As a start, I would suggest reseating the Hard Drive, Memory modules, DVD reader, and anything else that you feel comfortable in accessing. I would suspect that a component or cable was knocked loose by the fall. The problem may be more serious than this, but it could be as simple as making sure that everything that you can get to is plugged in solidly.
Best of luck and have a good day!

This is a nice simple solution to a problem commonly experienced with Toshiba...

This is a nice simple solution to a problem commonly experienced with Toshiba laptops or notebooks. Please remember this is not a guaranteed solution as there may be other factors involved as to why your laptop is failing to start e.g faulty RAM.

However, this is a very common issue that appears with these laptops and hence the reason for the Tip. It is very simple to do, involves no cost and often resolves the problem without any further intervention.

If your Toshiba laptop has mysteriously turned itself off and is now totally unresponsive or appears completely dead and won't turn back on - then read on.

  • Laptop mysteriously turns itself off and will not turn back on
  • Laptop appears completely dead/black screen/unresponsive
  • Laptop refuses to charge the battery when connected to the mains supply i.e. No charge light showing.
  • There may be a brief flash of the screen or power button when you try to turn it on but then it immediately shuts off again.
  • If the laptop is still connected to the mains unplug it completely
  • Remove the battery from underneath the machine by releasing the locking tabs (or screws dependant on your version).
  • *Important*: With the battery removed - press and hold down the power button for at least 20 seconds. This is to remove any residual power from the laptop.
  • Reinstall the battery and plug the laptop back in to the mains.
  • Turn laptop on as normal and hopefully it should power up.

As stated at the outset, in some instances there will be other reasons as to why your laptop is not turning on. However, because these symptoms are a common yet often overlooked problem with this laptop, it is highly recommended to troubleshoot this procedure first before resorting to testing or replacing any hardware.

I spilled coffee on my lenovo laptop and was able to clean the keys and they all work except the

cleaning if one thing take a hair dryer on low heat and fan and blow it along the keypad for about 3 min then tip the keyboard so it's facing down on table, and let it 'drip dry' for a day or so

that might help

if not, then the keyboard OR motherboard(bigger issue) is kaput

let me know how this works for you

My laptop accidently fell off my coffee table on unto the carpet. I noticed some of the keys popped out. Can this be fixed???

Yes, this can be fixed as long as the key latches are not broken. If the keys just came out then they can be put back but it is a very time consuming and frustrating job if you do not have a lot of practice doing this. Your two options are you can try to follow this video and do it yourself or you could take it to a repair shop and they can replace these keys for minimal cost and time on your part.
Good Luck.

My computer fell off a table

Since your computer fell off a table this is definately a hardware problem, something might have shifted inside and in this case I would not recommend that you open it to see what shifted.
I would recommend that you take it to a repair store for them to pull it and fix it for you. Sorry to hear.

Hello My Toshiba Satellite a75 s229 Notebook Screen is Black and Glass inside screen looks cracked. Laptop fell 3'' ft. off table onto carpeted floor. Laptop powers up fine and I can hear windows start up...

Hi there,

The way to find out if it's just the screen is to connect the laptop to an external monitor. Pay attention to the F keys when you connect the laptop. On most Toshibas, you'll see a small depiction on the F5 key of a laptop next to a monitor. You either have to press that key alone, or hold down the fn key and then press the F5 key and let go to transfer the signal to the external monitor.

If the external monitor shows up good and you can perform all other functions on your laptop while viewing the monitor, you need only replace the laptop LCD. If it does not display correctly, then you're into the next round of troubleshooting.

Hope it works as above.

Good Luck
