Question about Toshiba P25-S670 Notebook
I have had this Toshiba laptop since late 2004 and never had any problems (besides occasionally overheating) until about a year ago. The laptop has remained dormant since then and I have put this problem off for awhile but it's time to hopefully get this issue resolved. I will try to be as clear and concise as possible.
The original charger was damaged so I bought a new, generic version about a year ago. It was all downhill after that. The computer would turn on for a few minutes and then shut off with no warning (I have seen this problem in another post) almost like it was overheating. All three lights on the front of the laptop would light up and then shut off except for the green ac adapter light so it was recognizing that it was still plugged in to the wall. The orange battery light would blink sporadically and then shut off as if the connection was spotty and not getting through. After only a month or two the charger began to act up and the sound of crackling live electricity could be heard coming from it. I figured the problem had to be the ac adapter.
I just bought a new charger about 2 days ago and gave it a try tonight. The computer started up, ran for about 10-15 minutes without issue although it was very slow. All of a sudden it shut off again. The battery had been charging during this time and got up to a 9% charge. Upon starting the laptop up again, the charge dropped to 5% and then 0%. The orange battery light began methodically staying lit as orange and then blink 2-3 times and go dark. This continued for about 5-10 minutes. At this point I thought it may be a dead battery. However, now the laptop is still plugged in but none of the lights are lit up and the power button will not respond.
The charger seems to work fine so I ruled that out. I then figured it was a dead battery but the laptop should still power on even if the battery is out and it is plugged in to the wall, correct? Short of ordering a new battery and trying that I am not sure what else to do. Could it be an internal power connection problem that can't be solved with a new charger or battery?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The laptop shut down unexpected the first turn on, but working good the last open? It cause as the mainboard heat too hot and the power supply fan problem. You may clean the ash of power supply fan and change a new fan for your laptop mainboard. Or you can dip some lubricating oil into the fan.
After doing this if the problem cant be solved, please change a laptop battery, as the precarious power can damage your laptop. See more laptop battery replacement in http://www.laptops-battery.co.uk
That's all i know, hope it can help you. Good luck

Have you checked the power options in the control panel, if set incorrectly they could cause problems. Also are you having any problems with the ac adapter plugging into the dc jack and being loose in anyway, if so you might need a new dc jack which is a costly repair but is still better than buying a new laptop. If you are good with a soldering iorn and have a steady hand and follow directions well you can do it yourself for around 8-15 dollars. Otherwise it will cost you 200- 300 dollars to fix. Email me @ email@example.com if u need more explaining.

Hi! I have the same problem with a Dell Inspiron 1100. Turn it on and after a while, it shuts itself off. Last like 10 or so minutes. Tried to back up files off the hard disk and now after you power it on, it shuts itself off after 5 seconds! I removed the battery and ran it on AC power - same thing - power it on, it turns itself off after 5 seconds.
Thanks for help!

Hey there again, after a few days of testing out the battery I am still unsure of the problem. If the laptop is off and the ac power cord is then plugged in, the battery will charge to 100%. Once the laptop is turned on however, the battery light will switch off and the battery will drain down to nothing and finally the laptop shuts off. The whole time, the power icon says the laptop is running on AC power yet the battery still drains. The battery will not charge again until the ac power cord is unplugged and plugged back in while it is off. This is the most consistent the machine has been in awhile but it is still odd that it's not recognizing that it is plugged in when powered on. Any more ideas? Thanks again for your help.

Most laptop batteries would die out after a year or two. None the less, the laptop should work with or without the batteries.
In some instances, the batteries have deteriorated to the point that it will gobble up the power from the charger denying sufficient juice for the laptop's use. The temporary workaround is to use the laptop without the batteries. if removing the battery and the unit powers up/works, then you have verified that indeed it is the battery causing you problems.
If even without the battery the unit will not operated, you can suspect the charger not 100% compatible with your laptop. If it is an original charger, then you can conclude that something is wrong inside the Toshiba.
I understand that the original charger intended for a Toshiba P25-S670 is 19VoltsDC. 6.3Amperes (120Watts).
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
