Re: computer won't reboot

I recently had my toshiba repaired at Computer Rennisance in nashville, I had the dc in jack replaced. They charged me 170.00 for the repair. about 45 days after their repair, the laptop did the same exact thing. I discovered that by applying downward pressure to the case right above the dc in jack would allow my to start the laptop, and get to windows. I also found that by applying upward pressure to the power cable when it was inserted would allow the laptop to start and run. as long as i keep pressure on the top or on the power cable everything works great. I brought it back to Computer Rennisance, and they said that it was some other problem. I still think it has something to do with the dc in jack, and i may try to fix it my self. there are some pretty good directions on how to do the repair on the net. I just wish Computer rennisance would have stood behind their work and resoldered it for me

Re: computer won't reboot

Hi, I have the same issue. Nothing shows on the LCD. I tried an external monitor and still nothing. I removed memory modules one a t a time. Nope. I removed hard drive. Nothing. When this happens pressing the eject button on the CD drive does nothing. All I get is power light stays illuminated, fan blows for 5 seconds then stillness.

Toshiba satellite m35x-s111 will not power up

there was a massive recall on these laptops years ago entailing that the mother board be replaced. unfortunately that is gone and passed. this is a problem with every m35x and most honest repair facilities shy away from those repairs due to the likelihood of the machine failing again.

Power on but no screen oor hard disk motion

Hello there:
i would suggest using a spare monitor and connect the cord that would normally go into a computer and connect it to the laptop and then plug in the power cord for the monitor and turn on the computer if this works and everything is ok then you know that the laptop screen may be faulty or there may be a loose connection somewhere ok?
best regards michael

More than likely it is overheating you can buy a can of compressed air and blow it out if you dont have a compressor that should be done at least every 6 months

Check to see if your Display is bad or Video is bad..
To Do This....
Plug an External Monitor into the laptop serial port..Boot the laptop and use the function key plus F5 to boot to external screen... If you see your PC running on the external screen it is a Video card/chip problem.....

Do your lights run ..the Power Light/Battery light/ hard drive light??? Do you hear the hard drive spinning??
