Same Weird Problem,

Hi Melnavz,

I use your step-by-step and I have the same weird problem. Weird because when I plug the AC adapter, the laptop start right now... without press the power on switch. At this point, the LED power flash green and orange without stopping.

If I stop the laptop, the LED power stay green and the battery led stay off.

What's the problem ???

Thank's in advance

Is the laptop display a windows or black out

Black out?
Please stop the laptop by pressing the power button until it stop.
remove the battery
remove the memory and then after 15 minute insert back the memory and install the battery.

If the system display windows, and the problem is always start when plugging the ac power. maybe the battery of the laptop is damage.

Please try go to bios setup and then at the power option, find the restore the "last state" something like that and the set it to "off: option.

It may be overheating. Try using a vacuum cleaner hose on the air vents, that will help to clear the ventilation for the radiator.

Is there a software that is associated with my sonny battery that will make it charge again

Hi there,

If you plug in your AC adapter to your laptop to charge the battery and get the "plugged in, not charging" message then try the following solution:

  • Disconnect AC adapter
  • Shutdown laptop
  • Remove laptop battery
  • Connect AC adapter
  • Power on laptop
  • Click the Startup Menu
  • Type Device and select Device Manager
  • Under the Batteries category, right-click Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery and select Uninstall.
  • Shutdown laptop
  • Disconnect AC adapter
  • Insert laptop battery
  • Connect AC adapter
  • Power on laptop

    If you follow these steps and find that your laptop still does not charge then consider replacing the laptop battery itself.

    Hope to have been of assistance,

    My daughters Toshiba satellite l505d will not boot up correctly. It starts but then nothing happens. What do I need to do. Have already taken battery out and restarted. Any help would be helpful.

    Try the following.
    1. Remove battery and plug in the AC Adapter and check if it works
    If yes - Battery is defective
    If no - Motherboard Problem/AC adapter

    2. Check the AC adapter LED indicator if its lighted or not(double check by a multitester)
    If lighted - it works properly
    if not - replace
    3. Try to reinstall WINDOWS operating system by the use of the installer CD
    4. Reformat your computer and install necessary drivers and applications

    Thanks. Cheers!

    Laptop battery and AC adapter

    Replace the power supply first, chirping is not good, and if the supply has a low output it could be putting out just enough to run the machine and not enough to charge the battery. Starving the machine for power can damage the machine or the battery, so, you may still need a battery, but you won't know until you replace the supply. If you do need a battery, aftermarket or generic batteries are fine. I've used them and had no problems. Many times you'll find that the aftermarket batteries are made by the same company that the laptop manufacturer uses, they just don't have the label, it's this way with damn near all the laptop manufacturers.

    Noise coming from AC adapter

    There is a possibility that the power managment sestem in the computer has malfunctioned and is back feeding and burning up the supplies. You will need to take this in for a professional diagnostic to find out if you have a back feed problem. A back feed problem is rare, but not unheard of.
