Peter, i think u need to check your power saver settings. It might be set to 15 minutes or less. If settings are correct, then try to update BIOS. Pls visit support.toshiba.com for US model or toshiba.ca/support for Canadian model to look for the updated BIOS version.

Try this Peter, i think it will work.

You have been very thorough in your fault finding, gone through everything that I could think of. Not heard of this before though.

A couple of possibilities:
Regular ticking, points to a hard drive bearing failing
Also, could be a wire or similar catching against the cpu fan

However, seeing as you investigated these, I suggest this could be related to an electrical short, possibly from the DC port on the motherboard, the flickering light on the charge led would bear this out. Try removing the case again, take it into a dark room and power on, look for small arcing across this area

Check for a DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

Charger faulty or Motherboard problem.
You can check the power supply of the charger by measuring the DC voltage at the DC jack with a multimeter set to DC volts (red probe on the inner of the jack, black probe on the outer of the jack, should measure 18-20 volts.

Also check the security of the jack in the DC port, make sure it is not loose

See if the Ac adaptor has a green led on it, flashing LED indicates power not being "used " by the laptop

Gut instinct with this being a compaq is that the fault lies in the motherboard

I have ac adapter plugged into the wall, and into the computer, the charge pack light is green, the battery is in the computer and the computer won't turn on at all


You probably have a bad or loose DC jack on the laptop:



Problem symptoms:

  1. Laptop randomly shuts down without any warning.
  2. Power LED and battery charge LED start flickering when you wiggle the power cord or the AC adapter tip on the back or your laptop.
  3. The battery will not get charged.
  4. When you plug AC adapter, the laptop appears to be dead and there is no LED activity at all (DC-IN jack on the system board is broken).

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work
5. The power button could be bad
.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Could be loose battery pack.
A bad memory chip would do this as well. Sounds like your not getting power.

Try this,

Unplug it, remove battery, wait couple minutes, press and hold the power button for 5 full long seconds, wait couple minutes more, then put battery back in securely, then plug in, turn back on.

Toshiba satellite A60 no boot


We can only assume that because the cd drive operates then the motherboard is operating in part, although, the southbridge chip may be damaged, as the northbridge works memory etc. Maybe it is that the processor is fried as there is no fan and the system then shuts down. Toshiba are probably half way there with the answer, unless; they investigated further and decided it was not the processor but the motherboard.
