Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite M45 Power Problem


Your concern (auto shutting down) with Toshiba could be caused by excessive power drain by some of the attached devices such as the WiFi, LAN among others. On the other hand, it could also indicate that the battery is already weak and constantly requires charging and at times eats up most of the power from the adapter leaving nothing for the motherboard to use. In some repairs I have done, switching off / or removing entirely unneeded devices correct the problem. In some instances, auto shut down is caused by dirty/clogged airducts/heatsink of the processor, failing blower/fan and/or poor ventilation.

Of course, it could not be ruled out that internal problem with the power supply/regulator to have caused the shut down. Alternately, there are some viruses and malwares that could trigger shutdowns.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: gateway lap top is not getting any power, the

Suggest you take out the AC adapter (Charger), and remove the battery. Wait one minute, Replace the battery, plug the AC adapter back in. (AC adapter to surge protector, 'Natch)

See if it will turn on. Hold the Power On button down, until it does.

Should it not turn on, I suggest you have a problem with the DC Power Jack. This is the round opening in the laptop, where the AC adapter goes.

These little jack's undergo a lot of stress. The body of the jack, is just a tiny bit larger than the hole itself. The body is made of plastic. Let me show you an average example of a DC Power Jack,
That jack is about a fingernail width in length, 3/4th's of a fingernail in height, and half a fingernail wide. (I'm holding one in my hand now. I repair laptops)

The round hole has a metal sleeve, (Or a piece of flat metal at the end of the hole) The metal sleeve is the Negative connection.
There is a thick metal pin in the center. This pin is the Positive connection. Your laptop uses DC electricity.
(Your AC adapter converts AC electricity into DC electricity. A flashlight battery is an example of stored DC electricity. Laptop batteries are stored DC electricity)

Sometimes when an AC adapter is plugged in, the plug is bumped.
Sometimes this 'bump' can break the DC Power Jack. Break the middle pin loose, or the outer metal shell.

Also, if you look at the photo, you will see flat metal 'pins' sticking up. In relation to how this jack sits on the motherboard, it is upside down in the photo.
The 'pins' go down through the motherboard, and are soldered on the backside.
Sometimes the solder joints for these 'pins' can be broken. You either get an intermittent contact, or no contact at all.

Sometimes this isn't the case. Just due to normal plugging and unplugging of the AC adapter, can cause an issue.
This due to a bad design of the laptop motherboard.

The following is a crude illustration of that bad design.
Think of the laptop motherboard as being a 1 foot square. (It isn't)
Now along one edge, attach a 2 inch square. (It's actually all one piece though)
Now place the DC Power Jack on this 'Peninsula'.
The 'Peninsula' becomes cracked, right where it meets the main body of the motherboard. There are traces, (Think very flat thin copper wires), that become stretched and break.

This laptop motherboard design flaw is kept quiet. Laptop manufacturers have to replace the entire motherboard, when the laptop is under warranty, and has this issue. Also, replacing the motherboard just buys the laptop owner some time. The motherboard will break in this area again.

Could be all wrong about this. 'Google' your laptop name and model number and add -> Motherboard Issues <-, or add ->
DC Power Jack problems.

My lap lap top was placed on wet area, now the screen is black although the computer power light is on, what shall I do

It sounds like some of the moisture has entered the laptop and caused problems. First of all take the battery out of the laptop immediately and power it down, make sure you do not try to power it up until you have attempted to dry the unit. I would recommend covering any holes/vents in the chassis of the laptop with masking tape and placing it in some kind of storage container buried in dry uncooked rice for at least 24 hours. Hopefully this will draw any moisture from the laptop and prevent further problems. In the meantime, if you are desperate to access the files you might want to extract your hard disk and connect it to another computer. I wouldn't recommend this if it can be avoided, as it will require moving the laptop around which may help work moisture further into the system, the moisture could also be affecting the hard disk, if it is and you attempt to power it you risk losing your data forever.

When I push the power button to power the lap top up the light display that says outlet power changes from green to amber and the laptop will not power up.

try removing the battery and just use plug power only if it boots normally then change the battery and the change the power supply unit as well I would just start with the power supply unit first then see if the battery charges up if not the battery is bad replace it. Now if the computer will not start with the battery removed then you have a power supply issue.
Change and replace it. Hope this helps. Also when computer lap top get hot they will shut down to protect the computer wait and let it cool down then try to restart your computer. If this does work and the lap top restarts normally get a fan cooler that is USB powered and the lap top sits on top of it. Also make sure the fan is running and is not stopped. Clean and dust it out once in awhile. I hope this assists you with your problem. John

Flat screen is going out

Replace the VGA or HDMI (whichever you're using) Cable, and the Power Cable (one of the two can cause this problem, or even worse, fry it!)

Then,...... try connecting the monitor (with new video and power cables to another pc that you know for a fact is working correctly... the problem could be your power supply, motherboard, etc..

If that doesn't work.....Return The Monitor if you can..........cuz if the above doesnt fix your problem, ........then you'll know the monitor is bad......but don't assume that til you try my solution k!
