Does the video ever appear? I have the same model as you, and it started behaving kind of like you describe--when I power it on, I can hear the hard drive spin up, but there's no video--until it gets around to starting Windows. In other words, the Qosmio splash screen and whatever else used to display prior to Windows launching no longer does. Is this what's going on with yours, or do you not get video no matter how long you wait? --Sarah

    Try "torching" your on-board GPU. It's a quick fix for several models of HP/Compaq. A bit of background; The fan vents become clogged with dust. The dust begins to inhibit the flow of air through the heatsink system. GPU heats up, begins to cold-solder, and the GPU connections are lost. Reheating and adding a bit of pressure to the GPU "re-solders" it, connection restored, all is right with the world.

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.

My laptop wont turn on

When you boot up the Toshiba and it appears to boot up and the hard disk LED light flashes but you get a black screen then the problem is a back-light fault. This is caused by a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

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 [email protected]

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

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

VGA card for Qosmio F15

Yeah, laptops don't have a seperate video card like a desktop.But it may not be the vidieo chip.It might just be an inverter problem,which is relatively simple and inexpensive.I can't be sure unless I see it . shops are notorius for trying to sell people new motherboards.Get a second opinion.
