Satellite Pro C660D - screen does not turn
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!
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 used my Satellite Pro A60 yesterday and everything was fine, I tried to use it today and the screen lights it is just white... Please can someone help I am lost without her, the blue light comes on, but nothing on the screen please help.

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!
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
Light (switch) on my screen does not turn off. So, I shut down my computer and restart several times a day, because when I put it in mode 'sleep', he wakes to the top in a few minutes and will not fall asleep. I could put a blanket on my screen when not in use, but I'd rather find a way to make it stay asleep when I tell him.
Light (switch) had already done once before and I was so worried that once I turned off the monitor that I would never get it new on... a bit short of money here, to buy a new monitor, but the next day, I pressed the power button with an additional downward pressure and I could so he could start working again (able to turn the market monitor). It was about 3 weeks ago. Now, the light stays green, unless I stop the whole computer.
Maybe my main problem is sleep mode, which removes the screen for like 2 minutes and then he wakes up to the top and is so rude when I myself and try to sleep, I just turn off the monitor everytime I put the computer to sleep.
Now, I can't turn off the monitor, except by turning off the computer.
I suggest you follow the provided article and check if it helps.
If the problem still persists contact the manufacturer of the monitor for more help and information.
I had a problem about a month ago with my Toshiba Satellite A210-1AP, just that the screen did not turn. Was working on the computer, all the lights were on. The light that shows the HARD disc flickered, as usual, but with display always off. So I stop, and the next time I tried it was warking as usual, with display turned on, he asked if I want to start windows normally or in safe mode (as when it is restarted abnormally). Then worked normally for a few days, and then it happens again. At this point, I could not go to the service (computer was in warranty, and how do you prove that something happens sometimes if it happened there). So I continued to use it, and as the time past the problem was more often. So I decided to go to the service.
Guy in the service, said that the problem is the motherboard, so he changed the motherboard and it took months for him to do, and then when I called he said that it still does not. And maybe he has change rooms, display, graphics card is perhaps a problem, that he has not seen the problem like this...
So my question is do you know what could be the problem? And the second question is can I demand of him, because he went from 30 days to give me a new computer rather change all parties to this issue?
It's really hard to say what causes this problem, but I think that notebok technicians do a good job and they will be committed to repair your laptop as soon as possible. Maybe they ordered some new parts, but they are not available at this time
Theoretically, all that could be the reason of this problem FL inverter, LCD screen, motherboard, graphics card, cable, etc.
So I think you should call the technicians still what is the current status.
But I doubt that you can get a new laptop for free. If it of still under warranty, it will be repaired.
Can someone help me please on a screen problem? I have a Toshiba Satellite A60-122 and when I turn it on the screen does not work. It remains black as if the power of the laptop was turned off. I tried to connect the laptop to an external monitor, but it still does not work. I have no more ideas of what can do to make it work.
I already told to format the pc with the cd of restoration but without an image, it is impossible to do anything...
I'm not an expert, but if there is no image on LCD internal display and the external monitor, I assume that there is a problem with the graphics card. I think you should contact the customer Service of your country partner and let check the device.
I also hope that the warranty is still valid and if something needs to be replaced they will do it for free.
Bye and let us know if you have more information about it.
My friends laptop - a S300-120 - was having a few problems.
I replaced some parts about this before, including a screen crack with no problems.
However, he began to refuse to start saying "out of battery CMOS, Press F1 to enter setup". Of course you would have to do this, set the date and time, except & restart only to get the same message. We have replaced the CMOS battery with a with the same serial number and now the laptop will not boot.
It does one of two things.
It is one) seems to turn, turn to the top disk & CD player, cooling fan is 100%, then flashes the POWER ON led once, twice by orange, and then green to 1/2 second intervals, with no response from the keyboard or LCD.
Or (b) turns on, turntable, does not turn up to cooling fan, POWER ON witness remains stable, no response from the keyboard or LCD.
I re-assembled the laptop several times & can not find all the missing fittings or obvious signs of damage.
The only thing I can think is that the motherboard has been damaged - somehow find replacements is delicate.
(> It is a) appears to turn on, turn the disk & CD player, cooling fan goes to 100% and then flashes him
POWER ON led once, twice by orange, and then green to 1/2 second intervals, with no response from the keyboard or LCD.
Usually, if the voltage in abnormal feeding malfunctions when IN DC will be blinking orange.
In my opinion, it looks like a problem with the motherboard :(
Eventually, you will need to replace the mobo ;(
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 problems with my display does not turn off automatically (for example, after 3 minutes of inactivity). What is happening is that the display actually goes to the maximum brightness, even if the screen indicates that the brightness is set to 0.
Should which driver I update to solve this problem?
Ok. I decided to uninstall AMD video drivers and reinstalled them. Now its working as it should.
See you soon...
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
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:
