Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4254 Notebook

1 Answer

A105-S4254 is dead!

Ironically, 5 days after the paid warrenty expired (2 years and 5 days after I bought this piece of equipment), the A105-4254, it suddenly died on me!

It always had a "loose connection" to the AC adaptor. While working at home, I always had to pull and yank the power cable everytime I used it to make sure the "blue power light is on" and that power is being supplied to my laptop or else it would indicate that it is being powered through the battery instead.I lived with it. However around Christmas, when it was the season to be Jolly, the power cable connection started acting up big time and I perpetually had to hold the powersupply cable connection to the laptop with my left hand and type using only one hand. This went on for a few days. And then, on January 17 2009, my laptop just died on me. Like dead dead.I bought a new powercord ($150)- nothing. I removed the battery and plugged in the AC adapter-nothing. No lights, no sounds, nothing. I cannot live without my laptop. Help.

Please give some suggestion which do not include paying an arm and a leg to get it repaired (it is outside the warrenty remember).
Thanks to all in advance,
Sangeeta

According of your description, If you already changed the power suply, and the battery, and still no signs to power on, your laptop has some issue at power connector in the motherboard and need to be serviced.

First of all I would return the power cord and get your money back :-) Most likely if you weren't having to wiggle the wire on the plug itself it was not the problem. Often on laptops after continuous "pulling and yanking" what happens is the power jack on the motherboard comes loose. What your left hand was doing was holding the jack in the right position so the broken piece was able to make contact again.

You can go ahead and press F1. If it happens again the next time you boot up or it just goes back to that screen try pressing F2 and then exit with saving.

This should solve your problems, If it doesnt you have something configured incorrectly in the CMOS.

If this is the case there should be somewhere that you can restore the defaults of the CMOS (as every computer is different I can't guide you through this process)

Have a great day.

It is not the power cord but the input jack itself. You will need to bring it to someone that can solder in a new connector. This is what they look like from the inside. Most local computer or electronic stores can make the repair for you. Should be around $50-$75. Make sure you don't pay too much.

Do not power on


Companies that manufacture printers typically will not replace an internal part but go immediately to either repairing or replacing the whole unit. Typically if the repair is done it will cost anywhere from 75 USD to 100 USD plus an addition 15 USD or so for shipping and handling. You may also be asked to purchase the part. Replacement will of course cost the amount you paid for the printer.

Hi Bob:

Flip your laptop upside down (use a towel to prevent scraatching)

The panel is about dead center of the bottom of you laptop...there is a single screw...and I think a black label.

Let me know how this works out for you my friend.
