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

Why My Inspiron mini will not start?


Hi,

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.
    Kiran Kumar.

Tablet turned off for several days, when turned off, the battery is almost dead?


Their is alot of resources that are not really dead when you switch android devices, so you need to plug battery out total in that case, or consider getting a resource repair kit to notify you of any resource sharings in the system.

Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

You are experiencing what referred to in the computer world as a dead computer system.

You either have a dead power supply or a dead computer mainboard or a dead Processor.
However it may also be a short circuit some where in your computer system.

However see my published guide entitled,

My Hp Pavilion Elite M9580a wont turn on. power light is on at the back but the light wont turn on


I recommend going through my guide it is entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

To me, off the bat, it sounds like a dead computer mainboard. However only purchase a replacement component when you know for sure which component it is.

After press push buttom , power not on , fan not on ... as dead


It might be the power supply that is dead or motherboard or together.

1. Try to disconnect all the connection at the back of your computer tower then press the power button of your computer for 15 seconds to drain the remaining power.

2. Reconnect only the power button and the monitor cable then turn it back on. (If the same thing happened go to step 4 if not go to step 3)

3. ( From step 2 ) If it turned back on, most probably the problem is one of the devices that you just disconnected is causing the problem. Try to reconnect then one-by-one and each time you connect them turn on your computer, let's check if it's gonna turn on or not, just proceed until you finish connecting all of the device or until you pin point the root cause of the issue.

4. (From step 2 ) If it didn't turn on, Open up your computer tower and reseat the video card, then turn on the computer

5. If still the same problem, remove your hard drive and turn on your computer, if it turned on, meaning that the hard drive might be the problem, if not, just put it back in

6. If still the same problem, remove the memories from your computer, if you have more than one memory installed remove them all, test the first memory to the 1st slot and to other slots one-by-one, see if it turned on. Test the second memory and so on, to the 1st slot and so on. Do it only with one memory testing each memory.

7. Reseat the power cord coming from the power supply, the 21 pin and also the small one that is plugged into your motherboard,

8. Reseat the CPU

9. If all of those things failed, most probably that the power supply is causing the problem. it's also possible that the motherboard is affected, I hope not.
