Hi all,

As the title says my satellite l450d has power going in when I press the power button. The green power light on the front of the laptop comes on, I can also hear a cooling fan starting up. Also the light indicator on the side for the dvd drive flashes on and off to begin with .All this happens within 4-5 seconds of me pressing the power button on, then you hear a click from and the laptop goes dead. This happens regardless if the battery is in or out.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

For me it sounds like a hardware malfunction…

I found this interesting article on Toshiba site:
Which steps should be followed if your Toshiba notebook doesn't start?

If it doesn’t work you need help from an authorized service provider I think. The guys have to check the exact reason and can replace all hardware parts because they can order them from Toshiba directly.

Did you already contact the guys?
