    Toshiba Satellite L50-A-122 won't power up anymore

    o yesterday i was installing linux mint on a new partition. Everything was going fine. I'am in last part of installation and computer goes for reboot. I let it here doing other things when i came back like 20 minutes later it was still in same phase but from the text which i do not remember now it seemed as if the process didn't go 100%(first time i was installing linux). I did hit some keys like capslock and stuff and it led the in keyboard so it didn't crash i think. Now that's when disaster stroke. I shut down the laptop with the power button. From the sound it did i could tell it was different than other times(that day i actually force shutdown quite a lot) that sound you hear when a laptop power off by the button was shorter than usual and more acute. So i then click on it to power up but this time i have no luck. It shows no sign of live.

    I have tried holding the power button for 10, 20, 30 seconds even a minute and it won't power up. When this happened i had battery which was still pretty full but now even with ac cable on the lights wont turn on. What could be the problem?

    It sounds like your laptop shut down and left some bad states in some devices.

    The first thing I would do to a 'not powering' laptop is to reset it.

    I think the reset procudure varies with the model/manufacturer but for instance, on most HP laptops you can reset by unplugging power and battery and pressing the power button for sometime.
