Hello all,

I recently replaced the power port on my laptop and the computer will no longer boot up. Due to a crack in the case I have to replace the power port on my toshiba laptop every few months because it is loose and eventually starts to short. Everything went as normal replacing the cord however when I went to go turn the computer on it no longer will start. The power button will flash on as well as the on indicator in the front of the computer (the fan also starts up) after a second it all turns off. When it is plugged in the charging indicator is lit up so I know it is receiving power.

I have tried unplugging all of it and holding down the power button for 30 seconds and that didn't help.

Also if the battery is taken out but the computer is plugged in it doesn't do anything (I'm not sure if this is standard or not I just assumed most laptops could function without the battery)

Thanks in advance

Did you replaced the charging by yourself?, if yes then, were you grounded?, if not you could've damaged the motherboard, which would cause problems and render the laptop unusable, I would suggest opening your laptop and reseating the cables as a loose cable could also cause problems

 

If you took it to a technician, I suggest taking it back and tell them your problem.

I did replace the port by myself. I have done it multiple times and I don't think anything was different although it's possible I wasn't grounded. If the motherboard was damaged does that mean the computer is done for good?

You could replace the motherboard itself, but I'd prefer taking out your HDD, buy a new laptop and insert your old HDD

Oh okay thank you. How difficult is it out actually replace the motherboard? I am fairly technically savvy with software, but I don't have much experience with hardware besides replacing a few cords and plugging things in. I will likely just buy a new computer but I may want to replace this motherboard too since it really did run quite well still. Thanks again for all of your help it is much appreciated.
