|My mother's laptop, Toshiba Satellite M305D-S4830, keeps going through a power cycle like a skipping CD, or Record. There was another issue that I recently fixed with it the week before. The screen would flicker when touched (common with these). I replaced the LCD ribbon and problem solved. At first, I thought it was the hdd going bad and just corrupting the boot cycle. When I put in the Windows 7 install disc it was doing the same thing. Then I removed the hdd, and still it is doing the same cycle. It will not load at all. It never makes it to the manufacturers logo or the BIOS. So now, I have a few hypothesis's from some more general reading. 1.) I screwed something up installing the LCD ribbon. The power jack on the motherboard, or crossed a circuit with a static sensitive part. No spark or charge heard or felt 2.) The BIOS chip is bad, which means the motherboard is bad. And 3.) I have no idea. I am not concerned with having to re-solder the power jack as I have read how to fix that common issue with these laptops as well. Please help!! Any suggestions and ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advanced.|
I don't need to be right, but I am never wrong.
