Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
Green charger light is on and orange battery light but will not start
Posted by Anonymous on
There are three possible reasons why it's acting like that.
1. Defective AC Adapter or Power cord
2. Defective Motherboard
3. Defective Battery
First off, you need to isolate the part which causing the issue. Please follow the following steps:
1. Remove the battery and use the power cord alone in powering up your computer. If it goes well, then you need to replace the battery. If no go, then try using a different known good outlet.
2. Check the AC Adapter (the box) if there's a light lit. If it's green, then it's should be working fine. If it's amber or nothing at all, then there's a problem with it. You might need to replace that.
3. If the AC ADapter looks good, then try to wiggle the cord so that you can check if the cord is properly connected to the computer. Usually, cords get loose and it causes problems. If it has this kind of problem, then you need to get a technician to check that for you because you might need to buy a new motherboard for that.
Please do the above simple steps, and let me know if anything happens. I hope this can solve the issue.

Try removing the battery and reinsertit.
Or perhaps the on/off button is damaged .... (any shocks recently ?! ) Or there could be a more serious hardware issue...go on toshiba site maybe u'll find some info there ....

SOURCE: wont turn on
you have one of 3 things wrong here.
1:) the battery is dead, and needs to be replaced ( suggest e-bay china seller for cheapest )
2:) the AC adaptor or dc socket on the motherboard is Faulty.
3:) motherboard fault, regarding charging circuit board.
Go for the most cost effective option First. New Battery. Then AC Adaptor. Finally would be motherboard replacement.

Can you hear the hard drive spinning with clicking sounds? Have you tried booting from a floppy disk? Even if you don't have a boot floppy, try putting any floppy disk in the drive, then turn the computer on. You should see and error message "not a boot disk, change and restart" or similar. If you get that error, then the boot sequence is working, that's good. If you don't, that's bad. Probably a bad motherboard. If you don't hear the hard drive spinning, that's bad, too. Means a dead hard drive. But at least you can replace the HD.
