Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 Notebook

Open Question

M35X-S349 no video no post

Hi,
This laptop started freezing and we thought it may be hardware problem. Tested memory and hard drive and both passed. Tried to restore and gave blue screen error. Turned off and tried to turn on.

Now I do not get any video. No post. Turns on, all lights on, fan spins for few seconds but never any video. Seems like alot of people have same issue but no solution. It IS NOT a powerjack problem. Jack not loose and lights stay on when plugged in. Please help.

This is what done so far:
Tried to remove battery and reset power settings
Tried without battery, just ac, just battery.
Tried with single memory chip(has two) in each slot, changed them up.
Used compressed air to blow out fan.
Checked connection to board with LCD. Reseated and snug.
Pulled hard drive and formatted.

Strange. Was working fine(except for freezing) before tried to restore.
Please help.
Thanks!

Fig. 2 Toshiba M35X laptop shown with memory cover removed and HDD (Hard Disk Drive) removed, and with the HDD cover flipped up.
The RAM (SO-DIMM boards) are visible at center left.
The HDD cover is seen at the bottom of the photo.

(4) Using proper anti-static/static control techniques, clip alligator clip or your anti-static wrist strap to a frame ground of the laptop at an I/O connector or frame ground under the HDD cover.
(5) carefully remove (2) old 256 MB SO-DIMM DDR333 memory modules.
Store old memory boards in the anti-static plastic baggie in which the new memory boards were shipped.
(6) install (2) new 1GB SO-DIMM DDR333 boards, for total of 2GB of system RAM.
(7) reassemble system, and boot OS (operating system).
The laptop's ROM BIOS will auto-detect the new RAM and begin a standard POST (Power-On Self Test).
(8) If OS is MSWindows, it will also auto-detect the new memory, and allocate it to application software.

The technology of the Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 memory module is called
DDR333, meaning DDR (Double Data Rate) SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic RAM), at a memory bus speed of 333 MHz.
The Form Factor of the DDR memory card is SO-DIMM, which stands for Small Outline DIMM (Dual In-line Memory Module) (see photo).

Fig.3 Each 1GB SO-DIMM DDR333 memory module will look like this one.
The Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 supports a maximum of two SO-DIMM memory modules.

Each memory module can hold (a) 256MB, (b) 512MB, or (c) 1GB,
in the SO-DIMM Form Factor compatible with the Toshiba M35X-S349 Notebook PC.

If screen is totally off (black because of it's off) - screen is dead. If it's black, but you see it's working - could be hard drive or memory fail.

Toshiba m35x-s349 turns on but does not boot


check battery power. Lots of times laptops won't boot if the battery has gone down to low. Probably has just enough charge to turn the machine on but not enough charge to boot the machine.

Toshiba M35X-S349 (Freezes Periodically)


Update: I looked at the plug connecting the HD to the PC and pulled it about 1/2 way back off and reinserted into machine. I then pulled the HD back out and noticed that it was not all the way pushed back on and it wasnt parallel to the HD. Basically I am thinking that the HD is not sitting properly in the bay for some reason or another, but I have been running 10+ hours with no problems as of yet. I did reformat the HD so I am going down that road of reloading and letting run awhile, reboot, repeat. Not sure if solution, but looking real good at this point.
