For those of you with a máy tính xách tay that does not have sầu a removable battery, this might help. Hold down the power button lớn shut off the computer, but DON"T TAKE YOUR FINGER OFF THE POWER BUTTON. Hold it there for about 60 seconds more, & then remove sầu your finger. Then, press the power button again to turn the computer on. I did this, và it worked for me :)

the one by oldturkey above worked for me! :)



Did a lot of searching, & by crikey oldturkey"s one worked for me too just now. Seems bizarre, almost lượt thích voodoo, but this seemed lượt thích the easiest solution from all the other ones I found khổng lồ try.

Note: my wife pulled the battery out & it still didn"t work, but I followed those instructions exactly & it"s perfect now first time!



I thought it might be over for my máy vi tính but I tried what oldturkey03 suggested và it worked on my first attempt. If you still kiểm tra this post, thanks a bunch oldturkey03.

Monkies4kids



oldturkey03"s method worked perfect for me. However, the windows seems to lớn have a problem loading up, the system probably fell. Installed a new copy và is working fine now, thank you.



I did as above sầu old turkey o3, worked first time, I had been working on my daughters toshicha for a few hours went away , came baông xã & blank screen. Even after forcing shut down still nothing. I thought a trip khổng lồ the computer shop was in order!! But thought I"d google the problem & was directed khổng lồ here and the rest is history baông xã up và running so so easy thank you old turkey03

Stupid question what is a Function key



I got my laptop baông xã 3rd time round. 1. was screen 2nd was motherboard 3rd was Harddrive. After putting everything baông chồng inkhổng lồ Toshiba Laptop everything seemed fine until I switched it off. Later when restarting keyboard lit up but screen black. I tried all the methods above until FN F5 idea and it came to life. 1 thing is for certain...Toshibố Satellite is a dud or I was unlucky lớn get that 1 oddball that just gives problems. mustve been the máy tính that was last job on a Friday knockoff. cheers K49 AMBO.



nothing worked for me. Only time i get it to lớn work is to remove heatsink replace paste and heat with hair drier before i put it back together. Works for a while then i turn it off & when i come baông chồng t turn it on it is blank screen but making noise as if working.



I tried the once from above, but none of them worked, but this one did. Thanks

I have sầu a small electronics repair shop out of my home page and just yesterday checked in a third Toshiba machine with this same problem: failed GPU. Cause: overheating.

Each owner has said the same thing: over the past few months, every once in a while the screen stayed blachồng during boot-up, but a restart or something similar like removing the battery, letting it sit overnight, or power-cycling made it boot correctly. Eventually nothing would help & they brought their laptops in for repair.

On the first machine I had to lớn troubleshoot for quite a while before determining the issue, including everything mentioned here in this thread, until finally deciding to replace the mobo over re-soldering the GPU (which I incorrectly assumed was my only option). On the second unit I reflowed using a hairdryer, followed by my kitchen oven. Big job. Didn"t want khổng lồ have to bởi that with this machine, so I"m borrowing a heat gun tomorrow and using this procedure found on YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cP2QOXNM...

(Warning: rated PG due lớn mild cursing)

This is a known issue with the laptops in this line and while one of the other suggestions might work & solve your specific problem, be on the watch for the graphics khổng lồ eventually die due lớn dust and/or heat buildup in the future. It"s HIGHLY recommended lớn use a cooling pad under these systems (some of the Toshiba User Manuals even go so far as to lớn tell you that you NEED khổng lồ use one rather than just SUGGEST it.) và to lớn periodically tear-down and clean out the inside around the heatsink, tín đồ, etc. You"ll find the dustier or dirtier your normal environment, the more often you"ll need lớn bởi vì it---at least twice per year is a good start, especially if you own pets that shed.

If you would like a copy of my t-shoot danh sách khổng lồ rule out all the other possible problems that can cause the black screen of doom, message me và I"ll be glad lớn giới thiệu it. Otherwise, assume your machine needs the gpu reflowed và don"t trash it!

The hard disk, OS, screen, etc. are all still fine & in working order (unless you"ve inadvertently pressed the appropriate keys và don"t something to the bgame ios or something weird lượt thích that.)

IMO, Toshibas are good machines. I still have sầu my original with Windows 95 on it! I own several models & have found, with the proper maintenance, that they"ll last well past 10 years. (Believe sầu it or not, I"ve sầu found that Dells & Acers are the next best performers ahy vọng abusive users. LOL.) Every manufacturer has weaknesses: none are perfect. Don"t expect lớn not have sầu issues with electronics because you"ll always kết thúc up disappointed. Heat, dust and mishandling are the three biggest killers.

Good luông xã - I hope this helps some of you.

Exactly, The same thing happening. The Toshitía Skullcandy are mostly affected. The GPU is dyeing after a certain time. I have seen many in these days. Everything else will work but you wont get a display. And also others stated in previous comments there is no BIOS/CMOS battery in these models, at least the Satellite L50-C models. It is difficult sometimes khổng lồ determine what is causing the issue. Believe me và Mary as describing in the post an end user can not vị much more in this situation. Thanks for your post Mary much appreciated the time lớn point the comtháng fault in these machines.
