Problem w/ Toshiba Satellite M35X-S1142

On one day the laptop stopped working. When you would press the power button you could hear noise of fan for 3 sec no screen image at all and then silence but all of the led ligts would be on. After few months I just pressed the power button and it ran perfectly fine, but when i wanted to turn it again it behaved the same way as before. I tried replacing the memory, but it did not help.

More than likely it's the motherboard, especially since the fan only runs for 3 seconds. There's not much an average user can do except to have a local repair shop diagnose the problem and swap the motherboard. This is really common with the dv series.

Take a look at HP's warranty site, they just expanded the warranty on many of their systems with problems similar to yours.

It's HERE.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

My old laptop toshiba m35x-s161 won't turn on the light on the power botton turns on and it makes some noise but nothing more happens


Sounds like there is a faulty connection between the power switch and the computer. Probably why its making a little noise.
Take in for repair and replace power button.

I have a Toshiba M35X-S109 and it won't boot. The power light will come one, I can hear something (like a fan) for 1-2 sec and then nothing. Any ideas?


do a hard reset, it might work.
take out the charger and the battery, press and hold the power button for about 20-30 secs. put back everything inside. and now see if it works.
