Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S169 Notebook
Checked e-mail this morning. Worked OK. two hours later nothing! The AC adaptor measures 19vdc output (not under load, i.e. unplugged). Little green light(s) on front DON'T light up. For a long time, the ON button has had to be pressed only on the front right corner and pressed rather hard to turn it on. The laptop doesn't do anything using battery either. PLEASE HELP SOON!! Thank you
Hi, This sounds like the power supply circuitry inside the notebook. 1. AC Adaptor - OK but if connected to the mains and plug to the laptop, there should be an indicator in the laptop that it is so, per your post none; 2. Battery - doesn't power the laptop; 3. Power Button - press hard and long, not normal. Guess that leaves only the laptop itself. This would involve opening the unit and diagnosing the power supply section which includes the jack, reverse protection diode, smc fuse(s), charging components, power button and others. Probably you should seek the services of a qualified professional though I am getting the impression that you are technically adept likewise. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. good luck and kind regards.

Try firstly removing the laptop's
battery as it may be at a critical voltage and the system will not
start because of it. Plug in your ac adaptor and monitor what
happens. Does the power light illuminate? If it does it should then
boot up, if it doesn't, try a known good ac adaptor before going any
If the adaptor is fine then you have a mother board fault and should contact a dealer/repairer for further advice.
Hope this helps.
