Markings appear on
the computer's
display panel.

Hard Disk Drive

Computer does not
boot from Hard Disk
Slow performance

Optical Disc Drive

For further information, please refer to
User's Manual
These marks may have come from contact with the
keyboard and Touch Pad while the display panel
has been closed. You should try to remove the
marks by gently wiping the display panel with a
clean dry cloth or, if this fails, with a good quality
LCD screen cleaner. In this latter instance you
should always follow the instructions with the
screen cleaner and always ensure you let the
display panel dry properly before closing it.
Check to see whether there is a disc in the optical
disc drive - if so remove it and try to start the
computer again.
If this has no effect, check the Boot Priority
Options setting within the TOSHIBA System
The files on the Hard Disk Drive may be
fragmented - in this instance you should run the
disk Defragmentation utility to check the condition
of your files and the Hard Disk Drive. Please refer
to the operating system's documentation or online
Help File for further information on operating and
using the Defragmentation utility.
As a last resort you should reformat the Hard Disk
Drive and then reload the operating system and all
other files and data. If you are still unable to
resolve the problem, contact TOSHIBA Support.

    I purchased a c55 laptop and have no passwords so I can't do anything with it can you help me?

    I purchased the laptop for a song due to a crushed LCD screen
    A few months later a salvaged LCD screen became available but the chassis was a little bit larger at the hinge assembly by an 3/16
    After removing the glass from the lid chassis it fit into the rightful housing.
    O​riginally I'd removed the assembly hinges from the body thus opening the clamshell completely as well the LCD screen associated connector and the black and white (assuming) WIFI connection wires which is the main focus of this post

    I cannot find a service manual/vid​eo/informa​tional of the exact location as the ends appear to snap into a given contact hole
    After chasing the wires through their gides I am left with ambiguous options at best
    Any info would be much appreciate​d ~THX

    This Toshiba labtop satelite c50 is a faulty machine. On the manual it says it had an eject button for to open the CD drive unfortunat​ely it does have one.
    PC world sold me this computer some months ago and I recommend not to use this shop due to selling faulty goods.
    Sta​y away from Toshiba laptop because the faulty has not been rectified.
