Toshiba Portege R500-S5001X not booting up!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Need some help please!


Toshiba Portege R500-S5001X running I believe XP


Laptop shut down while viewing pictures from "My Pictures Folder" in slide show mode, when I went to start it up a screen message that said any key to resume, something like that, space bar pushed and nothing.

I am now on an initial screen as follows everytime I push the power button.


"In Touch with Tomorrow TOSHIBA"

Bottom right is a white field with "Intel"

Center bottom has five icons.


When I power the system up I get the power button light and the wireless icon.

For a short one second I get the processor light but then goes out.

I have taken the battery source out and only have the power direct, I have held the start button on for more than a minute and also have tried to use F12, (when I do that the five icons on the bottom have a courser appears that moves from one to the other by using the arrow keys.

Fan runs but you can tell that the processor is not engaged.


How can I get this booted up?
