Hi there, he we go, hope someone can help...

My Toshiba Satellite Pro c650 has just gone dead and will not start.

It has momentarily started twice but only got 30 seconds into the start up cycle and then the screen goes dead.

Each time it is running off the Toshiba power adapter. I've tried it of the battery only and the same happens, even with the battery out and the power on only, the same happens.

In all incidences, the green light at the front edge of the laptop is on, but never the orange battery charger light.

Each time you try to start it up now the screen flashes from black to white for a split second before going black again.

My uneducated guess is that it could either be the adapter/lead or the laptop battery.

If anyone can help shed light on the problem, I'd very much appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,

Mark

Dear Mark,

This my last message before I sign out for the day.

What were you doing or did before the issue occured ? Is this just out of the blue ?

How old is your lappy ?

Looks like a serious problem.

Will it start in safe mode, tapping F8 ?

Have you tried to:

1. Remove the battery
2. Remove the cable
3. Hold the power button for 58 seconds
4. Plug the cable and boot.

Good luck

P.S. There has been several similar issues with Toshiba

Normal web browsing, Skype, and it had never happened before.

No, cannot get to a desktop state

Have you tried to:

1. Remove the battery - Yes

Do you think the harddrive and contents will be retrievable?

Hello Mark

This looks like a motherboard issue so a technician should be able to save your data to another disk.

Good luck
