you see the Toshiba logo red when it starts or a screen empty?
Toshiba logo: so you have a software failure, and you should backup your data and do a restore
White screen: while there must be a problem with your hardware! Contact a Service partner and he will repair under warranty!
I just got my Satellite Pro C660D back from repair (for a faulty fan), but the screen does not light when I start the laptop.
She lights up on the front (and I can rotate the block number power sp that the keyboard works).
I agree, I mean the laptop should work just fine after it has been fixed by ASP so I think that something was not right here and the technician must check this!
I just did a clean install of XP home on this laptop according to the order of installation of driver given on the site. I could not install the util for display devices hotkey toshiba because it says 'driver not found', installation of the hotkey utility seems to do nothing and utilities toshiba install either.
Does anyone have an idea of what I can do?
installed the correct drivers for the right machine? Go to https://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com then driver & downloads and choose your machine.
If you had already done this, you should take your Cd tools & utilities and try the driver form it! They work!
The laptop went to Hibernate, but would not re - awaken.
tried to disable following the manual, but the screen is now definitely blank, any suggestions?
The update of the graphics driver is not bad idea but Stefan, how should Christian update the graphics driver if it s not able turn on the laptop?
I suggest putting the laptop turned off (press the power button for about 4 seconds) and unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery for a while.
After several time (10-30 min), you can try to put the battery in the laptop and connect the power adapter. Then try to start the laptop.
If it helps, then you could try updating the graphics card driver.
In addition if the new BIOS version is available if you could also update it. But don't forget to use the good BIOS and the correct procedure for updating the BIOS.
Good luck Christian
Help am stuck with it.
Necessary to perform a recovery on the laptop and used the recovery CD 2 they seem to work OK. No error during installation, but after that they finished and it restarts didn't get the following message.
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
You can attempt to repair this file... etc but I don't have any original installation CD all have is the recovery for the Toshiba.
I have a setup of Windows XP for the PC disk, but when I try to run which, but it starts just the configuration. Setup is loading files and after the kernel debugger get error
"File ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded.
The error code is 4, sometimes it's 7.
I tried to delete and recreate and formatting partitions, so I can see and I can copy a file to the C: drive
So any suggestions as to what wrong here
Thank you very much
I put t know if this Microsoft Knowledge base article would be useful for you, but you should check it out.

Microsoft has a solution, and I would like to know if you can solve this problem by following the steps of the solution described in the article.
Feedback would be much appreciated
Hi all, hope you can help.
I have a Satellite Pro A60. I stopped as usual, the other night, when I turned on the machine the next morning, he made all the usual noises, but no screen - just empty (black). I can connect to an external display and it works perfectly, so I know it's just the screen.
I took it to a local repair place and they asked if I had given up and said that she needed a new screen, 180 lbs please. Thought I'd take the first tips. Certainly, it has not been abandoned or suffered trauma, in fact it barely moves away from my place of work.
Would it be a fuse or something similar, or screens just die and I'm going to need a new? If she needs a new screen, where can I buy one and it's easy to fit/connect?
Thank you very much
I'm really sorry to hear you have such a problem. As already wrote kody, check please if you can see a small image on the screen. If so, there is problem with FL inverter. It is the component of small material placed under the screen and it offers the backlight.
OK, to buy the new screen is not a problem. You'll find maybe used one and it will be much cheaper than a new one. Replacement is no problem, but this must be done after the disassembly procedure. Talk with your friends. Maybe someone can help you with this.
Last week, I received my new Yoga 2 Pro and the rotation of the screen worked correctly.
I decided to delete the partitions and install my own version of Windows 8.1.
Since then, the rotation of the screen does not work. The screen rotation button does nothing and I do not have the "Enable automatic rotation" box in the screen resolution
In my device manager, I have an error on 'Collection HID sensor' saying "this decice cannot start" (Code 10). Failed to initialize sensor collection HID descriptor. I don't know if this is related.
Can someone help me?
I was able to solve my problem and would like to share the solution with others in case this happens to you too.
I basically installed this package of media (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42503) and after that auto-rotation check button and work of suction works correctly.
Hope that this can also contribute to others.
I got the c850-1lk for about 6 months and it is running Windows 8.1. I started it this afternoon and to navigate on the internet for half an hour when the screen turns off (power and wifi lights still on and could hear the fan running). I turned it and then turn on again, but the screen does not light even if I assume that the laptop itself starts well.
