    I have a big problem, I have a toshiba satellite Laptop L455D S5976 that wont start has no power no lights in other words dead. I tried a new power adapter cord, I installed new power jack and still no power and no lights. Right now i have the whole laptop disasemable, Also where can i buy a tester to check the motherboard and all the other compoents like the cpu, Heat sink, Memory chips, Especially the motherboard. If anybody can help it's you guys.

    Thank you,

    tonchis

    Although you do not say so

    and presuming the battery was flat and it could not therefore be tested on battery only without charging the same - I presume you did try a new POWER adapter, as against just the connecting cable and new power mini jack socket
    Or at least test that you had an output from the adapter

    The answer to the actual question is you cannot, there is no such thing as ONE tester for what you specify
    The heat sink would not STOP it posting, even if it cut out as soon as it detected overheat on the processor

    Presuming that it has more than one stick of ram, simply removing one and swopping over before of course you dismantled it was the test for that

    However although a failed ram stick may stop it booting it would not stop the power led illuminating on the laptop

    My opinion is, with no power led whatsoever and if you have eliminated power supply as first mentioned
    capacitor failure on board on circuit that takes power from connections of jack.
    It may of course NOT be so, but that is in my experience favourite

    Replacing the battery and the power adapter may have resolved that "completely dead" issue like it did with mine.

    AC Adapter:
    65W (19V 3.42A) Auto-sensing, 100-240V / 50-60Hz input

    Battery:
    Li-Ion (4000mAh, 6-Cell)

    I wondered if we did.
    Hope you made some progress.
