1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced

Easynote tj74 wont turn on


Your not getting power? When you plug the laptop in does the Battery charge light come on? Are you getting power to the laptop? Do you have a multimeter to verify voltage from th AC outlet to the AC jack? Or ,the power gets to the laptop and push the on/off button you get no response? Or, you push the on/off button and the laptop starts then shut down? No lights, no leds blink. Remove battery, Try another cord/charger. Has it been dropped or damaged that would jar loose a connection, or pulled by the cord resulting in a damaged AC jack?

My cursor froze and it wont't move


Try to force your machine to power down (off) by pressing and holding the power button for several seconds (up to 10). If no success, disconnect any AC power and remove the battery. {It can not run without a source of power.} After it has powered down, do what is necessary to restart it. The problem should be gone for the moment. If you had to remove the battery to get the machine to turn off, go into your operating system options and configure the power button to "shut down" a running machine when it is pressed and held down.

My laptop wont start up... There is power going to the machine but it wont boot up... Model is: Toshiba Compaq -#cq60-410sa? Can you help?


Hello,

One of the possibilities, that the NB does not power ON is due to improper turning off of the laptop or if it was left idle and was not shutdown and just left connected to the ac adapter. Here is one of the simple troubleshooting step you may try. Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB. If the laptop will not boot by doing this, take it to the nearest repair center to have it check for possible motherboard issue.

Hope this works.

My daughters Toshiba satellite l505d will not boot up correctly. It starts but then nothing happens. What do I need to do. Have already taken battery out and restarted. Any help would be helpful.


Try the following.
1. Remove battery and plug in the AC Adapter and check if it works
If yes - Battery is defective
If no - Motherboard Problem/AC adapter

2. Check the AC adapter LED indicator if its lighted or not(double check by a multitester)
If lighted - it works properly
if not - replace
3. Try to reinstall WINDOWS operating system by the use of the installer CD
4. Reformat your computer and install necessary drivers and applications

Thanks. Cheers!

Laptop Toshiba Satellite A200 Model No. PSAF6A-02C01N fail boot


Try removing / swapping / reseating the memory.

Try booting with one stick only, if the top slot doesn't work, try booting the bottom slot. Try both sticks.

Let me know what happens.

My Toshiba wont turn on. I tried holding the power


Hi there, Your ac adapter is damaged & that's why power does not transfer in your notebook. The capacitor of adapter is burned & that's why the noise started. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.
