I have a ~2.5 year old Toshiba M35X and over the weekend I was using it while plugged into AC power (battery fully charged too I think) and it just shut off, acted like it went into hibernate mode. The blue ring around power button stayed illuminated. I tried to cycle power using button and it would not shut off/do anything. I removed battery and tried to power up. The CPU fan runs for like 1 second (always did that) and then blue ring stays on, nothing else. I plugged it into a desktop monitor to see if screen failed but nothing there either. I took it apart and re-seated everything and no change. I tried without battery to see if it failed and was dumping the power but no change. Do you think the internal PS failed? Mother board? Can I test any of that with digital multi-meter? I put recovery disk in and the CD ROM drive never runs. I can not get to the bios or safe mode. Other than the fan cycling for the second it acts totally dead. Any thoughts / advice?
