Preferred Solution: Toshiba satellite L500 not working, No disply

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Toshiba satellite L500 not working, No disply

If you still get lights on the edge of the laptop & you can hear the fan spinning and harddisk clicking a bit but nothing at all is appearing on the display then it's either the screen or the power inverter that have gone. Either way it's not really something you can do yourself, take it to a technician to sort out. If you are not getting any lights, fan or clicking sound then it is a power issue - the LED doesn't necessarily mean that the power supply is ok. Again, not much you can do yourself, take it to an expert."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..." Pink Floyd

Answer:Wireless not working in toshiba satellite l500 in windows 7

For a start, turn off CAPS LOCK - it's considered to be shouting & many will ignore you.Did the laptop come with Windows 7 or have you installed it later? Are you sure there are drivers available for the wireless card - check the manufacturer's website if necessary. Some Toshiba laptops have a separate wireless switch on the front edge - if it's there make sure it is in the 'on' position. The usual key combination, as far as I recall, is Fn and F8 pressed at the same time (not F8 on its own) - there should be an LED that lights up on the front edge of the laptop when the wireless adapter is on."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

i have a toshiba satellite and on the back it says the model name is satellite l500-1dt.
i am new to this website and using forums, the message that comes up on my computer is

system warning
Warning:a problem with the cooling system has been detected. please turn off the computer immediately, and return it for service.

i am currently working in the alps and do not have an english speaking computer shop near by.
could any one help me and advise me what to do, i do not know much about taking a laptop apart to clean or change parts.
 

Answer:My Toshiba Satellite l500 cooling fan has stopped working

I would purchase a can of compressed air or use an air compressor (with a light gentle nozzle) and blow the dust out of the inside. If you have a failed cooling fan, then it will need to be repaired or replaced. That model I think is rather old, it may not be worth it to repair.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 PSLS0A-019002 with Windows 7 Home Premium pre-installed that I received two months ago as a gift.

Apart from disliking some the quirky and useless (to me) Windows Vista / 7 features, as the desktop is loading I get the error message "Toshiba Service Station has stopped working" which proceeds to find a solution, but apparently never finds one because this condition repeats itself every time I boot.

On another thread in these Toshiba forums, someone suggested downloading the independent utility called Toshiba Service Station and reinstalling it. I do not see such utility listed on the downloads page for my Toshiba model. Since I don't even know what the Toshiba Service Station does (unless it goes by another name - Toshiba Bulletin Board perhaps?), I have no idea what is causing the error or how to correct it.

Does anyone have a more precise solution?

Answer:Toshiba Service Station has stopped working - Satellite L500 PSLS0A

Hi,

Service Station is not currently active in Australia, so you can simply uninstall it.

Hi,
I cannot get my Toshiba Satellite L500 13T PSLJ3E to work. Here is the timeline:

1. I brought it with Win Vista, It worked great for about 6 months but started slowing down and I decided to change it to Windows 7

2. I installed the Windows 7 using custom install(creating new "windows" folder, not upgrading Vista). Once again it worked great for about a month, but once again it ran into trouble - showing the Windows 7 version of the blue screen of death for 0.5 seconds followed by a restart.

3. I browsed the net and they said that the easiest way to get rid of the problem is to re-install. I did it(after trying several windows repairs) but yes, thats right, it died - before starting the windows it showed problems with Realtek Wireless.

4. I had hopes that third time - the charm will work and re-re-installed the W7(every time using new installation).
Once more time - doesnt work, but this time I cannot even get to install it - the windows installer stops at around 60% of the expanding files and says: problems with the media device. And after the restart I cannot find the Hard Drive(the BIOS shows only FDD and CD/DVD)

Now I'm stuck here, the only way to start the windows is by Safe Mode on my Wondows installed on point 3, yet not every time .
Unfortunately the first of my Recovery DVDs cannot start and on top of that I cannot enter into the recovery partition by pressing 0 at start up, but I see the Recovery Partition when I go to the WIndows in... Read more

Answer:Cannot run the OS on Toshiba Satellite L500

Blue screen and then restart sound's like something with hardware is wrong. I had something like that when my RAM module failed. Check your memory using memtest.

