I strongly disagree, the problem is some bad capacitors on the motherboard near the cpu, If the capacitors fails the laptop circuit charging is unable to supply power to battery.
Replace those capacitors on motherboard and problem will be solved Asap!

There's not much you can do. The problem is definately with your motherboard. I'd recommend a bios update, but normally you can ONLY run a bios update if the battery and the ac are both plugged in.

This problem is pretty common among Toshiba's A105 and P105 models.

Besides replacing the motherboard there's not much you can do.

Sorry.

My Toshiba Satellite A105-S2031 laptop won.t boot up. When I turn on the laptop the two small lights below F 10 and F 11 light off then the computer turns off.


Try removing the battery (in case it's shorted), plug in the power adapter and boot to bios (using F2, F10, etc). Be sure there are no USB memory sticks connected, etc. If you are able to boot to bios, great! Then, it's a matter of eliminating the root cause: either battery or hard drive. If you don't boot to bios, then you're most likely facing a hardware problem. It may be as simple as an unplugged cable.
If you can't boot to bios, consider connecting an external monitor to rule out LCD display problems.

When I boot up my Toshiba A105 the monitor goes blank / black screen right after the Toshiba window. What is wrong with my laptop?


There is a video driver error, possibly just a corrupt file. Not easy to repair! You may need to reload your OS.
Try F8 as windows boots and select Safe Mode. If you can get in that way, restore your machine to a previously known good restore point.

Systems: Toshiba A100/A105 laptops

Note: the Toshiba support site recommends strongly a BIOS update:

BIOS update for Satellite A100/A105, Satellite M110/M115, and Tecra A7Posted on: 04/10/2007
Updated on: 04/10/2007 15:51:53
In very rare cases, the battery pack of your PC may stop accepting a charge, i.e., the battery stops working and no longer supplies power to the computer. To minimize the risk of ever experiencing this problem, we strongly recommend that you download and install the latest BIOS by clicking the 'Downloads' link that will appear when you are finished reading Support News.

Try the Toshiba Software Installer for Windows 7(v1.0; 10-16-2009; 31.87M)

When I try to boot up my A105 (with battery in or out and AC/DC adapter connected) the battery light flashes yellow 10 times. I've checked the output of the adapter and it is good. Any suggestions?


If you have tested with another adapter with the same results, flashing the BIOS can resolve a power issue.

From the Toshiba website:

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/outFrm.jsp?ofId=AskIris&searchString=a105+bios&x=11&y=8

Be sure to look at the ReadMe file.

Hope this helps.

Freezing up


I think you need to do a power cycle. remove the battery and use tha AC adapter alone. If it boots, then thats good. U can try also booting on safe mode by pressing F8. Then re start the notebook in normal mode. If it wont works then i think u need to reinstall windows as a last resort. U need to use TOSHIBA RECOVERY DISK this time.

c)If either of these fails continuity,replace the jack.
2)does your laptop now power up on AC ?

When you turn it on, do you hear any activity? Motors start working, fan spinning, etc…? Try to connect an external monitor and start the laptop. Check if you can get any video on the external monitor. If the external monitor is dead too, try to remove the battery and start the laptop from the AC adapter. It also might be a bad memory module or a bad connection between the memory and the motherboard. Try to reseat the memory module, move it to the second slot. If you have two memory modules, try to remove them one by one and turn on the laptop. Also, try to remove the hard drive and see if you can boot it to Toshiba screen without the hard drive installed.


There is no special button to reseat the BIOS settings. To do it, you’ll have to access the BIOS using F2 button on the laptop start up, but as you have no video, you cannot access the BIOS and set it to defaults.
