    Hi I bought my Toshiba laptop about two years ago from best buy. I was playing a game on it and it froze up shut down and won't turn back on no matter what I do. The orange light just keeps flashing five times on the front of the computer if I press the power button. I am using win 10. It won't turn on if I take the battery out either.

    Try a reset... remove battery and from AC. Press and hold power ON button for 30secs at least. Put back battery back and plug into AC then Power ON as normal.

    Idk if it helps but I do have extra sticks of RAM I upgraded it to when I bought it. Would it help to try and remove one?

    agreed, removing peripherals. SD card remove any extra ram that you might have installed (not the factory mounted), remove any external device you might have connected to the machine.

    check also that the AC Adaptor is the right one for your machine (especially the Ampere must be even or higher than what the machine requies - this is written on both the machine and AC Adaptor). the voltage must be the same

    K I'm trying that now. All factory plugs and stuff. The RAM is two sticks of 4 gig ddr3 so I'll try to take one out.

    If possible, using another power adapter for testing purposes and would narrow another variable.
