If you power up the computer and get no video remove the memory and reinstall making sure you have it seated right. if still not working then you have a bad motherboard this is fairly common problem with toshiba laptops they have problems with the ram sockets going bad and it means replacing the motherboard.I hate to tell you this but the two brand of laptop i stay away from as much as possible is toshiba and sony.
sony being the worst of the dead motherboards and toshiba coming in pretty close behind.
wish i could tell you something better but i see alot of this.look on ebay you may be able to find a replacment board there cheaper then at toshiba.
I may have something around the shop to i have a couple of toshiba with busted screens,i check model number to see what they are tomorrow

My inspiron 11, went dead an turned off I plugged

How old is it? You could have either a dead battery and/or your power cable has gone bad. I've seen both once with a computer. Usually its just the battery.. they last about 3 years or so, especially if you keep the computer plugged in all the time.

Why My Inspiron mini will not start?


It is unfortunate that the computer is not turning on. Request you to try following the below steps which might help:

    (1)Turn off the computer.
    (2)Remove all the external peripherals like AC Adaptor, flash drives, battery, etc.
    (3)Press and hold the power button for 30sec which releases the static on the computer (if any)
    (4)Put back the battery and plug in the AC Adaptor.
    (5)Let the computer charge for some time.
    (6)Try turning on the computer.
    If the computer doesn't turn on then check hoe the Power LEDs on the system, battery and AC Adaptor react. Then I can check and help you further.

    Thanks and Regards.
