Really?

by The Scummy One In reply to TOSHIBA A105-S2001

While I cant say for sure, I never remember doing anything like that before.

Try pulling the battery and waiting a minute, put it back in and power up. It may also be that the RAM is not seated properly, or is bad. Try pulling it out, does it boot (power off first, and remove the battery to be sure)

Didn't you notice that the laptop was 'warm'?

Or the lights showing that power was still being applied??!!

While it is very likely that

the system board or chip is damaged, try my suggestion above. I have known people to remove RAM while the system was running, and not cause damage.

Try Scummy's suggestion first ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Toshiba

You might get a bit of his 'luck' rub off on you!

As for replacing components, without knowing how far the static damage managed to spread, you could end up spending far more than the laptop is worth.

If you've got a local computer repair outlet, you might be better asking them for an examination report of the Toshiba at component level first. No point replacing the motherboard to then discover further damage to other components.

You could also remove the Toshiba's hard drive and place it in a USB Caddy. This could be run from another computer to check if the data is still intact. Chances are that replacing the motherboard would require that the OS be installed from scratch.

At least you would know if your program data is still intact.
