Question about Toshiba Satellite (K000004080) Motherboard
Laptop will not power-up when on/off swith is depressed. Have tried removing battery with out success. Can the switch be repaired or is a new mother board required?
If you haven't given up on your computer the solution maybe not the switch, but something loading the internal supply. The most common piece to fail is the cpu. The failure is usually from excessive heat with the cooling path clogged or not letting the air to get the opening on the bottom for the fan. Also as laptops get older the cpu's heatsink grease needs to be cleaned off and new heatsink grease put on and at the same time a thorough cleaning of the heatsink fins. If the cpu fried you may see some brown hazing on it surface.

Some of the manufacturer used the same switches, so try to find another one which is actually the same but fit to that part, before buying of new board
