my laptop will not start up - all I get when I push power on button is the power LED flashing the following sequence. S-S-S-S-L-L-L-S(S=SHORT, L= LONG)
DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THIS CODE INDICATES.

The only thing I might have done was to put a screw (b8 which is 12mm) into the network card locking switch slot on bottom of laptop that says MAX 4mm .
Any info would be appreciated to p.k.andrews@btinternet.com

Hello

Unfortunately here is no public document about explanation of those hexadecimal codes and I can not tell you what it means exactly. The fact is that power supply electronic has detects some malfunction and sends code.

Sorry but I donít believe that you can do something alone. Try please to contact service partner in your country and explain them the situation.

There is definitely some hardware. Your notebook sends code and on the basic of this code technicians know what you must exchange. Unfortunately the notebook must be repaired. If you need addresses from service partners in your country you can find it under http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_gaspLocator.jsp?pf=true

Your guess is correct. The screw that you put in was long enough to reach the motherboard which may have damaged it. Without looking up the code, it sounds like one of the motherboard codes. Have you tried removing the screw? If you have and it still does not work, then you are going to have to take it in to be repaired.

Hi,
Maybe you can find the BIOS code in http://www.amptron.com/html/bios.beepcodes.html
