    My Toshiba satellite notebook won't boot for some reason. It lights up, but I get no screen and no hard drive activity. It won't boot even with the recovery disc in, however it will still play c.d.s'. I'm running xp with a p4. This just happened with no warning. Anyone have similar experience and resolution?

    Can you enter the bios and see if your hard drive is recognized and that your cd is set as first boot device?

    The screen will not power up. I know though, that my dvd/cd is set as 1st boot device.
