Question about Toshiba Satellite M65 Notebook
This is the second time this has happened. Last Christmas I powered the unit down and took it with me out of town, on the second day it would not boot up. The fan would come on for afew seconds, the cd/dvd drive light would flash for a few seconds then it would shut back off. I replaced the mothercoard and it has worked for exactly a year. This year I did the same thing powered it down and took it with me. Got to my destination and same thing. I'm positive it is charging so it is not a battery problem. I removed the cover off the hard drive, it does not spin nor the head move. I cannot believe the motherboard is bad (again) I've re-seated all the normal parts (not processor as yet). Do you have any suggestions???
Usually the capacitors on mobo for voltage regulators are bad. Replace all 4 of them and you're happy for a while :)

I started having the shut off problem in spring of 06. I thought I had some virus, looked online and everywhere. One site suggested the grounding was bad to the monitor. I disasembled and reasembled, problem fixed......until, it dropped about 2 weeks ago.....problem resurfaced......I'm disasembling right now.

Do you have access to another Hard drive you can try. I have a feeling its your hdd, I had a problem like you are talking about and found it to be my HDD I replaced after I tried a friends to see and it works. Presto it works, Thank the Computer Gods LOL Hope that gets you going again. Take Care Now. Bear001
