Toshiba Satellite 1135-S125 front LED indicators gone weird

Hi, Recently, my Toshiba laptop was plugged in to AC power, without the battery installed, when we had a brief power outage. When my daughter turned the computer back on, the on-off and battery LED indicators (which were green) turned amber. The battery indicator was lit, even though the battery was not installed. And the CD-ROM indicator light remains lit all the time, even when there is no disc in the drive. Did something get fried when the power outage happened? Is there some setting I can change that can return the LEDs to normal? Or is there a board that needs to be replaced? It's not a critical problem - the laptop still works fine and the strange operation of the LEDs doesn't seem to interfere with anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

As you said that the Green light turned Amber, and the battery indicator was on, i would recommend that you Power Flea your laptop i.e. do nopt connect the battery/adapter to your laptop and keep on pressing the Power switch for almost 10-25 secs. This is because of some static charge built up. Try it and lemme know...

Hi The strange operation of those LED's is most probably an error mode indicator. If a laptop fails to power on corectly it will use those LED's, lighting in a specific pattern to signal the error. That's an example. In your case something was damaged in some way because the error code indicator is still acting like there is an error. You may try to reset the BIOS to factory defaults (small chances that this will work) and leave the laptop unpowered for about 1 day. If the problem is still there you will need to have it fixed in a service center. By comparing the LED lighting pattern with information from the Toshiba service catalogs they will be able to tell you what kind of error had happen for wich the LED's to light in this manner. Sorry for my bad english, I live in a non-english speaking country. Good luck and don't forget to rate any answer received from this site.

Removing the hdd in my toshiba 1135-s125

OK, This is a big undertaking if you are completely new.

1st, if you can get a static guard wrist band - great!
2nd You will be dealing with plenty of screws so keep track

In Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked. Here are some examples:
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long


I have .a Toshiba Satellite 1135-S155. It should be a similar configuration, same family/1135-S1xx series.

You will have to remove a total of 9 Phillips screws.

Place the underside of the PC up.
Disconnect all power, cables and Battery from Laptop
The first screw is located just under the Toshiba Serial Number / Bar codes, just above where the DVD/CD-ROM combo drive is located.
Mine is labeled (F5). Unscrew it and place in a safe place.
Pull DVD/CD-ROM combo drive out it is an assembly.

The Hard Drive is located under the DVD/CD-ROM combo drive.
The Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is enclosed within a caddy containing the remaining eight screws.

There are four screws holding the caddy rails to the Laptop and four screws holding the rails, caddy and Hard Drive as an assembly.
Unscrew and place in a safe place/ container they are small. Disassemble the HDD from caddy assembly; place your HD in the caddy and reassembly.

Here is another Toshiba HDD access that is slightly more
straightforward than my 1135 series
So you get an idea of where a HDD is visually:


Above is a photo of the Battery sliding out

Below is the Hard Drive Removal


I hope this gives you an idea of how to go about it for your
particular Laptop
