I am troubleshooting a Toshiba Satellite L500D from around 2009 with AMD CPU and GPU running Win 7. When I first started the laptop, no issues.
But trying to start it a second time after a shutdown, impossible to boot up again. Tried with and without the battery, in connection power and battery and holding the power button for up to a minute, boot with the zero key pressed. I even disassembled the laptop to look for loose cable or anything out of place.
Power, battery and "on" buttons are all working but not the HDD. Screen stays black - no back light.
I left the laptop sitting for a couple of days and tried again. Laptop will boot and restart but not after shout down. When running, HDD light is working.
Any idea for I should check next?
Thanks for your help!
