i tried this trick
"*Take out the battery,
*Remove main supply,
*Hold power button down for 30 secs,
*Put only power supply in, do not put battery in
*Turn laptop on
*Put the battery in."
but all that happened was my screen flickered. i got excited thinking OMG this actually works, but it didn't. usually the word TOSHIBA pops up right away and i am stoked but this time it seems my laptop hates me and is done with me. How do i fix this pleaaase heeelppp
If you can open the lap's belly, give it a good compressed air cleaning to get the prairie dust out of it. Then apply the solution that you tried at first but old down the button for 60 seconds, just to ensure there is not static.
If you have a failure
If you can get to your Ram sticks, remove one stick at a time a start, just in case we have a memory problem. Make sure you always have a stick in the primary slot.
