    I got a laptop from my brother inlaw a 2 years ago.
    I dont know much about it I havent used it except for the day he gave it to me.
    I know it's a Toshiba Qosmio X70 PSLTU
    WIN 7.
    I tried to use it and the blue load screen came up but just continued to spin.
    I knew they were coming in town in a few days so I waited.
    I showed it to him and he was puzzled.
    We opened it and the ram was gone...yep you read that right...GONE!! (Not sure how that happened but have my thoughts )
    Anyway..I ordered ram and installed it.
    Now the power button and keyboard lights blink once and never powers up.
    I've removed and reinstalled ram, bought new power supply, hard reset it a few times and pulled CMOS battery out for 30 seconds.
    I used to build pcs during win xp era so not completely clueless but, I'm way behind the times.
    This has me flustered. I've never worked on a laptop.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    ESD (or other) damage caused by the person that removed the RAM?

    Please try to find the full model name, should be on a label underneath the laptop.

    Also what exact ram did you install ? f you are unsure please copy the text on the ram stick into your reply.

    I got something.
    Took out ram and cmos again.
    It started up without ram.
    Said the RTC is low.
    It still wont boot but it's starting. Just spinning "Toshiba leading innovation"
    (I'll keep it on and plugged in)
    So I but a new one.
    It's a start.
    I'll get one today n update.

    Hope it will now

    That might not be compatible ram, contact your brother-in-law about the password. Toshiba ram usually needs to be system specific. RTC, I think that is the Cmos battery on the board. Ram city shows the 4GB module needs to be a 1R8 (Single Rank) 8-chip 512M x8. You have a Dual rankX8 ram. Ram is supposed to be DDR3L 1.35volts also.
