Hello:
I bought My Wife the ( Toshiba Satellite P505D-S8935 ). It is only 13 Months Old. And will not turn on. When You Push the Power Button, Nothing Happens. The Power Button Lights Up and the Num Lock Flicks on 1 time and goes Out, It sounds Like the Cd Drive starts and then stops, and that's it. Nothing else. I have a p305 so I took Her hard drive and put it in Mine and it works. So Hard drive is not the Problem. I plugged My Power Cord and it had no change.
Any Idea`s Out there.
Thanks Jim

i'm guess'n you're not from oregon city huh? an thats a bummer bout your other laptop possibly being on its way out! i've always had really good luck with toshiba. i even used to work for them 10 years ago. i'm probably going to just buy a mac since i've been wanting one to run final cut on. still p**ses me off though that the toshiba only lasted a year! FAIL!!!

Jim, the first problem you described with your wife's laptop indicates power failure or a short. I know I read a good guide somewhere about suggestions but I forget where, I'll have to hunt down and re=post it when I find it.

Now the second problem, if you're getting a blue screen then the good thing is that it is easier to fix. When you get the Blues Screen of Death again be sure to write down the code it gives, since this is the error that is probably causing the BSOD in the first place, then it'll be a lot easier on how to proceed.

Hello:
and thanks for the reply. On My Wifes the Satilite word that use to Light does not. the Only thing that has Power is the dvd and the on off switch. KNow to Mine the BSOD It said something about Power Failure. and then rebooted. It has not done it today. Knock on Wood.... But I will try to write down what is says. thanks again for the reply.

i have the same model and found this thread searching google after experiancing the same problem
i did a restart and it never came back. the only activity i get is the power button lights up, the caplock flashes and a slight whir that sounds like the hardrive for a second then , nothing.
i removed all usb and power cables,
i closed the laptop and let it sit for a few minutes, it has now restarted normally.

sorry to hear Jim, i never experianced the BSoD, just the one time it wouldn't boot back on as decribed in the OP. i am running windows 7. have you tried starting the machine that has the blue screen in safe mode? blue sceens are often a driver related issue. also on your wifes laptop, have you tried swapping the battery?
sorry i couldn't be of more help

Jim Crowe,

Since you said they were the same model, and you tried swapping the AC power adapters, I assume you have also tried switching the battery of your and your wife's notebooks and compared the resulting symptoms for any changes?

Also, there is a freeware utility called "bluescreenview" that helps ID what the BSOD failures are, and helps ID any patterns and associated events/files. It requires of course that your computer options be set so that the computer does NOT automatically restart on failure. Otherwise, it won't post the error information into a log file.
