If the system appears to power on, but you do not see anything on the screen, there are several methods to determine the problem at hand.

Make sure the cooling system is fucntional.. a bad CPU fan has been known to make the computer power on, but halt and do nothing to protect the CPU. Some CPU fan's have speed sensors, and other do not, some motherboards require the speed sensor to be functional, or resistance in the line.

Some mainboards will function enough to power the system up, but go no further due to onboad componant failures such as bad / broken SMR, SMC, or capacitor. If you are sure the mainboard works, and the monitor is known to function, proceed with the following troubleshooting tips.

1) Remove everything but the memory, GPU, CPU, and HDD, see if boot is successful, if not Step 2)

2) Replace the Power supply, under powered PSU's can make a system unresponsive / fail to make it to POST, if fails step 3)

3) Replace Memory, if fails, 4)

4) Replace GPU.. if fails, 5)

5) Replace CPU, a non-funtional CPU will alow everything to power up, but will not allow POST in some machines.

6) Replace Motherboard, if fails, start at step 1)

Laptop wont turn on, got green pwr and amb bat but will not fire up


Systems covered: All failing to boot without lighting up display.

Goal of this Solution: Try to determine whether system is (a) booting successfully while failing to light its display (indicating hardware failure in the display), or (b) failing to light the display due to failure to successfully transfer control to ROM BIOS (indicating a motherboard failure).

The fact that the Green power LED, and Amber Battery LED are lit seems to exonerate the laptop power supply (brick) circuitry. Even with a nearly dead battery, a Toshiba Satellite 1135-s1552 should work while plugged into a properly functioning brick.

Here's Toshiba support's (244 page) online PDF version of your laptop manual:
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=434997&rpn=PS113U&modelFilter=1135-S1552&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663

If the HDD (hard disk) activity indicator LED is active after power-on, then your system has actually got past BIOS and is booting - your LCD monitor inverter circuit or Backlight may have burned out - and to use the system, you'll need to connect an external monitor to the RGB monitor port on the back of the system (see illustration on page 32 of User's Guide) to view system activity.
Alternatively, one may attach an analog TV, using the S-Video port on the back of the laptop (see illustration on page 32 of User's Guide).

Once an external monitor is working to display the ROM BIOS part of the boot sequence, you may find that the ROM BIOS is good enough to run a few BIOS-based diagnostics. Run them all - something may indicate the source of the boot failure. Ofttimes, enough of the motherboard remains good to provide interaction with the ROM BIOS, but some motherboard failure will subvert a full boot to Windows/Linux. An example of this type of failure would be a failure of the PCMCIA bus controller, which is vital for booting a disk-resident OS, but unaccessed (except by BIOS diags) when the user interacts with BIOS. Another common failure of this type is main memory (RAM) failure.
A working external monitor/TV also provides a chance to backup important laptop data to a flash drive, sky drive, or CD-RW discs.

If no HDD activity is seen after power-up, then either your BIOS is hosed (in which case you'll need a new motherboard), or another motherboard component is hosed (in which case you'll need a new motherboard).

You may want to transplant the HDD into a working PCMCIA-bus system (any laptop) to recover/backup your important data.
If someone recently attempted and failed to update the motherboard's ROM BIOS, then you know why the system is failing to boot and also failing to light the display.
Here's a link to a site with disassembly instructions for Toshiba laptops:
http://www.irisvista.com/

Most dead laptops (even those whose power supplies have been burned out by a nearby lightning strike with the system on 120 VAC power) will still have perfectly usable HDD module(s), and RAM memory cards, so that at the very least, these removable components may be recycled into memory reserves for your next laptop or sold (Ebay.com) to help defray the cost of a new system.

Asus p5s800-vm MB has complete power lets monitor know


Disconnect the hard drives, cd/dvd drives and any expansion boards you have plugged into the mainboard. We want to remove as much as possible to see if we can eliminate the problem.Using the onboard video, start it up again, and see if it comes up. If it does, then its one of the items you disconnected. Power down and reattach one of the disconnected items and power up again. Did it come up? Keep in mind that we want to see the bios start up screen. Once you have attached all the items you will have found the bad component. Replace it. But lets say you didn't get a good system when you disconnected everything. Well, that narrows down the suspected bad items to: the mainboard, the power supply, the memory, or the cpu. The power supply has many voltages coming out of it, keep in mind that the drives, cd/dvd rom drives and fans use 12 volts for spin up. There are 3 other voltages used by the mainboard. I would replace the power supply next with a known good one. Then it gets a little costlier, the memory, then the cpu and then the mainboard. Stick with it. You'll find out which it is. Good Luck.

Motherboard shuts down before booting !


You should clarify this a bit more, but please make sure all of your fans are plugged in and the no jumpers are set to over-clock the processor.Also, double check that everything is fundamentally compatible.

System Shutting down without any messages on ASUS P5-ND mainboard


Power Supply may be. Check how much power is needed by your motherboard & all peripherals. I think a 450-500W power supply should be ok.

I recommend that you formatt your HDD to a FAT32 system probably by using another pc then you should also ensure that your bios is setup for the appropriate operating system. maybe just download the appropriate bios files off the gigabyte web site.

Are you using a 24 pin or 20 pin power supply? Can you confirm the power supply you are using does indeed work?

Motherboard or Hard Drive problem


Testing mother board:
1. remove memory:
if the mainboard produce long beep means good.
if not that is bad.
2. if produce long beeps then insert the memory.
3. if same happen.hear long beep. then clean or replace memory.

If your are sure evething is ok in the mboard; then you can test your drive:

Hard drive test:

1. first fixed well all the connection bet the HDD.
2. if work then ok, if not then,
3. replace other IDE cable/ sata cable and fixed well again.
4.if still thesame; then
5. examine your HDD , the circuit maybe shorted.
