Don't pay attention to your uncle. I had the same problem. Blue ring, power lights on. Sometimes the laptop would come up after a few minutes and then would freeze. It is a power problem. The AC jack may be broken and, most likely, you need to get the MAX1632A power controller (a 40-48 pin black IC next to the AC jack) resoldered too (get someone qualified to do it, with the right soldering station for surface mount work).

(1) flip the Notebook/Laptop PC over - see Fig.1 below
(2) find the memory cover - it really easy to find in this photo.


Fig.1 Toshiba M35X bottom view - the memory cover is seen at center left and secured by a single screw.

(3) remove the (1) screw securing the memory cover.


Fig. 2 Toshiba M35X laptop shown with memory cover removed and HDD (Hard Disk Drive) removed, and with the HDD cover flipped up.
The RAM (SO-DIMM boards) are visible at center left.
The HDD cover is seen at the bottom of the photo.

(4) Using proper anti-static/static control techniques, clip alligator clip or your anti-static wrist strap to a frame ground of the laptop at an I/O connector or frame ground under the HDD cover.
(5) carefully remove (2) old 256 MB SO-DIMM DDR333 memory modules.
Store old memory boards in the anti-static plastic baggie in which the new memory boards were shipped.
(6) install (2) new 1GB SO-DIMM DDR333 boards, for total of 2GB of system RAM.
(7) reassemble system, and boot OS (operating system).
The laptop's ROM BIOS will auto-detect the new RAM and begin a standard POST (Power-On Self Test).
(8) If OS is MSWindows, it will also auto-detect the new memory, and allocate it to application software.

The technology of the Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 memory module is called
DDR333, meaning DDR (Double Data Rate) SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic RAM), at a memory bus speed of 333 MHz.
The Form Factor of the DDR memory card is SO-DIMM, which stands for Small Outline DIMM (Dual In-line Memory Module) (see photo).
Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR_SDRAM
Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SO-DIMM


Fig.3 Each 1GB SO-DIMM DDR333 memory module will look like this one.
The Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 supports a maximum of two SO-DIMM memory modules.

Each memory module can hold (a) 256MB, (b) 512MB, or (c) 1GB,
in the SO-DIMM Form Factor compatible with the Toshiba M35X-S349 Notebook PC.

If screen is totally off (black because of it's off) - screen is dead. If it's black, but you see it's working - could be hard drive or memory fail.

Toshiba... | Answered on Mar 14, 2011

You just need to turn it upside down and remove the single door. Here are some pictures, step 2 is the hard drive removal.

From your description they replaced the inverter board to fix the problem. When you had it repaired was the right side dark when you got it back? because if it was they are responsible for making right. If the problem was fixed, it still could be the inverter board or a bad back light that is going, if it is the back light most technicians will not attempt this repair because you have get in behind screen which is not meant to be taken apart. "a very tricky repair that requires solder work" They will usually opt to replace the complete LCD display to correct the problem.

if it will run an external screen then get it running and back it up first.

then once your data is safe you open it up and look for a loose connector or some other broken part.

Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

this is a virus/malware issue. It's best to just reinstall the OS and all the software. You may try to hunt it down with some antivirus/antispyware apps as I did, but that's only the long way arround, as the virus makes enough damage to your system that the only solution is reinstall. I wasted a couple of days trying to solve the issue and gave up on it and just reinstalled everything. Hope this helps
