Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M35X-S349 Notebook ?

Toshiba laptop will not turn on, screen is completely black

\015 I was surfing on the internet when the screen went black. I manually restart it, and nothing happens, the screen is just blank and there's no whirling of the fan like it usually is. So I restart it again(the ac adaptor is plugged in at this point into a surge protector), and the logo comes on and the fans so I'm relieved. I leave it on to go to the grocery store, and when I come back the screen is black again. The 3 lights are still on, so I just unplug the adaptor to see if anything changes, but the power button is still lighted, so I start the restart processes. Nothing worked so my uncle opens up the laptop, and says that the motherboard is fried because the dvd rom drive won't eject and there are no sounds coming from the laptop, not even the fan even if the power light is on. I kind of want a second opinion before I go off and buy a new laptop, as I'm a poor college student. Did I electrically short circuit it or something?\015

Answers :

Don't pay attention to your uncle. I had the same problem. Blue ring, power lights on. Sometimes the laptop would come up after a few minutes and then would freeze. It is a power problem. The AC jack may be broken and, most likely, you need to get the MAX1632A power controller (a 40-48 pin black IC next to the AC jack) resoldered too (get someone qualified to do it, with the right soldering station for surface mount work).
