Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook

Toshiba Satellite Laptop 2405-S201 won't power up

It's been in the state before--some kind of mega sleep mode. At that time, I call Toshiba Tech Support and then had me hit a key combination with the battery out and it came up after. I can't remember the key combination and tech support is tied up with calls today.

    Satellite A135 S2246
    Power button lights up, fan runs: on for 10 seconds, then off for 20 sec, on -10, off 20,. . .USB ports have power, HDD indicator lights up only momentarily, no boot up, no CDrom/dvd drive functions, no screen, batt OK, AC adapter connected. I changed the power settings for sleep, stand-by, hibernate, a day or two prior to this. this Satellite A135 S2246 is just over 1year old. (warranty JUST expired). This same laptop began prompting for a BIOS password 6 months ago, Even though I had never set a password.
    Had to ship it off to a "authorized" toshiba dealer/repair shop, took two months.
    Any help anybody?

One possibility would be to remove the battery and AC adapter and then just hold down the power button for about 5 seconds.

Put the battery and AC adapter back in and givr it a try.

Hope this helps!

    I just fixed my Laptop from the constant restart problem, no screen, dvd spins, and keeps restarting and stopping.


    Heres how:

    (with Laptop off & battery is installed)

    I held down the (Power Button for 20 seconds)

    I let go and it booted.


    It was the only thing I didn't try and it worked.

    I kept disconnecting the power supply and the battery, instead of trying it while everything was connected.

    I really hope this helps some people.

My dvd/cd is not seen by my laptop toshiba satellite 2405-S201


Go into the BIOS and reset it to factory default. If the drive still isn't being seen then you'll need to take the drive out of the laptop and then put it back in and be sure it reseats back into the slot properly.

If the drive still isn't being shown then its either the dvd drive or the motherboard is bad. You won't know until you try another known working drive. If the 2nd drive works then you know its the drive. If the 2nd drive doesn't work then you know its the controller on the motherboard thats bad and the motherboard would have to be replaced.
