My toshiba P30 won't boot at all. The power light goes on, fan works, dvd work fine, harddrive doesn't spin though. Total black screen. I tried an external monitor, same result. The harddrive LED doesn't flicker as it does usually when the harddrive is accessed. This problem started last night.
Here's more info... Few months ago, my computer was overheating, I opened it up and cleaned the heatsink, it was badly cluged. I put it back together, but I still had a little problem with the screen where most of the times it's normal, but sometimes you get different coloring as if some filter was applied. Anyway, as I was playing around with it to figure out the problem, I figured if I touch or apply some pressure onto the video connector on the motherboard, it works again. Last night, I was doing that and then screen became distorted then eventually it just shot off... Initially I thought it's the screen. I tried it with an external monitor as I mentioned, but that didn't work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
