Hello everyone. I was wondering the net looking for advice and help trying to figure out what the problem could be on my laptop when i came across this site. I have a 2 year old Toshiba Satellite A135-S2326 that has decided it doesn't want to start up anymore. I know it has Vista Home Premiumon it but really can't say what service pack is on it.

The problem started while i was using Outlook. It froze up so I shut it down (held the power button till it shut off). When I turned it back it just wouldn't start again.

I read that this laptop has had problems with the pin in the power inlet plug, but I don'r know if that is my problem. I have tried to start it with and without the battery pack but no luck. With and without the battery pack the light for the disk drive always stays on and the HD light only comes on for a few seconds. I can hear the fans working but that's about it.
Anyone got any ideas? I have a lot of stuff for my college classes on the drive in it and am looking for a way to get it off.

All laptops have a problem with that
It's when the DC jack breaks away from the system board. It would be real loose where the plug attaches to the laptop
If you hear the fans turn on and stay running that would not be the problem

why won't my laptop work?
