Anyone had this problem?
Toshiba Satellite A65 -S1062 won't boot.  Blue light comes on for about four
seconds, one long machine beep, then shuts off.  Same problem under main
power or battery.  Battery green light comes on for a few seconds, then off.
When this started, I could get the machine to boot after about six attempts,
now nothing.  When last operational, battery showed fully charged.

Finally got it booted last night.  Left it on overnight.  This morning
blinking yellow hibernation light was on.  Normal restart for this is to
push button and blue light will come on.  Pushed button. Computer shut down,
would not restart.

Windows XP, no peripherals.

Any ideas before I incur a big repair bill on a 3-year old computer?

Did you try reseating the memory? Or try one memory chip at a time?
IRVista has a tear down in photos on their site.
