Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A45-S120 Notebook ?

When powering on the A45 laptop, green power lite goes to a flashing yellow. The laptop itself will not power up.


Answers :

Take out the battery and only hook up the ac adaptor and see if you get video that way.

If not then reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Make sure you try turning on the laptop after each time you reseat the memory.

If your still not getting video after that then take out the hard drive and also take out the dvd drive and if your still not getting video after that then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

When the power button is pressed it powers up, all the status lights flash on once and then the hard drive status light will flash intermittently approximately every 2 seconds and a audible pop is heard from the speakers. In the 2 second gap the CD drive light will flash as if trying to spool up. This will continue until the power button is again depressed to turn the machine of. It will now not boot at all.
