Laptop Questions? Ask a Laptop Technician for Answers ASAP!
Hello and thank you for your question. I look forward to assisting you today. When you try to power it on are you holding down the power button for several seconds?
Okay, are you powering up while it is plugged into the power adapter or just on battery?
Okay thank you. Can you remove the battery from your laptop? If so, unplug it first, remove the battery, then plug it back in and try to power it up.
Okay, remove all power, press and hold the power button down for about 30 seconds then plug it back in and try again.
Okay give me a minute please.
When the LED blinks is it steady?
From what I have been able to find, the blink code indicates insufficient power supplied to the laptop. The power supply should still be under warranty so you should check with either the retailer you purchased it from or directly from Toshiba.
If it has failed, then no. The charger is also the power supply. It provides power to the laptop as well as charging the battery which explains why you can't power it up just on the battery alone.
