Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet
My toshiba l455 s5000 will only charge if the computer is shut off. It runs off battery even when plugged in. The ac light is on but the charge light is flashing unless the computers shut down. If I take the battery out it will turn on but shuts back off before it finishes booting up. I have a new power supply cord and checked the charging receptical and wires, they seem to be good. Any ideas?

I had the same thing happen when I was fiddling with the 9092 monitor refresh rate. The video circuit had a few episodes of video switching and the system shut down never to wake again. I figured it was connected to this circuit but I couldn't fix it. I bought a new one but I haven't tried to recreate the problem:-|

It sounds like the power socket on the laptop is faulty and needs replacing or resoldering. To check this, power up the latop with the power adapter, wriggle the plug in the power socket and check if the battery charge indicator flicks on and off indicating charging and not charging. If it indicator flicks on and off then you have a faulty power socket.
This can be repaired but required the laptop to be completely dismantled to access the power connector.

How about this step, try to turn off the laptop itself. Remove the cables and battery just like what you did before, then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Then, reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and then turn on the computer itself. If the laptop restarts, shuts down or freezes with the AC power cables, two things that you should seriously consider. It might be the power cable itself, AC cable port or the circuitry going to the motherboard. And since you have cleaned out the fan and heat sink, you have isolated that problem. Have you plug-in another power cable on your laptop? If yes, then check if it works. Otherwise, the main issue is that the AC port is loose or the circuitry of AC adapter going to the motherboard is not not working. You can re-open the unit and check the circuitry from the AC port going to the motherboard. You may check the circuitry from AC port to the power supply if it is ok. If symptom persist, please contact your local dealer...

Windows 7 is one of the more secure versions of windows.
If you did whats known as a "factory" restore then the password will also have been reset to the default.
If you did just a staged restore back to a date when you were one of the users then the password should still be the same.
Windows 7 does offer you the option of making a password reset disc and if you did not do that then you would need to try log in with the admin account.
The default on most (but not all) is username = Administrator and the password is either empty or = admin or administrator
If that fails you could try by downloading UBCD or a copy of HIRENS boot CD
UBCD is here
This has password reset tools etc
Burn it on a clean computer and then boot from the CD itself to get access o the reset programs.
Hope you get it sorted

Try external monitor, if it works then more likley the backlight inverter or the lamp is bad.
see www.insidemylaptop.com for example.
Please leave rating if it helps.
