Irregular power supply to toshiba satellite M100 laptop

Dear Sir,

I am experiencing irregular power supply to my toshiba laptop. The battery will not fully charge even after plugging to the main power supply. Worst of all, the laptop has become very unpredictable and will shut down even though it is connected to the main power socket. but after a couple of hours, or even days, it comes back on again when I plug it in. How can I check whether the problem is linked to the battery or the power adapter or the motherboard? Thank you.

    I have tried your suggestion and the problem persists. I have even plug in the laptop direct to the main power supply without the battery and the same problem happen - it boots up but after a while, goes off again. I suspect the main problem could lie in the power supply adapter. I just disconnected the power cable from the adapter and reconnected it - the laptop power indicator turns on again. How can I check whether the power adaptor is working properly? My laptop battery is more than 2 years old.

Toshiba M100 upgraded to Windows 7, i have just renewed the battery but i have a problem with th laptop not charging, info says it is plugged in but not charging, power adaptor is ok. the power charge...


Hello,

When you say you renewed the battery, does that mean you replaced the battery with a new one? If your system is not charging up, try a different wall outlet. If that does not work, try a new power cord and lastly, a new battery.

After you have ruled out these three pieces of hardware, and you still have the problem, you would want to contact Toshiba for repairs as you are left with a malfunction on the laptop itself. Alternatively, you can contact a local computer repair shop.

Regards,

Bios password for toshiba satellite M100


You can reset the BIOS password. To do that read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper and I wouldn't recommend doing it especially if it's under warranty.

Noise from power supply


Hello obs1,
It appears you have a faulty ground from where you plug into the power outlet. You may need to invest in a better surge protector or try another power outlet.

You should upgrade your RAM memory. Check with the owners manual and purchase RAM module. Install the RAM module in the memory slot provided at the bottom of your laptop.
