Question about Toshiba (K000002020) Motherboard
I turn the laptop on it makes a little noise and then nothing, the screen is still black
Ok folks, not to sure if anyone is following this, However, I posted a problem a week or so ago, and this is an update to that problem. in Regards to my Toshiba M35x-S161 problem with the screen not coming on nor booting up. This is an update and may not be the same for all of you concerned.
I have checked the ram memory and found that to be working, and as mentioned was able to access the hard drive using a caddy to see that it is intact. However, shortly after doing so (I had copied pictures to a thumb nail for my sister), I began to experience a slowdown on my IBM laptop. It suddenly hit me, VIRUS. I scanned the IBM through Housecall, and what ever was affecting it caused house call to shut down 3 times, but did finally clean it. I pulled the Toshiba's hard drive stuck it into the Caddy and ran a scan on it using AVG and yet another IBM that is clean. After a slow scan there it was, not 1, not 2, but 3 Trojan virus plus 2 down loaders and a few other goodies. With the now cleaned Hard drive, I tried booting the Toshiba, and at first I still experienced the same problem, then a funny thing happened. I laid the laptop down an hit the side of it and poof here came the boot up. Unfortunately, it wouldn't go all the way, but enough to tell me that 'MOST LIKELY' the Virus halted the computer operation but killing the boot sector, and secondly, because it was stalled out in the boot up, it over heated, and "may have" loosened a solder connection on or near the switch or the power connector. I haven't had the time to take the unit apart yet, but plan to as soon as I can get a couple of days off.
I don't know how many of you this may help out, but at least this forum gives me a place to post my progress... will keep you updated as I can..
