Question about Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 Notebook

2 Answers

Purchased new battery, now NOTEBOOK won't work on battery after full charge

This is the 2nd new battery. Probably not the battery.

My toshiba a45-s250 notebook works normally with the original batter with the exception that the battery life is now about 30-50 minutes.

A new compatible battery was purchased. After installation and full charge, the battery ICON shows FULL CHARGE. The notebook will not fully boot when on BATTERY only. It can be booted with the A/C connected but if the A/C is disconnected it abruptly shutdown (no messages) after 3-5 minutes of use.

Swapping back to the original battery returns the functions of the notebook back to normal w/o the benefits of a longer battery life.

Any IDEAs... BTW, I removed and reinstalled the BATTERY from the SYSTEM PROPERTIES->HARDWARE->DEVICE MANAGER without any change.

    Hmmm... Well I stated that I had already tried two new batteries and fully charged both and the problem persists. I'm right back where I was when I posted this problem.



    No help but thanks for typing.

Your batter may never have been broken in appropriately; Acer, in the fine print, says that to break it in, you must fully charge it, then let it drain completely 3 times! Then you can use it normally. Since most Li ion batteries work the same, this could be a general rule. My notebook tells me when it is fully charged--you don't have to guess.

    You definitely need to go to Toshiba help, as they must know their glitch which causes this. I presume you have returned the other batteries per warranty. Check to see if the specific models have been recalled--that has happened quite a bit. good luck

Better you first charge the battery for 16 to 17 hours and recheck the same. If problem persists, change the battery from where you bought it. that battery is faulty. And yes there is no need to install the battery from device manager. Just open the battery compartment and replace the battery with new one.

Toshiba Support > Satellite A45-S250 Notebook PC > Atheros 802.11 a/b/g WiFi driver with Cisco WPA support for Windows XP and 2000,

HOWEVER, it requires the Atheros Client Utility v2.4.2.18, to be installed. If it isn't installed on the laptop, this utility needs to be installed first. Then the Driver above.

My toshiba satelite A45-S250 doesnt start the windows, it keeps rebooting and I am not being able to install it again, my dvd drive isnt working


Unplug the power cord, take out the battery and hold the power button down for 10-15 seconds. This should take your computer out of the reboot loop that it is stuck in. If it doesn't, try using an external CD drive from Wal-Mart or Radio Shack, your computer should register it and you can load the windows CD from there.
