Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Toshiba Satellite L30/L35 starts to run then stops with a click sound then starts again. It does this over and over again.

I got the laptop up and running with the battery. First I took the memory out again and put it back in. Finally the toshiba cpr came on. Later a warning popped up saying to plug in the adapter "battery low". But when I plugged the power cord in the power light is orange instead of green. Is my adapter bad? Could this be causing my start up problems?

The orange light means the battery is low.
Normally the clicking is the hdd trying to find its files and it will crash from time to time if faulty.
Replace the hdd.

SOURCE: Compaq V2000 overheats at power-in plug.

Sounds like the power jack has a short and needs to be replaced.If it melted the ac adapter tip then its a ground problem in the power jack or where it connects to the mother board.

I had the same problem on my CQ60. HP battery test showed one or more cells not working. After spending about 2 hours talking to some guy in India,or somewhere, he came to the conclusion that my battery was bad. HP sent me a new battery, which fixed the problem.

A friend of mine gave me his laptop to see what was wrong with it... It powers up but the screen stays blank and the cd/dvd drive light comes on and stays on. The drive wont open. And the fan wont turn on....


Hi, sounds like his friend has put the wrong memory chip in this machine. I would put the old memory chip back in, and then check with the Toshiba website for the correct upgrade.

Why the screen of x205-sli1 off when power on?


If there are 3 beeps when you power on, most probable it is because of the memory.
Steps for Troubleshooting

Note:remove any source of power first ...

1. Try removing the memory
2. Clean the memory using a white pencil eraser
3. Boot up the laptop without the memory
- You will hear a beep not like the 3 beeps you heard.
4. Turn off the computer again and put back the memory.
5. Then try booting up again.

Hope it helps.

Toshiba satellite a205-s5804 laptop will not start


Hi, there are a couple of possibilities:
1. If you are able to start the laptop on battery then the dc connector on the motherboard may be broken or have come loose, in which case take it in for repair.
2. The power switch may be broken, again take it in for repair.
3. Tip of the trade: Disconnect the battery and plug in the charger, see if it will switch on. If not then put the battery back in with the mains still plugged in and see whether it springs back to life.
4. Tip of the trade 2: Leave well alone for a couple of days without any battery or power connected then plug back in and see if it will switch on.
Removing the BIOS memory, don't know where you saw that but not recommended at all unless you want to render your laptop completely useless. Don't attempt to strip down unless you are technically experienced with disassembling a laptop.

Acer Aspire 5600 wont turn on.


Ther is only one thing that you have not tried I think. Try to remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard for about 15 minutes and reconnect it. It's a small lithium battery.

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.
