Hi, I have a 6month old Toshib Equium L40-156 laptop running Vista Home Premium. Whenever I shut the laptop down without the AC cable connected (just running on the battery) everything shuts down fine however, when I try shutting vista down while on AC power, the laptop shuts down correctly and the power light goes off but after apprx 3 seconds the power light comes back on and the laptop starts up again.
I tried installing SP1 to see if that would fix the problems but it has not. I have also check the power button commands and all are set to shut down the laptop. In addition, I have also unchecked the automatic restart option in the 'Startup & Recovery' section but nothing has workied.
Thanks in advance.
I have the exact same issue, runnning Vista 32bit. I tried messing with the BIOS and power management settings, but nothing has worked. I had a power surge before this problem began so that may explain things, but I have no way to verify if it is a hard or software issue.
I have the same problem with my Toshiba too, prima facie, it looks like Toshiba and Vista don't make a good combo. I suspected this to be a pure hardware problem, but was disproven when I booted in safe mode. It does not have any problems with the AC Power on in Safe mode.

Open the Control Panel, select Power Options, select High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, Under Plugged In, set time to Turn Off Display, set Put the Computer to Sleep to Never, select Change Advanced Power Settings, scroll through the settings , click on the + at Power buttons and Lid, set to shut down, Sleep and Hibernate to Never, adjust the rest to your preference. When you are not using the Laptop ALWAYS shut down and unplug to prevent damage due to power surges.
Will the external drive work on another computer? Has the external drive been dropped, bumped, jarred? If it works on another computer, shut down the Win7 laptop, unplug, remove battery, remove the USB external plug, plug into AC, reboot, when it is finished, plug in USB.
OpenControl Panel, Power settings, Advanced Power settings, change SLEEP to Never, Hibernate to never. Shut down and unplug, if you use mostly on AC, remove battery, your laptop when not in use. It will last longer, if there is a power surge not be damaged, and a reboot every day resets the computer.
hi this product key will not work with the windows 7 , the product key that is under the laptop is for vista, that will not work you will have to ask your friend for the key they used for the windows 7 CD you have borrowed...
