Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237 Notebook

1 Answer

I push the ?Power? button on my P205-S6237 and the power light is on, and hard drive starts to spin ( I hear the sound), the DVD-ROM and the processor fan start to spin, but nothing else happens. The processor fan shuts down in few seconds. The screen is black, the hard drive light does not indicate that it works, another lights are permanently off. I replaced the memory, hard drive, battery, but there is no result.

I have the same problem with this computer if you are like me the battery life is also VERY short so it goes dead quite often.

I fixed a laptop a few months back with this problem "or atlest the exact same symptoms" what I did to fix it was take out the ram and the bio battery which rest the the bios and I was able to start it normally.

I however am currently unable to easily find the bios battery on this motherboard. I have been looking for a diagram to no success. I know about computers but dont want to just start taking it appart. If you find the battery or a diagram please let me know.

Dell OptiPlex GX620 no boot sometimes it appears black screen with a cursor blinking


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

My hard drive does nt seem to connect I hear it spinning but nothing


Your hard drive could be experiencing boot files issues. You may have to re-install your operating system again. Or do a repair from the installation disk insert into the CD or DVD Rom and then boot from there. Select open DVD or CD any key at the boot. Then install again and do a repair it will reload all the boot goodies. Or just redo the whole thing back to factory this is what I do when stuff like this happens obviously something got corrupted. This is how I would handle it also save and files if you can once fixed hopefully you did so that you can reload them again when you start from scratch.
Last ditch would be to unplug the computer from its power source then push in the power button and wait until you see a flash. Then plug the computer back in and power up again this sets the hard drive and drivers back to default settings. This is a hard boot process. Sometimes this works more times than not. Hope this assists you thanks for using FixYa! do not forget to vote for me. John

Powers on wont post but dvd rom


Eject any disk from the DVD device.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the "data" and/or the "power" connectors from the DVD-ROM.
Turn the computer on, and see if it starts when the DVD-ROM is not part of your system.
If it starts, then your DVD-ROM needs to be replaced.

Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237 won't Boot up after full shutdown


i think there is some issues with the OS because i noticed you can't shut it down properly so maybe the files needed in order to shut down had been corrupted but one more theory, the bios settings make sure that everythings configured properly there by checking the power options on the bios setup(the blue screen)so try setting it to default and change the boot priority to HDD,CDROM,FLOPPY.
