Question about Toshiba Satellite M105-S3004 Notebook

1 Answer

No power-up No prior issues, no history of power problems. Left the laptop untouched for a week and when I tried to power it up: If you press the power button, the power button LED lights up, but nothing else starts whirr, no hard drive light...nothing. Behaves the same whether the AC adapter is plugged in or not (battery power). Please help!

Re: No power-up

See if this helps-
Unplug the power adapter. Remove the battery. Plug in the power adapter. Attempt to power up.
If that doesn't work-
Power down. Remove the hard drive and CD drive, also floppy drive if you have one. Disconnect the cables to any external devices that you might have attached. Remove all of the memory cards. Replace 1 memory card in the main slot,only. This will reseat the memory card. Power back up and see if the system comes up to a BIOS screen. If not, and you have more than 1 memory card, try swapping to the other memory card. If BIOS comes up, start reinstalling each item (Hard drive first) one at a time, attempting to bring the system up after each item is installed. If the BIOS screen doesn't come up with everything disconnected, you'll need to disconnect the LCD screen (internally) and hook up an external screen. If BIOS shows up on the external monitor at this time, you have a bad LCD screen.
If nothing in this process seems to work, you probably have a bad mother board.
If you have any questions, please ask.

If you remove the power adapter and battery, press the power button to discharge any latent power. Plug the power adapter back in press power. If it still shows flashing Caps lock light, it has overheated and requires a GPU rework/repair.

What history are you talking about.
Are you talking about web browser history then in chrome simply press ctrl+h and history comes.Click on clear browsing history and it's done.
In firefox press Ctrl+h and history will be shown on left hand side and right click on which day history you want to delete and option will come simply click delete and it's done.

If you are asking for any-other history please add comment.

Computer won't boot up. Could hear a grinding noise on the top left side (opposite side of the HDD). Took the bottom cover off and reconnected the battery and power. The fan (assume it's the processor fan)...


You can try the following steps:

1. Unplug the power from the laptop and remove the battery then press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds

2. Put the battery back in, turn on the laptop without plugging the power to the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue)

3. Remove the battery and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, after that, plug the power cord and turn on the laptop (if this didn't resolve the issue)

4. Remove the power cord and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, disconnect the Hard drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnec the hard drive

5. Remove the Optical Drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnect the optical drive

6. Remove the memory chip, if you have 2 memory chips installed in the 2 memory slots (remove both of them) now test each one of the memory to each slots turning on the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue) Put the memory chip back in

7. Reseat the CPU and try to make sure that it's installed properly. Turn on the laptop and test if it's gonna work (If this didn't resolve the issue)

8. Reseat the power cords coming from the power supply of the laptop and test the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue)

9. Disconnect everything and just leave the CPU installed and turn on the laptop.

10. If all else fails, there's a big possibility that the problem may be with the power supply or the motherboard of the laptop.

(Note: you may try to clean your computer if there is a large amount of dust. You may try to remove the CMOS battery)

Pavilion dv6000 when power button is pressed,

Have you tried to boot the laptop with the power cable connected? Is the charging indicator on when you connect it to the adapter? If the charging indicator does not light up, check if your adapter output and try booting it with the power cable connected.

How do i check my internet usage history.

While in IE, click on Tools, then Internet options, under "Days to keep pages in history" defualt is 20.... there will be a certain amount of days it keeps the history. You can change this setting but you can't go back any further than what your settings are set at to begin with.
