laptop powers on, no hdd light, does not load windows, dark screen - dead.

I have a Toshiba Satelite with intel processor, 1.5gig memory and a 250 G hdd...about 2.5 years old.

When I push the on button, the power light comes on, but that is it....does not access the hd, the hd inidcator light does not repsond at all when the on button is pressed....jsut sits there with a black screen.

I have searched this forum and googled and all but have not found this particular problem listed or a fix.

THe last week before this total failure, I had a number of times the computer would be fine and suddenly a blue screen would flash and the computer would reboot before I could read it. The last 2 times, if I moved the computer physically, picked it up from the floor or desk it would also go blue screen and reboot.

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks,

Galen

As Peter indicated, please provide the full model number for your computer.  It is printed on the bottom.  Do not provide the serial number.

 

Does it matter whether the computer is plugged into the power adapter (and the adapter into a known working outlet) or just on battery power?