PS. I will not recommend installing windows on windows and reinstalling it. Better format drive and install new clean OS.

edit: or maybe something with your hard drive - if you had an option pull out you hard drive and check it on another computer using HDtune (or something like that)

Hi, I bought Toshiba Satellite L500 -00W and it came with Windows Vista. I tried to downgrade to XP, but it doesn't allow XP installation. Do you know how to downgrade?

Thanks!

Answer:Toshiba Satellite L500 -00W downgrade to XP

Hello & Welcome, toshibaquestion.

Downgrading from Windows Vista to Windows XP is actually a very easy thing to do, BUT, I must warn you; it's the smartest of ideas since Windows XP and Windows Vista differ in driver capability and efficiency. So when you want to you use your MIC or Webcam, they may not work, this goes for your Audio, Network and even Display.

Also, Toshiba's a popular brand, and also a very updated** one, meaning they'll most likely be packed with a webcam, nice wireless card, hi-def monitor, etc - meaning, lots more drivers for you to fuss about and have to replace - which, believe me, isn't fun at all.

Downgrading would require you to actually make a partition (D), then install XP on your partition (D), and then delete your previous partition (C) - This is how I would do it, but I'm sure there's many many many other ways.

Dabble into it abit, and see if you find anything interesting. I'll be here to answer any further questions you may have.

Hello!

I've bought Toshiba Satellite l500-1ef November, and until now laptop worked brilliant. Three-four weeks ago, touchpad, and some space on the left of the touchpad started to be warm. I checked CPU temperature in Toshiba PC Health Monitor (v 1.4.1.64), and it was circa 30%, with 40% use of the cooler. The temperature is incresing in time, and now, after four weeks, touchpad is warmer, and it's about 45-50% temperature od CPU, with 50-60% use of the cooler.

I'm using laptop only for Internet, work in MS Word, and listening music, sometimes I play Warcraft III on it, I've got Windows 7.

Should I go with PC to technical support, or it's normal in my model?

Best regards,
sebastian krysiak

Answer:CPU temperature in Toshiba Satellite l500-1ef

Hi mate

It?s nothing unusual that the touchpad would be warm since the CPU and cooling modules are placed near the touchpad.
So in my opinion you should not be worried about that.

The notebook?s temperature can increase after some time of usage?
This happens due to dust inside the cooling ventilators?
If you want, you can try to remove the dust using the compressed air spray?
I do this from time to time and this helps to keep the temperature on lower level?

Hope I've got this in the right place.

Purchased above and upgraded sucessfully to Windows 7 from XP.
However, the sound is very poor quality - sounds "tinny"

This is applicable to CDs, radio and DVDs particularly when listening to audio books and radio making it impossible to listen to. Have tried changing the settings for the Realtek High Def Speakers, but no difference. Then updated drivers. Windows test 'sounds' are okay and sound coming from both speakers.

I think I've tweaked every available setting I can find but can't find a tweak/setting to change the sound (less bass?). I have seen the volume control and it makes no difference.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

OK so i have just received an older laptop that im trying to resurrect.

O/S : Windows 7Model : Toshiba satellite L500 PSLS3A-04M002Battery model NO : PA3534U-1BRS
It died a few days ago and refuses to boot, press the power button -> power LED glows briefly and goes out.
As it's a smart battery you can't boot directly off the AC adaptor because it's expecting a signal over the SMBus (IIRC) power LED doesn't even light up with A/C only with the battery is removed.
I believe it's the battery.
First because i disassembled the laptop, cleaned it, and put it back together, nothing seemed wrong with other system components.
Second, it's only a small 3620mAh Li-ion that (AFAIK) hasn't been changed since the laptop was bought (roughly 2011/2012) so im thinking the charge cycles have been well and truly used up.
OK no problem, searched around online using the battery model number (above), found a replacement

Cool, battery's enroute, should be here in the next few days.

Recently got a Satellite L500-1DT for my Mum who's learning to use a computer for the first time and everything works apart from the built in webcam, of which was a big part of the decision in buying it.

