Toshiba Satellite will not run when using the battery

My Satellite P105-S6104 will not run off battery power. I replaced the battery and the problem did not go a way. The battery light flashes orange, than I downloaded the new bios V3.30 from the Toshiba website, now the light doesn't come on at all. From the power icon in the control panel the battery capacity reads 0%.

    I had the same problem and DL the BIOS link suggested. My battery light is a pink/orange solid light. On the lower right of the computer screen it just shows a power cord instead of the battery icon and when I clicked on it it states that battery is unknown and at 0%. If the power cord even wiggles the computer just shuts off. It is driving me insane!

It really sounds like a hardware problem for which probably your motherboard may have to be replaced but i was checking on the website for bios updates and I noticed the newer bios is not v3.30 but version 4.40. posted on
08-04-2008 BIOS
I think it's probably worth it to give it a shot whith this new Bios and see where it would take you

make sure to back your data and that your power is constant while you're doing the bios flashing!

download your bios update from here:

Toshiba Satellite P105-S6104: Will not turn on


Power issues are pretty typical with laptops as most time laptops are moved around alot and are not stationary. Here are a few possibliites that could be the reason for you not having power:

1. A/C cord is could possibly be bad. Attempt to use the cord on another outlet, then try to use the same cord on another similar laptop to see if power is transmitted. If cord is faulty, then purchase another cord.

2. A/C input adapter on laptop is faulty. The A/C input adapter is where you plug your A/C cord into the laptop. This can come from the input coming loose or wiring being loose or disconnected.

a. check to see if the part is loose by touching the part with your finger.
b. if you are not a professional, take the laptop to a certifiied computer repair shop.

3. If you are a professional or are comfortable opening the laptop (do bare in mind you opening the laptop yourself violates any warranty you may have), then look at the A/C input adapter to see if it is loose or if a wire was disconnected from the motherboard.

4. If you are a professional or are comfortable opening the laptop, another option would be to check the circuitry on the motherboard to see if there is a bad transistor or circuit on the motherboard.

I hope this was helpful and thank you for contacting the experts.

If you have another power charger try it. It can only be one of two things. Bad charger or bad battery. Most likely the battery will need replaced

Have a P105 S6164 bought used lcd screen very dim


With the replacement screen did you replace the inverter board? Many laptop screens also have a very small fuse built into their power connecttions. Check this also.

Toshiba P105-S6004 Laptop will not charge battery


Motherboard repairs are often poorly done and they are expensive except for the simplest jobs like replacing the DC jack. And new motherboards are also generally very expensive. And cheap way out of this is buying a used battery charger or a used working motherboard. eBay is usually the best place to start. Good luck!
