I have a Toshiba satellite p50-a laptop and today when I tried to turn it on the power light came on but the screen remained dark. I've also noticed that when the adapter is plugged in to charge it , the charge lights don't go on. I've tried taking the battery out and running it like that but I get the same result, power goes on but no image.
After its on I can't even turn it back off, I have to physically removed the battery or take out the adapter for it to turn off. I also tested the adapter on another laptop and it works fine.
Hoping someone might have some ideas as to why this would happen.
I just wanted to mention that I don't notice the hdd initialize when it turns on, the dvd drive does work.