The blue light comes on and it records sound but not any images. It also doesn't take the photo shot either, and in both cases just shows the cloudy sunset image that appears to be a defualt shot on the program. I've tried troubleshooting for her but there's nothing in the help guide that tells you how to fix it if it's not working.
The software was already preloaded when it was bought (we got it online) and I don't want to uninstall it as I don't think we have a disc.

Hi buddy!

I?m not quite sure but in my opinion you should try to reinstall the webcam driver. Just check the Toshiba page for an update:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com

But before you install the newest version, remove the old one first and restart the notebook.

Regarding the disk that you mean, as far as I know Toshiba notebook will not delivered with ?recovery disk?. That means you have to create it yourself using Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator. This disk contains an image about ?factory settings?. This is the same version as you have started the notebook the first time.

By the way: Normally after the first start you should get a message like this. Can you confirm this?

Answer:HDMI not working on Satellite L500-19Z

Hi

Did you try the Fn + F5 option?
This switch the video output to external monitor or TV.
You have to press this several times in order to choose TV.

Set also BIOS to default settings and test it again

My Satellite L500 screen is not working. I can connect laptop to a monitor and use ok but the screen on the laptop is blank.

Have I done something to cause this?

Answer:Screen is not working on my Satellite L500

I don?t think so.
If you cannot switch back to notebook?s display using FN+F5 I?m afraid there is some hardware problem.

Either is the problem with display cable or display itself. Fact is that notebook must be disassembled and all this must be checked.
You can contact nearest Toshiba service and ask for help.

My built in web cam doesnt seem to be working, I discovered this last week and i've tried a few solutions such as uninstalling then reinstalling the driver but that work.

Also I delete my system restores to save space so I can't really go back to when it did work.
I don't think that i've installed any webcam drivers lately so I don't think it was that.

Help?

Answer:Satellite L500-1WG - Built in web cam is not working

Hmmmm.....what can be done now?
Generally speaking webcam driver reinstall should help but you have tried it already.

Try to remove web camera application again, clean registry and all entries there, restart notebook and try to install right webcam driver again.
I really don?t know what else you can try.

Hello Everyone

I have a problem, suddenly, without doing anything, my *FN keys stop working*. First the luminosity adjustment still worked without appearing the bar on the top of the screen, but when I reboot the computer not even that works, nothing related with the FN key works.

My biggest problem is that my computer is a Toshiba Satellite L500-13W and *i can only activate Wireless pressing FN+F8*. I can't stay with this problem much more. I already looked in this forum and in other sites but none of the solutions have solved my problem.
I hope you can help me.

Thanks in Advance.

Firstly; please check if the touchpad has not been disabled accidently.
Check FN + F9. This function enables and disables the touchpad.

Furthermore you can go to control panel -> mouse -> Device settings
Here you should also check if the touchpad is on or off.

Good Morning,

I noticed that my Satellite L500-19X's hard disk was on it's way out so I have bought a replacement. I used the tool on the machine to create 2 restore DVD's to re-install the system.

The restore seems to run ok, working through both disks etc. It finishes, asks me to remove the media and the machine reboots.

The Windows 7 startup begins, but get's to "Setup is applying system settings" and I get a message stating "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer's hardware."

Does anyone have any ideas? I've run the restore a couple of times with the same result. I'm rather surprised that the restore CD's are essentially useless.

Answer:Satellite L500-19x - Restore disks not working

Is this first time that you have used recovery discs?
If your old disc still works somehow try to reinstall OS using HDD recovery procedure - [http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD9102IR0000R01.htm] - just to see if the same will happen again.

It is not easy to say what is wrong there but maybe by disc creation some bits were not saved on the right place. Who knows? ?:|

My USB boards stopped working so I got another board for an L500 and suspect it is incompatible. The board fits fine but once a USB is entered it has trouble reading them. A iPhone or an MP3 will charge for example but you wont be able to open the devices folder and edit/see content.

I have tried disabling the drivers and completely removing them and turning off the computer, waiting 15mins and then turning back on but I keep getting "device malfunctioned" messages.

To be honest I don't think anyone will be able to help you with this.

Hi,

About 2 weeks I have a new L500-19E with Windows 7 and it worked fine. But since a few days I have trouble with my microphone, no matter if I use the internal or an external headset/mic. The issue is that it seem to work for a few seconds only, e.g. trying a call via skype, teamspeak etc. but people only hear my hello and a few more words, then they only hear me very quite. The settings all seem to be fine and I already downloaded/installed the newest realtek drivers but nothing helps.

