Remove the hard drive and try again. see if it will go further into the boot. it sounds more like the ram has going bad but i have seen bad hard drives shorting out the motherboard before..

Dell inspiron m5030 wont boot up, ac adapter has green light then once it is pluged in light goes out.


Hi,

Try a hard reset. Sometimes it works and is always the first step to take.
Remove the battery and the ac adapter plug from the laptop.
Press and hold the power button for forty seconds.
Install the battery and ac adapter .Now press the power button to attempt a boot into the OS.

If that doesn't work then remove the hard disk to see if it gets past the splash screen and the BIOS whines that it can't find a boo-table OS. That would indicate a hard disk failure.
Also try to remove the memory module(s) from the DIMM slots and then reinstalling them. That reset the modules and cleans some oxidation off the module pins (if there is any)

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you need more information
Thanks

My Toshiba Satellite pro s300 ez2501 , is being stuck and fan should run fastly with rough sound, we cant do any thing at this time, only function key can work but nothing will happened.


This is an open ended question as I am not aware of your problem, however,
Disconnect your power supply and remove the battery.
Refit the battery and plug in the AC adaptor, check the power light and battery light are illuminated.
Keep disconnect any periferals, (USB devices) and ensure the DVD drawer is empty. Press the power button. The POST should now start up flashing a line of led's across the top of the keyboard first followed by the hard drive light.
The BIOS F2 or F12 choice screen will now appear. If it doesn't the laptop hasn't completed POST and can go no further however, if it gets that far;
Press F12 and select Hard Drive for the boot device, the laptop will then try and boot from the hard drive, just as the boot chioce menu dissapears press F8, this will opem a further menu allowing you to repair your system. This, if selected, will collect data stored on drive E and repair the main system putting the OS back as it was when you first purchased the machine.
If that won't work or there is a corrupt file or serious error, you will require an OS system disk.
Place the System disk in the DVD drive, press power until the system tries to boot and when you get to the boot selection menu, press F12 again but select CD/DVD as the boot drive.
Follow my last instructions again and you will have a fresh/repaired system and a working laptop again.
When all is OK go to www.computers.toshiba-europe.com and let toshiba download and install the latest drivers and BIOS.
Hope that helps.

I have a toshiba satellite p305d-s8828 laptop and have 19dc @ plug going into main board and 19dc on motherboard. Is the motherboard fired? And no power on computer.


Since you have measured the voltage on the motherboard I must presume you are saying there is no power "indicator light" on computer. If this is not the case please clarify. If the light is absent please test the battery as these laptops are not designed to work without a battery or with a dead battery. Operating without a battery can spike the motherboard or other components and cause failure due to overvoltage. If you do have a power indicator light then next observe whether the bootup is proceeding with a beep after the POST (power on self test) and whether you can hear the movement of the hard disk drive... possibly indicating failed LCD display or display drivers/setup. Press F8 after the POST beep to get to safe mode display drivers.

For laptop: Toshiba Satellite A105: My battery won't charge/computer won't turn on when plugged in. No lights show when plugged in. Don't know if it's a problem with the chord or the computer. Don't want...


Start by trying another power outlet.

The power adapter should have its own light. If it doesn't light up then the adaper is bad. Kensington.com sells very inexpensive universal power adapters. You might also find a good deal on eBay.

If the adapter lights up then it may be your battery. Notebook batteries are only good for 2-3 years. If you let them sit for a long time without a charge they may only last 1-2 years.

Vote for this solution if it helps.

there are different ways on how to check the problem you encounter regarding on your machine. kindly follow the procedures below:

- first take out the battery and plug in the power supply. if it works, suspected it's a faulty battery (if your machine is under warranty call the service center for the replacement of your battery
- if the machine won't turn on after taking out the battery and pugging in the power, take out the hard disk, plug in th power. if it works, suspected hard disk faulty. (replace hard disk)
- if machine still won't turn on after taking out the hard disk, take out the memory card. you will hear a beep sound after taking out memory card. if it works suspected memory card faulty. (replace memory card)
- if you didn't hear any sound after taking out the memory card, suspected motherboard faulty. (replace motherboard)