The laptop was not struck and no physical damage has ever been done for her. The only previous problems were related to windows and the update 8.1 where he managed to remove the bootloader, but I managed to fix it with a bootable Linux disc then a complete reset of the system. Linux isn't there anymore.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It's really not easy to say what the problem is here. Remove the battery and press the power for 30 seconds. Connect the power supply only and start it again.
The problem when you do this?
My laptop just screen does not display anything (like when the computer is turned off), but when I connect the external monitor, then the desktop is displayed on this screen. I tried to recover the laptop using the recovery disk and it worked again, but today, it stopped working again.
Again, I must plug the external monitor, and after I tried to restart, I continue to pressing F8 but the startup mode is not come, the noise of when you press a button for too long beeps, however, the monitor of the laptop working again.
How can I solve this problem?
What do you do? You want to recover the laptop?
If Yes, you n press any F8 but you will need to boot from the recovery CD by pressing the C key immediately after starting the laptop.
But this question seems that you have accidentally switched to external display.
I recommend checking the Fn + F5 option. This combination allow you to switch between the display and the external monitor.
I have a toshiba satellite pro m70-113.
Sometimes when my laptop turns off mode standby automatically, due to inactivity and then if I press a key on the keyboard to wake up nothing happens and I have no other choice but to it stop completely by pressing the button for 5 seconds.
But when I restart it works well, that is to say, it starts very well.
But today, when it is in a similar situation, I restarted the laptop, the screen move after the logo screen toshiba. I have the power on several times, but without success. It crashes just on screen toshiba logo.
After a few restart I pressed ESC while restarting and the toshiba logo changed to the texts POST bios screen.
And I found that the text will not go forward after having reached:
Find disk 0:
Maybe default feel HDD initialization...
The captured image is here:
Note: this is a capture when, I don't know how the system has just begun works very well and can be seen that the HARD drive is detected normally this time. While the earlier version, it will not proceed after having reached "Found Disk 0:
So, the problem is that at the time of the problem, the hard drive was not read / initialized or something like that.
And I remember that when I tried to reboot my laptop and it did not work. It was running on battery and when I switched power supply that worked.
So it is a problem that has been fixed in a bet to update BIOS, but for another laptop (see laufendspass post) his link on this forum is here:
And my current bios version is 1.1 and an update is available for v1.30... (But I have not yet updated)
Another problem I had met some time was same this post mentions to be corrected during the update of the bios.
i.e. "corrected: a computer that is turned on to State power and running on battery power, may crash if the user is connected to the AC adapter while it is start.»
So, for this, all mean that these problems can be solved by an update of the bios v1.30 which is available for my Satellite m70-113?
The fact that the initial POST process cannot access your hard disk suggests you that there is a possible problem with the drive, maybe he is not in place correctly when power is applied to it. The contents of the disc should be OK, then I suggest you take a good backup of your system (or at least your personal data) If you manage to get your notebook to boot successfully.
I do not think that an update of the BIOS will affect any on that since the problem does not seem to have a certain 'trigger', and if the BIOS cannot access the hard disk then no matter what version of BIOS you are using.
My Satellite Pro L300-1FN refuses to start. When turned on the laptop displays the home screen toshiba/insyde H20 BIOS and the message "press F2 go to the Setup utility, F12 to go to the start menu" and flashes the light access to the hard drive, but don't try to continue loading. I left the bios at the start screen, but it doesn't do anything for long hours on a power supply or is running the battery flat while on battery.
Is there a way to re - put the BIOS on this unit? If it's a desktop unit I would remove the CMOS battery to force a reset of the BIOS but that's impossible on a laptop. The hard drive is fine because I have it plugged into another system to remove valuable data.
What happens if you press F2 when starting the laptop to the top?
You can access the BIOS?
If so, access the BIOS and set its default value. I think you need to press F9 or F10 to get default parameters, but this will be mentioned at the bottom of the page of the BIOS.
L300-21F is aged 18 months, so out of warranty. When you press the power button, you can hear the fan and a "click" but the hard drive does not start and the screen remains blank. The power and the battery on the headlight LEDs, but the switch light does not work. I checked the power supply and it is 19.3V and substituted a good known. Removed the battery, tried with just the power cord and still nothing. Pressing ESC or F2 when you press the button power does not bring to the top of the screen of the bios or any other message. I have concluded there is no power the jury. A friend he had its technology take a look and he concluded Council is probably a friend.
