the battery. The power switch does not light up nor does anything happen.
with power or battery. battery removed and power nothing. I there a fuse or
reset button ? or what?
Thank You in Advance !! Russ
wo is me.
I had the same problem. I updated the Bios via Vista instead of using a disk. It said it was successfully updated and had to restart. When it restarted, the screen wonldn't come on and it wouldn't even post.
I removed an aftermarket memory module (which had been fine up until that point) and all was well.I then re-installed the memory module and it worked as if nothing had ever happened. :)
I can't say if it will work for you, but its certainly worth a try.

This is bad, very bad. It sounds like the bios flash glitched. The bios is the root system programing that allows the machine to function. If you had a bad flash, then the entire motherboard may be shot. You will definitely have to take it to a shop for a professional diagnosis, or send it to Toshiba service, especially if it's still under warranty, since it is a newer machine . If you send it to Toshiba, DO NOT tell them about the flash. If you do, then you're free game for them to charge you full price for the repair if it's still under warranty.
