Toshiba Satellite A105 won't boot

  1. I was using my laptop and it hung up with IE7 running during Windows update. I had to do a power button forced shutdown. Now BIOS won't post, it won't boot either. The power light comes on, the hard drive light comes on for about 2 seconds then nothing but a black screen. I removed the memory, swapped them around, tried it with only one chip in, cleaned the memory chips and slots still nothing.

    Thanks for the update :grinthumb
    That thread has nearly hit 10,000 views, but because it's closed I don't know how many users it helps :(
    So feedback is always welcomed :)

    Since it is so helpful, should it not be made a sticky?

    Hmm

    It's already in the Guides and Tutorials forum
    But you know what? I've never thought of a sticky :rolleyes:

    I'm not sure if our Admin here wants multiple stickies (as there are already some there)
    But I do agree that it should be

    ... Not sure what to do. ... I'll wait until it reaches 10,000 on the dot and then approach Admin here

    Thanks for the suggestion :grinthumb
    If you had enough posts, I'd ask you to PM him and ask him, oh well, I'll wait :)

    Edit:

    I PMed the Administrator on this, after looking more closer at your suggestion
    We will wait and see the outcome :grinthumb
