Probably something got knocked loose during the fall. As a first step, remove and reinsert the hard drive and memory module(s). Those seem to be the most common things to come loose. If that doesn't work, you will need to get under the covers of the laptop and reseat all of the cards and connectors.

Here is a link that shows you disassemble the M45.

Hope this helps and gets you backup and running. Have a super day!

Any damage? Drop? You get Nothing? No fan spin? No LED's blink? Nothing? You didn't supply the Toshiba model or the OS? How old? Is it time to replace the CMOS battery?

Easynote tj74 wont turn on


Your not getting power? When you plug the laptop in does the Battery charge light come on? Are you getting power to the laptop? Do you have a multimeter to verify voltage from th AC outlet to the AC jack? Or ,the power gets to the laptop and push the on/off button you get no response? Or, you push the on/off button and the laptop starts then shut down? No lights, no leds blink. Remove battery, Try another cord/charger. Has it been dropped or damaged that would jar loose a connection, or pulled by the cord resulting in a damaged AC jack?

My samsung laptop will not turn on. How do I fix this?


Hi

Possible reasons why your laptop doesn't boot ( Power on with green light indicator lit)

-battery problem
-memory problem
-power failure
-etc ( maybe one of the hardware that is connected inside your laptop)

Troubleshooting steps:

1. First you need to try switching on your laptop without the battery
Basically you will remove the battery of your laptop and connect the ac power then switch it on.

a. If your laptop boot up ( with a green light indicator ) the problem will be the battery.
b. If the laptop does not boot up continue using step 2.

2. Unplug the power adapter , remove the battery and memory
Watch this video and it will help you to remove the memory

NOTE: Your not going to upgrade your memory!

After removing the memory put it back close the panel and put back the screw.

Now after putting the memory , Try to plug the ac adapter and press the power button and check if your laptop will boot ( No need to put back the battery because your laptop will power up with out the battery )

If your laptop will still have the same problem the best thing to do is to bring it on the nearest support center for Samsung laptop because there's a possibility the problem will be the hardware that is connected inside your laptop.

I want to provide you the complete information on how to open your laptop however since your just new with this and to avoid any damages the best thing that you can do is to bring it on laptop specialist if the troubleshooting steps that I provided will not work.

Be careful Alright! Good luck
Have a nice day
