    I have a power up issue with my Toshiba Satellite A505-S6033. About a month ago my laptop suddenly shutoff and is showing no power incoming/charging. When I try removing the charger and plug and holdong down the power button it ends up not doing anything andiI've tried for about 5 mins. It does however light up for a split second when I remove the battery and plug the adapter in; it makes the power led flicker red and out again. I'm thinking it was just fried/motherboard dead but since its lighting up I'm hoping that's not the case.

    it could be the charging port...im not sure if it can be replaced/repaired without having to get a new board though...

    I thought it was that but the way its been acting like steps to get it tk make that flicker makes.me think otherwise. It is an easy fix its all 1 piece unless I wanted to just get the port and sodder the leads onto it. I was thinking that it could be an error code.or something? Might be wishful thinking, computers are never that easy lol

    Based on my experience with older Toshiba Satellite laptops, I'm guessing one or both needs to be done:

    1. The hard drive needs to be replaced.

    2. A clean reinstall of Windows needs to be done.

    No point in having a HDD replaced if it doesnt start lol. I refresh my OS every 2 years or so.
