Toshiba Laptop A205-S4577 won't start up

My niece has a Toshiba A205-S4577 that will not start up. It is only 1 1/2 years old. She purchased a new charger which did not help. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Thanks, I will try that. She took it in a store and they said the battery was good, if I do find one and it doesn't work, do you have any additional suggestions?

If the battery is removed, it should still start up with the charger connected. A lot of laptops develope problems with the jack where the power supply plugs in, from constantly plugging & unplugging the charger. The jack in the back of the computer is probably bad.

If the problem is not about the charger, it is most certainly about the battery. It would be good if you could find a replacement battery just to try it out. If computer works, than you can be sure where is the problem.

    I am afraid no, since then it is an internal problem with the hardware. You might take it to the repair store so they can check out what's wrong. If you have a warranty, that's even better.

My toshiba laptob Model # A205 S4577 freezee in between 20minutes i have shown to my friend he said the has to be replaced and even some part is burning at a point where you place your charger in your...


That part costs just $5. The labor to install it will cost about $200. But if the plastic of the board on which the charger port is fitted has been damaged by the burning circuit then it can't be replaced or repaired - the laptop is indeed dead. The laptop will have to be opened to see if that is the case - that will cost you $50 at a pc repair shop.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A205-S4577 and it just won't power on at all. I was told that it might be the board how do I purchase a motherboard?


Dear Friend,
Try this first!. Removed the battery and plug the power, press the power button. If nothing happens, unplug the power supply and press the power button for about 30 seconds (assuming that you have removed all power source, battery and power supply).
If none of this worked, try another battery. Most of the time some brands required presence of battery in order to operate. If not, may sure that your power supply is providing you with adequate power (grab a multimeter and test it, if you know how to)
Good Luck!!!
