Laptop problems

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys my cousin has dropped her Toshiba laptop and now it will not come on, no lights come on while on charge. Absolutely nothing. First impressions? Could something just be loose or has something broke?

My first assumption would be broken motherboard. I would open it up though it could just be that the power input has been knocked off and you may be able to solder it back on (if there was a charge on the battery and it still wont power on it's not the power input).

Oh man. Could be a number of things in a wide range from a busted power switch, to a loosened wire, to a broken screen, to a bad board.

Dropping a Laptop and it not turning on can be a sign of a lot of different things, only REAL way to diagnose it would be to open it up. But I'm pretty sure opening a Laptop voids its warranty.

Obviously it's broken and your cousin would be better off RMAing it/replacing it if she still hopefully has warranty.

Thanks for the replies. If it isn't under warranty ill open it up to see what I can find
