Question about Toshiba Satellite A55-S306 Notebook

Toshiba Satellite A55-S306 doesn't come out of hybernation

The computer won't restart after going into hybernation, either open or closed. I can get it to start if I hit the power switch several times shutting it down and then immediately restarting ... but this isn't exactly accurate because it doesn't always completely shut down it just won't come out of hybernation. I can hear the fan shut down and restart and after doing this about 5 or 6 times it will finally come on. It restarts Windows but its not like it really reboots. I'm not much of a techie so I hope I'm explaining this right. I took it to a computer store and I was told that I needed a new motherboard. It just doesn't sound right to me. If the motherboard was bad would the computer even turn on?

    A new addition is that sometimes when it starts up I get an error message that says "Resume Failure Hit any key to continue". Is this still related to the Hibernation Issue?

Turn the PC on, when it is booting up, keep hitting "F8" until windows boot options come up, choose "Safe Mode" and then once it boots into safe mode fully, go to the start menu and choose shut down. After it shuts down, turn it back on and it should go back into normal mode. From now on, don't use Hibernate, its buggy and has been since XP.

    yeah, sounds like it can't get out of hibernation, did you try what I suggested?

Here's the link to model-specific drivers:

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp#

Choose Product Support, then Show ALL models (instead of Show Current Models) and you'll be able to get to your particular model. Your Network Adadpter should be an Intel 10/100, or it could be WiFi card, and your modem should be a Toshiba Software Modem. Drivers are all there at Toshiba's site.

Where is the CMOS battery located?


Unfortunately it is located inside the computer on the motherboard. It looks like one of those small round flat batteries that is used to keep information when the computer is turned off. Im sure you can find the screws under the notebook to open it up.

Good Luck,

kc

Sounds like you have snapped the centre connector in the laptop. If you look at the AC connector on the laptop there should b a "pin" in the centre. These frequently snap off, symtoms are :
Battery will not charge
Will not turn on from AC supply.

There are some firm which will replace the ac jack for you but it will cost.
Interent search .. replace DC jack on toshiba
