Had the same problem after the electric went out due to a storm. When the electric came back on the computer wouldn't turn on. There was a light flashing on the Power Supply and on the mother board. I disconnected the large white Power connector from the motherboard, waited 15 seconds and plugged the connector back in, the light came on solid, press the on/off switch and the computer booted up and continued to work fine.

This is likely a power supply problem, the power supply probably has seen it's last, you can try and contact sony for a replacement or you can buy a PSU tester for about $25-35 and use that, another problem could be the motherboard going bad, or even slim chance of the power button going bad, I don't know how much you know about technology, but if you need further help just list a reply, along with how familiar you are with computers and how old the computer is and then also how much you are willing to spend

Power button


You could pop off the power button cover and test it that way. I put a flathead screwdriver in the crack around the button and popped it off when I had this problem. Please get back to me after you've tried this

My toshiba satellite 2545 cds will not power up. the power supply cord works I have checked that. but I push and/or hold the on/off button...nothing. ideas?


Try this for me;

Take out the power cord;

Take out the adapter;

Hold power button for 30 seconds

Plug power cord back in;

Put batter back in;

and try to power it up again..

If the adapter is working (and you are sure of this?) your battery may be dead.

Also; try using JUST the adapter to turn it on after you repeat the steps above without putting the battery in.

Good luck;

We will go from there if this doesn't help you!
