Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

Toshiba A105 Battery Life issues.

My Toshiba laptop is just over a year old now.
It works fine except for the fact that I CANNOT unplug the AC power or the battery dies within moments. The second the power is unplugged the warning display pops up in the taskbar saying "LOW battery. Please switch to outlet power immediately."
What could be the problem? I am getting tired of being attached to the power cord constantly.

    I don't want to buy a new battery only to have this same issue happen again.

    The low battery issues began happening about 6 or 7 months ago.... the ocmputer wasn't even a year old at this point. The battery should last a bit longer than that I'd imagine.

    your previous battery life was so short probably because it was faulty or because of the way it was being used. if you buy a new battery and avoid charging it for extended periods of time, it should last much longer.

My battery light is off.

The battery might be dead. Batteries only have a useful life and after that they have to be replaced.

Does your laptop work ok off the AC Adapter Power Cord? If so, your battery is dead and your power cord is good. If the laptop does not work off the Power Cord then either your Power Cord is bad or the DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop is bad. In either case a good battery will not charge if the power cord or the DC Jack is bad.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the compute. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A105-S2716 its about 3 years old and I have tried all extended life batteries but they don't charge.

Toshiba had issued a bulletin and a BIOS upgrade (version 2.0) to address the battery not charging/working issue (it's a bug in the system is what it is). Make sure that's done before contemplating any hardware changes or repairs.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop that will not power up.

Get sure the memories are good. then try reseting the BIOS by removing the BIOS batery, let it out for 5 minutes and place it again. Though you have to disassembly almost the whole laptop. If dont, chek the other "pheripheral" devices, HDD, DVD, and another (If)

Toshiba Satellite A105-S4064; can't get battery to charge

If you put strain on the jack (e.g. hang power adaptor from it whilst using or charging) then the socket on the mainboard can get hot due to poor contact and melt.

There is no way to fix this except to completely dismantle the laptop and fit a new socket - most likely a repair centre will charge you for a new mainboard.

Try another adaptor to see if that is the problem (broken wire in cord) - otherwise look closely at the socket in the notebook.

Toshiba Satellite A105 no power

try looking at the DC input. My brother's 1st laptop had that same problem. All we need to do is solder it. Remember-1st dc connection, not the one on the MB.

Battery problem

The battery Appears Ok But It Most Likely Either has A Memory Charge With No Current. Or Its Just been Charged Since Birth And Never Used On battery At All. This Will Kill A Battery In 2 Years. If They Are Allowed To Discharge Before Allways keeping The Plug In The Bateries Would last Around 5 years or More. It Sounds Like The Battery Is Old. If You Could Reverse Charge It For A Second You May Be Able To get More Life Out Of It. But if You Don't Know What Your Are Doing The Battery Could Explode. Don't Try ,It If Have never Performed This Task Before. You can Get Batteries On Ebay Really Cheap Compared To the Stores. Hope This Helps

No power

Take the Battery Out, unplug the power while its unplugged and battery released press and hold the power button about 7 seconds and put back the battery and the power cord turn it on. If still issue persists check the power connection and the actual outlet if it has connectivity problem. and last solution will be replacing the AC Adaptor (After ensure that DC input jack is not damaged)

Good Luck
