Have a sattellite m505D. Turned it on and only the power light comes on. Screen stays dark with no activity at all. Tried turning off and on several times with same results.

C500 Laptop won't come on power button just flashes


Have you tried attaching an external monitor when the LCD screen is disconnected from the motherboard? this connector is located under the keyboard strip – a piece of plastic just above the keyboard.
If it works, this way, then the video cable isn’t seated properly in the connector on the back of the screen. Plugging the video cable back in should fix the problem.
I don’t know how comfortable you are with taking apart laptops but I think that this information could be useful for you.

SCREEN WENT WHITE


Pity you... take the laptop to HP service. you may need to replace the mainboard.
Try plug in a monitor to it, press together the Fn key and the one that have a monitor like icon in different color. If normal screen comes up, you are in luck - only the screen's cable to the main board is at fault.
If really nothing happen at all (no hard disk activity, no CPU fan), then replace the mainboard or get a new one.
I hope you are not using the laptop on a cloth covered table so that the air intake is blocked. this is how some connectors on the main board melts the soldering so that it's cut off (extreme hard to see by eyes).

No power up on Satellite M35X-s111


Heres the fix:

This requires access to the cpu and heatsink, remove the keyboard and palmrest to access the motherboard, I think you have to remove the screen too. Remove the heatsink and cpu. Reseat the cpu, heres the kicker, press firmly on the center of the cpu while turning the locking screw. Pressing the cpu hard, allows the locking mechinism to get a good bite. Turn the locking screw hard into the end of the turn. Hook up the heatsink and set it back on top of the cpu. Press down on the heatsink over the cpu, fairly strong pressure.

Now test the motherboard, use just cpu, heatsink, memory, power button board and cable and external monitor, you can use your screen instead by just hooking up the cable to motherboard, leave the screen laying flat on the table. Now push the power button with one hand and the other is still applying pressure to the heatsink, no you dont need to screw it down yet. Keep reseating the cpu with varying degrees of pressure if you dont get it go the first time.
The trick will be to get it all assembled with the same results.
There seems to be a problem with the cpu seating correctly, it must come loose and the laptops exhibit the symtoms of no video. It might even be neccessary to insert a wafer thin piece of copper or something in between the cpu and heatsink if the heatsink doesnt apply enough pressure to cpu to keep it seated deep enough to run the computer.

Notebook not starting and screen remains blank.


this will be easer than you think.
first unplug power cord,pull out your battery and test it by pushing the button on the battery. It will be dead. leave it out. plug in power cord, nothing should work. test your power cord. if nothing than test lower on the cord it might be the plug in that plugs into the laptop. what happens is the battery get to low and the lappy goes into a safe mode . you will need a charged battery to get it to boot.
