Question about Computers & Internet
I have a toshiba A15-S157 Laptop. It starts up and then shuts down. I can hit the windows key located on the left of the spacebar. and it will beep and continue until I manualy turn it off. I have hit the F1 key to get into the bios. It will allow me in the bios for about 1-1.5 minutes then shuts down. I have replaced the motherboard,cpu,rams,Battery,and the dvd/cd player. I still have the same problem. I've tried just about everything to repair this laptop. I even bought a toshiba recovery disk and this didn't help. I have heard it's an overheating problem, bios, or that there's a jumper in the motherboard that I didn't know about. the jumper if there is one I haven't tried. Now you girls and guys are the experts. Any suggestions besides looking for the nearest trash can. I've invested alot of money and I guess it's my frustration that keeps me intrigued with finding and spending money to fix this computer..Hope you all can help..Thanks. Michael
And what about Your power adapter? Did You try another one?

Most likely is the power section (if you use a transformer). Try to run the laptop w/o the battery. if it still have the same porblem, then you need to either go to the repair shop order a replacement power supply (may not available as an standalone unit, most of thime it is buildin to the motherboard.).
or go to ebay get a whole motherboard.
