Toshiba 400cs does not boot

I am running windows 95 on my 400cs. I powered it down and when I tried to start it later it would not. The ac power indicator light (green) and the battery light (amber) come on but when the on button is pushed the computer does not boot.

Any help appreciated.

Charging battery compaq presario c700


If you can reach inside the computer and rub the battery contacts gently to remove the corrosion ,which is invisible , this will help greatly. Sometimes even a new battery will suffer the same. Clean the battery contacts also turn off the laptop and charge it fully do this on a regular basis. Say once every 2 months

Hi there! What is happening here is the computer is not posting up. Does it show you the windows logo? I believe not? Usually for this kind of problem you can try this steps . First unplug all the external devices connected to your computer like printer,scanner then unplug the power cable/Ac adapter connected to your computer from the power outlet or strip if your using one and make sure that you will take out the battery as well.. Try to press and hold the power button for like 20seconds (you have to do that to remove any flea power inside the system we called this "power cycle").After that plug in the Ac adapter and start the computer normally by pressing the power button again. If the system power on normally that would be great but if not there might be problem with the hardware so you have to contact Toshiba it will be better if the system is still in warranty (Take note of the keyboard lit lights as well cause Toshiba technical support might ask that ). Hope this help you. God Bless...

Disconnect the AC power.
Physically remove the "add-on" video-card,
to force the motherboard to use the "integrated' video-card.
Connect the AC power,
and boot to see if any video is displayed.

Disconnect the AC power.
Temporarily disconnect the power-cables and data-cables
from the disk-drive, and the CD-drive.
Remove any other "add-in" cards (sound? TV tuner? network?)
If there's more than one stick of RAM, reduce it to one stick.

Connect the AC power,
and boot to see if any video is displayed in this "bare-bones" configuration.

Try the add-in video-card in another computer, just to confirm that it still works.

Toshiba laptop won't bootup with or without hard drive or with or without memory sticks


hi wvrd

you say it wont boot up, but do you actual mean, it wont start up?
are there any lights on when plugged in, are the fans running ect..or does it just appear dead...(no lights or sounds)

there is a difference if its not booting
or it wont power on

if it is starting up, but not booting to windows, post back and we can go from there.

i see some are assuming its booting up but not to windows, but till we know for sure if its not booting or its not powering up, we wont be able to advise you further till you clarify its state!

this could be something as simple as the power adapter if its not powering on.

Tecra M3 won't boot, hdd light comes on then off.


The hard disk can be installed in another computer, but it won't boot up and run unless the computer is the same make and model with the same devices as the previous computer.
If it is not then you need to do a fresh Windows install to get a working computer.
What you can do as an alternative is to install the hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

P25-s609 display


When you say you turn it on, do any of the lights on the laptop light up? Does it make any beeps?

Have you done anything to your laptop or has anything happened that you think might have caused this?

Start off by simplifying your setup as much as possible to eliminate any outside influences.

Remove anything plugged into the laptop. Then unplug power and remove the battery. With battery out and power disconnected, hold down the power switch 15 seconds (this can clear out a corrupt BIOS).

Reconnect only AC power and try to power up. Verify your AC power has a power light lit up and all connections are snug.

If no go, try only with the battery and no AC.

Still no go, remove battery and any removable drive (CD, DVD, etc.). Connect AC power and retry boot.

If you feel comfortable removing the hard drive, remove it and retry boot.

If all drives are out, all external and internal devices removed and still no display, try removing the memory and putting it back in (reseating it).

Let me know if that helps or if you need further help.

Laptop won't run on ac power and keeps shutting down


Check that the AC power works, go to a repair shop and test a different one or have voltages checked with a multimeter.

If the AC adapter is fine, then it is usuall because AC socket solder joints on laptop are broken. In this case , it is a delicate repair, and must be done by an expert repairman.

Asus a8v-vm se fans always run


Hi jderek4, try this. locate the toggle switch on the back of the power supply. Just find it do not flip it.
Plug the PSU's power cord into the PC. Just as you got a good connection & the PC begains to power up move the toggle switch to it's other position. The PC should power off that very second.
If the PC does not shut off than the PSU is bad. If it did shut down wait a few seconds. Press the cases power on button. The PC should start to boot up. Let it finish loading. Click the start button & choose to shut down windows. The PC should shut off.
Yes? If not than your back to (bad power supply). Swap it out.
