Question about Toshiba Portege S100-S1133 Notebook

1 Answer

Battery doesn't work

Computer and battery were working fine - suddenly there's a power cut and i discover the battery doesn't cut in. When the power comes back i check the power meter which tells me the battery is fully charged. Toshiba power management says the same - battery fully charged, but nothing I can do will persuade the battery to work.
Tried testing the battery with a multimeter but couldn't get any reading.

Is there some fault with the power software/recharging facility I wonder?

Enercell Laptop Battery Charger Doesn't Work When Plugged In?

If your laptop works fine while plugged in but stops working while unplugged it's likely that either your laptop battery is bad or your laptop is not charging the battery properly.

Below are steps that can be taken to help identify the cause of this issue.

Leave power plugged in

Make sure the computer has been charging from the power plug for at least two hours before attempting to unplug it.

Remove and reconnect battery

In some situations the battery can become loose.
Removing it and then put it back into the laptop.

Third-party utility

Use a third-party battery utility to determine the total capacity of the battery. For example, BatteryCare is a free software utility capable of doing this.

Replace battery or AC adapter

If your computer is still in warranty we suggest skipping to the next step.

If the above steps have been completed, we suggest replacing the battery in the computer or AC adapter. In most situations it's a bad battery.

hope this helps

Battery power indicator light has suddenly stopped coming on. Can I still use my laptop?

If it works, yes you can. It maybe that the battery went dead.

Try removing the battery for 10 minutes and put it back and see if the laptop powers on. If it doesn't, connect the power cord and see if it is charging. If not, then most likely battery is dead.

You can buy batteries from stores like ebay.

1026laptop was working then all of a sudden the screen cut out and tried rebooting and nothing works but the power icon is on and the battery shows charge did the laptop crash

A crash is possible. I however think you have a power or overheating problem. If after the laptop cools it reboots, then it is a heating problem. If it doesn't, let it charge over night. If it boots then, you have a power problem. If which case the adapter or the power connector is at fault.

My laptop (HP pavillion dv6700 series) shut off yesterday and now won't turn on. Nothing comes on when you hit the power button, even when connected to the wall. It worked fine yesterday morning, left it...

Yes it may very well be. Your battery may be running out. Try this: drain your battery completely than take it out of your laptop. Now power on your unit and let your computer recognize that the battery is missing. Turn off your unit and put in your battery and power up. Let the battery charge go to your battery cofig and check on the status. When it is fully charged you should get from 8 to 16 hours of constant battery time. When you jump back and forth from battery plug in your power cord and back and forth you actually wear your battery out faster. Sometime the life of the battery is cut in half. I disable my battery from my computer while it is still attached so you don't have to take it out and just use it when I need it. This will keep more refreshed and will last a lot longer.

Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else. It would be very kind of you if this does work for you to please rate me or leave a short note. I would really appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

Laptop sudden poweroff randomly

I googled "fujitsu laptop forum" and read a couple of posts and it may be an AC input jack problem. If the computer does this without the battery and only AC plugged in then you could assume it's not the battery or charging circiuts. Some laptops get mother board problems but that was not what I read. It wouldn't hurt to go to and post your problem. good luck.

Hp laptop battery problem

You won't like this solution--your battery is bad or your motherboard is bad. If the battery does not charge, it could have acquired a "memory." That is, it sees itself full when it really isn't and it will run down very fast.
If the battery doesn't charge at all, it could be the motherboard. One other thing you could try is cleaning the contacts on both the battery and the computer. This may help--could be dirty contacts are preventing it from working correctly.
