Hey there,
I have a Toshiba R100 portege but it seems to have developed a problem.
The batteries are charged and the AC power is connected but the laptop
will not switch on.

The on/off button definitely clicks and the LED's for AC connected and
batteries charged/charging are alight.

I have removed the panel above the button to see beneath and the
push-button on the board looks fine and it clicks in and out normally.

Any recomendations? Anyone encountered this problem before?

Any help appreciated! Thanks, Alex.

I have a Toshiba Satellite and the same thing happened. I pushed as
hard as i could on the power button and it came on. But I would say
your dc power plug in is bad or is going bad. Mine did.
