Hi my toshiba laptop was dead, the powerlight came on, the hard-disk was spinning but the screen remained blank. I tried everthing , stripping it completely, trying a new ram and narrowed the problem to the motherboard or the cpu. i.e I can conclude that the problem is with the the mobo or the cpu. This was a month ago. Today I switched on again and voila! it worked, the bios loaded! I had removed the hard-disk, so switched it off, attached the HD and started it up again.. this time it didn't work. And hasn't since. I have again stripped it down , but it still doesn't work. CAn anyone plzzzzz exlplain what is going here?? I mean it started , that means nothings fried, right?? Thanks btw the fan spins for exactly 5 seconds before turning off.
