Question about Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook
A more than a tad frustrating problem with my now four-year old Toshiba A60 Satellite laptop.
After a couple of years service, one year ago without warning the laptop simply failed to boot up. The lights were all operational, you could hear both the fan and hard disk kicking in, but nothing, absolutely nothing on the display.
So I took it to be repaired and was told that it was a CPU issue - the repair company tried a different CPU and lo and behold it worked fine.
So.. I left things there for a year and bought a new laptop.
One year later, I managed to get hold of a reasonably priced CPU and decided to get the laptop repaired to sell. I thought "what the heck" and gave it one last try to see what happened, and miracle of miracles, it booted up and worked fine.... for one evening.
Tried it again today (two days later) and back to the old problem.
Very frustrated as I don't know how this can be a CPU/screen/motherboard issue if it is capable of working okay albeit intermittently.
Really grateful for any advice anyone can offer
Hi sometime this problem can be solved by quite simply removing the battery and waiting 10 or 20 seconds and then put it back in and it should boot?? let me know
