Toshiba Satellite M65-S821 WONT BOOT UP

When I press the power button on my laptop the blue light comes on for about 5 seconds and then goes off. The computer does not boot or make any noises. Sometimes after several tries the fan will come on for about 5 seconds and then when the blue light goes off the fan goes off. I have gone thru all the usual troubleshooting procedures and suspect it may be a motherboard problem. does anyone have any insights on this? toshiba a205s4777

WONT POWER UP


First you shoult remove the battery (it could be short circuited) then try powering up, if it's not working check the AC adaptor with a multimeter to verify voltage (compare with what it is ritten on the AC adaptor) last thing you should remove everything you can (RAM, HARD DRIVE, NIC's, CD ROM, etc...) than try powering up again if it power's up than put back ONE DEVICE/MODULE AT A TIME TO TARGET THE FAULTY DEVICE. if nothing worked i'm sorry it's dead.

Good luck!

Wireless networks not found


Sometimes Satellites get a little flaky when on battery power. If you haven't already, plug in the power cord with the notebook cold - meaning off for about a minute. Boot the notebook and try to do the setup with the power connected. If that solves it, it should work fine when you switch to battery power. If it doesn't, repost with your results.

Will not turn on, no lights at all


Try to remove the battery, and plug it into the wall. If it then boots, your battery has failed. This happens frequently. If it still wont boot you will need to take to someone to see if the board has died or other issues. Hope this helps

you didn't list what you did do, so you might have already tried this, but I think it's always a good idea to try re-seating the RAM and then try different RAM in the computer if you can. The symptoms seem to be identical to those caused by bad RAM sometimes. It might also be a heating or fan problem which, when detected by the motherboard, activates an auto shut down.

Also, make sure the power supply is producing the proper amperage and consistent voltage. some power adapters provide a signal to the computer, along with power, that is critical as well, so there is a slight possibility that the adapter may be causing the problem. Actually I'd follow this further. If the battery is almost dead and the adapter not working, those are the exact symptoms you'd get. Do you know if the battery is charged and the adapter works?

I'm assuming you've removed all external devices and cards or other ad-ons.

Did you try taking the battery out, unplugging it and pushing the power button 5-10 times? This might help reset some settings.

And, if you already have done any of these, please list them so people, like me, don't waste our time giving you incorrect answers, because you didn't take your time to list what you've done.

Google it first. because look what popped up.

When u send it out, did u take note of what u had.Memory,hard drive(h/d) size, etc. A virus only attacks the software ( changes & or damages ) drivers. If the virus damages the h/d , it is PROBABLE to physically damage it, but not usually possible!! goto the Toshiba web site, u will have to buy it, they don't like to give those things away.
