Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook ?

Toshiba Satellite a-100 can't power up

\015 My Toshiba has functioned flawlessly for three years but now it has stopped working. Problem is when I try to start nothing happens except the battery led flashes some times. I tested the power cable with a multimeter and it reads 15.3 v. I even checked the contacts for the battery and it reads 3,3v. I`m a bit stumped here is this a motherboard problem or?...\015

Answers :

The RAM could be faulty.
Try and get the RAM tested in another laptop or at your friendly computer store.
Also can you hear the hard disk spinning.
Maybe it is booting up but you can't see anything on the screen, there might be a slight image on the screen, look at it at an acute angle.
Connect an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor and then the laptop, if you see a normal image the the problem is the backlight on the LCD screen.
Get back to me if this is the case.

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
