Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet
My laptop turned off while in use and will not turn on again. There is a very faint clicking sound near the power supply. The hard drive still works, I tired a different power adapter and works fine, took it apart and blew out the dust in the fan. It still will not booth up, no lights or anything but this clicking sound. I took the whole thing apart and still can hear the clicking sound when its plugged in.

When you say that the hard drive works I have to ask how you know. There are not many parts in a laptop that would make a clicking noise. One of them is the hard drive. Is there any display activity at all? Lights on the unit that come on?

The most common problem on these units is the ac connector solder joints break away from the motherboard. If you're sure the ac adapter is working, and the correct one, and it's not charging the battery (assuming the battery is good), it's most likely the problem. They don't have to appear loose to be loose.
Otherwise, it's motherboard time, or a loose screw, etc has caused a dead short on the board.
Good luck, if you have additional info, let me know.

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.
Tap the Pause Key.
Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.
If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

hi, this is tricky, as the machine does seem to freeze even before booting. the fan may have become stuck, use some compressed air with the fan inlet (bicycle pump may do) to clean out some dust.
wait some time and switch on again.
observe if the green lamps for harddrive and cd-drive light up.
if no, the computer does not boot up, it may be then that :
the fan is broke and laptop prevents overheat damage by not booting up(buy a new fan and replace it)
or the machine itself is broke
in either way, if the solution i provided did not help, i would recommend to see a technician!
good luck then
