Question about Toshiba Portege 7200CTe Notebook

Portege 7200CTe battery life short

I have a used Portege 7200 CTe which almost always shuts down after about 10 minutes when running on battery (no matter how much charge the computer says the batery has), and it never warns me before doing so. I don`t know if there is a problem with the computer or the battery, and I don`t know how to check. Also, I don't know how to find out exactly why the computer is shutting down.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have the same problem with my Toshiba portege 7200CTe, and I bought a new battery for it and it still has the same problem... But mine shuts down in exactly 1 min and 57 seconds. so I basically have to keep it connected at all times... If it´s not the battery what else could it be, or is it just that the computer is too old?

I don't know for sure if this is your problem, but I do know that laptop batteries normally have a certain number of full charges before they tend to stop working well. I have seen your problem happen to several different laptops. One way to check this would be buy a new battery for it. If it works fine with that, the problem was the battery and you now have a replacement. If it isn't, however, you have spent the money on the battery and it hasn't done anything. So, that is up to you. That's the only thing I know of, tho. Or if you know someone else with the same laptop, try putting their battery in. Like I said, I don't know for sure if this is the issue, but I have seen it happen to several laptops and a new battery usually fixed it or at least figured out what the problem was. I don't know any way to figure out if that's your problem without buying the battery first, but there might be a way.

When I turn on my Acer 5420 it acts like it is going to power on but then shuts down


Make sure your the computer has charged for about 10 full minutes before trying to turn on. the battery has a very short life and needs a good boost before using. if possible just keep it plugged in during use. we have that problem a lot whenever it hasnt been plugged in for a while.

My cordless mouse will not go off when I shutdown my computer, I always have to remove the bat- teries.


Your PC shutting down has no control over the mouse but it will shut down on its own after a few minutes of no activity. This is normal.

Short battery life


Battery life on laptops is like the mileage estimates on new car windows....it's wishful thinking. You would have to set the power management to shut the screen off after 5 minutes of inactivity, shut the drives off after 6 minutes and send the thing into hibernation after 10 minutes to get better batttery life.

Battery life is very short


Not really. What happened is you shorted the life of the battery by always having it plugged in and in a charging state. The battery has a memory and since it's always been plugged in, it will never charge fully. There are products out there that will drain your battery down and reset the memory issue. But it would be cheaper to get another battery. If you are going to keep it plugged in the majority of the time, charge up the battery and remove it.

I spilled water on my laptop


hi,
since you spilled the water when the laptop was on, the internal ciruits could have been short ciruited. you cannot repair it yourself. please contact a nearby service center. they will give you the information regarding whether it can be fixed or not. but my guess is that it cannot be fixed easily. beacause short ciruits generally blows of the ciruit completely and things like soldering also won't help.

good luck
