Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2386 Notebook

Toshiba a135 s2386

After turning on the power button it sounds like the hard drive fires up for a second but no activity on the lights along the case. There is nothing on the screen at all...just a black screen. I took out the ac adapter and took out the battery and nothing??

I just got my computer back for toshiba repair depot and 2 days after getting it back.....this happens. Help please!!

    Likewise: I went to a toshiba authorized dealer to fix for free a bios password error. They quickly fixed that but now you turn it on to a black blank screen and that's where it stays. What is this?

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A135 S2386 that is seeming to do the same thing, I have tried removing the battery and no go, I moved it a while ago and the bios screen showed up but that was as far as I got! I would think that the hard drive was asleep, or dead, but I am not sure. I received a bios update notification on January 11th and it was listed here

Toshiba 350b satallite laptop won,t boot up have power but no hard drive activity

First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Hi i have a toshiba a135-s2386 laptop, when i press the power switch the main power light comes on and fan spins but the pc does not post at all

Try doing this: Turn off the computer. Disconnect your charger. Take out the battery. Then without the charger and the battery, press and hold the power button for around 10-15 seconds to drain all the excess power inside it. Reconnect your charger then turn it on. If it turns on, then good. You may put the battery back afterwards. If it did not turn on then it could either be software or hardware failure already.

You most likely have a faulty hard drive, especially if it is making a clicking sound.
You wil need to purchase a new hard drive and install Windows again with the Toshiba Recovery CD.
