Question about Toshiba N97842 13.3 TECRA M8-S8011 INTEL CORE 2 DUO T7100 1.8GHZ NOTEBOOK PC PC Notebook
When I turn on the laptop the on light comes on but the forth light (HDD) does not come and the sceen does not light up. If I shut it down using the ON/OFF switch (held for 8-10 seconds) and try it again, sometimes it will start up and everything will be working. It can take several attempts.
The true test here is, can it boot into the BIOS every time. If it can, then I suspect your getting ready to have a hard drive failure. Intermittent boot failures and non-start-ups are usually caused by a faulty hard drive. If it was your boot menu or boot loader, then it would never boot period. I would suspect the hard drive overheated and is damaged, or there are damaged sectors on the drive that contain some of your windows files.
