So my brother's laptop suddenly shut off a few days ago. After multiple attempts the computer would not boot. Its an old Toshiba Satellite L355. I've dissasembled it and after a few minutes of inspecting the board I found small corroded areas does this mean the pc is dead?

I see dust and / or glue, not corrosion. Could you edit that image with paint or something similar and put red box(es) around the corrosion?

I see a typical PCB that has been through a  couple hundred heat/cool cycles and some condensation that collected the dirt and dust.  A complete cleaning with a non-residue electronic cleaner might bring it back.

Thanks for the advice! I'll give it a shot!
