Question about Toshiba QOSMIO F15-AV201 Notebook
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
