Laptop won't start-up Toshiba Satellite A135-S2356

On start-up the green start button comes on, and hear the sound of the cooling fan and with-in a second or two a sound comes from the disk drive and then complete shut down.  This all takes place in 4 to 5 seconds.
This happens on battery and AC power.
Computer is about 18 months old.

I've removed the battery and re-inserted it...just the same
Tried to start on AC only with the battery removed and get no start-up at all.
Any and all help is appreciated.

    I have the Toshiba A135-S2356 and i'm experiencing the same problem. Mine started to do this after i was i had issues with only 2 of my usb ports working. I saw a topic on this and there was a link to update the bios system,, through that site. I clicked the link and downloaded the update. Once i clicked install the computer froze and i couldn't restart at all. The only way was for me to take out the battery. Once i put the battery back in i then tried to power it back on and thats when this current issue started to happen.

    Could it be that the bios update fried my hard drive?

Toshibba laptop a135-s2276 ,my mother bords smd chip does not work so display of screen does not appear

The problem is well known witht this model Toshiba - the problem is the fan stops working and then hence shuts down to prevent overheating - it does not take long once the laptop is hot. Without replacing the fan just reboot the laptop until you hear the fan start again on reboot.
