Tosibha qosmio f15 av201 does not turn on when power button pressed

My toshiba qosmio f15-av201 laptop won't turn on when the power button is pushed, though the ac adapter and battery lights are both on.The power button light, however, is not lit. The laptop was recently open (disassembled) to clean fans, which caused a disturbing loud noise. Everything seems to be adequately connected. Additionally,there is no sign whatsoever that shows the computer attempting to start up, nt even a noise. Consequently, I have no idea what to do from here.

I would greatly appreciate your help.

I am no whizz, but i think, just THINK maybe you should get some friend or relative to check the wiring to the fan and the power button, maybe when cleaning the fan, the wires were losen, as the button is millimeters away from the fan.

i hope it might help, if not i already said, i'm no whizz

My qosmio f15 av201 no sound, unable to setuo soundmax


Have you tried downloading the most recent driver from the Toshiba support site? The site can be found here: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp Select your laptop's make and model, and look for the category "Driver" and "Sound". There should be a link to download the ADI WDM Audio Driver. Install that driver on your system and reboot.

Toshiba QOSMIO F15-AV201 PC Notebook that keeps on shutting down. The notebook will not fire up again after it has shut down or frozen. I just look at a flashing line in the top left corner. Any advice?


Hi

Thank you for your query

Please can you try the following

Remove battery
Remove wall charger
Press and hold the power button down on the laptop fro 30 seconds
Plug in wall charger and power up the laptop
After approx 5 minutes slot in the battery and see if the issue occurs again

If it does then from the description it would seem the laptop is overheating, so plase can you ensure there is plenty of ventalltion around the laptop and if it still continues you will need to book laptop into a reputable PC shop to swa out the heatsink

Regards

Toshiba Qosmio F15-AV201 will not turn on


Remove the battery. Plug in the power adapter. If you do not see a light turn on the front of the machine, you have one of two problems. A bad AC adapter, or the pin inside the computer has come loose. Both of the issues are very common. If you go to a local computer shop, im sure they would test that for free. Pin replacement usually runs around $100 in my neck of the woods. A "GOOD" AC adapter can cost as little as 25 bucks on ebay to 150 from Toshiba. Please contact me and let me know what you decided to do. Email ThinkingComputers@yahoo.com

Power LED Flashing Yellow on Qosmio laptop F15


This flashing LED means only one thing, and it is quite harmless:

Your laptop is either "asleep" (suspended) or in "hibernation" mode.It does this if left for a long time with no activity/input from you. You must simply "wake the laptop up" now:

Look for a symbol on keyboard for "sleeping" (like a half moon with zzzz) and press that key WITH whatever color coded key matches the symbol color (usually "FN" key). If there is no suchkey, press the space bar and hold it down a few seconds.

Then wait. Can take 60 seconds to "wake up" on slower processors.

If this does not work, press AND hold the POWER button for 10 seconds. Then wait 60 seconds and press power key again, briefly, to start laptop normally.

Pressing and holding the power button 6-10 seconds forces a complete system shutdown.

If this happens often, something may be wrong with APM or ACPI settings/driver. You can go to start menu/settings/control panels/power management and adjust settings (or disable sleep/suspend and hibernation if all else fails to resolve situation)

good luck.
