Toshiba Equium A300 13X powering on, but nothing happening!
Posted on 2010-11-17
I have a really annoying problem with this Toshiba.
It was dropped in recently to our repair shop as not booting.
The machine was not turning on at all, after detailed diagnosis, the motherboard appeared to be faulty.
I replaced it with a second hand one and the power light comes on when I press the power button, and the fan spins for about 10 secs, but nothing on screen or any sign of activity.. then I purchased a brand new one from toshiba directly and the same!
I have reseated EVERYTHING, replaced ram, replaced RTC battery connected external monitor, cpu, e.t.c, tested power from charger to motherboard (all ok).. STILL NOTHING!
Any ideas guys? im totally out of them and at my wits end!
