Re: HD isnt running

Sounds like your motherboard just died. This is a known issue with Toshiba. They extended the warranty until Nov 7th of 2007, but now it is out of warranty. :-\ You could try phoning Toshiba (good luck getting someone who speaks English) and see if they have any other solutions. Repair is in the neighbourhood of $500 or less, so it seems.

When I press power button, only power button is lit green solid and nothing else happens...nothing on the screen...all black. No sound codes. Tried external monitor...nothing. CPU fan keeps running....

yes its motherboard. GPU has failed. Most likely you'll need to get your motherboard Reballed or Reflowed. I have found some reasonable business partners that do this service through ebay. usually runs 80-140 to get fixed. good luck!

Toshiba M35X-S349 (Freezes Periodically)

Update: I looked at the plug connecting the HD to the PC and pulled it about 1/2 way back off and reinserted into machine. I then pulled the HD back out and noticed that it was not all the way pushed back on and it wasnt parallel to the HD. Basically I am thinking that the HD is not sitting properly in the bay for some reason or another, but I have been running 10+ hours with no problems as of yet. I did reformat the HD so I am going down that road of reloading and letting run awhile, reboot, repeat. Not sure if solution, but looking real good at this point.

M35X Screen went black and will not come back on after shut down, reset and power up

Try to connect to external monitor and see if you see anything. Of course when you do that you have to hold at the same time fn key and the key that has a blue picture of computer screen.

Compaq Evo N410c- Will not start up

The only thing you can do is to check to see if the installed memory is making contact. To do that, open up the access panel, unclip the memory and then reinstall it. If that doesn't fix it, you're into a trip to the shop.
