Hi there

I have a Toshiba Satellite L300D-242 with Windows Vista, bought around 4-5 years ago.
I've had a few problems in the past with adware but never any problems with the machine booting up.

My problem is this: The laptop turned itself off and went I turn it back on, all I get is a black screen. It makes a couple of initial beeps like it always did, and the hard drive LED is on as normal, but there's no other LED activity and the screen is just black. It doesn't even get as far as the Toshiba screen.

I've tried a few of the suggestions from another thread, such as taking out the battery and holding in the Esc key for a minute, then pressing the power button, etc. But nothing has worked for me.

I'm at a loss. Could anybody lend a hand if they have had similar problems.

Thanks in advance

I have same problem. Unplug and take battery out. Hold down the on button for 30 secs. Put battery back in and start it up. If that doesn,t work restore it back to factory setting.

Hello,

Since the lappy seems to boot, it could either a graphic card or a screen issue. To determine where is the issue, I suggest connecting to an external monitor.

Good Morning,

Does the screen turn kind of "gray" when the power comes on?

If the screen turns gray, take it to a qualified technician, they will fix the backlight.

Hi

No, there isn't any change in screen colour at all. Just black all the time. The only signs of live are the hard disk LED and the sound of the fan.
