Before we begin, I would like to make sure you understand that some product-related problems are not "fixable" and the appropriate answer may include directing you to an authorized service center product. If you reached our site by mistake, or if I am not able to help you, you can request a refund at or by e-mailing***@******.***

Wes :

If the system has a removable battery, remove it, unplug the power adapter, then press and hold the power button seconds. Re-install the battery and attempt to start the computer. If it does not start, plug the power adapter in and try again. If it doesn't turn on, try removing the battery again but leave the power adapter plugged in and try to turn it on one last time. If all of the above fail, the system has experienced a hardware failure which will need to be repaired by an authorized Toshiba service center.
