Thanks for replying!
I've tried taking the battery out, rebooting it, pressing power button for a minute, pressing f1&f5 buttons, and f9, but no cursor appears.
I appreciate your kindness.You are helping an elderly lady who is flummoxed by this!

You say that you tried the useful tips which I presume were not that useful after all.

So I don't repeat the same tips and waste your time and mine. What is it that you have tried.

Dear Tired Tootsies,

I must tell you that the majority of Laptop issues on Kioskea that are difficult to solve are related to Toshiba, a breed of their own. The last advice my father gave me was: "Son, stay away from Toshiba!"

I trust that when you removed the battery that you also unplug the power cable before holding the power button. Most often, this gets rid of what is called "flea" power and then the laptop breaths again.

I have two solutions for you and I think the second one is the best.

1. You can try restoring to factory out of the box settings by following the instructions hereunder:

https://ccm.net/faq/4811-restore-toshiba-laptop-to-factory-settings

2. Your laptop is under warranty, take it back for repair or exchange.

Good luck

You needed not to pencil it down as the how-to section can be downloaded in pdf format, saved and printed from whatever computer you wrote your messages in.

P.S. You are most welcome and please let me know which solution you opted for.

Dear Tired Tootsies,

The pleasure was all mine and believe that I will not share it with anyone.:-)

God save the Queen.
