WILL NOT TURN ON AFTER TRYING TO ACCESS MOTHERBOARD

I HAVE A TOSHIBA M115 SATELLITE LAPTOP THAT TURNED ON BEFORE, BUT RECENTLY, AFTER I ATTEMPTED TO ACCESS THE COMPONENTS INSTEAD THE LAPTOP (AND WAS UNSUCCESSFUL) THE LAPTOP WILL NOT TURN ON NOW, BUT WHEN I PLUG IN THE CHARGER IT SHOWS A BLUE LIGHT LIKE IT'S CHARGING. I'M NOT SURE IF THE MOTHERBOARD IS BAD NOW THAT I ATTEMPTED TO ACCESS THE INSIDE OF THE MAIN COMPONENTS OR DID SOMETHING COME LOOSE? IN ADDITION, HOW DO YOU ACCESS THE INSIDE COMPONENTS OF THE LAPTOP IS THERE A LOCK OR SOMETHING?

You have to disassemble the entire case to get to the motherboard. Otherwise the user serviceable parts all have small access panels on the bottom. Did you try removing the battery? Toshibas can be picky at times. Remove the battery and let it sit for a few minutes. Then put it back in and try to start it up. Depending on what you tried to do to get into it you could have caused a data cable to come loose. There are numerous small flat multi-wire cables that connect to the motherboard. it's easy to get one to come loose and not realize it.

Remove bios password on Toshiba Satellite M115-S3144


I agree with Ginko. I had one that someone brought to me, and I removed the CMOS battery. This one was actually soldered to the motherboard. I melted the solder, removed contact to the motherboard, and re-soldered the battery to the motherboard. This fixed it.

M115 s1061 overclock


Overclock can be done by setting fsb higher by percentage to speed up cpu frequency by percentage. But some cpu can not be overclocked and may overheat and shut down. And some drams can not be changed to higher fsb.

My Toshiba Satellite M115 S3094 is asking for a BIOS password after I reinstall the Windows XP. I Cant' access any folder of BIOS system or the Windows. Please, help me! I'm from Brazil, and Toshiba...


This happened to my Sister's Toshiba laptop, it's just coincidence that it happened to you when reinstalling Windows. The only solution is to short out the CMOS battery on the motherboard. Doing this will probably void your warranty, so I cannot detail how it's done, however google is a great resource. I warn you though, shorting the wrong things on a motherboard can permanently ruin your laptop.

Toshiba satellite m115-s3094,no power


try to turn on your laptop with ac adpater plug in only (no battery)

if this thing work, download the BIOS update..because all battery have smart sensor this might be the reason.

after you install the updated BIOS plug the battery and power supply and turn on your computer

if you did this and still getting the same issue call your manufacturer support...it might be the motherboard.
