Toshiba Qosmio F15 AV201 - permenant hibernation

I have a Toshiba F15 AV201 Qosmio laptop that appears to have gone into a permenant hibernation state. I was using it the other night while watching TV and was inactive long enough for the Toshiba screen saver to come on. I was thinking about getting it active again when I dozed off. Upon awakening, I found I had a blank screen (black) and the computer would not revive itself, neither with the use of the hot keys nor with the mouse. I have removed the battery and left it unplugged hoping that it would come back up upon powering up, but nothing. The power light comes on, it will briefly access the hard drive (at least the light comes on briefly - have tried two different hard drives), it will access the Multi-Drive but will not boot from it, and the cooling fan will come on occasionally - all of the symptoms of the computer being in hibernation mode - it just will not come back up.

About the only thing I haven't tried yet is pulling the COMOS battery from the motherboard - which will be the next step unless someone can give me a better solution - I hope?!?

Thanks in advance - Ghost

    Problem solved - but not like I wanted it to be. Would have removed this post earlier but did not know how.



    I purchased an aftermarket warranty when I bought the computer so Square Trade now has my broken computer and I have my money back.



    Good luck to everyone else who is having this problem because the only place I got to over the last couple of months was Frustrationville.

Have you tried downloading the most recent driver from the Toshiba support site? The site can be found here: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp Select your laptop's make and model, and look for the category "Driver" and "Sound". There should be a link to download the ADI WDM Audio Driver. Install that driver on your system and reboot.

Toshiba QOSMIO F15-AV201 PC Notebook that keeps on shutting down. The notebook will not fire up again after it has shut down or frozen. I just look at a flashing line in the top left corner. Any advice?


Hi

Thank you for your query

Please can you try the following

Remove battery
Remove wall charger
Press and hold the power button down on the laptop fro 30 seconds
Plug in wall charger and power up the laptop
After approx 5 minutes slot in the battery and see if the issue occurs again

If it does then from the description it would seem the laptop is overheating, so plase can you ensure there is plenty of ventalltion around the laptop and if it still continues you will need to book laptop into a reputable PC shop to swa out the heatsink

Tosibha qosmio f15 av201 does not turn on when power button pressed


i am no whizz, but i think, just THINK maybe you should get some friend or relative to check the wiring to the fan and the power button, maybe when cleaning the fan, the wires were losen, as the button is millimeters away from the fan.

i hope it might help, if not i already said, i'm no whizz
