Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S211 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop will not stay powered.

I have a toshiba satellite that started to occasionally not charge the battery and ultimately shut down because it wasn't able to be powered with the AC cord. This would occur with no movement of the laptop or power cord at all. I could leave it working find for hours only to return and find that it had powered off on sometimes back on again. It went from that to just powering for 10 seconds and back off again.

    My lap top stays on about 25 seconds with the fan running and then shuts off. This is with the ac cord attached.

How long does it stay on for? I had a similar problem. Mine would stay on for 10min then shut down. It ended up being an excessive build-up of dust around the cooling fan. If your problem is similar its worth taking a look at. Good luck, Todd

Shut down computer but some lights stay on


Your are not "shutting down" the laptop. It is going into "Stand-by" mode.

#1:
When you want to shut down,
select [Start]
then select "Shut down" and not "Stand-by"

The power button will also work.
#2:
When you want to shut down,
Press the power button and nothing else.
The laptop will log you OFF and "shut down"

The fans run but the computer fails to turn on


Likely either a bad power connector (common) or the charging circuit on the motherboard may have a problem.

Toshiba satellite m35 power issues


Hi !
While power off, disconnect the power adaptor.
Take off battery.

Plug the power adaptor back and try to start !
Is it running?

If yes, than the power adaptor is OK.

Now shut down and disconnect the power adaptor.
Put back your battery and start!
Leave it untill you 'empty' the battery.
Do not start your laptop.

Plug the power adaptor and do not start your laptop yet.
Is there a led idicator showing that the battery is charging ?
Does it shows when the battery is full charged (e.g. red/yellow=charging, to green/off charged)?
If not, leave it for at least 3 hours. After that, start your laptop (adaptor is plugged) and see if you still have an icon saying charging 99%.

If that is the case, then something is wrong with the battery.

Check your warranty, and replace it.
DO NOT OPEN the battery - nothing interesting you will find inside - nothing you can do !

Regards.

Always running on batteries


You can still use your laptop even if you take out the battery and run on ac alone. You can also leave your battery in with the ac plugged in for 4 hours to charge it even if the laptop is off. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Toshiba Satellite 2410-PS241L laptop does not start.


Plug it into the electrical outlet and then turn on your laptop. if it comes on and works fine, then your battery is just simply dead, and if it will charge, just needs to charge. If not, then you are going to have to replace your battery. But assuming all of this is true, and your laptop will power on when using your electrical outlet, then yes, feel free to use it whenver you like when plugged in.

Toshiba Satellite A135 laptop


Try disconnecting power adapter and removing battery for two minutes. If the laptop still does not boot then there is an hardware problem. You can try taking out and putting back ram modules, but my suggestion is to take the laptop at a repair shop, if you cannot fix it by removing battery.
