This is an "older" laptop (Toshiba A505D-S6958) so I would probably not pay to get it repaired, I just want to make sure I am not missing a step that I could do myself.
It seems like it wants to boot up, the battery and power lights below the keyboard are on, the caps light blinks, I can feel the fan blowing but I hear no beeps at all. The power light stays on but the volume controls above the keyboard do not light up. Also, aside from the initial blink, the caps light will not come on when pressing the caps lock key. If a CD is in when I hit the power button, the cd definitely spins so that is getting power.
I tried removing the battery and discharging, removing the memory, trying one chip at a time, tried with just adapter and just with battery.
Is there anything else I can try? HD appears to be fine - hooked that up to an enclosure and got some files off it.
PS - I tried to disassemble a laptop once with mixed results, so I am willing to do some work on it bit not down to barebones.
