    Toshiba tecra a-4.
    After a long plane trip I opened my lap top and what looks like an ink spot appeared on my screen. However, I was still able to use my laptop with a slight obstructed view. Now after returning from the trip I'm not able to power up. The ac adpater is plugged in, but no power.

No power at all to the unit? That is very bad indeed. What is the make / model of your unit and I can give you more info.

Thanks

    That is not good at all. When you plug in the AC adapter do any lights come on on the laptop, usually there is a light or little display indication that it is being charged at least.

    It sounds like either the port for the adapter has been damaged, and the battery is completely discharged, or that the motherboard in the computer has been damaged, or has just failed. Regardless of what one it is this is very bad news for the laptop. You are going to want to call Toshiba to get this fixed, there is no easy solution that you can do to get it going again. Their number is 800-457-7777

    You can also try a local computer repair shop that deals with laptops, but I would recommend going through Toshiba directly. They can also fix the screen problem, it sounds like somehow on this trip it was damaged, I'm so sorry to hear that :(.

    Thanks

Why won 't computer communicate with code checker


Check the cigarette lighter fuse. This is what powers the DLC. If the fuse is good, check and see if the lighter works. If not, you have a bad wire. Code readers have to have power from the car. Most scanners have there own power and will read the computer, unless the data wire is bad or the computer is bad.

My asb light comes on when starting and stays on. Lights won't come on , power locks won't work, power windows won't work, radio won't work. All fuses are good and car runs fine.


Those are all really common symptoms of the alternator going bad on those cars. I would have it checked to make sure it's charging properly.

User Control and Display Board If the washer won't start, the user control and display board may be defective. Check for power to the washer first.

Timer If the washer won't start the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.

Line Fuse If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown.

Thermal Fuse If the washer won't start the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.

Line Fuse and Holder If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown, or the line fuse holder might be damaged and need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the washer won't start the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other parts and causes first.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't start the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't start the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Incoming Power Problem If the washer won't start check to see if there is power at the electrical outlet which the washer is plugged into. Plug a lamp or radio into the outlet to check it. If the outlet is dead, check the circuit breakers or fuses for the home.

Power Cord If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.

Hi.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.


Good luck.
