Probably burned struff up ... on the bed the computer cannot get vital cooling air because the covers blocked the fan suction.

If this is the case, you have a parts computer. Dont try to fix it.

My Toshiba Sat P305D-S8834 powers on (fan runs, power and battery lights work)) but then does nothing. I'm thinking its the CPU or motherboard.

Do you think its the screen? I had one where the screen would go on and off if you opened it and closed it. You could try plugging a monitor into it to see if that is the problem. Also sometimes if you hit the fn button and one on the top it will turn off the screen.
Just a couple ideas

Screen is black. Power button lights up, fans and DVD seem to work.

hi there,

What you are experiencing with your laptop is "POST" (Power-on self test) issue. Here are some steps which you can try.

- Remove the battery and ac adapter (as well as external peripherals attached), press the power button for atleast 15 seconds, try to power on your computer again.
- If you have external monitor, hook it up. Display on the external monitor would mean that you have a LCD issue (check LCD cable, LCD inverter and LCD backlight in this case). No display on the external monitor would mean that you need to replace the video card (if dedicated) or replace the whole system board (if integrated).
- Try to reseat or replace the memory module as well, it might help.

My Toshiba satellite P305D-S8834 will not turn on. It was not dropped. I opened our lab top and it would not turn on. I push the power button and lights come on with the power switched an indicator lights....

More an likely its your LCD. If it powers up and you are getting a hard drive activity light then that points to your LCD, could be a damaged backlight or inverter.

Can I install a better CPU into my Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8834 17 1 Widescreen Notebook Computer then the AMD Turion X2 Processor RM-70 it came with?

Changing CPU is a serious change. When your unit was built the processor speed and type were written into the BIOS. When we change the CPU to a different type there is a chance that the BIOS will not recognize it and refuse to boot up. Also Windows was installed with the original CPU and a major change in hardware could mess up Windows.

I did some research and found this model comes with a 2.0-GHz AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core RM-70 CPU and 4GB of RAM. This is not the fastest CPU that can be put in a laptop but a very good one. (faster than mine)

I can guide you through the steps to replace it but my advice is stick with what you have until it breaks and buy a faster laptop. The upgrade won't gain you enough to justify the expense.
