Laptop won't turn on, no lights, no fans.
I have a Toshiba Satellite (about 2 years old) and for the life of me, I can't figure out what' s going on.
Here's what I do know:
I used a multimeter to test the voltage of the power port on the connector that plugs into the motherboard. I'm getting 19volts which is what it's supposed to be at.
I have replaced the bios battery - nothing
I have held down the power for 60 seconds with it unplugged - nothing
I've tried running on a/c power only - nothing
Possibly the most confusing thing - I was fiddling with the network adapter (the internal pci one - not the usb kind) because after tearing it apart and putting it back together so many times I was trying literally everything - I switched out the network card. (I realize what little sense this makes) but it turned on. For only about 15-20 seconds but it turned on. 3 times. Then died before it ever fully loaded windows.
I assume there is something on the motherboard around the network card area that I touched that made this happen. But I can't for the life of me figure out what. It has been dead as a doornail for months. And something happened when I touched and swapped out the network card.
