Same problem in my p30. Cause was cold soldier joint right at the power cord input on motherboard. Very easy fix. Take the laptop apart, remove motherboard, solder the pin. Many pixs on the net about this problem, cheers, richard

Possibly memory chip or hard drive failure,
swap ram chips around to see if that fixes it .

if you have the ability, try the drive in another pc,it will not boot fully but you will be able to tell if it is working ok, else it looks like a service on the cards.

good luck
Terry

Sony PCV RZ44G irresponsive


Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.Just because you see lights around the power button does not mean that the Power Supply is ok. I've seen many times when the Power Supply makes the light around the power button come on and makes the light on the motherboard come on, but it does not have enough power to make the Fan inside the power supply come on or anything else.

How can a remove a stuck Screw inside of a Toshiba Satellite L455-S5989 Laptop. The screw that is stuck holds down a PCIe mini Wireless Card.


Take the laptop apart techgeek564.

You Definitely do Not want it roaming around in there, to short out the laptop.

Here is the Service Manual, (Free),

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Go to the 11th line down.
The one that starts with > Satellite A10
In this listing of files go down to the second line, (Starts with > C650D), and then go across to >
L450. Click on L450.

[The Toshiba Satellite L455-S5989 is part of the Toshiba Satellite L450 series ]

After you click on L450 it will take about 5 seconds to see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
(Took 45 seconds for me just now)
Suggest you let the file download all the way before looking through it.

You are not permanently downloading the file. If you want to save a copy to your computer, and do not know how, post in a Comment.

[This way you won't have to download again. You can also burn a copy of to a CD disk for safekeeping, and having access anytime you want.
Further, you can delete the file from your harddrive after burning a copy, and save harddrive space ]

A) ALL power removed from the laptop. AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

B) Buy and use an ESD wrist strap. Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.
(Electro Static Discharge)

Your body carries Static electricity, and Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.
The ESD wrist strap will relieve your body of Static, and safeguard your laptop from Static shock

Average price of an ESD wrist strap is around $3 to $6. Much cheaper than a new laptop.

C) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Mark each compartment for the area the screws come out of.
There may be as many as 60 screws, and 12 different types.
Do Not mix them up!

You can use a clean egg carton, and mark the egg holders.

D) Make a record as you disassemble. Make drawings and notes. Use a camera, or videocam if available.
(Use Good lighting)
It's nice to have a record to refer back to in case you get interrupted.
