Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S209 Notebook

Laptop Boots then shuts off

Normal 0 My laptop (Toshiba A75-S209) froze and I had to manuallyshut it off to restart it. When it restarted it came up with the blackscreen/white letters that reads:

''We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not startsuccessfully...etc...''

And it gave me options as to continue in ''Safe Mode'' and to continuenormally...I've tried each of the options and each one results in attempting toload Windows XP then a blue screen that flashes really quickly with white wordsbut my computer shuts off automatically, not giving me time to read any of it.It restarts on its own and does the same thing. I've tried not selectinganything and letting it ''start windows'' in its own ''in 30seconds''. And still it goes to the blue screen.

And then it says that it could be because ofhardware/software that's been unproperly downloaded or something and to makesure that it's downloaded correctly. But I can't get on the computer to dothat! (Keeps shutting off after that.).

I tried to reformat the HD but it shuts itself off over andover again. I am at a loss of what to do.

    I am not able to do this because the laptop shuts off. I boot the laptop to the CDrom and the recovery starts but the laptop turns itself off.

It's definately no RAM, it can look like it's in properly when it's not, don't be afraid of giving it a good push! Also check the fan is still working as it will switch off if it's over heating

The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start


Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

How do I get the battery out of my acer laptop


Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572

. I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.

I had a similar problem and I had to "Delete Volume" when in DIsk Management. I then had a choice to "Create Simple Volume" which I did, and then a wizard created the correct partitions and assigned a drive letter to my external drive. Everything was them OK.

Button keeps blinking


It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service

Take it back to the place of purchase and get a replacement as it is under warranty.
Do not try to fix it yourself as you may void your warranty.

Toshiba Satellite L15-S104, Model PSL10U-01X02F--A COMPLETE LEMON! 2-14-08 I purchased a Toshiba laptop in May 2005 at Best Buy in Montclair, California and all was good for a short time. Less than a year later I began to have so many problems. I took laptop to Best Buy Geek Squad and the hard drive had to be replaced! I had an extended warranty, so not any cost to me. I continued to have problems with the laptop and in took my laptop back to the Geek Squad in January 2008 and was told the laptop needed a motherboard at the cost of over $600! The warranty had ended. I have called Toshiba apx 4 times and finally given to a case manager and left on hold each time from 10 to 17 minutes! I have left messages and not anyone has returned my call. I have requested that my laptop be replaced. Christine Honea-Takata CHoneaTakata@msn.com Ever since I bought my laptop in December of 2004, I've had nothing but problems. My laptop overheats and shuts down repeatedly, the screen freezes, my sound only works 75% of the time, etc, etc. I have a stack of paperwork from the Geek Squad for numerous repairs - they've replaced everything at least once, some parts multiple times. They finally told me it was a lemon and that they were sending it in so that I could get a new lap top....6 weeks later I hadn't heard anything and called them - the usual waiting on the line, talking to 4 different people, them saying they'll call me back. A few days later I still hadn't heard back from them so I called again - same run around. They then told me that my lap top wasn't a lemon and that there was nothing they could do for me. I bought an extended warranty (3 years) and it's been in every few months - also meaning I'm without my blimmin' lap top for at least 2 weeks at a stretch. After my warranty ran out, I "gave up"...what more could I possibly do? The machine was a lemon from the start but Toshiba won't own up to anything. However, I know there was a class action law suit filed...haven't heard anything about it for the past year or so. I wouldn't touch a Toshiba with a ten foot pole. Terribly disappointed, angry and frustrated. I've lost huge amounts of data and had nothing but problems with customer service.
