When I turn on the power to my laptop, tries to turn on but dies
My Toshiba Satellite was working just fine then all of the sudden whenever I press the power button the power light lights up for about 2 seconds, the laptop sounds like its starting up but it just dies immediately. After about 1 or 2 seconds. I was thinking it could be my battery but even when its plugged in it happens. Its only a year old laptop. I thought it could be the power cord but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with it physically.
Anyone have any idea what this could be? Could the motherboard be dead?

Try removing the battery and using just the power supply first, if this works then it is a battery fault, is that doesnt work then try another power suppy or get your power supply tested, if not either of these, then it may be the PSU connector inside the laptop
Computer sounds fine, CD sounds dead! Try copying the drivers onto a new CD using another computer & try them in the laptop again. The drivers may be Vista-specific anyway, so try downloading XP drivers from Toshiba website.
If it is brand new is should really go back to the supplier. But out on the Net it seems you are not alone. one chap suggested getting the driver frm the maker. Create a system restore point before installing and if it works fine create another.
