Question about Toshiba Turquoise 10.1" NB505-N508TQ Netbook PC with Intel Atom N455 Processor and Windows 7 Starter (883974682959)
When I turn on my laptop, the fan turns on for a few seconds and then stops. The hard drive does not sound like its on and the screen is black. No other light turns on except for the power light. I have been using my netbook in conditions that got it really hot (hot weather mostly). I tried my best to give my netbook adequate air ventilation, and I would shut it down when I felt it was too hot. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I installed linux mint on my comp and I think some proprietary drivers were not installed (because I didn't know how).

Mark F K, truong808, does the cooling fan(s) blow or come on? If not, the system will sense tha ti is overheating and will shut down to prevent further damage. Also, a thermal sensor may be failing on the Mobo and thus keep the fan from initiating. The cheapest fix is to replace the fan. Worst case scenario is another Mobo may be the fix.

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.
Tap the Pause Key.
Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.
If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

This problem is likely caused by overheating. The CPU reaches a temp to high and shuts the system down. When you try to turn it on the system is still to hot and it will not let the computer power on. You can try blowing out the fans and heat sink with an air compressor or can of compressed air. If this does not help the problem you may need to have thermal compound reapplied. If that does not fix it it will need a new heatsink/fan/
