Loss of system time

My daughter owns a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6300. The internal clock resets as do other things when she unplugs the AC adapter and shuts it down. I assume this means a new battery is needed, the little one that keeps the "bios" running correctly. She had the motherboard replaced with a good one about 4-5 years ago, so it is probably not the motherboard issue.

Where can I buy a new battery?

    Those batteries were full laptops, not RTCs/CMOS.

    I am pretty sure the Model is a Satellite Pro 6300. I have found RTC batteries for 6100's. I will check tonight.

Confuse the function of the laptop adapter Toshiba satellite pro

The AC Adapter has to be used which is compatible with the particular model of the Notebook. You can refer the User Manual came with the Notebook to know the exact model number of the AC Adapter. To confirm whether the AC Adapter is working or not you can check the LED light of the AC Adapter, if the LED is glowing then it is working fine.

The function of the AC Adapter is to charge the Battery of the Notebook.

You can also use the Notebook by connecting the AC Adapter while it is charging or when it is fully charged.

TOSHIBA SATELLITE PRO L300: PSLBDG : PROBLEMS: 1) Restarts automatically when i plug in the power cord. However works fine in Battery. 2) Shuts down when i try to install graphics driver after a clean...

Replace the AC Adapter, (ebay from £10.00).
Did it come with XP on it? Mine came with Vista and there are conflicts with XP and graphic adapters. There is no XP driver for the ATI adapter in mine.
Go online to Toshiba and download all of the updated drivers that you require. A user friendly system.

It doesnt turn on but when i plug the adaptor charger the orange light blinks. but theres no display on the screen

I need to know how this thing behaves:

unplug the laptop from your ac adapter. remove battery. plug in your ac adapter - now the power LED should show a green. now if you turn it on, and the power LED blinks orange (amber) - you have a bad motherboard.

these are older units (the 4300's are 600mhz, 650mhz, and 700mhz for 12", 14", AND 15" screens, respectively). Your best bet is to buy something comparable on eBay, and do the swap yourself. These systems (and motherboards) have been spectacularly reliable, and used, incomplete systems are practically being given away on eBay for a pittance... That's how I'd approach it.

My daughters Toshiba satellite l505d will not boot up correctly. It starts but then nothing happens. What do I need to do. Have already taken battery out and restarted. Any help would be helpful.

Try the following.
1. Remove battery and plug in the AC Adapter and check if it works
If yes - Battery is defective
If no - Motherboard Problem/AC adapter

2. Check the AC adapter LED indicator if its lighted or not(double check by a multitester)
If lighted - it works properly
if not - replace
3. Try to reinstall WINDOWS operating system by the use of the installer CD
4. Reformat your computer and install necessary drivers and applications

Thanks. Cheers!

Toshiba Satellite laptop does not power - no blue light to recogn

You should NEVER see sparks when connecting the AC adapter.

If you are seeing that there is damage in either the adapter, the AC plug or both although I would suspect internal damage in the plug.

Unless your handy with a sauldering iron I think this would be a good point to take it to a pro, they can test the AC adapter with a voltmeter and confirm or deny my suspicion. If I'm wrong the voltmeter will show wrong voltage for the unit, if I'm right it will be in tolerance and you'll know the AC plug is the most likely culprit.

Depending on the model and the repair shop these typically cost about $100-$200 to repair.

Toshiba satellite a215-s7422 laptop wil not turn on

It sounds like the motherboard is bad. There is no power being sent to the fan and that means that somewhere in the the mother board is not sending the info.

Worked fine yesterday, today zilch !!

One computer I fixed had its internal power regulation confused. With the AC adapter plugged in, holding the power switch down for twelve seconds, then pressing it again, switched it back on. This sort of problem can come from a variety of causes, though. There is an internal power distribution chip which could have received a static electric shock or power surge and gotten cooked. The RAM could have gone bad. The socket where the adapter plugs into the computer could have been cracked loose. Check the power switch and then RAM first, and write more if that doesn't fix it.
