Question about Toshiba Satellite P15-S470 PC Notebook

1 Answer

My Toshiba Satellie P15-S470 turned off by itself and I can not mak it to run.


Few weeks ago I notice that when I operated the power button in order to leave the laptop on “stand-by”, my laptop was shutting down.
Yesterday, my laptop shut down by itself after a period of time and today I have experienced the same situation, BUT now it does not start at all. I noticed that only for about one second it seams that will start but no chance so far.
PLEASE is anybody able to tell me what is wrong with my laptop and how should I fix this problem?
Thank you very much.
I am looking forward to getting a good advice.

Is your laptop connected to a power source? If not it needs to be recharged...
Check also the battery of your laptop, it might be dead already... meaning even if it is charging the battery doesn't charge anymore... it may need replacement.

To check the battery... remove it from the laptop and find a flat button to check if the battery is charged, or half charge, or none at all. If below half then the battery needs to be replaced.

How to replace dc power jack for toshiba p15

Take apart laptop and see what type of jack is on your system. There are two types. one is soldered on and the other is a module that connects to the motherboard with a wire connector.

If you have a soldered on type the you will need to de-solder it from the board then solder a new one onto the board. most ac jack issue just need to resolder it unless the jack itself is broken.

I tried to get computer back to factory settings and now i turn it on and the screen is black,it sounds like it is running though,and also the 2 lock buttons light up when turning it on..please help

Follow every step carefully!

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.

First, which model of Toshiba notebook do you have? Check it's bottom label- it will say "Toshiba" and have the model on it.
Then, try to update the display drivers. You can download them at If that doesn't work, you may have an issue with the BIOS or the display itself.
