Black Screening when I try to plug it in

Toshiba Satellite l305-s5899 notebook

Specs: Windows Vista
My computer works, ermm, FAIRLY! ok when I have it unplugged. I recently took it to a repair shop and he said I had a bad memory chip and he took it out, he has worked on my computer 3 times now and not really fixed it. This last time bringing it home my cord has a small hole in it and when I plug my computer in when it is turned on it will black screen and I can not do anything.

Any ideas on what this could be would be a life saver! Thank you in advance for any answers.

'This last time bringing it home my cord has a small hole in it'

What exactly do you mean? Did they give you back an old power cord with the ground pin pulled out of it?

Ifr you paid the yoyo to fix it, take it back untill it works properly. You said it is a repair shop.

The cord is my own, it was fine before I took it to him. Now there is a hole in the actual cord that looks like he stuck a needle through it. When I take it back he just says that I screwed it up again.

did you pay this person? I have no idea why he would poke a hole into a power cord.

Tell him if he doesn't fix it properly you will contact the Better Business Bureau and also put an rant in your local newspaper...he'll fix it then...believe me.

yea we payed him. But I dont have the proof he did it. He will say I did it to get money from him or something.

Ok, let's troubleshoot your PC.
Unplug any usb, printer cord etc...just have the keyboard and mouse, video cable and power cord plugged in and try booting it up...also make sure there is NOTHING in your floppy drive or your CD drives.
DON'T use any wireless mouse or keyboard, use the ones that came with your PC.

1-When you power it up, do you see any lights flashing on your tower?
2-Can you hear the hard drive spinning?
3-Does the light on your monitor change from yellow to green?
4-Do you see the PC logo on the screen when you boot it up?
5-Does the black screen have a little dash in the left corner that blinks?
