HI. I have a Toshiba sattelite a105 s101 with 1.2 gig ram & 60gbHD running winxp pro. it is about 4 years old. It will no longer boot. i was watching a video on youtube and the computer completely froze. when i re-booted, no bios screen, no video. when powering up,the hard disk spins for a second, then stops. it is not trying to load the OS.
connected external monitor to VGA port, nothing.
attempted booting from CD with ubuntu, disk spins but does not load.
removed RAM swapped slots, no change.
removed HD, no change.
Removed internal wifi card, no change.
re-seated video card, no change
running with/without battery, no change.
the bios was flashed 3 years ago, but hasn't been flashed since because there is no further update for the current laptop model.
Thanks For your help.
