Toshiba p205-6337 won't turn on

Bought this computer in 8/07 and unfortunately no extended warranty. Although the blue light is on on the front when I plug in the power cord, the system will not turn on...at all. Nothing. No lights, no sounds, nothing. I am not tech savy but I am also broke so if anyone has any ideas, I would be ever grateful. Thank you

Green light on. computer wont turn on


Unfortunately, if the light is on, but the computer won't power on, it means one of two things. Either the power cord is broken in some way and no long sufficient to power the computer, OR the motherboard is dead. You can try to purchase a universal cable from Best Buy for instance, and then return it if it doesn't solve your problem. A motherboard repair would be best done through Acer themselves, although, it can cost over $300.

Toshiba A200 1vo. works on battery but freezes when ac adaptor is inserted then has to be turned off manually-no keys function at all except on/off button.Won't start upon ac adaptor either although...


You say you bought a new adapter--was is a Toshiba adapter? Was it a "generic" one?
You have to be careful, because some adapters have different polarity and could damage the computer.

If you are sure the adapter is OK and is putting out the correct voltage (~18 v.) then disconnect the battery and try running the computer without the battery just using the adapter.

I don't think this is a BIOS problem. The operating system should not affect the function of the adapter.Most likely you have a motherboard problem if all else is working.

Compaq presario v6120us - problem starting up. When I press ON button blue lights come on and flash off and nothing happens. Changed ac adapter for new one and taken battery out held down ON button...


There are two possibilities which are likely to be causing your problem. The first is that there is a fault with your ram and might need replacing. The ON light flashing is frequently cause by ram. If you have 2 ram stick try having them in seperately in the bottom ram slot. There are lots of videos available showing you how to do this. The second, and unfortunately with these laptops, more likely problem is that your motherboard has become corrupt due to the onboard graphics card overheating.
The warranty on some of these was extended because Compaq admitted it was a generic problem but they did not cover all of them and I think the extended warranty cover is not finished. The fault with the graphics card causes the latop to not boot. How long does the light stay on and if you leave the laptop does it turn itself off and try to start again? If it does this and eventually starts, with or wothout display, unfortunately it is your motherboard and it needs to be replaced.

Acer Aspire 150 - bought new 18 months ago and have been told that the motherboard has gone. Is this reasonable and has anyone else had a similar probelm and if so what did you do about it?


Is this reasonable? - no, but possible, yes. I have seen plenty of electronics go bad just a week or two past the warranty, including computers. Unfortunately, about all you can do about it is 1) get a new motherboard installed, or 2) get a new computer and this time buy the extended warranty. By the way, whoever installs your motherboard should be able to easily get your documents/files from the hard drive. You will need to reinstall Windows, and a new motherboard/processor will require a new installation. Just putting the hard drive back in will produce the "blue screen of death" just so you know ahead of time.

Can not turn on


> only 5 months.

Then, it still is under warranty.

Either Wal-Mart or Toshiba will repair it or replace it, at their cost.

P 2133: when turn it on nothing happens, only the blue light on the "on button" comes on. Nothing on the screen and the light for hard drive also does not come on. when turn off Screen blank, I have send...


every motherboard is defective in a computer. It's not good, and yes, it costs $150 + $5 S&H for a new motherboard when the warranty expired, but if it's under the warranty, the costs will be $0 + $5 S&H.

I would recommend buying an extended warranty (3 yrs.) to extend your computer's warranty so that you won't pay $100s, or $1,000s.

Toshiba Satellite M30 - Power Problems only boots when in vertical position


These are known to have a grounding problem between the speakers and mainboard - They were actually sued and eventually settled to extend the warranty. unfortunately the special extenstion program ended a few months ago and toshiba no longer will fix this. The workaround is to add shielding to it.

See this link about it:

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2006/04/06/satellite-m35x-a70-a75-lockup-freezes-reboots/

If that doesnt fix the problem then you may have motherboard problems and at that point it would be best to part this laptop out and replace it.

Lost Recovery CD's


You can request the cd's from Toshiba, although they will charge, the pics etc will be lost unless they can be retrieved by the warranty company, although they will also charge for that.

Hi, Toshiba extended the warranty of the M35 till Nov. of this year for this same problem. If you just contact Toshiba support, they'll rplace the board no charge. I've had a few repaired. They only take a few days. Good luck,
