Hello, i have a toshiba a120 laptop. What happens is when i plug it in i get a green light (seems normal enough) and then i press the power button another green light comes up (again seems normal enough) and the hard drive starts to spin but i get no display on the screen and i checked to see if the CPU fan spins, it doesnt spin at all.
All i can hear is the hard drive start up nothing else seems to happen.
I have tested the following items in another laptop and they all appear to work:
Have i missed something because atm im stomped as to whats wrong
Try as (like raptor stated) plugging an external monitor and see what that does. nvm
I once had an issue with a user's laptop like this (with a toshetba) and it turned out to be something with the power. I didn't mess with that, but he ended up having someone else mod the power connections on the motherboard (did some type of bridge) and got it working again.
Sorry, i mean power issues on the laptop itself (not the block you connect to the outlet).
Wow replacement. leave it to toshetba xP
the gpu might not be stopping the voltage per se - but it can just stop the pc from powering on completely and doing anything. Unlike desktops - you can't exactly just remove the gpu, so trying to eliminate the gpu is not that easy.
