LAPTOP WILL NOT POWER ON...IS IT DEAD?

I have a toshiba laptop. still new. got it this august. one day i shut it down. I woke up and went to take my finals. when i came back to get on my laptop it would not cut on. I havent spilled anything. When i let my roomate use it I dont think she spilled anything and the last time she used it was three months ago. however i unscrewed one part and it had something sticky in it but it wasnt alot. Im scared it could be some kind of water damage however i never spilled anything on it. what could it possibly be and how can i fix it. my warranty is still good

My Toshiba a laptop wont turn on


Remove the main battery power up, if no! have the power adapter checked for correct voltage, if okay! sub out the ram memory one at a time and test, still nothing! the DC jack in the laptop is a common source of problem, plug adapter into laptop and gently pull up at the same time hit the power a number times to see if it will come on, if yes! the laptop must be dismantled down to the motherboard level to address the repair.

Toshiba laptop power failure after yanking power cord


Hello.

Sounds like you already determined it, but if you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

Hope this helps.

Laptop shuts down when moved around. I have a Toshiba A135-S4467 and yesterday when I went to pick it up and set it on my lap it shut down leaving the power button flashing orange. when I pressed the...


Sounds like a Battery - AC Adapter problem. Do you have an Icon showing your battery level?

Do you have Windows XP? I'm guessing you do because of the memory upgrade.

If you have XP, go to Control Panel - Power Options and check you battery. Choose to show in task bar.

If you have a AC Adapter, the BIOS on your laptop will NOT charge the battery, but it will show that you are on AC (unless it's completely dead)

I'm guessing that if you only had 1g of memory, you have a pretty old laptop, and you probably should purchase a new AC Adapter, and a new Battery.

Toshiba laptop shuts off immediately after it is turned on


Sounds like a power issue, there are a few things that can cause this:
  1. If you are on battery power, your battery is dead, either it's out of juice or the batter can no longer hold a charge. Solution here is to get a new battery
  2. The power adapter is not connecting to the laptop properly and the battery is dead. Solution here would either by a new charger, or if the connector on the laptop is bad, new motherboard.
  3. There is a problem with the motherboard. Solution here is a new motherboard.

It went into hibernation mode you most likely knew that. While it was on was there a power cut? its likely your power adapter. Please explain a bit more what it does when you turn it on does the lights lite up can you see the adapter lite on if there is one. You can leave a laptop on for days there may have been a power cut and stuffed your adapter up like a power serge unbenown to you?.
