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.

I have a toshiba satellite pro, i use for a 2 days and then it never turn on again. i try everything still not coming on. i need help please its a seccond hand laptop.


Try removing the battery and using just the power supply first, if this works then it is a battery fault, is that doesnt work then try another power suppy or get your power supply tested, if not either of these, then it may be the PSU connector inside the laptop

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S6816 series laptop. I fell asleep watching a DVD one night - when I woke up the next morning everything was dead. I took it to a store where they said that all power...


Please confirm if the laptop was running with or without the battery adapter when you were playing the DVD.

Take the battery out from the laptop and start with the battery adapter connected and see if you see any activity.

Laptops don't die like that.

My charger does not power up my Toshiba Satellite A305, is it the motherboard?


Have you tried running it without the battery?
  • If this works, then the battery has died. Replace it or run on p/s alone.
  • If not, and the power supply is definitely working, then the laptop itself needs repair.

IHAVE A Toshiba Satellite A55-S1063 keeps cutting


Without seeing the offending Lappie, with your discription, and operational squeezing, suggest your ram housing connection is faulty, requiring a little (SuperGlue) Joke!. Might work.?

Seriously are the ram chips located properly in their sockets?

If yes, then you are looking at a repair job if super don't work?. Also possibility that the ram card has a hairline crack?

Computer cant read drivers after isntalling new HD


Computer sounds fine, CD sounds dead! Try copying the drivers onto a new CD using another computer & try them in the laptop again. The drivers may be Vista-specific anyway, so try downloading XP drivers from Toshiba website.

When you say you turn it on, do any of the lights on the laptop light up? Does it make any beeps?

Have you done anything to your laptop or has anything happened that you think might have caused this?

Start off by simplifying your setup as much as possible to eliminate any outside influences.

Remove anything plugged into the laptop. Then unplug power and remove the battery. With battery out and power disconnected, hold down the power switch 15 seconds (this can clear out a corrupt BIOS).

Reconnect only AC power and try to power up. Verify your AC power has a power light lit up and all connections are snug.

If no go, try only with the battery and no AC.

Still no go, remove battery and any removable drive (CD, DVD, etc.). Connect AC power and retry boot.

If you feel comfortable removing the hard drive, remove it and retry boot.

If all drives are out, all external and internal devices removed and still no display, try removing the memory and putting it back in (reseating it).

Let me know if that helps or if you need further help.

Laptop won't run on ac power and keeps shutting down


Check that the AC power works, go to a repair shop and test a different one or have voltages checked with a multimeter.

If the AC adapter is fine, then it is usuall because AC socket solder joints on laptop are broken. In this case , it is a delicate repair, and must be done by an expert repairman.

Toshiba satellite wireless help


If it is brand new is should really go back to the supplier. But out on the Net it seems you are not alone. one chap suggested getting the driver frm the maker. Create a system restore point before installing and if it works fine create another.
