Re: will not turn on. Toshiba 2060cds
I am having a hard time finding the manual for this older laptop, but, there is always a power button somewhere on the laptop itself, on the side, front, top of the keyboard, push everything and anything till you find it. Just plugging it in will not turn it on.

More information is needed:
Are the power on?
Are the power cable lose on the back side?
Are the power cable plugged into a socket?
Are there any lights indicating that it receives power?
If you switch it off and then on on the monitor itself, without a connected computer turned on, do you see a logo from Toshiba and then some text indicating no signal is received?
Simply take the laptop to Staples or any computer store and any associates will show you all the available RAMs recommended for you laptop because they have a cross reference data base - if the upgrade don't work, they'll buy it back or get you one that will. You won't have to spend unnecessary time doing the research yourself.
there are different ways on how to check the problem you encounter regarding on your machine. kindly follow the procedures below:
- first take out the battery and plug in the power supply. if it works, suspected it's a faulty battery (if your machine is under warranty call the service center for the replacement of your battery
- if the machine won't turn on after taking out the battery and pugging in the power, take out the hard disk, plug in th power. if it works, suspected hard disk faulty. (replace hard disk)
- if machine still won't turn on after taking out the hard disk, take out the memory card. you will hear a beep sound after taking out memory card. if it works suspected memory card faulty. (replace memory card)
- if you didn't hear any sound after taking out the memory card, suspected motherboard faulty. (replace motherboard)
If you are familiar with your laptop, i.e. the locations of hard drive, try to take it out of the its bay and put it back again. Also, if you can have someone check your battery packs, because from my experience with this laptop, when the battery packs is not charging well, i got some booting up problems.
it has nothing to do with the ram, it is the issue of the adapter or battery for toshiba laptop, if the output volatge form the adapter is not steady, the light will get yellow and blink,try it on another toshiba laptop. if it is normal, u should test the toshiba laptop battery by the multimeter, connect the electroprobes wiht the anode and cathode, if the pointer does not fixed in a short time ,the battery is the issue. change it for a new one.
Although symptom is showing that AC Adaptor is not working as its not providing power to the unit. I will suggest you to perform some basic troubleshooting steps. Check if outlet is working if not check with known working outlet. If you have a multimeter you can the output of the AC adaptor.
Also you can perform full power cycle and component discharge. Take the battery out and disconnect the AC adaptor press the power button and hold about 7 seconds. After that put the AC adaptor in and test again.
If issue persist take to nearest Service center check with known working AC adaptor. After that I believe you will figure out the best solution.
This problem has happened to me on several occasions. I found that the connector that you plug your power supply into on the motherboard gets loose. Not making a good connection and like you said needs to be re soldered. Before attempting this, stick a small screwdriver in there and see if it's loose.
If it is, then EVERYTHING needs to come off to get to it. Not a quick project. I suggest you take pictures along the way just in case. Good luck!
