I have a Toshiba Satellite P205 17.3" laptop. It was running Windows Vista.
The other day I pushed the power button and got fan spinup, a blacked out dispay and nothing else.
The AC indicator stays lit, battery indicator stays lit, hard drive indicator lights for about a second then shuts off, the power indicator flashes orange and blue constantly (2 orange, 1 blue, rinse and repeat)
So far I have cycled the power (removed battery, unplugged, depressed power button for minimum of thirty seconds). I removed and reseated the HDD. Changed out the RAM sticks. Connected to an external display.
I am pretty sure the motherboard is fried but wanted to ask the fine people on Bleeping Computer if there was any other troubleshooting steps I could take before I scrap it for parts, or if there was another possible explanation for the shenanigans that are happening.
Thank you in advance for input and you guys rock!
