Heres the fix:

This requires access to the cpu and heatsink, remove the keyboard and palmrest to access the motherboard, I think you have to remove the screen too. Remove the heatsink and cpu. Reseat the cpu, heres the kicker, press firmly on the center of the cpu while turning the locking screw. Pressing the cpu hard, allows the locking mechinism to get a good bite. Turn the locking screw hard into the end of the turn. Hook up the heatsink and set it back on top of the cpu. Press down on the heatsink over the cpu, fairly strong pressure.

Now test the motherboard, use just cpu, heatsink, memory, power button board and cable and external monitor, you can use your screen instead by just hooking up the cable to motherboard, leave the screen laying flat on the table. Now push the power button with one hand and the other is still applying pressure to the heatsink, no you dont need to screw it down yet. Keep reseating the cpu with varying degrees of pressure if you dont get it go the first time.
The trick will be to get it all assembled with the same results.
There seems to be a problem with the cpu seating correctly, it must come loose and the laptops exhibit the symtoms of no video. It might even be neccessary to insert a wafer thin piece of copper or something in between the cpu and heatsink if the heatsink doesnt apply enough pressure to cpu to keep it seated deep enough to run the computer.

Toshiba satellite m35x-s111 will not power up


there was a massive recall on these laptops years ago entailing that the mother board be replaced. unfortunately that is gone and passed. this is a problem with every m35x and most honest repair facilities shy away from those repairs due to the likelihood of the machine failing again.

Power on but no screen oor hard disk motion


Hello there:
i would suggest using a spare monitor and connect the cord that would normally go into a computer and connect it to the laptop and then plug in the power cord for the monitor and turn on the computer if this works and everything is ok then you know that the laptop screen may be faulty or there may be a loose connection somewhere ok?
best regards michael

My M35X-S111 keeps shutting down


More than likely it is overheating you can buy a can of compressed air and blow it out if you dont have a compressor that should be done at least every 6 months

No power on


I believe that the syptoms you are experiencing include the power button lighting up during start up and the fan cycling for 5 seconds, but no other activity. There may or may not be a series of audible "beeps". A CD will come up to speed, but will not load. I have had this happen three times with my M35X-S111 due to it not being able to recognize the RAM. The first two times, I re-seated the RAM and it successfully booted. The third time, I reseated the RAM 50+ times with it only successfully booting once. The slot that holds the RAM cards does make a good electrical contact with the cards. Since the RAM holder is integral to a card, you cannot replace it with a "generic" holder, instead, you have to replace the entire card. I discarded my Toshiba after that third failure.

Check to see if your Display is bad or Video is bad..
To Do This....
Plug an External Monitor into the laptop serial port..Boot the laptop and use the function key plus F5 to boot to external screen... If you see your PC running on the external screen it is a Video card/chip problem.....

Do your lights run ..the Power Light/Battery light/ hard drive light??? Do you hear the hard drive spinning??

Hi, Toshiba extended the warranty of the M35 till Nov. of this year for this same problem. If you just contact Toshiba support, they'll rplace the board no charge. I've had a few repaired. They only take a few days. Good luck,
