Question about Toshiba Satellite A45-S121 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a toshiba satellite A45-S121 that blinks a yellow light series 2 then 6 and will not power up with battery in or out

It did power up to the Toshiba blue screen but needed the correct hdd. I ordered a new power supply as I acquired it without one. I ordered the correct hdd and installed it, then left it charge overnight. When I tried to power up it did nothing. I removed the battery and ac supply and held down on the power button for 1 min, then reinstalled the battery and ac and tried again. Still nothing. Went through the series again and left the battery out using only the ac, still nothing. Tried the initial battery out and ac disonnect then both back in and nothing. I have noticed that it blinks a series of 2 blinks and then 6. After sinking this much into it I am determined to fix it. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

    My laptop will NOT boot up with or without the battery OR the A/C. I am beginning to think it needs a new power source. It "use to" boot up to the blue screen before I repalced the hdd. IF necessary I will take it somewhere and incur charges that I really cannot afford, but I've spent this much so I "will' make it happen.

Did the new HDD come preinstalled with an operating system (Windows) ?

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite A15-S129 PC Notebook will not turn on

I have the same problem. What I have found with mine is that if I can get the battery to take just a little charge then I can get it up and running. Here is how I do it. Disconnect AC power leave the battery in and start the laptop. As soon as thing start to run I plug the AC back in and it works fine from there on. Now mine is flashing as well now and I have a dead battery and it will not restart. Something I have noticed thought is it appears that the yellow light is blinking a code. This is what I have come up with. I appears to be flashing 323 as the code or could be 2 shorts 1 long then 2 shorts and then 3 shorts.

Anyone know where to find info on these flashing codes.

Thanks

Not yet. When I find the time I plan to try and switch out the power supply/jack in the back of the machine. I am hoping it is just a matter of a faulty connection. Thanks for asking.

Mark F K, truong808, does the cooling fan(s) blow or come on? If not, the system will sense tha ti is overheating and will shut down to prevent further damage. Also, a thermal sensor may be failing on the Mobo and thus keep the fan from initiating. The cheapest fix is to replace the fan. Worst case scenario is another Mobo may be the fix.

SOURCE: "Plugged in, not charging", Toshiba Satellite A135 S4527, under Windows Vista Home Premium

I started having the same problem and worse mine would shut off without warning either from the battery running down or even just plugged in without a battery.

I thought It might be overheating so I got a can of air and cleaned all of the vents...and downloaded core temp to monitor the cpu temp @ http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/. Same problem shut down and no charging even though it was running cool.

Finally I started changing settings and it seems to be working and charging just fine.

Here's the answer:
1. Set your power scheme to balanced
2. Open Toshiba Assistant from start
3. In Toshiba Assistant open CPU tab and set to low power.
4. When asked "restart now?" say no and shut it down using the start menu.
When you start it back up you will see the change.

Changing either one of these settings brings the problems back. I can't explain it.

I HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!

I just can't afford another laptop right now.

P.S. even at low power my system works fine...It's a little slower @ start-up but otherwise good.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop A135 series and it won't recognize my toshiba external hard drive. However, the drive works fine with my HP


This can be an issue with the USB port, or the drivers.
Is the hard drive a Power HDD ? that means it has 2 usb chords one for power and one for data transfer? coz those might not work with laptops, also has it ever worked with the laptop ?
Thanks

Should a toshiba a45 s121 mb post without memory installed?


No. The A45 series (and the near identical A40 series) have no base memory: at least one of the two RAM sockets underneath the keyboard needs to be populated for it to post.

My toshiba satellite A45S121 is having problems. I can not turn on the computer the power charging led is blinking yellow. Any ideas on how to solve the problem?


I'm not sure if you've tried this yet, but there's a possibility that the power is too low for it to run and still has enough left to blink the hibernation light. Try charging it maybe?

On the web, go to Toshiba.com and select your country. Look for support or downloads then choose your computer. You should get to a page that has all the latest downloads for your computer. You may want to download them all as they will be the latest, and install them.
