My Toshiba A135 laptop has totally shut down and will not turn back on
Ever since I've had my laptop, I noticed I had to always unplug in from the back prior to shutting down, if not it would start back up. A couple of time a black screen would be there at start up asking me to start up or resume, which the first time I hit start up, it totally wiped my computer out and started it up as it if was brand new computer, now I always hit resume. Last week, I had it sitting idle for approximately 15 minutes and thought it shut itself down, but when I tried to restart it, it won't do anything at all. I thought it was the battery at first or a problem with my cord, but it seems to be fully charged. The fan seems to "try" to run, but doesn't come on. I can't get anything up on the screen. It's as if it died. I can't get it to do anything. The blue button light comes on and the three little blue lights are on next to the spacebar, and just now, I actually placed my ear over the air vents where the fan is to listen, and when I press the on switch, the blue light comes on and I can feel a "deep breath" come out of the vent, and that's all. Is there any hope for my computer???? I have only had it about 6 months. It was a gift, brand new, and the Comp USA is now closed down.

Yes44_yes, If your laptop is only about six months old, I would go to the Toshiba website & register your laptop then Call the tecch support line at (800) 457-7777 most toshiba laptop come with a factory 1 year warranty unless it is a refurbished unit. Then it only has a 30day warranty.

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail. A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust. Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.
If nothing else works remove the battery, leave it for 5 mins then replace it and it will start as normal. Yyou will get an error message usually saying it was not shut down correctly and it may do a system scan but unless there is a real problem with it that will restart it. Ive had to do that twice with mine in the last year.
If you truly believe the problem happened right after installing the new mouse, then you should start by uninstalling the software for it. Go to Control Panel -> Software -> Uninstall. If this fails, you can use the System Restore utility to rollback the Windows registry to a time before you first installed the new mouse software. Have you tried to unplug the mouse and not use it, atleast on the attempted shutdown process?
Try disconnecting power adapter and removing battery for two minutes. If the laptop still does not boot then there is an hardware problem. You can try taking out and putting back ram modules, but my suggestion is to take the laptop at a repair shop, if you cannot fix it by removing battery.
Hi, by pressing the power button in, the computer has gone into standby or hibernate mode.
Heres what you Do:- press and hold the power button for between 10 to 20 seconds.
that should bring it out of hibernation.
if that does,nt work. remove the main battery.
when you,ve resolved the problem, run a disk-scan via your windows operating system.
