Laptop White Light when trying to turn it on.

I have a Toshiba Laptop and all I get is a white light when I power it on, it has come on before when I messed about with the RAM such as swaping the slot and trying a different module. It was on working and just done it again so I am lost. Any Ideas, thanks in advance.

Try removing the battery and charger and hold the power button in for 30 seconds. Replace the battery and charger and see if it boots.

Sounds as though the processor etc are dead and only the backlight is coming on. CVan you try booting from a disk?

I have tried taking the battery out etc. The thing is though, I can get it to come on sometimes by messing with the RAM but it does it again. The white light is just at the front of the laptop, the power light, not on the screen, sorry I wasn't very clear lol. Thanks for the replies. Any other ideas?

You might have disturbed a connection somewhere when messing with the ram. Next time you boot put some pressure gently on and around the touchpad. If it boots then check connections again. I don't know if you have to remove the lower case completely or just a ram compartment on your Toshiba.

Would that have anything to do with it? Sorry I'm not used to forums so I had trouble uploading the image.
