Hi guys, got a problem with my satellite pro 440 cdx/cdt which im hoping yous can help me with
When I press the power button the ON light comes on but the fan doesn't spin and nothing comes up on the screen. The hard drive doesnt seem to spin up either. The lights for power and the battery come on however (even before I press the power button).
I have tried discharging the machine by pressing the power button for a few mins with both the acadaptor and battery pulled out and also tried plugging in a external monitor in case the built in screen is dead.
When the hdd is removed am I still supposed to be able to see the Toshiba logo on screen and get into the bios?
Could a dead bios/rtc battery prevent it from booting?
The fan dont switch on but I dont know if its dead or disconnected because the latop has been opened before not by me.
Is the laptop supposed make any noises when it switches on like a beep cause mine never beep even with the volume rocker on maximum
Does anyone have the operating manual for this laptop (not the service manual). What button am I supposed to be pressing to get into the bios? the internet is telling me to press everything from esc to f4
Unforunately I dont have another laptop that has the same small ide connector to test the hard drive.
