hi I am Hoping some one here can shed some light on this. I have a toshiba satellite pro laptop but it's refusing to turn on. it was working fine 2 days ago and was last shutdown as normal. With the AC power supply plugged into the laptop the DC-in…
I'm having the same issue, my Toshiba Satellite doesn't turn on after shut it down. If I unplug the power source it is turn on, I'm not sure what can be the problem.
Any suggestion will be appreciate. Thanks
People have a nasty problem with sitting there laptops on their laps, Beds or sofa's, this blocks the fans underneath from cooling down the processor which eventually over heats and shuts down the machine, with persistent use in this way the processor becomes damaged and will no longer boot up the machine.
globalss: Have you tried using another adaptor? - remember to use one that as the same voltage as the one that came with your machine.
The other thing you can try is to remove the ram from the machine and try and turn it on without them - if it comes on, turn it off again and place your ram sticks in one by one, this will determine whether you have faulty ram or not.
From what i am hearing from the posts above it sounds like it could be a power problem either with the dc jack on the machine or your power adaptors.
Good Luck Everyone - I know Toshiba's have dodgy main boards.
Take your laptop apart and find the chip with a white and a black wire connected to the chip and unscrew it and push it in as far as it will go and screw it back in that worked for my 2 toshiba laptops

Toshiba Pro A100 problem With fan not running.
The problem has now been solved. The problem was caused by an upgrade of Zone Alarm which has now included antivirus and spywear . This was in conflict with Avast that was installed on my comp. The removal of Avast solved the problem. The fan dos's not run all the time this is normal and only runs when required to cool the processor.This is to conserve the battrey.
Hope this helps other people
I have the same problem and I tried all the tip suggested on here and it still did not work. I mess around for a while and It power up and this is what i did. un plug all power , remove battery from laptop. hold down power button for few second. Plug the power cable in first, wait few second for green light come on, plug in the battery and wait for it to recognize the battery and start charging it, wait for few second then hit the power button to turn it on. That is what I did, your luck may vary. Good luck
Toshiba Satellite P25-S: No lights. No nothing.
Yesterday it shut down cold in middle of work. No lights. No nothing. I unplugged and plugged back in but noticed that sometimes the power light would flicker for split second. Ultimately, nothing. I've not quite seen this question in my scan of this forum. If laptop is revivable, please provide suggestions.
I have a Toshiba Sattelite Pro 660, when I swith it on I had a black screen with only the Toshiba on screen. I couldn't start the Recovery Mode it frooze too. After checking in on the Boot Menue to change to boot from CD it came up with this error: Operating System not found. I've tried a well established Boot disc, but even that freezes before the Repair tool comes on. Any ideas?
