Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

1 Answer

My laptop (Toshiba Satellite A100) won't power on. It generally has temperature issues, either overheating or not turning on due to excessively cold temperatures. However, this time the laptop has been in room temperature for over 2 hours. It was working fine when I last had it on, which was earlier today.

Okay, sorry to disappoint you, but you may have a faulty motherboard. You have a nVidia GeForce Go 7600 video card, which are prone to heat issues, resulting in failure. Dell and HP have been recalling laptops with the 7 and 8 series GPUs.

Call up Toshiba, and even if you are out of warrenty, tell them that the video card on your motherboard is bad. Educate yourself here before calling though:

Make sure they know that its a universal issue that they need to address themselves.

When i power my toshiba laptop how do i test my power inverter or back lite


The plastic frame in front of the LCD screen is the Display Bezel.
The screen Inverter is mounted at the bottom of the Screen Frame.

[The LCD screen is an assembly of layers. There is a metal frame resembling a picture frame; which keeps these layers in the factory set alignment; the Screen Frame ]

Therefore easy access. Just remove Display Bezel.

To test a screen Inverter requires a sensitive multimeter; read fairly expensive,

http://www.fonerbooks.com/test.htm

Due to the above, ease of access to replace, and generally low cost; the screen Inverter is just replaced.

Then on to the Backlight if this doesn't repair the problem.

Which brings me to this;

Safety

The Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook PC, uses a single CCFL for a Backlight.

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. (Bulb)
Similar to it's larger 'cousins' used in homes, and businesses; but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average thickness is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height.
View the last 8 photos,

This means it is Highly breakable. Costs more in money to just replace the entire LCD screen, (Which has the Backlight built-in),
but cheaper when you compare to life, and limb.

Jus sayin'.

Satellite L500 monitor is completely black. One can faintly see the welcome and password bars


Hi,
Try to go to Toshiba Power Settings in the control panel and change the lcd brightness from there. If this won't work, this may be an LCD backlight issue and you would need to have a professional to change it for you. If it is under warranty, send it to toshiba for replacement.
Hope this helps.

Problem: A100 flashing Amber light but won't turn


Check your charger. It seems to indicate low batery and the charger may not work or the power socket has a faulty connection. Check for phisical damage in the power socket of you laptop.
Try to twist it or even push it in a bit while trying to switch on. Try also to remove the baterry and use the charger power supply only.
If nothing happens its very likely to be the charger.

My Toshiba m205 4806 shuts down spontaneously. The lap top feels warm but the fan is running. any suggestions?


The cpu get overheated and will shtdown to protect it. The fan continues to run until a CPU safe temperature is reached / sustained.

1. Use laptop on flat surface, not on pillow, carpet, bed, etc. that will restrict air flow. Using a can of compressed air, clear the air vents.

2. If the symptom continues, then the heat conductive paste between the cpu chip and the heatsink is no longer effective (hardened, too thin, etc.). Remove the heatsink and add thermal paste

Toshiba Satellite A100 LE4000 Turns Off Randomly


there must be still a problem with your current cooling system. try cleaning up your laptops fan. cpu gets heated up very easily even if you turned it off for a while. you can do this by unscrewing the parts, the inside must be pretty dusty or something. this also happened to me but from a different unit.

also, try checking for the latest bios driver for your laptop and to be sure, download it on toshiba site itself. because latest drivers for your bios also manages the control of your cpu fans.

if you could also get access to your systems cooling options in bios, try checking if your cpu's temperature are doing fine.

but i prefer you cleaning up the inside fans as well. hope this helps.

Laptop monitor goes black


If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

I hope this helps.
