SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite A15-S129 PC Notebook will not turn on

I have the same problem. What I have found with mine is that if I can get the battery to take just a little charge then I can get it up and running. Here is how I do it. Disconnect AC power leave the battery in and start the laptop. As soon as thing start to run I plug the AC back in and it works fine from there on. Now mine is flashing as well now and I have a dead battery and it will not restart. Something I have noticed thought is it appears that the yellow light is blinking a code. This is what I have come up with. I appears to be flashing 323 as the code or could be 2 shorts 1 long then 2 shorts and then 3 shorts.

Anyone know where to find info on these flashing codes.

Thanks

SOURCE: 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.

Take the battery and power supply out and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This will reset your hardware settings. Your backup battery isnt your problem. Does your battery light turn on when charging? Does your keyboard lights light up when it runs for a second (try pressing caps lock)?

I have a 2007 Toyota matrix and the fan that cools the motor will not shut off even when I turn the car off, this causes the battery to run down, any ideas what the problem might be


Does the fan really run until the battery goes dead?? OR are you afraid that it might run until the battery is dead?? In many cars, the fan will continue to run for a short time after you shut it off.... until the engine coolant is cooled to a certain point. It can also run for a while when you've been using your air conditioner. Now, if it is actually running continuously and won't turn off, there is a sending unit somewhere that isn't functioning correctly, either in your cooling system... or your air conditioning system. You're going to need to do some research and find out which sending unit might be the culprit..... or take it to the shop. They'll know what to do and can probably quickly fix it.

We have a Sony VAIO, VGC-LV290J. When plugged into an outlet, the machine's fan just revs. The "VAIO" splash screen does not appear and the screen remains blank. The Bluetooth keyboard does...


It seems that the 'POST' (Power On Self Test) is not starting, and thus is not displaying the "splash" screen. The fans will run at 100% until the POST completes.
But, if the POST does not complete, the fans will "roar".

Check for a defective CPU, or defective RAM, or a defective motherboard.

It probably is *NOT* the CMOS battery -- if that battery is dead, then the "default" settings should allow the computer to start (with the wrong date/time).

since it sat so long sensor or relay may be corroded or gummed up and giving a false reading [the fan is on battery circuit] so if u turned off machine and it was hot and temp rose to sensor setting fan would come on and start cooling and would go off when sensor reached lower temp also a battery sitting for 2 years in anything unless hooked to a trickle charger or a battery tender would be dead check wiring harness and sensor from oil cooler

Hello, My HP Compaq 6720s is turned off and won?t start again, when I connect the charger it's turning on and of all the time until I disconnect the charger. When I try to turn on from the battery its jus...


When you say turning on and off all the time until I disconnect the charger, IS the charger running the machine and then after so long cutting out? you leave it and it works , if so its overheating

Machine will need fan and all ducts cleaning and most likely replace arctic silver on psu

IF on the other hand its not running more likely the charger is not powering the machine or charging battery in which case you will need new charger

hope this helps get back to me if you need more help

Computer turns on, but does not boot to XP


Generally, fans are controlled by heat readings...something to check is the operating temperature that is shown in your BIOS when you boot up...(access your BIOS by tapping on the delete key, or F2 key while booting)..if it goes over 70C real quick then there is a CPU heat dissipation problem, which would cause the fan to run like this i think that it is more of an issue that your CPU died...has your machine taken any kind of hit or fall that might have loosened things?...or perhaps the heat sink compound between the heatsink and CPU failed.....
but it also could be a dead MB

CPU fan operates but laptop otherwise dead ?


Remove the battery and plug in the power adapter. Attempt to power on the laptop. If nothing happens, then try holding the power cord, at the jack, at a different angle. Wiggle it a little and see if the laptop will come on. If it does come on, then wiggle it some more and see if the laptop cuts off.

This will determine if your DC Jack is faulty. I have resoldered a bunch of these on this model. Usually the solder around the HOT pin on the mainboard cracks. Thus, you don't get a good power connection.

Now, as far as the laptop coming on with the battery.... how long will it run on just the battery? A couple seconds? Or a couple minutes? Or until you turn it off? If the battery were about dead, then it would come on for just a couple seconds but not POST. Meaning no video or anything. But if it comes on and runs for several minutes without turning off, then a weak battery isn't the problem. It should still POST and show video and all that.

So, even if you get the DC Jack fixed, assuming its faulty, this may or may not solve your POST problem. Never know really until the dc jack is for sure supplying good steady power.
