    Take out the system memory and clean the contacts and slots with a soft, clean, dry paintbrush and re-seat it.

sounds like hard drive
  1. determine what brand of hard drive you have.
  2. Go to that manufacturers support site.
  3. Download their self booting diagnostic CD iso image.
  4. Create the disk according to the instructions.
  5. Boot to the disk and run the most exhaustive tests available to determine if the drive is bad or not.

I have a satellite A215 - s5818 It started with it just shutting down all of a sudden . reboot and it may work for a while and it would shut down again . Now I can hear it power up but no display on...


his is sound as though your power adapter is not charging your laptop battery and the battery is trying to preserve what power it has left to power up the screen as you demand but there is no voltage to do so.
1. you will need another power supply adapter from what you have describe here and or a battery replacement.
if you can possibly get an equivalent power adapter for your unit and connect it to see if you get power up then you need to replace the power adapter.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

My Toshiba A215-S5818 Shows up enter password


Hello,

The problem can be due to incorrect power on password prompt. This problem is noticed with some older BIOS versions. The system is looking for a non-existing power-on password.

The only solution for this is to send the system back to Toshiba. They will repair this problem free of cost.
