Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

Satellite A100-166 PSAA9E does not charge the battery


My laptop does not charge the battery.
Although Windows Xp recognizes the battery and says charging, the battery is not recharged.
I tried with a spare battery as i thought the battery was defective, with same results.

Strange is, when i turn off the laptop the power supply led stays on and blue, even without the power supply atached thus discharging the battery.
The battery led is always amber but not charging!!!

What is the matter with the laptop?
Happy new year!

Your power controll circuit on the main board is bad, you might need to change that or the entire board itself.. If you can get a technician just to repair the power controll circuit you should be fine. most ppl dont do that cause its difficult. Normally your entire main board is replaced. To fix that i will need to see the board but thats difficult since i am sure you dont live anywhere close to trinidad but i am sure someone close to you will be able to repair it, or your can download your service manual for your laptop and attempt to repair it your self.

Toshiba satellite s2652 internet connection problems

You have wiped all drivers by formatting and need to go to friends PC / download latest drivers for the exact model laptop from the vendors site and install them.

NB = install mobo driver FIRST.

Best thing about drivers on the net is that they are later than the ones with the laptop from new.
