Consider a new battery. How old is it? A battery has a Cycle Life, when it's reached it's time to replace it. If so, always replace with a genuine replacement, some aftermarket batteries don't work well at best, and COULD be a Fire hazard at worst. You could try a different Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs as the original.

    I have tried draining the laptop and trying different chargers and batteries but that has not helped but my sister has dropped it from about a 1 1/2 feet from a chair.

    Rarely does anything good come from dropping a laptop from ANY distance. It may require a ride to the Computer Shop to visit a Qualified Computer Tech. Was it plugged in when it was dropped? Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? The shock of the drop may have damaged components.Even the HDD may be damaged, remove and test.

    If you have ever opened a laptop you will see how many tiny connections their are, it only takes one to come loose and you have a paperweight instead of a laptop. If you are proficient with electronics and technically inclined you can, most likely, find the issue, if it's a loose connection.I had a Laptop that war sitting on the carpeted floor, on the edge, it fell over on the cord "brick". When I booted it it had a Black Screen, it would boot, but nothing on the screen. My point is, any drop, bump, jar, rough handling will put a Laptop out of action, they can be quite delicate.

Either the power supply is not working or the battery has failed and will not hold a charge. If the laptop is 3 or more years old, the battery is the likely suspect.

Remove the Battery and connect the Computer to direct Power outlet and also remove the RAM modules once. If the same issue persists, the service will be final option.

It is not a driver or video card problem. It is the monitor.

To be sure plug a full size desktop monitor into your laptops monitor jack. Every laptop has one. If the picture doesn't turn yellow that will confirm that your LCD is bad.

The chair will not move if the charger is plugged in. The flashes are normal with the charger plugged into the chair. The lights on the charger mean that the batteries have been fully charged. Red and yellow lights mean charging. After you unplug the charger from the chair (if off-baord charger, turn charger off or unplug from the wall) then unplug from joystick. after plug is removed from joystick press the on button and all the battery lights should be lit and when you move the joystick forward you will hear the electric bake release and the chair should move forward etc Hope this helps

Toshiba Qosmio F15-AV201 will not turn on

Remove the battery. Plug in the power adapter. If you do not see a light turn on the front of the machine, you have one of two problems. A bad AC adapter, or the pin inside the computer has come loose. Both of the issues are very common. If you go to a local computer shop, im sure they would test that for free. Pin replacement usually runs around $100 in my neck of the woods. A "GOOD" AC adapter can cost as little as 25 bucks on ebay to 150 from Toshiba. Please contact me and let me know what you decided to do. Email
