I have had even new sticks of ram not work in one machine, but are fine in another. Put the old ram back in and make sure everything works like you want, then try the ram again. If they are still giving problems, unfortunately it looks like even more ram is your solution.

May be a faulty wifi card.

But check Adapter settings in control panel to ensure wifi card is "enabled" and check device manager to ensure correct wifi driver is installed.

It may be stuck in hibernation. Just press and hold the power button for 8 seconds until it shuts down all the way. Power it back on and you should be good

I would say the laptop is done. You have given it more than enough time to dry out so you have shorted out something on the motherboard. Remove the hard drive so that you have access to the information stored on it. You can pick up a refurbished laptop from micro center for under 200.00.

Replace the hdd.

Did you replace it with an identical part? Should work fine if you did. I would contact Toshiba tech services for guidance on this matter. Have you tried it with an external monitor?

When you say that the hard drive works I have to ask how you know. There are not many parts in a laptop that would make a clicking noise. One of them is the hard drive. Is there any display activity at all? Lights on the unit that come on?

That error comes up when the computer cannot find the hard drive or any other device to boot from so it looks for a network booting program and when it cannot find that, the error shows up. REPLACE YOUR HARD DISK,
