I have a laptop , and it suddenly stopped working,i mean when i on it, i can only see a black screen with the letters. thats all it doesnt even load the bios, what can i do? laptop power button when...

It's possible something internal failed, happens a lot due to cooling fans that quit. There's a million other things that could have caused it though, so I'd recommend sending it in for service.

Computer won't start

When the screen is black, try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del; a soft reset should kick it back into gear. Did the laptop shut down unexpectedly due to power loss/overheating/etc..?

Toshiba P35-S611 will not come on.

Simplify -
1.swap between both sticks of ram.
2. remove hard drive (should be right on the bottom near the RAM cover.
3. Remove CD drive (usually just one screw on the bottom where the end of the drive would be)

If those dont help, then its likely a CPU or motherboard problem which would require a lot of disassembly of the system to check.

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.

Cooling fan stop working

It's normal for the fan to stop and start, as needed. However, it sounds as if the heat sink attached to the processor and fan may be clogged with dust/fuzz/hair, etc. If you can, vacuum or blow air back through the ventilation ports to clear the debris.
This usually causes the fan to run constantly. It's possible that you need to adjust the power management settings in control panel-toshiba power management.
Also,try keeping the laptop in a cool place and see if it makes a difference.
Let me know how it works.
Good luck

Toshiba M35X-S109 Doesnt Start

you may have a faulty motherboard connection, but try connecting the power adapter in without the battery and see if it runs, then replace the battery back in the compartment.
