That could be a cpu problem or a man board error. You should be seeing some kind of error code either flashing leds or a beep. If it shows no code then if the memory is good, it can be the ram connector or the controller. Basically to generate any code the ram has to be good and the board has to see at least the first 64k of it. It will generate the code even with a bad cpu as long as it can use that first small bit of ram.

Swap the ram locations and you should try just one single module at a time. Sometimes heat cycles or vibrations will work the ram loose. So just taking them out and carefully reseating them can fix this problem.

The two normal causes for this on a laptop are a bad cpu that usually has overheated and the first suspect is always ram.
Either of those can be replaced fairly cheap. Past that you are looking at a main board replacement.

From your description the cpu sounds like the probable cause.

    Thanks for the the response. I swapped the ram into each slot 1 at a time and nothing changed. So I guess I can suspect the CPU. Thank you for your help!

My toshiba satellite p205-s6277 wont restore or configure also it freezes an error that the registry log has nop room


Click Start/My Computer then Right Click on the C drive and select Properties. If it shows zero bytes or that the drive is full and has no free space then that's why it is freezing and locking up. The system has no room to do anything.

Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237 won't Boot up after full shutdown


i think there is some issues with the OS because i noticed you can't shut it down properly so maybe the files needed in order to shut down had been corrupted but one more theory, the bios settings make sure that everythings configured properly there by checking the power options on the bios setup(the blue screen)so try setting it to default and change the boot priority to HDD,CDROM,FLOPPY.
