Black Screen of Death

Cannot find help on recovering from the "black screen of death" when laptop will not boot  and displays a blank screen with just a cursor.  It is not the command prompt because it does not take any commands.  NB205-N311/W does not have port to boot from CD.

Re: Black Screen of Death

I guess I need to order recovery media online from Toshiba.  Can I save money by ordering the recovery media on DVD then copy to a USB stick?

Try the suggestions in this article.

 

What can I do if my Windows 7 or Windows Vista laptop won't start?

 

Copying them directly to a USB stick does not usually work.
