Question about Toshiba Satellite 2400-S251 Notebook

1 Answer

NOthing showing up on screen?????

I have had this computer for years and las year, the power kept going out on it, and I realized the end of the power cord that gets inserted into the back of the computer could be the problem, then i looked at the back of the computer (where the power cord goes) and thought maybe there was something wrong with that part instead and tried taking the computer apart. When it wouldnt come all the way apart and I ran out of time, I decided to just put it back together and when trying to use it again the power light came on but when I pushed the button to actually turn the computer on, nothing happened. I can't figure out what i could have done to cause this, or if it just a coincidence and how to fix it so i can get some files and other things out of there...

For the most part; the jack where you insert the power supply has a defect, or the power cord plug-end that sits in the port is going bad. Check the power supply and if you can get one like it to test it on your computer; do that and see if that helps.
My customers that come in with the same problem as you describe; tell me they tripped over the cord, someone pulled on it from an angle, or physically bent it. Hope its just a bad power supply as this is not expensive to replace; the jack attached to the mainboard is a real problem to fix.

Compaq Presario X1000 power issues

Unassemble the fan and see if there is a lot of dirt and dust in there. If the fan is NOT working you need to fix that issue before you do anything else. Does the computer randomly shut down ?

No Power

This is Kodaks suggestion:

Verify that the large end of the AC power cord is inserted fully into a power outlet.
Verify that the small end of the AC power cord is inserted fully into the DC-in port on the back of the printer.
Turn on any power strip or wall switch that is connected to the printer.

Here is a page that might be of some help to you:

Good luck and let us know how it goes.
