Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S149 Notebook
Hello, I am checking my nephew's toshiba satellite m35sx-s149. When the power button is pressed the fan starts and run for about 5 seconds, then shuts down. The screen never comes on. The light around the power button stays on but there is no indication that the laptop is working. When I hold the power button in for several seconds the unit turns off.
I tried connecting an external monitor to see if a windows splash screen would appear, but got the same result. Are notebooks known for poor quality?
I am having the same exact problem. I have tore the system down all the way to memory, motherboard, and LCD. The fan stops spinning after about 5 seconds. Sometimes the system will post (with the fan stopped), but as soon as I touch the keyboard, the video goes out and the system freezes. I am a certified technician with years of experience. I personally believe this is a motherboard issue. The portable is out of warranty, so I am not going to know for sure until I replace the motherboard. Since this is such a common issue, Toshiba should replace the motherboard (regardless of warranty status). I will never purchase a Toshiba again.
