Question about Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 Notebook

1 Answer

I think its my battery

I use my computer and randomly it will have the battery drain while plugged in. It says on the computer that it is plugged in but it is not charging the battery. If i turn the computer off and take the battery out and put it back in, it works fine. This has been happening more frequently. Does this mean I need a new battery???

It might be the battery or battery contacts, but sounds more like a problem with the a/c adapter cord being bad at the connector that goes into the back of the pc. Or, the power jack on the back of the pc may be loose, or damaged.

I'm guess here that you have had the unit for some time? If you leave it plugged in all the time you can actually damage the batteries. Any battery powered (rechargable) device should have the batteries drained periodically to condition them to last longer. My guess is the battery is not holding a charge properly and giving spikes. You can take to battery store and have it checked or if you have a ohm meter you can check for yourself.

I have a Satellite A215-S4807. The original battery went completely dead (possibly from this problem), so I just went out and got a new one with a 4800mAh, which is slightly higher than the 4000 it came...

There is something wrong with the "recharger" components on the computer's motherboard.
Instead of charging the battery, and then stopping the charging process, it is "draining" your batteries.

Take your Toshiba to the nearest qualified Toshiba service location, to get it fixed.

My parking lights will randomly turn

I think the problem may be from a couple of areas. Check the fuse box that controls the light in the engine. It may be a bridge or contact problem. You could check the integrity of the light switch for any fault.

Battery goes dead randomly ,other times starts right up

I had the same problem, every 3-4 months the battery was dead. Found to be the computer staying in a self diagnostic mode that was slowly draining the battery.
