I've had it for maybe 2 years now, and have no idea if its still under warranty. I don't remember downloading any viruses that could possibly lead up to a processor failure. I tried holding down the power button for 15-20 seconds like someone suggested, and then plugged the AC adapter in.9/1/2012 | (Forums)

I am a computer technician. I have a customer with the same issue. The laptop is out of warranty. Please advise what I can do to get this repaired. Thanks!

I too have received the deadly 7 beeps and blank screen... Received this almost 2 years ago as a birthday present and can't believe this is happening. I have a Toshiba for 8 years now and it may be a little slow but it works and have never had something like this happen.
Hi there, I came across this answer as by accident and it sounded a little bit crazy for me but as BRAINMECHANIC said I did not have anything to lose, and boy was it a great idea? I can tell you that was the best thing ever, it worked like a charm, so please keep up with the good work.
Yes. I just did as you said. It didn't even take a novice like me no time at all. i will say, under 10 mins. I had to shield around the processors with piece of cheap aluminium baking pan. With a 9 bucks pen touch and 8 bucks thermal compound, the job was done. tThanks.
My laptop will not turn on and I am getting the 7 beeps. Any ideas for getting this fixed as my warranty has expired. This is the first error my computer has had. Any help would be greatly appreciated.4/23/2014 | (Forums)
