I did a hard drive clean up on my toshiba statelite L755 for the first time. I was not having any real problems, I just wanted to make it run even faster. But now the computer after the process was done, wont turn on. Can you help me to know what I need to do to make it come back?

Michelle : Hi, This is Michelle and i will be assisting you
Michelle : please let me know that when you turn on laptop do you get the initial toshiba logo or not even that
Michelle : turn off laptop. take battery out as well as unplug the power cord to ensure that no power source is connected to the computer.hold and press the power button of the laptop for 5-6 seconds.then turn on the laptop on with both battery and adapter plugged in and see if it makes any difference.,
Customer: Nothing at all is happening.
Customer: Hello??
Michelle : any lights on laptop
Michelle : like battery or hard drive light
Michelle : do they come on or not
Customer: There was an orange flicker at the front of the laptop, but than it went away

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
