Toshiba Satellite P25 Boot Problem

I'm trying to help a person figure out what is wrong with their laptop. It intermittently boots. Other times, it just gets a black screen (no POST info, etc.), even though the power light is on. Any ideas as to what is causing this and how to fix it? Could this be a motherboard issue caused by a weak solder point?

Today's new lead free solder is why. How would you fix that?

If you connect any of the hardware components of your Toshiba Satellite
laptop improperly you may face booting or turn on problem in your
Toshiba Satellite laptop. During the booting process or start up process
you need to ensure that all external devices are connected properly or
any damaged hardware is not connected to your system. If it detect the
presence of improperly connected hard drive or damaged hard drive, it
would prevent the boot process or start up process until you properly
connect it or replace the damaged hardware. Also it should be made sure
that the RAM is connected properly and it is free from dust. You need to
check all device connected to your system before starting the boot
process and remove damaged device if exists.
