How to repair a Toshiba laptop that won’t boot, black screen white curser, after the toshiba logo

This is a pictorial on how to get a toshiba laptop to boot again.
The fault was, Shows the toshiba logo, then a white cursor on a black screen.
This unit is an L300, though the fault is common on many toshiba laptops.

The cause is a corrupted bios setting memory, and can only be rectified by the removal of a hard to reach and soldered in place bios battery. Remove the battery and the problem goes away, Watch the video.
The song is resurrection 🙂

    Google "towel trick". It's a pretty common method for gaming consoles.

    It worked for me. By the way, that laptop is still working today. I had bought another laptop after my old one broke, then surprised it lasted so long. So now I have two laptops. I keep them both on laptop coolers most of the time.

    Mine showed the flashing underscore and would make popping noises. After taking the heatsync of to attempt a reflow, the computer doesn't even show the toshiba logo. But the LEDS work. Would this fix it?

    Hello, I have an acer and sometimes it does the "black screen white line" thing, especially when I first turn it on in the morning. Changed the bios battery, removed the hdd (booted from cd), ran memtest and goldmemory… got any opinion?

    Stupid question, but why do you have to remove the socket if you are removing the battery? The battery holds the BIOS, so you should just have to remove that.

    If none of these fixes actually helped you there's one more you can try. Do the towel trick This worked for me. I don't know for how long. I got my laptop working today and I'm too afraid to even shut it down but at least I got it on and saved all my stuff

    Plug in your laptop turn it on and turn it upside down. Wrap a towel around it kind of tight especially around the vents. Leave it like that for exactly one hour.The laptop will get hot This causes the GPU to reflow. After an hour turn it on.
