro L450D black screen and will not respond to any keys


    My niece has used his Toshiba L450D for almost a year now and he really liked it, who was until last month. She turned on her laptop and when she presses the button of the mouse, the button cracked and he fell into the laptop.

    Now my brother contacted Toshiba and I was told because it is under warranty it might return for repair because it was a common fault. Then he he packed in loads of air bubbles and a box to make sure it was safe.

    A few weeks later he came back repaired but we were all shocked that the laptop was put in a very loose box and you could hear this rattling noise. When we turned on the battery was flat and we had a new boot menu.

    As she installed it Windows 7 laptop would boot directly into Windows 7, but now after the repair of the laptop shows a menu black screen with as follows:

    + Windows 7 +.
    + Recover Windows to Factory Settings [active EMS] +.

    So we started in Windows and everything went well, but now after 5 or 10 or even 20 minutes, laptop displays a black screen and will not respond to keys or mouse movement. There is nothing on the screen its just black.

    I started in SafeMode (which was more difficult with the new menu) and it does the same thing. I even managed to do a virus scan quick who took 3-4 minutes and was clean.

    I would like some advice on what my niece is very angry, and it's difficult to explain what is happening to a child in the primary school.

    Any help would be grateful.


    Have you tried the option of HARD drive recovery?

    If this is not the case, try to set the notebook back to factory settings using HARD drive recovery.
    Turn on the device, press F12, choose repair my computer, then select Toshiba HDD recovery.

    I hope it will work!

  • I accidentally put 100 files on my desktop and it went to black screen and will not work

    I accidentally put 100 files on my desktop and it went to black screen and will not work


    Following methods and check if that helps.

    Method 1:

    Step 1:

    Start your computer in safe mode and check if it starts very well.

    Step 2:

    If the system starts in safe mode, then there would be a third-party software, causing the issue to occur. I wish that you start your machine in a clean boot State. Clean boot helps eliminate conflicts of third party software.

    Note: Follow step 7 to your computer as usual.

    Method 2:

    If this does not help, you can perform System Restore in safe mode.

  • Satellite U305-S7432 freezes and does not sometimes using Win XP


    I have a portable Satellite U305-S7432.
    Initially, it came with Vista, but I reformatted with XP Pro. I have installed all updates up to service pack 3.

    My problem is that sometimes when I try to restart the computer, simply, it freezes and does not meet any entry. I noticed that this happens if I close and then open the cover (which means that the computer goes mode sleep entry and returns).

    Please note that the splash screen works perfectly well and the computer wakes from sleep fine but then when I try to restart, the computer will simply spend time instead of restart.

    If it goes into sleep mode, reboot takes place as planned.

    I installed all the drivers and there is no question mark in Device Manager. I've updated the latest chipset from Intel (for the mobile 965) driver as well. Finally, I also tried to add /forceresetreg my Boot.ini file (as suggested: but nothing helps.

    Any ideas?

    It is a series of laptop computers Toshiba us and you should check the Toshiba driver page for available drivers:

    If you will not find XP drivers for this page, then you can try to install unique drivers for Sat U300 since European Toshiba page but I not quite sure if these drivers XP will work on you Sat U305 Mr. but it s worth a try!

    Good luck

  • Satellite A100 has a black screen and will not charge in the Bios

    I bought a Satellite A100 - (model psaa8c-0fh00e) about 5 months ago. It was left overnight, which is not uncommon, and when I came back using about 15 hours later it was just a black screen. moved from the touch screen and keys, and nothing did. so I cold it starts and he died. I then turned it back as usual and the laptop turns on but the screen is completely black. It's not loading the normal Toshiba Bios screen.

    Now my question: If there is any way I can solve this, I am familiar with computers and parts. I don't get this cause I've ever had to reflash the wood or something like that. I am unsure of how to activate and I really want to have to take it to a shop, any suggestions would be helpful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Conrad,.

    If your 100 starts normally (spinning HARD drive, optical drive LED flashes, fans turn etc.) then I suppose that your FL inverter or LCD screen is not. You can check this by connecting an external monitor to the laptop to see if it shows the normal display.

    On the other hand if there is no activity at all portable computer turn when you turn it on then I guess you have an internal hardware failure, possibly the main card, which must be checked by a Service partner authorized Toshiba since the unit is still under warranty if it is only 5 months old.

    Kind regards

  • My Apple Watch has a black screen and will not load.  I have it odd, but I can't seem to pair again.  Any ideas?

    My Apple Watch appears to be dead.  The watch screen is black.  I have not matched the watch and we tried pair again, but the iPhone doesn't seem to acknowledge that she and I can't manually pair either.  Any ideas on what's going on?

    Charge the watch first. Instructions here > check your battery and load your Apple Watch - Apple Support

    If necessary, restart the Apple Watch.

    You should force reboot your device as a last resort, and only if it does not. To force the restart your Apple Watch, press in and hold the side button and the digital Crown for at least 10 seconds, and then release both buttons when you see the Apple logo.

  • Satellite A300 - black screen, Win7 is not booting

    I was working on my Toshiba A300 when suddenly Microsoft Security Essentials detected a threat, after cleaning it asked me to restart my laptop, after restart, it shows only the TOSHIBA screen with F2 and F12 options, but after that, else nothing happens. There is only a black screen, not even a cursor or anything like that.

    Nothing else happens, I tried to insert Win 7 bootable disc to repair the operating system, but my laptop does not seem to start through the drive, I checked the boot order in the BIOS settings, but still nothing, it does not accept the disk/USB nothing at all, it is not even go into safe mode by pressing F8 key continues to beep when I press any key regularly , I'm stuck & useless what to do, kindly help.

    It seems that the system on the HARD disk has been confused upwards and you will need to reinstall new OS.

    > I tried to insert Win 7 bootable disc to repair the operating system, but my laptop does not seem to start through the disk
    Insert the floppy disk. Then power on and press F12. Now, choose ODD (optical disc) as the boot device and press ENTER.

    The laptop boot from the CD?
    If this isn't the case, you should check if the laptop could start from any other bootable disk. This is necessary because you need to know if his problem of disk problem drive or an optical disc.

  • Satellite L300 - black screen and a cursor flashing at the top left

    July 11, 2010
    My computer purchased on March 7, 2009.

    I don't know if there is a problem of tension, but there is certainly a problem of heat and since I bought it, almost constantly overheating. For about 2 months, it became more slower to load the desktop. For about 1 month, the operating system found himself in a cycle of rebooting - rebooting repeatedly instead of start normally.

    On July 11, 2010, the Windows XP operating system would not start. Lit black screen, blinking cursor in the top left. The computer does not have a Windows startup disk and won't start not in: -.

    Safe mode
    Safe mode with networking
    Safe mode with command prompt
    Last good Configuration known (most recent settings that worked)
    Start Windows normally
    System Restore - will not give access.
    Recovery console - the Windows XP CD will start and provided access to the Recovery Console called tool. Operations: -.

    Difficulty in a Boot.ini file that is damaged - YES
    Difficulty a corrupt partition boot sector - YES
    Difficulty of a corrupt master boot record - No.

    I pressed F2, F8, F10 and F12.


    It seems that something was tangled up in your Windows installation and the computer can no longer start t.

    In this case, you have only one option and that s reinstalling Windows. Therefore, you can take the (better) Toshiba Recovery disk or a Microsoft Windows XP disk. It will restore factory settings and your computer is read to use again.
