This is the second time this has happened with my Toshiba Mini Netbook. When I restart it, it will shut down but then not come back up. It seems like it's running but the screen is blank and the power button is lit. The first time it happened I shut it down via the power button, then turned it back on while pressing F2 and it came up properly. Now, however, it is not doing it. The screen remains blank. What could be causing this and how do I fix it? It is running Windows XP.
Drain the 'flea power':
disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery and press the power button for a few seconds.
I'm not familiar with the Toshiba, but ASUS Eee PC do have a reset button (a small hole at the bottom of the case, accessible with a pin).
This happened to me too a few times on my TOSHIBA netbook. I unplugged it, pulled the battery for about 10 secs, and then put it back in. Hasn't happened since. I am running Windows 7 Starter.
