Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

1 Answer

Does my Toshiba Satellite need a good battery to run on AC ?

Even if I have it on the AC it shuts down in about five minutes. The battery will not hold a charge. I checked the out the charger and it's putting the proper voltage. Any help would be appreciated--Thanks
Is there any place on line where I can get a inexpensive battery----
the cheapest one I found was $112.00

On rare occassions I have been able to revive a battery by putting it into the freezer overnight.

Otherwise you are stuck buying a new battery.

Have you checked ebay ?

Toshiba Satellite a205 Battery Will Not Charge


You did what all should not have been done. your battery works as a buffer between high surge of electricity which comes through electrical supply i.e. it protects your smps from burning up. From your current position it seems your smps fuse has blown. If they have given one or else your smps itself has gone. I'll tell you for your future usage of battery. Whenever you get any electronic equipment with chargable battery you should never switch it on unless and untill you have charged it for continuous 24 hours. Never try to run such equipment directly through dc or ac power. Hope your fuse has gone its not costly.

Hi there. This is not forced to work but you can give it a try. Perform a forced shutdown on the laptop by holding down the on/off button until it shuts down, then take the battery out and the AC power for 10 minutes, put it all back together and try again. Please let me know how you get on. Good luck

Blinking AC light with/without battery, computer shuts down


I want to try a very simple thing, cause it happened to me, while I am working on my computer , it shut down unexpectedly... cause the processor is working with its full performance and no enough cooling around the laptop. so while I move to other place and also I raise the laptop a little bit from the back to let the fans (bottom of the laptop) works perfectly .
try to open it again and do so.... may be it is a so simple thing that was far from your mind like I was before... good luck

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.
