Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A65-S1065 Notebook ?

The laptop won't boot/turn on, no noise

\015 This is a 3 y.o laptop, had a blue screen last week, didn't think much of it at the time since i rebooted and it worked fine. At one point yesterday, it went to sleep mode and turned itself off, since then I am unable to turn it on. The power lights are showing steady green, the battery is charged (I also took it off and tried without it putting the laptop straight to the electric outlet) made no difference, the light from the power button is not lighting up and nothing happens. No noise, not even trying to boot up, seems dead. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Try this:

Remove all connectors, media and devices (cables, USB devices, floppies, CDs etc)

1. Press AND hold the power button for 10 seconds. Light should go out.

2. Remove battery.

3. Plug in PSU (the AC power supply unit)

4. Press power button.

5. If the laptop starts, go all the way to desktop and run the laptop for 20 minutes or so.

6. Shut down and remove PSU.

7. Re-attach PSU and then insert battery.

8. start laptop. If it starts, go all the way to desktop and use laptop for an hour or so, to monitor the battery state, see if it is charging. If it is, go to step 9. If not, test PSU and battery, to see which needs replacement.

9. Otherwise open START MENU/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL/POWER SETTINGS.

10. Uncheck HIBERNATION in the tab that applies.

11. Set all spin down, sleep/suspend and monitor settings to "never".

12. Apply/OK and Close Power CP

13. Now leave laptop on, let the laptop sit, idle (or use it) for at least 3 hours.

14. Shut down and remove PSU, then restart.

15. If the laptop will not start, or did not show a full charge before shutting down, replace the battery.

16. Go back and set spin down/suspend and monitor power settings to DEFAULT, but do not use hibernation any more on a 3 year old laptop!
