Hi 1trainer2nv,

I have been having the EXACT same problem with my Toshiba notebook (Satellite A135-S4527). At first, I thought it was an issue regarding my AC adapter. But after getting it checked out by a certified Toshiba service technician, he diagnosed it as an issue dealing with the component on the motherboard that corresponds to the power supply. For me, the problem was that the computer's cooling fan was not as efficient/powerful as it should have been for the system. This resulted in the eventual overheating of some of the hardware components. From what I hear, Toshiba is notorious for not equipping their laptops with adequate fans. The technician estimated that it would cost at least $300 to resolve the issue. He also told me that an external laptop fan that slides under your notebook could have mitigated the overheating.

Fortunately, I have still been able to use my laptop even though this problem has been affecting my notebook for the better part of four months. What I have been doing is running the laptop solely on battery power, not from power provided by the AC adapter. Don't ask me how this has been working -- I have no idea. And the good thing is that I am still able to charge my battery when the laptop is shut off. When the system is unable to receive power, however, I remove the battery from the computer and I leave the AC adapter unplugged for at least 24 hours. Then after jiggling the adapter around in the computer's power input hole and/or inserting it multiple times until I see a solid blue light for the power signal, I will reinsert my battery for charging.

I cannot guarantee that this will also work for your system, but it's surely worth a try. I hope this helped and best of luck!

Why Toshiba Satellite A665 Laptop won't start?


Have you tried pressing space bar (maybe its in hibernation mode) ?

or try holding power button for a few seconds (10) then turn it back on.

as a last resort you could try take the battery out, disconnect it from the power adapter, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then place the battery back in and the power adapter and try powering it on?

I HAVE A TOSHIBA SATALITE A135-S4427 TURNED IT OFF ONE NIGHT WORKING FINE, THE NEXT DAY IT WONT TURN ON. I HAVE POWER THRU THE CORD AT ABOUT 18+ VOLTS BUT NO INDICATOR LIGHTS OR POWER TO COMPUTER. HELP?


Try removing the battery and power supply, hold the power button for about 10 seconds then just plug the power supply back in (not the battery) and see if it turns on.
Holding the power button with no power supply can discharge any stored power in capacitors.

My toshiba satellite L300 has no power


Please follow these steps VERY CAREFULLY:

1) Unplug the notebook from the ac adapter (charger power cord)

2) Take off the battery pack on the notebook

3) Once the ac adapter and battery is off the notebook, hold down the power button for 15 seconds

4) After 15 seconds, let go of the power button

5) Now plug in the AC ADAPTER (OR CHARGER POWER CORD) ONLY (DO NOT PUT BACK THE BATTERY PACK)

6) Now press the power button once.

7) If the unit boots, the unit suffered a slight surge

8) If the unit does not boot and remains dead, the unit suffered a severe surge and may be burned out and needs replacing

I hope this helps and let me know how it goes afterwards
