Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

When I turn on the power to my laptop, tries to turn on but dies

My Toshiba Satellite was working just fine then all of the sudden whenever I press the power button the power light lights up for about 2 seconds, the laptop sounds like its starting up but it just dies immediately. After about 1 or 2 seconds.  I was thinking it could be my battery but even when its plugged in it happens.  Its only a year old laptop.  I thought it could be the power cord but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with it physically.
Anyone have any idea what this could be?  Could the motherboard be dead?

Hi,
According to me, you should check your power adapter. I think it is not working and is not producing sufficient power supply for your laptop. And due to this, your laptop have not been charging.

Why Toshiba Satellite A665 Laptop won't start?


Have you tried pressing space bar (maybe its in hibernation mode) ?

or try holding power button for a few seconds (10) then turn it back on.

as a last resort you could try take the battery out, disconnect it from the power adapter, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then place the battery back in and the power adapter and try powering it on?

Toshiba Satellite L300 shuts down when ac power plugged in


How about this step, try to turn off the laptop itself. Remove the cables and battery just like what you did before, then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Then, reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and then turn on the computer itself. If the laptop restarts, shuts down or freezes with the AC power cables, two things that you should seriously consider. It might be the power cable itself, AC cable port or the circuitry going to the motherboard. And since you have cleaned out the fan and heat sink, you have isolated that problem. Have you plug-in another power cable on your laptop? If yes, then check if it works. Otherwise, the main issue is that the AC port is loose or the circuitry of AC adapter going to the motherboard is not not working. You can re-open the unit and check the circuitry from the AC port going to the motherboard. You may check the circuitry from AC port to the power supply if it is ok. If symptom persist, please contact your local dealer...

Toshiba Satellite P205d S7479 shuts down suddenly when on battery. The battery is brand new.


Try to turn off the laptop
Remove cables and battery on the pc
Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds
reinsert battery and cables on the laptop
Turn on the laptop

Check if the PC still shuts down. If it is, try to connect the power cable without the battery. If it turns on, call your pc manufacturer to replace the battery....

Suddenly my Toshiba Satellite A205 laptop died. No power.


First, check your power supply (the adapter). Is it putting out the required voltage to charge the battery?
If not, then you might have a dead battery and no way to charge it.
If the power supply is working and when you turn on the computer you get no lights, then you're probably looking at a new motherboard.
If you get startup lights and hear the fan, then it's getting power and you might have a video problem. But it sounds like, from what you wrote, there is no activity at all when you try to start it. That would be the power circuit on the motherboard, most likely.
