Toshiba power led flashing yellow
This flashing LED usually means only two things, both are quite harmless:
1. Some laptops will flash the power LED when battery is charging. If this is the case, it should stop when battery is fully charged. This can be presumed if the laptop starts normally while LED flashes. If not, suspect step 2 below:
laptop is either "asleep" (suspended) or in "hibernation" mode.It does
this if left for a long time with no activity/input from you. You must
simply "wake the laptop up" now:
Look for a symbol on keyboard
for "sleeping" (like a half moon with zzzz) and press that key WITH
whatever color coded key matches the symbol color (usually "FN" key).
If there is no suchkey, press the space bar and hold it down a few
Then wait. Can take 60 seconds to "wake up" on slower processors.
this does not work, press AND hold the POWER button for 10 seconds.
Then wait 60 seconds and press power key again, briefly, to start
Pressing and holding the power button 6-10 seconds forces a complete system shutdown.
this happens often, something may be wrong with APM or ACPI
settings/driver. You can go to start menu/settings/control panels/power
management and adjust settings (or disable sleep/suspend and
hibernation if all else fails to resolve situation)
