Toshiba Satellite C850 wont power on.

Pushing the power button has no effect.  I do have one light on on the front of the computer, it's white.  I've tried removing the battery, disconnecting the ac and holding down the power button for 60 seconds.  When I installed the battery and connected the ac all three lights on the front lit up and the screen lit up for a couple of seconds then went out it did this without me pushing the power button.  I have checked the voltage of the power cord and it is fine(19v).  I also checked the bios battery and it is fine (3v).   The hard drive and fan don't power on.  I don't think it's a black screen problem It seems more like it just doesn't power on.  Does this model have a magnetic switch that activates when the lid is opened?  Thank you for any help.

I believe it does have the magnetic switch. Most of our laptops do now.

 

Unfortunately, it sounds like a hardware failure to me.

Can you check the laptop's full model and part numbers from the label on the bottom? Don't include the serial number.

 

What happens exactly?

That doesn't appear to be a US model, and this is the forums for Toshiba USA. You may want to contact Toshiba in your region.

While You Turn On The Laptop , Press " F2 " Keys Until You Enter To BIOS Menu Then In " Power Management " Tab Go To " Panel Open - Power On " Select " Disable " ...
