Wont start or boot up

I have a toshiba satellite m35x-s161. when i turned on the power, the processor fan spins for exactly 6 seconds then it stops spinning. but there still a power. The LCD screen is blank and no power too. theres nothing wrong with the DC adapter since i checked it already in i ran the laptop using its battery. i dismantled the whole unit in removed the BIOS battery, HDD, RAM, DVD Drive, even the processor, but its still the same.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite M35X that won't start. After pressing the Power button, the fan runs briefly and quits. There is no display on the video and no lit indicator lights except the blue ring around the Power button. I connected the laptop to another monitor and received the same result. I suspect the processor has failed but would appreciate advice to diagnose and possibly fix.

I had the same problem and found that disconnecting the power lead and repositioning the ribbon cable from the on switch did the job after about 5 attempts

Sounds like there is a faulty connection between the power switch and the computer. Probably why its making a little noise.
Take in for repair and replace power button.

Check power management - clean dust from fan - full system virus/spyware/registry scan. Place external fan to help internal fan.

I am working on a Toshiba Satellite M35X-161. when i press the power button, it lights up, fans and hdd spin up. and then it kills the power after about 3 seconds. i have tried re-seating the RAM and...


Have you checked the DC jack where the power adapter plugs in. With the adapter plugged in, wiggle it and see if you get movement. Hold it upward and turn your unit on, if the power stays on, then it is the DC connector on the motherboard that is loose.

If your fan is working correctly, then check your ram. But experience has shown me that an issue like this is usually motherboard related.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Cannot boot. Power indicators lights up, fan swirls, but no activity


Call Toshiba immediately. Ask to ship the computer to the depot including the AC adapter, to determine if problem lies on the AC of th DC in jack. M35X has an extended warranty until 11-7-2007.

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,
