First, try re-seating (remove and reconnect) the ac power cable at the adaptor end followed by re-seating the dc power cable from the adaptor at the laptop power connection. Watch to see if the message goes away. If it doesn't you will next need to check the adapto for the correct dc output with a volt meter. If the correct dc voltage is output by the adaptor the source of the problem is at the laptop. However if there is no output or it is not the correct voltage and current for the laptop you either have a bad cable or adaptor (transformer). Do you have access to a voltmeter to make these checks?

Plug in your power cord from the laptop to an electrical outlet. Your battery is dead and/or needs recharged.

Please switch off the laptop and remove the battery. wait for 10 minutes and clean the battery and keep it in laptop. Connect the laptop to AC power.

My laptop turn off, I think it got hot, I can't turn it on now. turn off Sunday


Hi
try this,
unplug dc plug from laptop. remove battery.
wait a few minutes. press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds.
plug the dc power plug back into the laptop, but do not put battery back in yet. Then try to power on. if it powers on, let it run a few minutes, but best to keep checking to see if it is getting warm or hot anywhere. if it is getting hot shut it down immediately. If it isnt getting hot then shut it down and put the battery back in.

if it doesnt power up, then i would have to suspect heat damage to the motherboard.

The PC suppose to still be on warranty, so you can go and returned. When you bougth it, you need to charged it for a period of 12 hours. If the battery charging icons indicates that is charging, maybe the laptop terminals are not working and you need to take it to the store for that.

Toshiba Satellite: A135-S4427 / Won't shut down


Hi,
by pressing the power button in, the computer has gone into standby or hibernate mode.
Heres what you Do:- press and hold the power button for between 10 to 20 seconds.
that should bring it out of hibernation.
if that does,nt work. remove the main battery.
when you,ve resolved the problem, run a disk-scan via your windows operating system.

When power cable unplugs computer immediately shuts down (have replaced battery)


Sounds as if the power pin (inside the computer) is damaged. The part is under $ 10 but the labor is gonna be a hundred to two hundred bucks. You can, if you are careful, fix it yourself.

You can also get a JerkStopper cable retention device to hold the cable in the correct position until you get the pin fixed. The cable retention device is designed to keep you from damaging the pin by pulling on the power cord. In this case, it sounds like it's too late for that.