Does anyone has an idea what the issue can be and how to fix?

Is there any solutin, or will there be a BIOS update for it?

Answer:Satellite L500 (PSLJTE) - Intel Centrino Advanced n 6230 not working.

Sounds like the notebook is not compatible with the radio switch in the 6230, and the additional Bluetooth feature may also be causing an issue.

I doubt support would be added for Wifi cards not supplied from the factory so you may need to use an earlier Intel card such as the 5100 or one of the other cards used in the PSLJTE range.

Anyways, onto the issue. A few months back I, unfortunately tripped over my power cord and spilled an entire glass of wine on my poor laptop. Luckily, my spouse was able to dry it out relatively well, and it booted up perfectly fine. The only exception was, my keyboard didn't really work, and my touchpad mouse doesn't work at all.

I bought a usb wireless keyboard and mouse and recently bought a new keyboard. She installed it, and lo and behold, a few keys still didn't work. Fast forward to today. Without thinking, I reached over and used a few buttons before realizing that a few that weren't working -were-.

Testing it out further, I realized that ALL the keys were functioning! HUZZAH!

Then I shift over further onto the sofa, and the it stopped working again. Annoyed, I had my spouse reopen the laptop to check it's connection, thinking that maybe it wasn't plugged in fully. Alas, it was.

Hello,
I have a Toshiba Satellite notebook computer, model # PSM60C-CD400E. I am not sure if my D: Drive is damaged. The computer does not recognize the d drive. When I go to "My Computer" the D: drive does not appear. Hence I cannot play any CD's or DVDs.
I took it to a repair technician and he examined the computer. He told me that he believes the problem is caused by a virus. He told me that my norton was outdated, ( a version from 2005) and that the computer would not peform a full virus scan. When he performed a virus scan, it would stop at file # 400 or something like that.
However I believe he is incorrect. I did full virus and system scan and Norton searched over 500,000 files and no virus was found. I am using Rogers High speed internet and they give you Norton antivirus with the package. I recently (about two months ago) reinstalled Norton on the computer.
I would like to wipe the computer using the recovery dvd/cd, however as my D drive is not recognized, i cant even do this.
Does anyone know what is causing this problem, or what i should do? I would like to wipe the computer, as this is what the technician recommended. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Answer:toshiba satellite shut down nothing working

It is more or less impossible to diagnose this sort of fault, without having the laptop and being able to run tests.
Clearly, as you have already established there is a serious issue either with the processor, motherboard or the power circuits.
The first thing to establish is - is the power supply good.
Also is the battery good.
When it was working was the fan running and was the laptop overheating - are the cooling vents
clean.
Overheat would cause the shutdown and whilst it may recover the first time, it does not mean it will do so a second time.
The same applies to a fried capacitor. When the capacitor goes open circuit the first time it may well recover when it cools down, but it will most surely go again and then will not recover.

You are I think, in a situation where this site is unlikely to be able to assist.
I would depending on the accessibility on that Toshiba, check the seating of the hard drive, the ram and have a look at the state of the cooling vents.

I would try a boot without the battery and with a known good Power supply

I would start with a close read of the manual - if you do not have it see this link.

The mouse cursor is stuck on the left side of the screen and i have to use the keyboard to navigate, even a Bluetooth mouse won't work there.. That tells me that is not a windows issue but that also tells me that is not a hardware issue either because it works in windows when i enable it in the settings.. I also have to use the bluetooth mouse for linux as it doesn't work at all..

For now you might try Booting from an External DVD Drive (USB DVD Drive). You would also have to make sure you setup the External Drive as a Boot Drive in your CMOS Setup.

The system emits a dull click sound when a key is pressed but not character is processed on screen.

Anybody have any idea how I might troubleshoot or fix this issue?

Thanks in advance

A friend was using a USB jump drive on my laptop. For some reason the monitor stopped working. We used the jump drive on a desktop and the same thing happened, but this time when we removed the jump drive the monitor started working again.

