Hey guys. I recently had a problem with my laptop . It has not been able to turn on or charge. The leds in the front are on when the ac adapter is plugged in but when the power button is pressed nothing happens except The CPU part of the motherboard heats up when the laptop is plugged in. I'm assuming the problem could be the motherboard or the processor. Toshiba satellite l50t-b i7 8gb ram
 
Are you sure that nothing turns on? Because if the motherboard is going and the lights turn on, it could be the display only and not the whole device.

Try this...

1. Turn the laptop off (not sleep or hibernate but off).
2. Connect an external monitor to the laptop.
3. Turn on the external monitor.
4. Turn on the laptop.

NOTE: You may have to press an "external monitor" button. Could be the f4 button or a button with two monitors on it, for the external monitor to work.

If you can see fine on the external monitor, then your attached display, or the ribbon cable that connects it, are your problem.

If you can't see on the external monitor at all, or the problem occurs on the external monitor as well, then it is probably the graphics card/GPU that is the problem, which may require the motherboard be replaced.
