My computer shut off and won't come back on

When it shut off I tried to get it to come back on but I get nothing. The lights are showing inside the computer. I tried a different plug, different outlet and I get nothing. I had the power supply replaced about 3 weeks ago by someone with the company I had the extended warranty with, which is now expired. I'm not sure what else to try. The computer is 4 1/2 years old,

    it won't turn back on to do anything to it. I get NOTHING....so that's not going to work. I'm wondering if the mother board went out. Would this do this if that's the case?

Most likely your CPU is overheating. Download speedfan from this link. Speedfan monitors the temperature of your CPU. Note the temperature when the PC shuts off on its own. Let me know if this is helpful.

    Sorry I misunderstood your problem. The first culprit is your power supply. Try to swap out your power supply with a know good one and see if the PC boots. Follow the chart on this website http://www.fonerbooks.com/power.htm to troubleshoot your PC.

In my first post I stated I had just had the power supply replaced. The lights do come on inside the computer so it's getting power, it just won't turn on.

Can not get the mac pro osx 10 5 8 to start with the utility disk or with regular start up my on pilot lite keeps blinking


Put the Mac install disk back in. Try pressing command-option-escape to force quit. If nothing happens, then press command-control-power to force a restart. If that doesn't work, press and hold the power button for five seconds or so until the computer shuts down. Power up the computer again, and hold the option key so you can select the instal disc for startup. Run Disk Utility again. Sometimes you get a tangled file reference that requires several tries to undo - this could be calling the sleep routine instead of what it's supposed to do.

The lights inside my car work, until I try to start the car, then nothing works and won't start.


If the lights come back on when you release the key, I would check for a dead cell in the battery and poor connections at the battery and starter.

My computer won't turn on


If you tried turning the laptop on with NO battery but plugged into the mains and you get no response, even no little lights flickering then its possible that something to do with the motherboard (obviously, you might think) but get someone too look inside it if you can, something might be fried.

This clearly shows that you have a defective motherboard and it needs to be replaced. Try contacting Toshiba support for this, hope this computer is still under warranty.

"no signal"


"no signal" means that the monitor is not receiving a video signal from your computer or laptop. This is normal if the compouter is OFF and the monitor is ON. Is the computer still on and connected to the monitor?

Won't start at all


It can be anything from a faulty power jack, to a fried motherboard. Take it back to best buy as soon as you can, and let them take a look. Nothing more you can really do.
