Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook ?

My toshiba A205-s5851 won't boot and the display won't come on.

\015 I have tried rebooting from the ms vista recovery iso disc. I have tried\015\012powering up and pressing F2 to get into the BIOS. I have even tried the ms vista update disc, all with no success. The power light comes on when you power up and you can see the HD light come on momentarily and you can hear it accessing the CD for about 10 - 15 seconds. Then\015\012the unit just sits with nothing else happening.\015\012Please help! Any ideas?\015

Answers :

This sounds like a hardware problem.  Some devices like CD drives if not seated properly will cause the computer to hang.  Also, I would disconnect all external devices (USB, Firewire, COM Ports, etc.) and then try to power off the machine followed by a cold boot.  Another problem would be RAM, it might not be seated properly.  Try removing it and re-seating it.
