It sounds like the battery is done...happens a lot. You may be able to just by a new battery pack to solve the problem.

    No, because the battery still feeds the computer's power supply. It sounds like the battery isn't holding the charge at all which it sometimes can when (like you've done) plugged in directly to an outlet. It's worth a shot. You should see if you can test the theory out at a bestbuy or computer store...they may let you test one out in the store.

Toshiba equim has ablack screen


Assuming the laptop IS running at least the POST tests:-
1. Try shining a torch into the screen t see if you can see any figures or characters. If so, your backlight is defective.
2. Try connecting an external monitor via the 15 pin D-type connector usually found on most laptops. If it works, get into the BIOS to check he BOOT SCREEN setting is set to LAPTOP LCD or LCD+EXT. If the LCD is dark in any case it could be the graphics chip OR the LCD is faulty.

My Toshiba Satellite A205 S5000 came with 2 Ram memory chips of 1GB each. The OS is Windows 7 with 32-bits. Can I upgrade the memory to 4 GB by inserting 2 memory chips of 2GB each?


Hi Lewis

yes you can

here is the link but is cheaper if you just write down the exact numbers from the website and buy in computer warehouse or shop.
http://www.crucial.com/uk/upgrade/Toshiba-memory/Satellite+A205+Series/Satellite+A205-S5000-upgrades.html

but don't forgot to clean your laptop airflow with air duster every month with this you prevent the dust clogging up.
blocked airflow lead to owerheating
and heat differential is not good especially on lead free compound because the composite of welding material contain
silver and aluminium these metals hate each other both has different friction and heat transfer.
lead is more efficient but by eu law is not permitted any more.
if you want to run fast tasks you should go for pc laptop has modified core voltage is slower than computer
and all the high spec numbers are to attract customers to spend money.

Toshiba A205-S5809 Wont power on


Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs. If you have a multimeter, verify DC voltage at the AC jack plug. If the AC jack, in the laptop, has been pulled, damaged, it's may have a loose connection. You didn' say if ANY LED's, battery charge, work? If the battery is charged and it doesn't start on battery only, then you have other issues. It may need a ride to a Qualified Computer Tech.

My battery charges but only lasts about 20 minutes once it says it is fully charged. Just purchsed a new battery thinking it was old (laptop is about 3 years old) and the same thing happens.


From what you describe and assuming the new battery was "new", I'd say you have an internal short which is draining the battery over a short period of time. I'd also investigate the accuracy of the battery charge indicator. Download this free utility which will give you a more accurate picture of your battery:
http://www.mioplanet.com/products/batterymeter/

I'm assuming you gave the battery a "commissioning charge" when you bought and used it?
If not, this is something you should do with all new LI batteries. This bit is reproduced from a website that sells batteries for the Toshiba satellite series:

"2. The new Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack needs to be circled (fully discharged and recharged) three to five times to reach its optimum performance.
3. Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery will undergo self-discharging when left unused for a long period of time. Thus, it should always be stored in a fully charged state and kept in a cool, dry and clean place.
4. It is normal if the new Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery gets warm when being charged or used. However, please pay special attention if the battery pack becomes excessively hot. This may indicate there is a problem with the charging circuit of the electronic device. Please consult a qualified technician if necessary.
5. To maintain the optimum performance of Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack, it is highly recommended to circle (fully discharging and recharging) it at least once a month.
6. New batteries are hard to be charged. Sometimes, your electronic device may indicate a fully charged condition about 10 to 15 minutes when Toshiba Satellite a205-s4777 battery pack is being charged for the first time. When this happens, remove the battery pack and let it cool down for about 10 to 15 minutes then repeat the charging procedure. Sometimes, the new Satellite a205-s4777 battery will suddenly refuse to be charged. If this happens, a suggested solution is trying to remove the battery from the device and insert it again. "

Toshiba Satellite a205 the battery light started


I think you may need a new power supply, check this to make sure it is working OK, If this isn't working then the battery will not charge, and give symptoms you describe.

Suddenly my Toshiba Satellite A205 laptop died. No power.


First, check your power supply (the adapter). Is it putting out the required voltage to charge the battery?
If not, then you might have a dead battery and no way to charge it.
If the power supply is working and when you turn on the computer you get no lights, then you're probably looking at a new motherboard.
If you get startup lights and hear the fan, then it's getting power and you might have a video problem. But it sounds like, from what you wrote, there is no activity at all when you try to start it. That would be the power circuit on the motherboard, most likely.
