Apologies if this is the wrong section.




Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-12F

Windows 7.


This laptop has had extremely little use and is one of 2-3 that I have (ex works)


Was working ok but was left for quite a while without use (year or so) I went to charge it up but no led lights at all and obviously wouldn't boot up. I swapped charger and battery from another (same model) but still dead.


Is there anything I can try (it owes me nothing) rather than put it in for repair?


Thanks in advance

Try removing the battery and the power supply and holding down the power button for about a minute with no power source attached.  Then reconnect the power adapter (leave the battery out) and see if it will start up. If it does, replace the battery, leave it for a while and see if it will charge. Good luck!
