Toshiba M305D S4830 laptop wont start

I have M305D S4830 laptop. I put it to sleep in the night. In the morning when i tried to turn it on, it wouldnt start. The light on the switch turns on and it charges the battery fine, but no HDD activity(but it does spin up and stay), no screen, nothing. The fan turns on and then turns off in 1 sec and then just the power indicator lights stay on... i also checked cmos battery, removed it and put it back.its voltage is also fine...
checked with RAM/without it, with hdd/ without it, with dvd drive/ without it...still same...i suppose the bios should kick in without any of these things, right? any help will be appreciated in debugging the fault...thanks!!

Hello PPL! Maybe this WILL HELP you! I HAD absolutely the same problem >> 3 months of god **** stress, didn't find any solution, till one day i found on my Recovery CDs one note!! >> It sounds like:
"BEFORE pressing power button, HOLD 'C' button and while Holding 'C' button push POWER Button ONCE!! to start Laptop, KEEP Holding 'C' button!!! untill appears TOSHIBA screen!" then release 'C'. After that, it will appear "Operating System not Found">>then just do a restart by pushing Power Button and Start again! For me, It Worked!! and i'm god **** happy now)...let me know if it Helped you, Good Luck!

Same problem here.. Used my laptop like I would normally, but I don't remember if I Hibernated or did a full Shutdown. Anyway a couple of hours later I tried to turn it on with no luck--it won't boot. 1) The on/off button, battery, and wifi would light up but that's it. 2) The HD light would probably blink once. 3) Caps lock will not light up
After reading some tips, I left the laptop un-powered (no battery/plug) for about 5 hours. Powered it only through AC, no DVD drive, and still no luck. Took the memory out, swapped HD, tried a different AC adapter, and still doesn't work.
My only hope is to leave it without power longer and try it again. Maybe without the cmos battery.

If you guys have had this issue and was able to fix it, please advice.
Thanks!

Hi Guy,
Try those key during the first seconds of the start: ESC, DEL, F1, F2
Do some training before you start to get those keys hit alternatively during the first 3 seconds of start.
Let me know how it goes..

I have a defective motherboard for a toshiba satelite 14.1 laptop model m305d-s4830 part a000023270. Where can I get a used or refurbished part under $125 u.s.. I only had this computer for three months...


I've had the same problem for almost a year now. We need to write to Toshiba to recall the motherboard on this model. I was told it's too expensive to purchase as it is almost the price of a brand new laptop.
