This is likely a power supply problem. If you see accumulated dust and debris in the vents on the back of the computer, Try blowing them out with compressed air. After cleaning, leave the computer unplugged for a few hours, then plug in and test. If it starts but fails again quickly, the power supply is probably overheating, and should be replaced. If there is no effect, there may a short on the motherboard due to dust and debris buildup. It is also slightly possible that the processor has gone bad, but this is rare.

The orange light shows the battery is charging. It will turn green when the battery is fully charged. The white light shows there is power entering the computer.
The usual problem with a computer when there is no response to pressing the power button is that the motherboard has failed requiring the replacement of the motherboard.
If the computer is still under warranty there should be a free motherboard replacement, if not, and you are able to do the replacement, you can find motherboards for sale on various websites. Be aware that motherboard replacement for laptops can be expensive if done by computer repair shops.

No power only orange power light


Hi, It most likely is a faulty power supply or a motherboard issue. Remove the power cord then press and hold the power button for at least 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and hit the power button. This will release any static buildup that might be in the computer and sometimes that causes it not to boot. If nothing is happening it is more likely your power supply than the motherboard.

Dimension 3100 turns on the power button has a steady orange light there is also an orange light on motherboard cpu and power suplly fans working but wont bot up


Blinking amber (orange) indicates a problem with the power supply inside the computer. If the system cannot boot and there is a solid amber light, this could indicate a problem with the power connections for the CPU on the system board (see "Power Problems" in your Owner's Manual).

Dimension 3100 wont turn on the power button has a steady orange light there is also an orange light on motherboard


Try a different keyboard. If that does not help, then you have a serious problem:
* power-supply not sending all the voltages (5V, 12V) that it should be sending;
* video-card loose in its socket;
* video-card malfunctioning;
* RAM loose in its socket(s);
* RAM that is malfunctioning;
* problem with the motherboard.

If you don't know how to trouble-shoot each of the above problems, it's time to take the computer to a qualified technician, for proper analysis & repair.

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The power button could be bad.
5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Toshiba satellite A100 dead. orange steady battery light with mains connected and power button lights shift key and 2 function lights - that's it.


> orange steady battery light

It will turn GREEN when the battery is fully-charged.
Is there a problem with the battery not accepting a charge?
Remove the battery, to see if the computer will start without it.

> power button lights shift key and 2 function lights

Do these 2 lights just "blink" once, and then go out?

Does a "power" button stay lit?

Have you hired a professional computer technician to trouble-shoot?

Sounds like its in either standby or hibernate. Try unplugging it if it wont power on, press the power button, wait for 2 minutes then plugging it back in then turn it on. Afterwards, go into power managment, and find where it asks what do when you press your power button change from hibernate/standby to ask what to do.
