I got my hands on 5 Toshiba Satellite 4070 or 4090CDT or so.
They all appear to be dead. I opened all of them and they are very bad subjects to batteries leaking.
I cleaned all and checked the battery leak didn't touch the motherboard, and that the case, they are safe (well, it seems visually at last).
But still no one from this bunch of 5 are starting good. I had a 6th one some months ago and it is working fine. When i press the power button on the 5 dead, the power led goes on, and 4 on 5 show signs of cpu heating (=working) and sometimes disk spinning. Still, nothing boots, nothing on screen or vga out.
What is going on ? i have several and tester power chargers so it is not their fault.
If anyone has any idea about it, i will be glad to save a part of them at least, or else i will be forced to sell every working parts apart...
