Re: Toshiba P35-S611 will not come on.
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.

The processor is over heating. I have a p-35 s6053 and it used to do the same thing until I fixed it.
Do the fans come on or anything when you first try to turn it on ??????
I'd bet the fans come on strong and then after about 5-60 seconds it just shuts off. let me know if i'm right and I can tell you how to fix it,
The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).
Solution: If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.
Open the processor area located under your laptop. You can detached and re attached the processor, some sort of lose contact on pins. If same problem occur, your processor may burnt out. pm me email@example.com i will assist you remotely.
If you have to wiggle the power cord it is most likely the DC jack on the motherboard. It is usually the center pin in the the jack that breaks the solder point and the small tension band inside the jack housing weakens.
I have just fixed the same problem on my Toshiba p35 s611. The power jack inside the laptop had been damaged. To reach the problem you must take apart the entire laptop (there are a few guides for doing this online). Next I simply found the positive connection coming from the jack (it is the wire coming out of the back of the jack) and followed it to where it enters the motherboard. I simply flipped it around and re-soldered that one spot. Other sites recommended I remove the jack but I couldn't melt the solder enough to do so, however just trying and adding some fresh solder was enough to fix the problem. I no longer need to jiggle the power connector to the right angle just to get power.
