Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

1 Answer

Toshiba satelite A100 rejects AC... often.

Hi, my computer has a habit of working some days and not others. There seems to be a pettern in that when using the laptop on battery alone it wont recharge using the AC adapter nor will it run on a second fully charged battery.... just to clarify (for my benefit) I'm using the laptop plugged in to the AC, if I disconnect the AC or turn off the computer it wont reboot. If I leave it on just the batter and it runs out it wont take the AC. If I remove the battery and get it going on just the AC its fine till I turn it off then it wont reboot again. This usually last for around 24 hours then it seems to take the AC again.

I have swapped AC power packs, purchased new a battery but its still the same problem happens. Anyone have an answer or like problem?

Just to humor me, are you using any peripherals with your laptop when this happens, such as a wireless mouse, USB connections such as digital cameras? Try to take these away when recharging.

There seems to be 2 issues here.
1) Recharing batteries: To prepare the batteries for long-term use (I do not know how long you've had the batteries...try draining the batteries (both of them), and then recharging it to full 2x before using them without the AC Adapter. This should clear the problem.

2) AC Adapter only works every other day: When you swapped the power pack, was it with a new AC adapter, or another used one? Also, have you tried using a different outlet than the one you normally use? Let me know how this turns out.

Toshiba satelite A100 no power at all


The ac power pack may be faulty, check it with a multimeter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage printed on the label on the power pack.
If you can borrow another working ac power pack (has to be the same as the ac power pack), test it on the laptop.
Also reseat the RAM modules and the hard disk and see if it boots up.
If it is a bin job remove the hard drive, if the hard drive is OK, put it into an USB drive case and use it as an external hard drive.
