Laptop wont turn on, got green pwr and amb bat but will not fire up


Systems covered: All failing to boot without lighting up display.

Goal of this Solution: Try to determine whether system is (a) booting successfully while failing to light its display (indicating hardware failure in the display), or (b) failing to light the display due to failure to successfully transfer control to ROM BIOS (indicating a motherboard failure).

The fact that the Green power LED, and Amber Battery LED are lit seems to exonerate the laptop power supply (brick) circuitry. Even with a nearly dead battery, a Toshiba Satellite 1135-s1552 should work while plugged into a properly functioning brick.

Here's Toshiba support's (244 page) online PDF version of your laptop manual:
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=434997&rpn=PS113U&modelFilter=1135-S1552&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663

If the HDD (hard disk) activity indicator LED is active after power-on, then your system has actually got past BIOS and is booting - your LCD monitor inverter circuit or Backlight may have burned out - and to use the system, you'll need to connect an external monitor to the RGB monitor port on the back of the system (see illustration on page 32 of User's Guide) to view system activity.
Alternatively, one may attach an analog TV, using the S-Video port on the back of the laptop (see illustration on page 32 of User's Guide).

Once an external monitor is working to display the ROM BIOS part of the boot sequence, you may find that the ROM BIOS is good enough to run a few BIOS-based diagnostics. Run them all - something may indicate the source of the boot failure. Ofttimes, enough of the motherboard remains good to provide interaction with the ROM BIOS, but some motherboard failure will subvert a full boot to Windows/Linux. An example of this type of failure would be a failure of the PCMCIA bus controller, which is vital for booting a disk-resident OS, but unaccessed (except by BIOS diags) when the user interacts with BIOS. Another common failure of this type is main memory (RAM) failure.
A working external monitor/TV also provides a chance to backup important laptop data to a flash drive, sky drive, or CD-RW discs.

If no HDD activity is seen after power-up, then either your BIOS is hosed (in which case you'll need a new motherboard), or another motherboard component is hosed (in which case you'll need a new motherboard).

You may want to transplant the HDD into a working PCMCIA-bus system (any laptop) to recover/backup your important data.
If someone recently attempted and failed to update the motherboard's ROM BIOS, then you know why the system is failing to boot and also failing to light the display.
Here's a link to a site with disassembly instructions for Toshiba laptops:
http://www.irisvista.com/

Most dead laptops (even those whose power supplies have been burned out by a nearby lightning strike with the system on 120 VAC power) will still have perfectly usable HDD module(s), and RAM memory cards, so that at the very least, these removable components may be recycled into memory reserves for your next laptop or sold (Ebay.com) to help defray the cost of a new system.

Disk won't come out of disk drive. What can I do?


on your laptop turn the system off first then as soon as you turn it on kee on tapping f2 to get to your system BIOS "Note: getting into the BIOS depends on the system Some require to press Delete Botton to enter the BIOS setup" once in the BIOS you can eject you DVD rom from there by pressing one of the function keys on your system this depends on what brand of laptop you have some have F10 to be the eject Botton in BIOS for all DVD/CD-roms to make it eject, also if the Functions botton dont work try Holding down the FN key as well + the function Keys try this one at a time till your cd/dvdrom is ejected, am sorry I cant give you the exact info this query is based on machine type and brand. but this should do it for you if it doesn't this means that your dvd/cdrom's mechanism insdie is damaged or malfunctioning. i do not suggest prying it out, ths may damage the system as well.

Cannot boot from hard disk CD. An error occured that your BIOs would be updated and it is not fully ACPI compliant


Windows normally does not update system Bios. If your having trouble booting from CD, start the computer and enter the Bios setup. Change the boot sequence to CD then Hard Driveand save the change. Restart the computer with the CD in the drive and it should work fine.

CD tray keeps opening on my 1525 Inspiron, everytime I close it, 2 secs later it opens again.


More than likely a defective drive,

Remove the LCD hinge cover and disconnect the cable, see if the issue stops. If it does, then the eject button on the hinge cover is at fault. If the issue continues, boot to the BIOS F2 at boot, see if hte issue occurs there. If it doesn't, there may be a software issue sending an eject signal. If it does, then replace the drive.

Hardware malfunction - The system has halted


to get into the bios, you either need to press F1, delete or F2 as the computer boots. Look very carefully at the screen when it boots because it will only tell you briefly what key you need to press on your keyboard. Once you have got into bios use your cursor keys to get to the correct page where it will tell you the boot options. Then change the boot options to your preference and save the changes and exit.

You are right about the monitor though, it will not come on if your computer doesn't boot correctly.
