The screen of my laptop Toshiba Satelite A305-S6858 stays blank when I power it on. the processor appears to be (i am not sure, it it rather the fan). It only started a few hours. Please any suggestions would be highly appreciated

Answers :

When you first start you should see a few lights flash on. The power light should be on steady and the one that indicates hard drive should blink off and on as the computer gets what it needs from your hard drive. If you don;t see that or hear any beeps then you may have a serious hard ware problem.
\015\012First thing to try is to hook up an external monitor and turn on the laptop. You might only see a flicker or flash on the external or you may see a proper image. This depends on how your laptop is setup. If you don;t see anything or can't get a monitor to use then you need to check the display on the laptop.
\015\012Turn it on and wait until you think it has taken about the right amount of time to normally boot up. You need lot so f light to do this but look at the screen and see if you can just make out a ghost image. Or what looks like a ghost image. This will look like your desktop or parts of it. It will be quite hard to see unless you get just the right angle and light. If you can see this then your problem is the back light in the laptop display. The ghost image is actually your normal LCD display with the back lights. The LCD creates the image but is too dark to see and the back light shine through it much like a projector does. If this is the problem repairs are about $150 (and up)
\015\012If you don't see any light or images then you can have a cpu problem, a memory problem or a motherboard fuse problem. These are a bit harder to fix as the laptop needs to be completely taken apart.
\015\012The back light is a typical problem on all laptop regardless of make or model. The others usually indicate a more serious problem. For example Satellites are prone to run hot and if the fan or colling doesn't work well enough then the cpu can overheat and be damaged. Ram chips can be replaced if the error in in the external ones not the ones on the motherboard (some models) and fuses are simple to replace but require a tech who can repair surface mount parts.
\015\012Once you have an idea of the problem then you can figure out how or if to get it fixed. Check to see if you have any warranty it will definitely cover this. Have a good idea of what replacement cost is. There are several places that can repair the laptop even if it is out of warranty but you need to watch the cost. I wish I had a better suggestion for you to follow but it seems like your laptop is headed for the shop.
