Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2246 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop does not power on

My Toshiba satellite is just 6 months old. I shut down my vista OS normally one night, and from the next day onwards, it is not powering on at all.
The LED inside the power button does not light up, and there is no signs of the HDD also booting up. I tried the AC power directly, suspecting the battery, but with no luck, it is still the same.

Can someone suggest a solution?

I recommend reinstalling Vista, and replacing the Hard Drive as well. The errors being sporadic could be indicative of a hardware failure or a software failure and could be both in tandem.

How can i set my toshiba satellite a215 s7422 back to factory settings?

Toshiba laptops from mid 2007 onwards dont have a recovery disc supplied with a purchase of a laptop. Instead, Toshiba has added a hidden partion on the hard drive which contains the same files on a recovery cd / dvd.

To reinstall your laptop to the factory settings / "out of the box" settings, please follow these steps. It worked for me, and should work for you.


1) Hold down the power button for 10 (ten) seconds to switch off your machine.

Please note: Holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.

2) Press and hold the 0 (zero) key and at the same time, tap the power button once to switch on your notebook.

3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.

4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.

5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.

6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.

7) Click Next to Start recovery.

My system is not working, when I press the power button, power is not coming

You are having the same charging issue that many other owners of this laptop are having. The power module where you plug in the AC adapter to the computer is defective. This is a known issue that Best Buy usually can't figure out. I sent mine back to Best Buy 4 times under warranty and they were unable to fix it.

If it's still under warranty tell them to replace that power plug circuit board or whatever it is and it will work fine. Mine has been working fine since Toshiba replaced that part 6 months ago.

Toshiba Satellite A135 laptop

Try disconnecting power adapter and removing battery for two minutes. If the laptop still does not boot then there is an hardware problem. You can try taking out and putting back ram modules, but my suggestion is to take the laptop at a repair shop, if you cannot fix it by removing battery.
