Try disconnect the router and connect your laptop to the dsl modem. If there is connection then the router may have problems. If the problem persists then go to toshiba service center. They will certainly solve your problem. It might be that there are problems on hardware or drivers.

That is a bad situation to be in out of warranty; There is no easy quick or cheap fix for this; This would be something for a Local PC Shop to fix unless you are savvy enough, and have the precision hand of a surgeon. You can conceivably fix it yourself.

Long story short; You are correct; My first guess is a broken solder point somewhere on the motherboard or Power Supply;

Power Supplies are a cheap fix, but if you do not find the problem in the Power Supply you will have to replace the motherboard.

Most local PC shops will suggest buying a new laptop because the cost of repair if it's the motherboard is nearly equal to a new laptop.


Find an alternative source of power to test the laptop in other words eliminate the AC Adapter and battery from the equation; Test using a different AC Adapter only, see if the Laptop boots up; If it does, it's more than likely either a bad battery or bad AC Power Adapter.

It's a shot in the dark but the Power Jack may be loose and when power is applied to it the heat buildup may secure the connection to the motherboard which allows you to boot. (Although this would be a first time explanation regarding this) Usually power jack issues are intermittent start ups. Replacing of the power jack; cheap, you can buy the part yourself; again if you are good with soldering you can fix it yourself as well; You will have to disassemble the laptop completely to do this. This repair is expensive at a local PC shop in excess of $100-200 or more.

A motherboard replacement can cost in excess of $300 or more at a local PC shop.

Hope this helps or at least guides you in the right direction.

can u please share any pic or video of the problem , most of the times shaking display is caused by faulty display panel. some time the problem is due to dry solder of some components situated at the controller board which is mounted at back side of the panel, which can be rectified by blowing some hot air (be aware to follow all the precaution as hot air can melt the surrounding components or bare parts of display panel), else we have to change the panel.

The answer to this is simple, Windows has a few nifty little tricks up its sleeve when it comes to a low battery, one of my youtube videos should clarify this for you :)

Have you checked your computer? Does it turn on when you press the power button? Does the power button or lights in your computer lit or is it blinking? Can you still see the Toshiba logo or nothing (just blank)?

You have two possible issues here:

1. Power issue
2. Computer part problem.

You need to check both. Start with power issue. Check if computer is getting any power.

Let me know

There are a couple of things that it could be , 1, A loose ribbon cable in the back of the monitor, due to a drop, bang, jar, etc. 2, There is a tiny switch the controls the backlighting when you open and close the lid of the laptop, it will stick due to dust, dirt, or hinges being loose or damaged. 3, Your backlighting has quit altogether. If you can see a "ghost image" on the screen in a bright light, it's the backlighting or switch. If you see nothing it could be the switch, loose connection, or the monitor is out. It's difficult to say exactly without troubleshooting the problem.

First of all you will need to install the CD provided to you with the camera. It is not alwys necessary but since you can't so you will have to do that first and then you can easily download the photos from your camera. Also alternately you can remove the memory card from your camera and directly copy the photos to your laptop , no need to install the CD in this case..

This sounds like a simple loose connection but getting to it may be anything but simple. To get to that connector you will need to open the laptop and remove the keyboards as well as the upper cover near the monitor. I am curious as to how you are supporting the Monitor though. It should not flop around freely. Or are you supporting the center of the monitor somehow? There is a light bar at the base of the monitor itself that if not working it will not illuminate the monitor making it appear as though the monitor isn't working. If that connection comes loose it will often give you this symptom. Opening the monitor is even harder than opening the laptop itself.
