I've had Toshiba Netbook NB-205 for a year, and the display won't show. The fan will come on for a like two seconds and then cut off. If I need to replace the fan, then I'm fine with that, but if there's...

Try removing the battery and starting it up with only AC power.

Sometimes it doesn't charge properly and will turn off after a second. Removing the battery will sometimes fix this.

Make sure you are getting charge lights as well. If the AC adapter isn't working anymore, it can cause exactly what you're experiencing.

Please leave feedback if you found this helpful. Thanks.

Try removing / swapping / reseating the memory.

Try booting with one stick only, if the top slot doesn't work, try booting the bottom slot. Try both sticks.
