I have a P4, 1.8Ghz Centrino generic laptop computer having a D23-T model label and it uses a Toshiba battery charger. Its problem is that upon pressing the power button it won't boot up anymore. The power and battery LED indicator would alternately flash. I have already replaced the memory module with a known good one, removed the hard disk and DVD ROM drive but yielded the same result. Has anybody encountered this type of symptoms on their laptops?
Any help and comments will be greatly appreciated.

If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the battery is not charging, then the battery is dead.
To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let the latop run for 10 minutes or so.
To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in and remove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is dead and needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.
Hi There are a lot of reasons, First of all, try to unplug the battery, hold the power button for 30 seconds, then plug in the charger. If the notebook boot, then plugin the battery and try to boot it. If booted , then N!ce, you've done it.
Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.
If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.
If this error message comes up when you boot up the computer, it means the BIOS requires configuration, usually the Time and Date is wrong. If this occurs every time you boot up your computer and have changed the Date and Time then this could be caused by a flat BIOS battery. If so, replace the BIOS battery and then configure the Date and Time and you won't get this error again.
It depends whether your laptop has a removable processor or not. I f you have a removable one then you can replace it with a better one. Also if you have a centrino processor than you can only change it with a centrino one, a higher end procesor will not work. according to my knowledge most newer laptops dont come with removable processors these days.
are you using a pentium m or centrino cpu in your notebook? if you cant find the drivers for yours, just use the ones for a model with the same components. the m10 was released with pentium m or centrino processor, 4 models with each cpu.
you have to use a standard windows start up disk with cd rom support like win 98 works well so the computer will recognize a older version then insert it and boot the computer with the operating system that u want to install but be advised if you have a warranty on the machine you will void the waranty i found out the hard way i had xp on my toshiba laptop and i put windows me on it couple of months later i had a cd rom issue and sent it to the manufacture and found out that the waranty was voided because i put a different operating system on the machine
