    Replaced ram stick,didn't change anything,would the problem with the graphics card prevent it from posting?I don't even here it posting at all.As far as the warranty it ended,and Toshiba is saying atleast $425 to see what's going on.I've seen as many as 100 post about this being a know motherboard problem,most have had them replaced atleast 3 time within 18mo.

I have encountered this problem before on many laptops and sometimes your monitor can just go bad or a piece of bad hardware in your laptop but in my case most of these problems are the monitor going bad. how old is this laptop

    I have two more symptoms that you can check out. Sometimes the ram sticks can go bad and cause this problem and or it could be that your onboard graphics card has gone bad if so then see if your warranty hasn't expired because most laptops you cant take the graphics card out.

  • nick11531 Nov 23, 2009

    yea it has to be your graphics card on your motherboard i can't think of anything else. If you have to pay that much for them to check it out might as well get a new laptop. but fixing something like that is dang near impossible. And yea it can cause posting problems. I mean the graphics card is on the motherboard and if that goes bad well then basically your whole motherboard has gone bad.

Toshiba A135-S2276,If the mother board is bad would your usb hubs still get power?On my laptop they still work,could there be another problem preventing it from posting at all,just a black screen


They can still get power depending on the issue with the motherboard.

You should try:

Resetting the memory
Booting with only one memory stick
Booting with the hard drive out
Booting with the battery and cd / dvd drive removed.

If none of those work then the motherboard is probably toast :(

Laptop wont turn on orange light flashing on front indicating power plug


There could e a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

Try also to reseat the main components of the notebook: the battery, the AC adapter, the memory modules, & the hard drive.
After that try switching it on & see if the problem was fixed.

I re-started my toshiba A135 laptop, and the screen went black


There are dozens of possible root causes for your problem I guess.

But exactly the same happened to me in fact on a packard bell laptop. After my son forced it to reset, it didn't start again. Only one led was lit. After a long search I found that the battery had died and this prevented the laptop to start even when the power supply was plugged in.

Try this: remove the battery, connect it to the power supply and restart.

Hope that helps

My toshiba satellite a135-s2276 won't turn on


A coworker used to work for Toshiba and said that this is common for the Satellite A135 models and under warranty the fix was a motherboard swap for a newer/updated motherboard. Otherwise the unit is unusable.

A135-S2276 does not turn on


Try removing the memory and hard drive. Replace just one memory module and see if it comes up. If it does, replace the hard drive and bring it up. If that works, try replacing the other memory module.
If it doesn't, get back to me for more ideas.
Thanks!
