Question about Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook

Laptop wont turn on

I have a toshiba equium a60 laptop. I havent used if for about 2 weeks and during this period it was on standby. When i came round to turning in on the other day it powered up for about a second and then switched off. Obviously the battery is now dead. However, when i plug the charger in, it does not charge and no lights on the machine turn on. There is not a problem with the charger because i tested it on another computer. Perhaps there is a problem where the charger connects to the back of the computer?? I really dont know!?!?

Re: Laptop wont turn on

You may check if the charger connection to the laptop is secured and doesn't have any problems. If the laptop doesn't show any sign of life,no led flashing, no nothing it is probably that your charge circuits or power on signal circuits are burned or broken. It sounds strange but they don't need a special motive to do that, they can simply die out. You will need your laptop dissasembled for this job and some knoledge of laptop electronics however. If you feel that this is not for you a service center can check the problem. Be carefull to specify exactly the simptoms you encounted. In worst case scenario they will asume your motherboard "dead" and propose a replecement. Be patient and try other service centers if this is the case.

How do I fing toshiba A60 equium password

pull the battery out and leave it out for a few minutes and then put it back in - if you can reach the bios then reset optimum settings - if there is a windows password then reformatting will get rid of that one.

My Toshiba wont turn on. I tried holding the power

Hi there, Your ac adapter is damaged & that's why power does not transfer in your notebook. The capacitor of adapter is burned & that's why the noise started. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Hi, i was carrying out a bios update on my toshiba equium A60 laptop. it dicided to freeze on me, i tried to turn the power off this didnt work i ended up removing the battery. when the battery was...

That does not sound good. If the Bios update was incompleted and the BIOS ROM was erased then the computer might be dead. You would need to take it to someone who can pull the bios chip and re-burn it using a device or burn the bios to a new chip and then install it. Whenever you are updating your bios you are taking a risk and that is why they tell you to only update when you are having computer problems. And never update a Laptop on battery powern alone. I am not saying that you did I am just giving advice.

This could be a few things. It could be a bad power cord not charging the battery or the machine. But it could also be various other things. The cheapest and easiest thing to try is a new power adapter.

This is a link to the download site for Toshiba drivers. Select the model of your laptop and click Go to retrieve a list of available drivers. Before doing this, however, you need to be certain of the model number of your laptop. Equium is the make of toshiba desktop computers and A60 is the model number for a Toshiba Satellite laptop. Look on the bottom of your laptop for a label that will have the exact model number you need then select that on the website.
