Hi all,
The above laptop shuts down within a few seconds of power up.
I've opened up the case to check a few things and found that the graphics
chip fan does not come on at start up. Is this normal? Or does it only start
up when it's needed?
Could this be the cause of the almost immediate shutdown through

Fans on most portables come on only when needed, so I assume that is
the case with your notebook PC too. Perhaps its something else.

I have just gotten back from the repair center where they have replaced
the mainboard on my daughters m35x-s149 laptop. It is 18 months old and
has been in the shop three times for various power problems. This
latest repair was actually still covered by toshiba's warrantee. The
tech at the shop said that toshiba has been having so many problems
with this that they are repairing them under warrantee.  I can't say
that your model is covered under this same policy but...
I asked but did not find out if they redesigned the board or not to fix
the problem or are just replacing them with already suspect parts.
