Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A200-0ET00X Notebook ?

My toshiba A200 screen occasionally turns black and music also stops. When i try manually restarting my laptop, sometimes it works but most of the time it doesnt boot at all. Sometimes it doesnt even go into the Toshiba screen and stays black. The power light is on but when it stays black, the 4th light wont turn on either.


Answers :

This sounds like a hard drive is, or has failed. Either that or the RAM (memory has gone bad)
\015\012Did you let the laptop overheat? Was it left on for a long time? Or is this just an old machine ?
\015\012I would replace the hard drive, and reload the operating system, that is if you really want to keep the laptop. If that solves it great! Also, did you notice if there are any "beep" noises, or error messages when it acts up? Often times, you can go on the internet and find out what the messages mean.

Blank Screen Worked fine. Had a blue screen and rebooted. On reboot the screen displays nothing. You would not even think it was on. Sometimes it will stay on (when plugged in) and others it will not even begin to boot up regardless of lack of display. It seems like the screen is dead and the machine is struggling without a power lead. Even with the power supply it still displays nothing even if the power lights stay on and it appears to go through booting up (sound). It is a Toshiba l300 laptop
