Sounds to me like a fault on the Primary Circuit Board. to test if it's the motherboard, try unplugging the laptop, turning it upside down, removing the battery, taking the RAM out of the pc and starting the laptop without and RAM inside it. if you dont hear the motherboard beeping it's not a good sign :(

SOURCE: Toshiba laptop does not run, just amber light blinking

Did the computer ever work? Have you checked that your memory is properly seated? Remove the bottom plate that reveals the memory modules, pop both loose then back in. Try to restart. Is the battery fully seated?

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power

Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

might be getting hot

check the CPU make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating


also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope this helps you

My toshiba 2455-s305 wont boot up


If you are familiar with your laptop, i.e. the locations of hard drive, try to take it out of the its bay and put it back again. Also, if you can have someone check your battery packs, because from my experience with this laptop, when the battery packs is not charging well, i got some booting up problems.

Power on problem


First that u need to do is to remove the battery from your toshiba laptop. Plug in the AC adapter alone and power it on. If it works, then u need to check your battery. If the notebook wont power on with the AC adapter alone, then i think its a NO POST issue. The motherboard needs to be checked.
