Computer doesn't boot but runs
to start it off its a 2003 toshiba satellite thats almost constantly in the shop. and i do know that this kind tends to overheat but i dont think this was the problem this time.
when the problem first came up i tryed starting it in early summer 2005. it was hooked up into a car adapter from ac into dc. i started the laptop and booted but a few seconds later just died.
that hard drive was just fixed a month or so earlier so im not sure if that is the problem.
right now you push the power button and it turns on. but it doesnt boot. and doesnt give any screen at all just black. i plugged it into an external monitor to see if it was just the screen but the external showed black also.
i hear it start like the fans and things. but then they just stop.
if anyone has any idea about this at all it is very appreciated.
