it's not looking good... short story is, no display, not even external... and, it's not even showing up on my router. Fan is on, power light is on... no other sign of life.
windows 8.1 Toshiba Satellite C55D......... almost 2 years old.
My daughter is a LITTLE rough with it from time to time when she's upset but, nothing too bad. There's no cracks, dents, or anything in it... hinges are fine... We've had laptops take far worse beatings and work fine... so, I'm not sure if it's something that physically happened to it... A few weeks back she brought it to me saying the screen wouldn't come on. I took it, looked at it, and the screen came on for me. Didn't give that another thought. She used it yesterday with no issue. But I couldn't get it on last night or today so far.
When you power it on, it seems as if nothing happens. If you put your ear to it you can hear the fan... nothing else... nothing. Power light on the front and on the button are on.
Have tried plugging to external... messed with the button to switch to external... nothing.
Got into my router and now seeing it show up... I really don't think it's actually booting at this point... hard to say for sure but doesn't seem it.
Part of me wants to open it up just to see if something is loose or something but, I can't really picture that being the case.
Wondering if I need to just get a new mobo.
Would hate to have to buy a new laptop.
