Question about Toshiba Satellite A65-S126 Notebook
I have a Toshiba Satellite A60 laptop and the other night I was attempting to do something on battery power and it shut down (went into powersave mode) before I was done. Three days later, I attempted to start it up by using a wall outlet and it powered up and clicked off after about 2 seconds. No BIOS showed, the screen stayed black. I pulled the battery and tried using only AC and it did the same thing. I left it overnight to see if the battery would charge and it did (so I don't think it's the power supply), then tried it and the problem persisted. It was working fine before (with the exception of not coming out of standby - you had to shut down and restart if it went into standby). Otherwise, I have had no major problems. Additionally, it is about 3 - 4 years old. I could really use some help as I am not ready to pay out for a new one. Thanks.
Ireceived a toshibaLaptopA65 S126 that willk not power up. The battery and charger is fine. When I turn on the power, the fan and hard drive starts to power up and then after 3 seconds, it shuts off. The power and battery light stays green but it will not go. Any solutions?
Mark F K, truong808, does the cooling fan(s) blow or come on? If not, the system will sense tha ti is overheating and will shut down to prevent further damage. Also, a thermal sensor may be failing on the Mobo and thus keep the fan from initiating. The cheapest fix is to replace the fan. Worst case scenario is another Mobo may be the fix.
