    When I push the power button on my laptop the light comes on, it makes a sound as if its going to start up, and then total silence. The screen never comes on at all and the light stays on as if the laptop is on but it is lifeless. Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7005. Please help.

    It was the motherboard, I am trying to locate one that does not cost more than $200. Does anyone know of a place that has wholesale prices on motherboards? Thank you for your response as well.

    I have actually bought a new one already but I still wanted to fix that one. A week before this happened I spent $115 on getting the entire top half of the laptop replaced. Plus I just love that laptop. I take classes online and that is the main thing that I do with that laptop. I surf the internet at times but that is it.

    In your opinion do you feel like it would be a waste of money to repair the laptop?
