Laptop wont turn on, got green pwr and amb bat but will not fire up


Systems covered: All failing to boot without lighting up display.

Goal of this Solution: Try to determine whether system is (a) booting successfully while failing to light its display (indicating hardware failure in the display), or (b) failing to light the display due to failure to successfully transfer control to ROM BIOS (indicating a motherboard failure).

The fact that the Green power LED, and Amber Battery LED are lit seems to exonerate the laptop power supply (brick) circuitry. Even with a nearly dead battery, a Toshiba Satellite 1135-s1552 should work while plugged into a properly functioning brick.

Here's Toshiba support's (244 page) online PDF version of your laptop manual:
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=434997&rpn=PS113U&modelFilter=1135-S1552&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663

If the HDD (hard disk) activity indicator LED is active after power-on, then your system has actually got past BIOS and is booting - your LCD monitor inverter circuit or Backlight may have burned out - and to use the system, you'll need to connect an external monitor to the RGB monitor port on the back of the system (see illustration on page 32 of User's Guide) to view system activity.
Alternatively, one may attach an analog TV, using the S-Video port on the back of the laptop (see illustration on page 32 of User's Guide).

Once an external monitor is working to display the ROM BIOS part of the boot sequence, you may find that the ROM BIOS is good enough to run a few BIOS-based diagnostics. Run them all - something may indicate the source of the boot failure. Ofttimes, enough of the motherboard remains good to provide interaction with the ROM BIOS, but some motherboard failure will subvert a full boot to Windows/Linux. An example of this type of failure would be a failure of the PCMCIA bus controller, which is vital for booting a disk-resident OS, but unaccessed (except by BIOS diags) when the user interacts with BIOS. Another common failure of this type is main memory (RAM) failure.
A working external monitor/TV also provides a chance to backup important laptop data to a flash drive, sky drive, or CD-RW discs.

If no HDD activity is seen after power-up, then either your BIOS is hosed (in which case you'll need a new motherboard), or another motherboard component is hosed (in which case you'll need a new motherboard).

You may want to transplant the HDD into a working PCMCIA-bus system (any laptop) to recover/backup your important data.
If someone recently attempted and failed to update the motherboard's ROM BIOS, then you know why the system is failing to boot and also failing to light the display.
Here's a link to a site with disassembly instructions for Toshiba laptops:
http://www.irisvista.com/

Most dead laptops (even those whose power supplies have been burned out by a nearby lightning strike with the system on 120 VAC power) will still have perfectly usable HDD module(s), and RAM memory cards, so that at the very least, these removable components may be recycled into memory reserves for your next laptop or sold (Ebay.com) to help defray the cost of a new system.

If computer does not start normally, use this checklist to identify specific symptoms and take the recommended corrective actions to resolve the problems.Perform a Hard Reset Do these actions first to clear all temporary setting before troubleshooting the problem.Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and media cards Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to drain residual charge
  1. Reconnect the AC power adapter (do not connect the battery), press the Power button and look for the LEDs to blink or glow, and listen for the sound of a disk drive and fan turning.
Perform each recommended corrective action and then attempt to restart the computer.Symptom 1: LED lights do not glow, display is black, no fan or drive sounds are heard, and computer does not startIf LEDs do not glow or blink when AC power adapter is attached and power button is pressed, there is no power available to the notebook.
  • Check AC adapter wiring and power connection to the notebook.
  • Connect a different AC power adapter and remove battery, then restart notebook.
  • Connect a different battery and disconnect AC power adapter, then restart notebook.
  • If there is no power available at the notebook, contact HP to purchase a replacement battery or AC adapter.
Symptom 2: LEDs blink or computer beeps but does not start Blinking LEDs or beep tones indicate a hardware failure during the pre-start up testing.
  • Count number of blinking LEDs or beeping tones to help with diagnostics testing.
  • Contact HP for technical assistance. There are no other user-initiated troubleshooting actions until error codes are resolved.
Symptom 3: LEDs glow, fan noise may be heard briefly, display remains black, and computer fails to startup or boot Usually occurs if a component is installed incorrectly, or there is a device conflict or failure.
  • Connect an external monitor to check if the problem is the built-in LCD display or graphics card.
  • Remove all CD/DVDs, SD cards, USB devices, peripherals and do a Hard Reset .
  • If memory or hard drive components were replaced, reinstall original components.
  • Remove memory modules and replace one-at-a-time.
  • Remove and reseat hard drive.
  • If possible, turn on power, press F10 to enter BIOS mode, and run Memory Test and Hard Drive Test .
  • On newer notebooks, turn on power, press Esc to enter UEFI mode, and run Memory Test and Hard Drive Test .
  • If possible, turn on power, press F8 to enter Windows Advanced Boot Options , and select Repair Computer option, or enter Safe Mode and run Memory Diagnostics .
  • If all other methods fail , but computer can boot to BIOS, use recovery disk to recover the computer to original condition.
    Note: All programs and data are destroyed during recovery.
Symptom 4: Computer may display an error message on a black screen during startup or boot

    Toshiba a210: Powers up on both battery and power source. When powered on the caps lock blinks green most of the time but not always. Display does not come on at all, no blinking, flickering, or...


    Just out of curiosity, you haven't got a usb device plugged in as you are booting the laptop have you?
    If not, try this:

    Remove battery, unplug power, hold power button for 60 seconds, turn on computer with power plug only, then shutdown, add battery and restart

    If that fails to work, check that the charger indicator light is not flickering, this indicates that the power is not completing the circuit (damaged power capacitors/ fault on motherboard.

    Are you using a genuine Toshiba charger, these laptops are prone to breaking down if an aftermarket one is used, a non-genuine one can damage the motherboard as well.

    How many blinks does the caps lock make? Flashing caps lock is usually a sign that the Ram may be failing. You can try replacing the Ram modules to see if it boots, also, a dying hard drive will prevent booting, remove and see if that allows the laptop to power up

    After that, I'd suspect the motherboard is damaged and will need replacing

    Did update bios..then computer died.no display no boot up.led for power on led for wifi on . asus eeepc 2g surf


    This one could be a number of issues. when it comes to updating bios. If the incorrect file was used, it may have reprogrammed and errored out internally. if you have or want to try, one may suggest taking the battery out AND disconnecting the BIOS battery. while i dont know the exact specs on this model you may or may not have to open it up. I dont know the status of your warranty, if your OUT OF WARRANTY then try removing main battery and CMOS battery let laptop sit for about 24 hours for the capacitors to loose charge and then try putting both batteries back in place. and try it, If still nothing you may want to contact asus, about one if you feel comfortable and if its a removeable bios chip then you could order a new chip from ASUS, now if its not removable but board mounted then you may have to send it in for service at cost.
