Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 Notebook

Open Question

M35X-S349 no video no post

This laptop started freezing and we thought it may be hardware problem. Tested memory and hard drive and both passed. Tried to restore and gave blue screen error. Turned off and tried to turn on.

Now I do not get any video. No post. Turns on, all lights on, fan spins for few seconds but never any video. Seems like alot of people have same issue but no solution. It IS NOT a powerjack problem. Jack not loose and lights stay on when plugged in. Please help.

This is what done so far:
Tried to remove battery and reset power settings
Tried without battery, just ac, just battery.
Tried with single memory chip(has two) in each slot, changed them up.
Used compressed air to blow out fan.
Checked connection to board with LCD. Reseated and snug.
Pulled hard drive and formatted.

Strange. Was working fine(except for freezing) before tried to restore.
Please help.

If your Dell diagnostics shows no fault on the hardware (hdd, memory, chipset, videocard, etc.) but still same issue occurs, I recommend doing another test using a different utility. Try using Hiren's Boot CD that can be found here and try running the S&M Stress Test 1.9.1 and Video Memory Stress Test 1.7.116. If your computer hangs while doing the stress tests, the video card or CPU might be failing already.

Good Luck.

when the system first turns on, tap F12- and select restore hard drive- that loads the factory image for the system. If that does not work, the issue is likely a hardware problem (usually memory!) If the system is in warranty, contact Dell technical support if the restoral image does not work.

This is a tough one.

My first thought is that if you reformat your laptop and it crashes, sounds like a hardware (most common: memory or hard drive) problem.

But, you've tested / replaced the memory and the hard drive. Be certain that you have the correct memory for this laptop. Also, run hardware diagnostics.

When you reformat, don't add anything. Just the operating system. Boot it and test for awhile to see if the operating system is stable. Then, add software one at a time and test each time. It may be a long process, but it's possible that your software may be infecting your system.

Hope this helps.

HP laptop will not recover or restore! HP

Run a system restore back to factory default setting.

Start system and hold down the f11 key till it rings a bell.

This will start the restore program.

Follow the system prompt. But remember to backup your documents and files.

Good luck.

After using Darik's boot and nuke (DBAN) your hard drive will be wiped clean with little chance of recovery. This also depends on how many passes you used for the disk wipe. More passes = less chance of recovery.

Restore from backup
You can restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup
section) from hard disk, CD or DVD.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 Select the desired restore action and follow the onscreen instructions to
complete the restore process.

Acer apire 3000 keeps freezing!

The first, best thing to do is to back up your data and do a system restore. Acer's have the restore function usually built into their acer system management software.

Restoring the computer will solve most issues. If you keep having issues after the restore you probably have a hardware error like a bad hard drive or bad memory.

Be sure to back up any important data as the restore will erase everything from the hard drive and set it back to the way it came from the factory

Good luck!
