Toshiba Satelitte l455 s5000 charging problems

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?

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite M65-S909 laptop will not start

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:-|

SOURCE: "Plugged in, not charging", Toshiba Satellite A135 S4527, under Windows Vista Home Premium

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.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite L300 shuts down when ac power plugged in

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

http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

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

Bob.

Ihave a Toshiba Satelitte L455 laptop that will not boot. the power light is lit but the fan does not turn on


Computer does not boot upThe problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needsreseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car,sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faultson your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience todeal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows themto look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collectionof replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components onyour computer.

This clearly shows that you have a defective motherboard and it needs to be replaced. Try contacting Toshiba support for this, hope this computer is still under warranty.

Toshiba satelitte adapter went bad ordered new one it wont work


If the old one works you have another power supply or wrong one.
Check the properties of your power supply.

Related to your issue you also may consider this:


1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge.
2.- Battery is bad.
3.- Battery charger board is bad.

Solutions:
1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge
Verify that the AC and or DC cable is not bad by testing the computer only with the power plug connected and the battery out of the laptop.
2.- Battery is bad
It is possible that if the power plug is good that the computer battery is bad. Leave the computer connected to the power with the battery connected in the computer for at least one hour; if the battery does not charge, consider having the battery and/or the laptop serviced or repaired.
If the computer and/or battery is not in warranty consider just replacing the battery as it is very likely that it is just a bad battery.
3.- Battery charger board is bad
If the battery has been replaced or an alternate battery from an alternate identical laptop does not work in the computer, it is likely that the power or charger board within the laptop is bad. It is recommended that the laptop be serviced or repaired.