I can see the desktop when I start in safe mode, but I'm not sure what needs to be done.

Thanks for the help.

Answer:Toshiba satellite monitor not working

You said, "I can see the desktop when I start in safe mode, but I'm not sure what needs to be done."

I have to assume that you are talking about the Laptop here, since you say the Desktop healed itself after the Jump Drive was removed.

I suspect that 'somehow' the installed driver for the monitor got hosed. When use boot in Safe Mode default drivers are used....different than during a Windows normal boot in most cases...for just this reason.

Delete the monitor from the system via Device Mgr and reboot. Windows should reinstall it and its correct Driver. If the stored version of the driver is hosed, you may have to get a fresh one off of the manufacturer's website OR do a System Repair OR a System Restore back to a known good date/time. Try the Restore BEFORE the Repair, it's easier.

The CD/DVD Driver in my Satellite A50 Laptop (TEAC DV-W24E) won't read CDs or DVDs and doesn't appear on My Computer, when I checked the hardware, it says that Windows has properly loaded the driver but the hardware cannot be found (code 41). I don't really know what to do, should I consider uninstalling the driver?? thing is I don't know how to reinstall it, and even though I know plenty about PCs, this, for me, has been an issue and I don't know what to do. HELP!!!!

Uh... I guess no one wants to help me in here, or they're having a bad day, since I've seen really nice tips on the other threads. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was using my computer a few weeks ago to transfer music from some old CDs to my iTunes and all of a sudden my drive stopped working. It won't play CDs (burned or regular), or DVDs. There are NO error messages when I go into control panel, etc. I've tried everything short of replacing the drive. PLEASE HELP!!
 

Answer:Toshiba Satellite dvd/cd-rom drive not working

I think maybe replacing the drive might be the solution.

Toshiba Satellite A205
Windows Vista Home Premium

I just bought a Toshiba Satellite A205 from my friend's father. I've been using it for about a week now and today the DVD RW drive is not recognized by Windows. I've rebooted multiple times, and checked the Device Manager as well. I used the Toshiba PC Diagnosis Tool and that doesn't even recognize that there is a disc drive. I had been using the drive to watch a DVD just hours before this happened. The drive will not open and the light on the drive itself is blinking orange.

Hi,My brother's Laptop refuses to start up, It won't even let me get into Safe Mode by pressing F8, I have to hold the power on button but when I let go the power light comes on for about a second but then disappears.This happened after It asked him to do a System Restore at start-up, but then it didn't boot up after that, Any help?

Answer:Toshiba L500-DT1 - Won't Start Up

did he make the recovery disks?if not try holding down the 0 button while powering up.keep the 0 button held down and see if you can get the repair screen up that way.you will need to have the ac adapter plugged in.

Hello,

I have a Toshiba Satellite L500-19E and Win XP and I have a big problem. I can?t see the key F8 on the display. The other keys are ok. I can?t explain why because I haven?t changed anything on my Laptop.

Please help me because I need the key F8 to start WLAn and to enter the web.

Thanks
Renate

Answer:Re: Toshiba Satelite L500-19E, I canīt see F8

Hi, dude

As I understand, pressing Fn+F8, it's not displayed. Please, go to the Toshiba driver page <a href=http://smiles2k.net/><img src=http://i.smiles2k.net/lol_smiles/1_011.gif border=0></a>

http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp

And update (reinstall) the Vap utility and flashcard support. It should work.

also, try restart Toshiba Flash Cards (start > all programs > Toshiba) and press the FN keys several times

Hi I have a Toshiba Satellite L350 Laptop with Windows XP Professional. I have no idea if I am in the right category but here is my issue. I can not activate any of my function keys. This is very problematic because the function key turns on the switch for the laptops WIFI, I can not connect to the internet through WIFI without it. According to the Toshiba forums it is a driver issue related to the TVAP (Toshiba Value Added Package). I have tried downloading the drivers from Toshiba's sight but none seem to open correctly. I think I need to delete the TVAP currently on my laptop but have no idea how to do this. Again my guesses above are summations from 4 hours of reading forums from other sights. I honestly have no idea what is wrong and inherited this laptop from a family member 2 days ago, in an attempt to allow me to work from home to help me with meeting a deadline for work. Anyone familiar with this issue your help would be greatly appreciated.

