Toshiba not getting power

My toshiba laptop is not getting any power. It was running fine the night before and then shutdown due to low battery. I tried the a/c adapter and it does not work. The LED light on the laptop that indicates the a/c adapter is plugged in does not come on. When I try to turn the laptop on the on/off button lights up for a second and then shuts off.

    I know its not the battery because the on/off light comes on for a second and then shuts off. The thing is that when i plug the a/c adapter the light on the laptop that shows the adapter is connected is not lighting up.

    No I dont have another adapter. How can I test to see if it is the adapter?

  • g_mart Oct 23, 2008

    I have another toshiba adapter with the same voltage and watts but the plug in part is different size.......should I cut it off and connect the other plug to it......do you think that might work

  • g_mart Oct 23, 2008

You may have completely drained your battery which it will need a full recharge before it will work again.

    O do you have another adapter to see if the problem is the labtop or the old adapter?

    No that probably won't work at all and you'd end up frying your mobo.

I just purchased a toshiba mini notebook NB 505 it has about 5 hrs. of time on it. Went to turn it on the other night and when it starts up the screen was lite up but nothing else. I can not shut down...


It happens when the NB was not properly shutdown, NB was turned off due to battery drained and left idle or worst there is a problem with the mother board. You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB. If the laptop will not boot by doing this, take it back from the reseller for replacement.

Try letting the computer sit without the battery for a few minutes, and also without external power. Then try plugging in your external power WITHOUT the battery and try to start it up. If it does, add the battery while it is running. Then try it with the battery only.

This is a middle pin issue, you will find the laptop doesn't charge either but will power the unit, if the power is connected, the laptop will hang and use reserve resources, if you unplug it, the machines performance will dramatically increase.

replace your power adaptor and all will be fine, i have had the same issue.

MY COMPUTER SHUTDOWN WHILE IT HAS A 60%REMAINING BATTERY. UNEXPECTED SHUTDOWN. MY LAPTOP CANT RESUME THE PROGRAMS RUNNING AND UNSAVED DOCUMENTS AFTER THE UNEXPECTED SHUTDOWN HAPPENS ..WHY MY OTHER LAPTOP...


If the Computer restarts randomly, then the issue might be due to any damaged Operating System Files.
But, if the Computer shuts down randomly, it is due to the Processor.
All the Processors will be designed in such a way that, if there is any overheating issues, the Computer will shut down randomly.
The overheating might occur due to the malfunction of the Cooling Fan in the Computer.
As this is a overheating issue, it would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.
Replacing the Cooling Fan in the Computer should resolve the issue.

Toshiba laptop not getting power


To g_mart

Its sounds like either your power cord is fried, or you need to replace the power jack in your laptop. Unfortunatly, this is a common problem for toshiba's.

Hi i got Toshiba laptop with model no PSPA6A-01J017.The problem is it getting shutdown frequently.I also noticed it is getting too hot when it is operated contintuosly for couple of hrs. plz suggest me...


Hello,

It could either be caused by overheating or a low battery. If it happens when the laptop is plugged in to power. You can try a laptop cooler. You can see an example of one at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834999336. You can use others as long as they match the size of your lcd.

If it only happens when running on battery, you may need a new battery. You can check http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp and enter the information on the bottom of the laptop on the silver Toshiba Sticker. Specifically the line between Toshiba and the model number. You can enter that at the above support page.

Thanks
