Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
I have a 2 yr old Toshiba A105-S4254.No software problems so far (except for the power chord problem, now solved, which is pasted below). But,today For the fist time when I turn the power switch on I get a black screen and I get this message (among other things that are written):
0251: System CMOS checksum bad- Default configuration usedPress
I have no idea what this is. Which of the two F1 or F2 should I press?
Thanks in advance,
PS: I have pasted the old probem which got solved last week below just in case it is related to this current one. Thanks
PREVIOUS PROBLEM that got magically solved on its own is given below:
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,
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.

SOURCE: A105-S4254 is dead!
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.