I recently got a virus on my computer and resorted to reimaging the computer using the recovery discs that came with my machine. All went fine at first. I was able to use the DVD/CD drive to install several applications. Right after I installed software for my wireless-USB network, my DVD/CD drive disappeared from my drives screen. (I actually discovered this because I realized I installed the wireless-USB software by mistake, and I was trying to install the wireless-N software instead.) Now when I insert a CD, I can hear it turning, but then it stops and does nothing.

I have Windows Vista. Should I uninstall the wireless-USB network software since I don't need it? What else can I do without reimaging the computer again?

Toshiba Satellite L650-12Q
Windows 7 64bit

I am attempting to re-install Windows using the Toshiba HDD Recovery software on my hard disc in order to restore the computer to factory settings.
I followed the procedure to do this in System Recovery Options, but received the following message:

"The recovery of the operating system is impossible!
Could not find HDD Recovery folder on second drive of the first hard disk. There is no valid HDD Recovery environment on this computer."

Further details:
Prior to doing the above, I backed up the system and files and folders using AOMEI Backupper. I then made the mistake of merging partitions C: D: and E:, E: contained the HDDR files.

After trying the above recovery and receiving the message above, I re-installed the system file I had backed up to an external hard disc, which resulted in a copy of C: drive and E: drive containing the HDDR files.
Unfortunately, when I tried to recover the OS, the same message appeared.

I then tried to use a System Restore disc I had created a few weeks ago, but found that for some reason that CD is blank.

The good news is that the computer still works - slowly - and the HDDR files appear to be still there but, for some reason, inaccessible.

What are my options? I want to go back to initial factory settings so that I can start afresh and re-install the programmes and files that I want. (I have backed up all my files and have installation discs for programmes.)

Answer:Satellite L650-12Q - Toshiba HDD Recovery not working

In your case the situation is clear: HDD recovery installation doesn't work?
If you want to have notebook with ?factory settings? you have one option only: for recovery image installation you must use recovery installation disc.

If I understand you right you don?t have it, right?
But you can order it on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

I have a Toshiba Satellite L10-B with Windows 8.1, which I bought for my wife. The complementary telephone support period has expired, and I need help.

Ever since I bought the computer, I have been wondering how to check for Toshiba updates. I eventually found out there is a program called Toshiba Service Station that is supposed to check for updates automatically, but I had not even seen that program, or any notifications from it.

I went looking for it using the search feature, and now I know where to find it.

I just today tried to manually check for Toshiba updates using Toshiba Service Station, but it is coming up with an error message to the effect that the program could not initialize, and that I would have to reboot or re-install the program. I tried re-installing the program from the support website, and I'm still getting the same error message.

Where do I go to from here?

Answer:Satellite L10-B - Toshiba Service Station not working

I'm currently having a different problem but with my Toshiba Service Station on my Toshiba Satellite P70-A laptop 8.1 notebook/laptop.

I had when Windows 10 free upgrade became available. Had upgraded it to Windows 10. I've been having a couple of issues with my Toshiba since the upgrade. But I'll address them in another thread.

The problem I'm having is the Toshiba Service Station as well. I got a notification alert in Notification Center from Toshiba Service Station. That there was some new updates to download and install. I opened Toshiba Service Station. Clicked the Download button. Waiting for the Download Progress bar to progress across. But it wasn't downloading as the download progress bar wasn't even downloading a small file size update for one of Intel drivers. I'm like waiting and waiting for the progress bar to fill. But only see an inch of the bar filled. The update was only over 300mb to download. My internet speed is fast. So I'm not sure what's taking so long to download.

Please tell me what I should do?

hi, I have a toshiba a300 laptop and it has now stopped working. it powers on and then goes onto a screen stating its had problems and should i start normally or try to repair. if i select either of these options it loads windows (although the windows picture sign is not showing) and then goes onto a blank screen. Any help is much appreciated.

Answer:toshiba satellite a300 laptop not working

It worked properly before? Last time it appeared to function properly?

Can you boot into safe mode?

You have restore capability?

What was the last activity you conducted on the system...before the system stopped working properly?
