It sounds like video card problem. Bring it to a repair shop.

Toshiba satellite m35x-s114 boots to the toshiba screen then doesn't do anything else. Even with the f2 or f12 option nothing happens. I hear the fan (I think it is the fan) then no sound at all. I have to...


Try getting to the bios screen, if you can get to the bios screen then I would imagine the hard drive has failed. If it is hanging up at the toshiba splash screen and not allowing BIOS access, then I would lean toward a motherboard failure. Are you attempting a boot from the windows disc?, is that why you are trying F12? I have seen my share of these Toshiba M35's just give the Toshiba splash screen when there has been a motherboard issue. Changing out the main board will fix this particular problem. I had not found another solution for it.

Dell D500 Laptop will not boot up. Lights light up on power board, power light comes on, then all off after a couple of seconds. Fan does not spin. Battery is very nearly fully charged, and charges...


it seems like that there is a power issue with your laptop. It is more than likely that your laptop is fully charged, but the charge is not enough for the laptop to operate. You can always try a different battery if you have (which is, let's face it, usually rare).
If this happens only when your laptop is not connected to the plug, than you will have to replace the battery.
check also if the laptop gets too hot. if it does. it will shut down automatically, just like a car.

Black screen, won't boot up, fan kicks on for a few seconds only, then powers down


check the display on the external monitor through the vga port, if the display is fine , then its the problem of your laptop screen, some time this is due to the cable that gives display to the screen, take it to the technician and checks there
how do you like the solution rate it please

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

M35X Screen went black and will not come back on after shut down, reset and power up


Try to connect to external monitor and see if you see anything. Of course when you do that you have to hold at the same time fn key and the key that has a blue picture of computer screen.

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,
