Toshiba Satellite A100-233 is not powering up


Welcome to Fixya.

Here are the things that you can try for troubleshooting a "No power" issue :
  • Remove all connections from the laptop (including all USB cords, ac adapter)
  • Carefully remove the battery and set it aside
  • Press and hold down on the power button for at least 10 seconds
  • Plug the AC adapter back (without the battery) and test the machine
  • If it works,then try to power it again with the battery this time
For your convenience, here's the link for Toshiba's support in case you need to contact them for warranty repair options :

How to repair my satellite lap top computer, which became suddenly black? and I re-started lap top and nothing happened


It would be impossible to diagnose your problem without more information.
You may need to take it to a repair shop.
Is your battery faulty?
Are there any lights on the laptop when yopu plug it in?
Have you checked the fuse in the power adapter?

We have a Toshiba Satellite lap top. It was working about an hour ago, when we down loaded a BIOS upgrade from 1.4 to 1.5. After the down load and reboot the lap top now has a black screen with no wording....


BIOS updates sometimes cause the motherboard to revert to its default configuration. I recommend that you go into the BIOS setup and examine the Boot Devices and Boot Order to make sure that your hard drive is selected as the first boot device.

Good luck!

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.

TOSHIBA LAP TOP


If you move your laptop screen to were it works sometimes and doest work other, it sounds like it could have a loose connection in the ribbon cable. Most laptop lcd screens are connected to the main board through a brown looking ribbon cable. if this cable has become loosened, then yes it can be a DIY type job.

if you attempt to take the laptop apart, i sugguest you keep a record of what type screws go where.

Good luck!
