Always measure the CMOS battery voltage.
Always remove hard disks, cd/dvd drives and try one stick of RAM.
Always try another Tosh power pack.
If the machine was dropped, none of the above helps (99% of the time.)
With the battery and with the power brick, it will not turn on. I do see the light on the laptop indicating that it is receiving power whether I have the battery or the power brick connected. I tried disconnecting and holding the power button for one minute, but no luck. Could the motherboard be toast?
Thanks in advance!
