Have you checked the DC jack where the power adapter plugs in. With the adapter plugged in, wiggle it and see if you get movement. Hold it upward and turn your unit on, if the power stays on, then it is the DC connector on the motherboard that is loose.

If your fan is working correctly, then check your ram. But experience has shown me that an issue like this is usually motherboard related.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I have a Toshiba M35X-S109 and it won't boot. The power light will come one, I can hear something (like a fan) for 1-2 sec and then nothing. Any ideas?


do a hard reset, it might work.
take out the charger and the battery, press and hold the power button for about 20-30 secs. put back everything inside. and now see if it works.

After fixing power jack problem secreen will not lit


toshiba satellite M35X-S111
After solving the jack problem.
when I click on the start button I hear the fan voise but there is nothing on the moniter and no sound.
When I remove the connection between the start button and the mother board and put it again it works two times and then the problem started again.
The computer may work random at sometimes.
Is the problem in the small board and the cable which between the start button and the mother board ?
If yes how to purchase it

I had the same problem and found that disconnecting the power lead and repositioning the ribbon cable from the on switch did the job after about 5 attempts

My M35X-S111 keeps shutting down


More than likely it is overheating you can buy a can of compressed air and blow it out if you dont have a compressor that should be done at least every 6 months

PROBLEM WITH MY SATELLITE M35X-S111


Check to see if your Display is bad or Video is bad..
To Do This....
Plug an External Monitor into the laptop serial port..Boot the laptop and use the function key plus F5 to boot to external screen... If you see your PC running on the external screen it is a Video card/chip problem.....

Do your lights run ..the Power Light/Battery light/ hard drive light??? Do you hear the hard drive spinning??

Toshiba M35X-S109 Doesnt Start


you may have a faulty motherboard connection, but try connecting the power adapter in without the battery and see if it runs, then replace the battery back in the compartment.
