Computer will not power up. we got a digital camera card stuck in the computer. we loosened the screws on the bottom of the computer and lifted up the key board part to see if we could get to the card but this was not possible, we then put the screw back in the bottom and tried to power the computer back up but it doesnt work.
Um I had this problem with one of my SD cards as well. I found that the prongs in the slot were actually touching and one was overlaping another and my computer would not boot up correctly. It took some time and finesse but i finally got them fixed and it solved the problem.

#1 Turn off the laptop and remove the AC adapter. Remove the battery from its compartment on the bottom of the computer. Turn the laptop over and remove the screws holding the DVD drive in place and pull out the DVD drive. #2 Remove the remaining screws on the bottom of the computer. These screws secure the wireless card cover, the memory card cover and the modem card cover. Then remove all of the plastic covers. Remove the wireless card by sliding it gently out. #3 Remove the corner screws on the bottom of the laptop securing the bottom housing. Remove the housing by pulling it away from the laptop. Remove any remaining, exposed screws on the bottom of the computer. #4 Turn the laptop over and remove the thin plastic strip that runs along the border of the keyboard with your fingernails. If your fingernails aren't long enough, a plastic card will work as well. #5 Remove the two screws on either side of the keyboard securing it to the computer. Remove the keyboard. #6 Remove all of the exposed screws where the keyboard used to sit. These screws secure the top housing to the computer. Remove the housing, exposing the motherboard. #7 Locate the CMOS battery. It is a small battery about the size and shape of a coin and should be easily visible on the board. Depending on the model of Toshiba you are working on, the CMOS battery will either be secured with a clip or connected to the board by two small cables. Either way, they are easily removable. #8 Disconnect the battery by pulling gently away from the cables or by popping the clip out. Your CMOS battery can now be removed

Hi. I suggest you try pressing the power button to wake it up or you could also try power draining it and turting it on. To powerdrain your computer you must remove first the battery and unplug the ac adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, after that you must place back the battery and plugin the ac adapter then turn on your computer. Hope This Helps
The bottom and top are held not only with screws but with little plastic tabs along the edges. You will have to start in one corner and carefully separate the case. Once you get one tab released, you can see how the tabs are fastened. I would also check to see if there are several small screws under the battery. This is common.
Here is the link to the service and repair manual. You can print this out, make copies, it is free to use. This is your best reference for this type of work. There is no easy asnswer to your question. There are not enough details in what was done and if you used anti-static protocol in handling the components. Use the manual and backtrack your steps. The size of the screws in printed on the bottom of the case for easy replacement so you don't get the sizes mixed up. The most likely answer to your problem probably lies with the power bezel above the keybaord, if the cable or contact was pulled free of the motherboard then power connot go from button to the motherboard. Most of these non-start problems after a disassembly are cable related.
the best thing to do is to get the help of a qualified technician(better go to a toshiba service centre) they will help you with this. try removing the battery after turning off the computer and removing the power supply.reinsert the battery and turn on th notebook. it should work fine. else contact the technician.
1. use a (usualy supplied) data cable... normaly a USB cable... it connects to your computer/laptop , Use a Photo utility program to "find" the camera. You should be able to view the pics stored in the camera.
2. If the camera pics are stored on a sim card then simply put that card in a multi card reader... (very inexpensive to purchase and standard on some late model PC's) and in most cases you can pull the pics directly from the card.
3. Take the camera directly to walmart or walgreen's photo station and they usualy can pull the pics directly from it.
give me some more info and I maybe able to give detailed help...
mod# of camera and what model/make of your PC.
Screws, if overtightened or replaced with the incorrect size (i.e., too long a screw), can somtimes cause a board to short. Try taking the screws out completely and then see what happens. It's also possible your laptop may have a bad power supply as a result of the case having been taken apart or put together incompletely. If the first step doesn't work have it diagnosed by a competent repair person . Also, you may consider trying one of eBay's "laptop power" repair services postings. Some offer to replace your power supply fitting (rear plug) for about $50 plus shipping.
