    exactly the same here. Although, I left it powered down, battery in, plugged in to charge, overnight and I was able to boot and login this morning. Only 10% battery remaining. I think the battery is bad. I can't find anywhere that states the laptop 'requires' a working battery in order to operate on power adapter only.

I want to connect my Cassatt Tape Recorder to Toshiba Satellite M45-S165 Laptop and record data by using Audacity Software. Recommend the connection cable


I have never used that programme but expect it uses the sound card as an interface. If it does, the manual will tell you, you will need a Phono lead with 3.5mm jack plug on one end.
Hope that helps.

Remove password the bios of toshiba m45-s169


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

The laptop is dead.


It does sound like your cmos battery. It is located on your system board. If your confident you can take the laptop apart and get the details from the battery and then goto a pc shop and buy a new one if not take the laptop to the shop and they can replace it for you.

Toshiba laptop power cable won't charge battery


I had the same problem with my HP laptop some years ago. you have a broken cable/cord and it is the part that is permanently attached with your power pack. If you look at the cord that plugs into your laptop, you can be able to see the faulty part of it. it is usually very flexible or swollen. You can either take it to an electrical technician to change that part of the cord. Your power pack is still ok, but have the technician to check it out first before you change the cord. Else, you may have to get another power pack. below is the full specification of the power pack that is recommended for your laptop.

This Toshiba Global AC Adapter is a 65W external AC adapter designed to work with Satellite 1000, 1005, 1100, 1105, 1200, 3000, 3005, A80, A85, A110, L10, L15, L20, L25, L35, L45-S2416, L45-S4687, M30X, M35X, M40-S312TD, M45-S165, M45-S169, M45-S165X, M45-S169X, M55-S139, M55-S141, M55-S1001, M55-S1391, M55-S1412, M105-S10XX, M115-S10XX; Tecra L2 series portable computers.

Doesn't turn on at all!


Need some additional information first: -Which, if any LEDs are lighting up when you try to start. -You said you purchased another A/C adaptor, was there a reason you tried that first? -Have you been having any problems with the battery before this happened? -Have you tried removing the battery and tried starting with just the A/C adaptor plugged in? If yes was there any change?
