In the control panel, find the power management settings; it is probably set to Shutdown after 5 minutes, on battery. Change that setting to never. Actually, you can set them all to never.

I dont have the recovery disk for my toshiba m115 s1901 and i need to restore it to factory settings


Hi.

Try this:

1- Power off your computer.

2- Hold the zero (0) key while powering on your laptop.

You should see a recovery menu. Take the first choice.

WARNING: you must backup every pictures, music, documents before doing this. After recovery, all your data will be gone and your laptop will be just like when your bought it!

Hope this helps!

Tv black out on me and it stop working. No red power light.


My friend bought a Poloroid tv, similiar to yours. The power supply went bad 2 weeks after warranty expired; he had to pay to have a whole new power supply installed - roughly $250. Two weeks later my Toshiba (same age) won't turn on - no lights or anything. Same thing - power supply. Sounds like yours is in the same category. Hopefully you bought the extended warranty.

Issue with Power Cord...and maybe more?


Check the power rating on the new power cord and compare with the former.

Power down


I know the original post is over 2 years old but I had the same problem. Here's what happened:

8 months after buying my Toshiba A135 the battery began charging only intermittently. It also would not run without the battery. I put up with it for a month then took it back to Best Buy to get it repaired under warranty. They kept it over 2 weeks then gave it back saying it was the battery, which they replaced. One week later I had the same problem again. Back to Best Buy. The guy at the counter said it was probably the battery, they had encountered a lot of that. I said no, explained it, and gave it over to be fixed. 2 weeks later I got it back. They had reset the BIOS, no hardware replacement. I got it home and it was not fixed. I took it back the next day. They kept it 2 more weeks. They replaced the motherboard. I took it home and...you guessed it the same problem on the day I got it home!!! I took it back with one week left on my warranty. I don't remember what they replaced the last time but I think it was the motherboard again. I got it home (2 weeks later) and THE SAME PROBLEM on the day I got it home. So, the lesson there is that Best Buy computer maintenance SUCKS!!

I called Toshiba to try to get them to fix it for free, and out of warranty. After several frustrating minutes of conversation with an accented person who just kept telling me that my warranty was up, I hung up and called back and got an English speaking person. SHE was very helpful, listened to my problem, agreed to give me a one-time fix ticket. They paid for the postage. When I got my computer back it was mostly fixed.

The problem was the module at the back of the computer where the power cord plugs in. It was defective. They replaced it and it worked fine after that, except that when it goes into sleep mode it will not wake up. I fixed that by turning off all the sleep mode options. BTW, a friend of mine with the same computer is now having the same problem.
