Question about Toshiba Satellite A20-S207 Notebook

1 Answer

Odd battery issue

When I'm using the computer on battery power, as soon as it gets to 50% it suddenly drops to 5%. The same thing happens when charging, once it hits 50% it jumps to 95%. Is there any reason this should be happening?

Dell latitude 610 AC adapter issue or battery pack issue or both?


It could possibly be the power jack that is inside the computer. This item is typically soldered onto the motherboard and it is what your ac adapter plugs into.

I hear 4 beeps ever 5 minutes on my emachine et1331g


That is somewhat odd. I don't think that I've personally heard of that happening before. Question: What is the date/time on your computer? I ask this as I believe that your issue may have to do with the little battery on the motherboard.

If the date/time on your computer gets reset every time you turn on the machine then you'll want to replace the little battery on the motherboard.

It sounds like you have a loose connection or wire somewhere, becuase you stated it started happening after you hit a bump which the jolt would cause movement in a component or wire causing some type of short or mis-connection to happen. I would check all wires, cables for loose or corroded connections, loose ground wires, especially battery and starter connections and tighten accordingly.

it is possible that the battery has been reset at a low level so it won't hold the charge. You may need to have it emptyed and then recharge it for the max time or you need to replace the battery.

My acer aspire 5741 battery charge keeps dropping lower and lower,it is now on 60%. Same thing happened a few months ago,got down to 15%,then suddenly charge d back up to 100%,was ok for a couple of...


One of the things is usage does drop the scale each time you use the battery without having the power supply unit plugged in. This is common for it to drop. The thing to worry about is if it does not charge back up to 100% at all. The ideal way to not ruin a battery is to let it go completely down to about 10% then charge it to 100% and go that route always charging will over time decrease battery life. So there is nothing that you are doing wrong or the battery going bad not at all this is normal. It will discharge normally without any usage especially over a two week period of time not being charged and just sitting there. John

Hi,
Welcome to FixYa! The problem that you have is about the Operating system and there are two ways of fixing the problem which is by using the Recovery Disc or using the One Key Recovery Button. Please follow the steps below for you to be able to fix the problem. If everything is done and its still the same, most probably, the problem is with the Harddrive.

5. It will asked you if you want to continue, Just click on OK or YES.


6. Once done, Reboot the computer.


For Recovery Disc,


1. Insert the disc inside the drive.


2. Turn off the computer then turn it back on and keep on tapping F12


3. There will a window that will appear which do have three options, HDD,ODD/DVD/CD, and NAT, choose ODD/DVD/CD


4. It will asked you to press any key immediately, you will need to press any key immediately so that it will boot from ODD.


5. It will asked you to choose a partition, choose Disc 0 partition 1

I had a similar problem on an old bronco that I had. I don't know which one fixed it but I replaced the battery leads and made sure the ground was connected well, and replaced the computer( or brain). You should be able to find the brain in a junkyard and it SHOULD be mounted on the drivers side inner fender(under the hood). Hope this helps.

You might want to check the CPU fan for dust and re-seat the RAM. I sounds more like a heat issue.
