Hi Guys! 

 

 I'm Captain Lasky and i really need your help  :spoton:

 

I have a notebook Toshiba A305 and "it won't turn on"

 

It's just a normal day while i'm using my notebook it shut down unexpectedly and the worst part is it won't turn on! 

 

After a few minutes it turned on but after a few seconds from the bootime " it turned off " on its self without anything on the screen just black.

 

 

 

Please help me and thank you!

:welcome:   Captain Lasky

 

Can you at any time hear the notebook cooling fan working.

 

When if ever was the notebook last cleaned out of heat trapping dust.

 

Have you tried removing and then reseating the Ram.

 

Do you always have both the battery and AC adapter connected.

 

Have you tried using battery power only and vice versa removing the battery and using only the AC adapter, if so what was the outcome in both instances please.

 

NB: Your topic was moved here as it is more appropriate than being on the All Other Operating Systems forum and that may be why you have waited for a reply  ;)

 Hi phillpower2!  :D

 

Thank you for responding ^_^ and also thank you for moving my topic at the right place.

 

- Well i cannot here my cooling fan and i see that it's not moving

 

- I cleaned up my notebook last week ( inside & outside )

 

- I remove and reseated the RAM still nothing happens

 

- I always have the battery and AC adapter

 

 - I tried using battery only and using only the AC adapter still nothing happens  :smashcomp:

 

 

The only thing that is working is the disk drive, screen got nothing just pitch black

 

I really appreciate your help & kindness

Hoping that you can still help me

 

 Thank you again and more power   :wave:

Hello Captain Lasky

 

Well i cannot here my cooling fan and i see that it's not moving

 

 

When you cannot hear the cooling fan running at any time it most often suggests that the fan has failed electrically, mechanically or the power connection has become detached from the MB, you have said in your reply #3 that you can see that the fan is not moving, have you checked that the small electrical connection from the fan is securely in place, if it is then it suggests that the fan has failed and needs to be replaced**.

 

** If the fan has failed you should not turn on the notebook until the fan has been replaced with a known working one, the MBs thermal sensor is shutting the computer down to protect the CPU and video chip from frying.

 

The one other thing that could prevent the fan from working is it being turned off in the BIOS, is this at all possible.

 

You are welcome btw  :)

Before you replace the cooling fan either have a tech test it or check it out yourself by following the guide here, this in case it is not the fan itself that has failed.

 

You are most welcome btw  :)
