Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Toshiba A305-S6857 and will it will not stay on. I've disconnected all hardware and it won't stay on then either. I replaced the motherboard/processor/CPU and that didn't help either. I try to install Vista off the disk but the machine shuts off at any given point during the process. Sometimes I can boot normally but after the boot animation there's just a black screen and the cursor until a blue screen comes up that I haven't been able to fully read before it shuts off. Thanks for your time!

Hi Luke Haag,

This is a common problem we see in the shop. However, you've gone to extreme in troublshooting! My guess is a component is overheating, and since you didn't mention the Ram, I would replace that and see what happens. Also, is the system taking and holding a charge? If the battery is bad, or the power-adaptor isn't delivering electricity to the battery/board, it may eb shutting off simply because there is no more power.

Please check those things and let me know how it turns out.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Black screen w/blinking cursor

So.. you can select safe mode? Or you turn it on and it is resuming into the blank screen?

If the latter. Unplug the power, pull the battery out for 20 seconds or so. Then put it all back together and try booting up.

SOURCE: hp pavillion dv9000 won't boot. tries to start,

There is a Limited Enhancement Program that includes this model. If you are in the US call 1-800-474-6836. If you are outside US check the HP.com website and search for the Limited warranty enhancement Program.
This is normally a video chipset issue that is embedded in your MB. If your notebook is part of the program, hp will shoulder the repair cost for the MB replacement.

My A305-S6857 freeze every time when I tried to login. I cannot access to my desktop.


Try doing a startup repair by pressing F8 repeatedly on startup. On the options menu, choose 'repair my computer'. If this isn't successful you can try running your antivirus software in safe mode to check for any infections. Press F8 as before and choose safe mode. If this works, you can also check your event viewer to see if there are any system errors recorded: control panel>system and security>administrative tools>event viewer. Expand the critical and error menus under 'summary of administrative events' You can double click on an event for further detail and the event ID which may help you troubleshoot the problem further.

It works good on battery but when AC adaptor is plug in the laptop cuts out and restart by itself.


Problem description: The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause: 1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.
Toshiba Satellite A305 AC Adapter
If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.
