I have a 4 year old Toshiba Satellite A75-S206 (Mobile Pentium 4 518 2.8 GHz, 512 MB RAM, 60 GB HDD).
I can't even get it to turn on anymore. It is plugged in to the AC, the light in the front is lit, but when I turn it on, the fans begin to turn, but it immediately turns off again.
Can anyone HELP me?!!! :thumbsup:

Toshiba's are notorious for such behavior.
I have a A35-S159, and it was doing the same thing, it would shut down by itself.
This is what you need to do:
The issue is clogged Heat Sink and fans.
Go to this link:

Follow the instructions and clean the heat sink, this should resolve the issue.
Let me know if this worked... it worked on mine.... :thumbsup:
