Question about Toshiba Satellite (K000004080) Motherboard
I think it (motherboard) may have short. would start up. when it did I updated bios. then after a plane trip. It won't start. laptop was inside passenger cabin. Any thoughts. Don
Did you boot up successfully after the bios update?
If not then that is most likely the cause. If the bios update is interrupted before it completes, the will not load successfully. If that happens there is no back up for the bios. You will need to physically remove the bios chip and replace it with another.
As far as the plane trip there are no conditions specifically related to the pressurized cabin of an aircraft that would be harmful to a laptop.
Although It's unlikely it is possible that the bios had an issue that did not surface immediately after the update.
Most of the time even with a shorted motherboard some components will initialize, for instance the hard drive or system beep alerts. If you hear nothing then chances are it's the bios. Without that the motherboard doesn't even know it's a motherboard.
Hope this helps

According to your problem first check the bios update. Check
that you have updated the bios properly. Run the motherboard in updated bios,
so reset the bios. This may occur for another cause also. So check the electric
outlet where the system is being plugged. Make sure that the SMPS is OK and
compatible with motherboard. If the SMPS fulfil the minimum requirement of the pre
updated motherboard then updated bios may not support. Check that you have
installed the SMPS power cable in your motherboard properly. It will help you.