So my questions are:
1. He's probably right?
2. is it a common problem with an easy solution?
3. what else can do before shelling out for a new Board of Directors?
4. is there a link where I can find how to disassemble the case?
Any help appreciated
> 1. He's probably right?
Yes, it looks like motherboard failure
> 2. Is this a common problem with an easy solution?
If it's a motherboard problem, the whole motherboard is replaced. Quite expensive part...
> 3. What else can do before shelling out for a new Board of Directors?
I don't think you can do anything with fried mobo
> 4. Is there a link where I can find how to disassemble the case?
Take a look at the site called irisvista.com
I received a Pro (PSA65E) Satellite A60 for free... because it has a bug! But I want to fix it and use it.
Problem is that the HARD drive is not recognized by the BIOS. Strange enough, it is possible to format during the initial phase of an installation of the OS from scratch (I tried with Win XP and Win 2000), but facilities do not proceed any further because it won't start HD. If I try to install a time shild, he can't find some data already present in the HD and gives warnongs... which means that it is also possible to write to the disk.
The BIOS screen shows: no drive.
CD-ROM drive is OK, shown as secondary.
I also look in the forums to nothing does not.
Actions taken so far:
* flashed the BIOS, now at version 1.90
* Replaced the original HD (Toshiba, 40 GB) known to be good, by another more small (Toshiba, 30 GB)
* Tried to remove the drive CD and checked BIOS recognizes, it has been removed and recognized it even when delivered. The same manoeuvre with the HD does not change the BIOS screen: he says still 'no drive '.
* Tried with the BACK of Partition Magic version: it says "no disk found. Same thing with the backup came with the PC disks.
Tried other stuff found in Fora them: remove all the power sorce, let the PC for a few minutes... open and checked for visible problems in the area of the disc HARD and so on.
Any suggestion would be appreciated!
Have you used the default settings for the BIOS settings?
After a week off, the Toshiba Satellite Pro A100-080 (PSAASE-00G004GR, 4 GB RAM) of my kids start not anymore.
When turn on/off the system, he * will beep 3 times * (one long, two short beeps), the HDisk light flashes 'blue' and then nothing more. A/c and battery power LED are 'blue', which seem to be OK status.
No other useful help, as the screen remains dark.
We had upgraded to 4 GB MEM (Kingston) a year ago and I already tried the old used 1 GB (included with purchase) or the replacement of 2 x 1 GB since December 2007, but equal status with these modules. This is not
a defect of memory.
I hope that this is not the motherboard, probably only the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 graphics included adapter?
Does anyone have an idea what could be the problem?
Thx for a short help.
Generally this type of beep codes are hardware related or with other words, hardware is defective. So I think it's a hardware problem and an ASP must check your laptop computer to identify the cause of this.
On the Toshiba site, you will find a list of aspic:

wondering if someone could help?
My Satellite Pro A200 with windows XP does not start. It starts with the Toshiba screen.
Then goes to a screen black with text where it says "PXEE61 media test failure - check cable" (I have no cable) then said out of PXErom; moves to the next screen, which lists the options: safe mode; safe mode with networking; safe mode with prompt local; Last Configeration well-known; Start windows normally.
Which have been tried and results in loading from page turns on for about 20 seconds, then just to abandon and trying all the whole process again (before flashing a blue screen) Windows.
Nothing seems to work - tried to take the battery on a... number oftimes and the power cable, but nothing helps.
It's already happened, but after a few false starts gets going - but this time he just don't come out it. I could not take others where locally, but I would prefer not to because I live in Spain and need the laptop as soon as possible and do not know, I want to leave it in some otherwise are hands to the risk of wipe them the hard drive.
So, I would be very grateful for any help as soon as possible and I fear tech short hand maybe having to explain.
Thanks a lot, a lot.
I think the problem is that the operating system is not found on the HARD drive.
The test failure PXEE61 media - check the cable appears especially if the laptop tries to boot from LAN.
Why the laptop is trying to boot from the local network?
-option may be the LAN was chosen first in the boot order in the BIOS
-Maybe the drive is defective and so the laptop is trying to boot from LAN
-the MBR (master boot record) is may be defective
I think you should take the Toshiba Recovery CD and need to format the HARD drive and needs to be reinstalled the operating system.
This should help.
If not, then the HARD drive could malfunction and should be replaced!
