Question about Toshiba A205-S4577 Notebook

1 Answer

The power light is flashing blue on my Toshiba laptop. It starts to turn on but then shuts down immediately. It does this whether the battery is in it or not. It is hooked up to an external power source. I was told at Best Buy that it should run without the battery installed but have been told different by other sources.

Hi there.
Yes you can run the laptop on AC power only without the battery installed but it sounds to me like its overheating.
Buy a can of compressed air and give short blasts through the air vents and the CPU fan which is located underneath the laptop.
If this does not work the CPU fan may have quit and it will need replacing.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Power wont turn on..battery led flash orange


Remove battery. Maybe faulty? Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same specs. Reseat the Memory Mods. has the AC jack been damaged by pulling on the cord? Try plug in and at the laptop's AC jack "wiggle" the AC jack plug. Any change?

Toshiba A135-S4527 starts to power up then shuts down.


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Try this :

1. unplug the ac adapter and remove the battery .
2. press and hold power button for a minute
3. now put the battery back and plug in ac adapter
4. turn on the laptop now

it should work.

if not, try removing hard drive and memory modules then reinstall them back.

if the issue persists, your motherbord has gone bad.

Hi there,

If your pc will not turn on immediately it is possible that your laptop is overheating. Try using compressed air and blow out dust and dirt. If it still does not work, you have a faulty cooling system.

Blinking AC light with/without battery, computer shuts down


I want to try a very simple thing, cause it happened to me, while I am working on my computer , it shut down unexpectedly... cause the processor is working with its full performance and no enough cooling around the laptop. so while I move to other place and also I raise the laptop a little bit from the back to let the fans (bottom of the laptop) works perfectly .
try to open it again and do so.... may be it is a so simple thing that was far from your mind like I was before... good luck
