Im looking for the answer of where the damage might be, the toshiba portege 3110ct was given to me as a donation since i have a donations site since im studying software engineering in mexico. I hope i can get this machine running so that i can give it back to the donor and just charge him for the repair, but the problem is that i dont know where the problem might be. Today i tested the plug that comes after the transformer and it is throwing 15v dc as it should be so the main source is not the problem. Does any one know if the computer has a fuse on board that might have been burned by a spike. Any help will be highly appreciated. Carlos amaya aguirre.
