Apr 29, 2018
i have a toshiba and the screen wont turn on. i dont hear the power supply kick in nor the cd driv or hard drive. i found it in my dads friends garage under some stuff and thought it would be cool to gety it running. it powers of after a while though.. any ideas?
i got no money so i gant do anything
If it does nothing when you turn it on, could be a dead motherboard. Maybe power supply is bad. Try it without the battery in the system, try replacing the CMOS battery with a new one.
