    Hello. I was hoping to get some ideas/opinions on how i can further proceed to diagnose a laptop I have.

    Toshiba Satellite L655D-S5050
    Model # PSK2LU-001003

    current symptoms:

    does not POST
    does not boot
    black screen (no lights)

    upon pressing the power button
    fan will spin once, stop, then after a few seconds spin full blast and remain that way forever

    charger led lights up when plugged in to charger
    power led lights up when turned on
    no beeps (assuming this model does error beeps)


    nothing in LCD screen (not even any lights)
    nothing in external monitor plugged into laptop
    nothing when trying to invoke external monitor with fn+f5

    tested each memory stick AND memory slot individually.
    tested with no memory at all
    tested with hdd removed
    tested with cd drive removed (cd rom makes some noise when it's plugged in. probably reading the disc inside?)
    tested with battery removed

    totally stumped.

    i want to say mobo and call it a day but I'm never too sure and would like a 2nd/3rd opinion.

    have I been thorough enough? what else can i test?


    thank you very much for your time. :)
