Does that happen without the battery? Is the battery a EXACT, (Voltage, Amperage) replacement. Some inexpensive aftermarket batteries are inferior and don't play well with your laptop. They are cheap for a reason and COULD be a fire hazzard. Is it the laptop that sparks, or the cord/charger when you plug it in?

Laptop black screen crash


I would guess you have a faulty power lead. They're not usually too expensive to replace - about 20 pounds in the UK. I'd try this as soon as possible as you don't want to damage your PC with a faulty power supply.

My laptop keeps switching on and straight back off


This had happened to my Laptop also. This might be due to battery damage or some internal short circuit in battery terminals. Try with other battery if it works fine then replace the battery if you have warranty.

Hi, how to resolve ibm thinkpad t43p on startup with black screen


It could be a faulty battery. Remove the battery & try to power up the laptop.
If the laptop did not power up after removing the battery, then notice the power receptacle where you plug the power adapter's cord to the laptop. While plugging the power cord in, notice if there is a spark occurring at the power receptacle. If the spark occurs, then disconnect internal drives & connectors one at a time until subsystem with short is identified. If power input still a short with bare motherboard, replace the motherboard. If the spark did not occur, then inspect the boards for burnt or melted components, cold solder on DC jack, open connections, or unseated cards.

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

On start up my computer says rtc battery is low or cmos checksum is inconsistent. Press (f1) key to set date/time. I press f1 but nothing happens. blank screen. I can press ctrl alt del and it will restart...


Your RTC battery or CMOS battery is either dead or too low to keep the correct settings, windows will not operate correctly without the proper date and time kept. This battery has to be replaced for your system to operate. Below is the service manual that will advise you of the proper procedure to replace the battery. Once the battery is replaced, reboot the laptop, go to the BIOS screen and reset the date and time, then reboot as normal. In the case of your particular laptop, the laptop has to be disassembled down to the lower case and motherboard. The included service manual has the procedure for this.

Toshiba 215 laptop on, the screen simply reads "Toshiba Innovatio


Hi,
This is a motherboard or BIOS issue.
Remove the adapter and the battery, turn the laptop over and locate the RAM (memory) cover and unscrew it, it will look similar to this >>>
fc5ac1f.jpeg
take out the RAM and clean the contacts and the slots, then reseat the RAM making sure they/it clips into place properly and replace the cover.
You can now try booting the laptop to see if it gets further than the splash screen.

If there's still no joy you may have to remove the CMOS battery (small battery inside the computer), keep it out for 10 minutes, then put it back. (this battery might need replacing)

Here is a complete guide to disassembling the laptop and if you scroll to the bottom of the page you will where the CMOS battery is >>>>

Laptop dark screen


The laptop will reduce screen brightness when on battery to reduce the battery consumption. It should happen every time. You can adjust brightness with the fn+f10 but it will be dimmer when running on battery.
