Power Up Problem

I have a Satellite M45. I have the unit plugged into the power supply and the battery lite shows it is charged. However, when I try to turn the unit on, all it does is the power button turns blue for about 5 seconds and the cd/dvd drive starts to spin and then it shuts down.

If its unplugged and its doing this with a charged battery, then the battery may be bad and its max charge is so small that it wont start but says its full.

Try removing the battery and plugging it in and starting it, if it works, Bad Battery.

Itry removing the CD drive, some older Dells would do the same thing when the drive or bagttery would go bad. If so, then Bad Drive or battery.

Try taking out the Hard drive and then starting it with no Hard drive and see if you get a bios screen, if so, go into the bios and reset everything to defaults and try starting it again with the HDD put back in.

If its really old, past 3 years, the bios battery may have god out and needs to be replaced, some laptops have a watch battery soldered in or a rechargabl battery that connectd to the board, if so, its up to your ingenuity to replace it with a new one however you can. although i would try this if your not mechanically inclined, taking apart, most laptops is difficult unless its your job and you know your stuff.

Hope this helps a little.

Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 willnot operate on


Hello,

You have replaced the battery and then it worked.
Try once with power draining (remove the battery and then press the power button for one minute and then again refix the battery) and check.

Thanks

Toshiba laptop power cable won't charge battery


I had the same problem with my HP laptop some years ago. you have a broken cable/cord and it is the part that is permanently attached with your power pack. If you look at the cord that plugs into your laptop, you can be able to see the faulty part of it. it is usually very flexible or swollen. You can either take it to an electrical technician to change that part of the cord. Your power pack is still ok, but have the technician to check it out first before you change the cord. Else, you may have to get another power pack. below is the full specification of the power pack that is recommended for your laptop.

This Toshiba Global AC Adapter is a 65W external AC adapter designed to work with Satellite 1000, 1005, 1100, 1105, 1200, 3000, 3005, A80, A85, A110, L10, L15, L20, L25, L35, L45-S2416, L45-S4687, M30X, M35X, M40-S312TD, M45-S165, M45-S169, M45-S165X, M45-S169X, M55-S139, M55-S141, M55-S1001, M55-S1391, M55-S1412, M105-S10XX, M115-S10XX; Tecra L2 series portable computers.

Power problem - led shows the ac plug is in - battery does not charge - can not run laptop on ac adapter - what is causing this problem


Hi,
The connection to the power supply inside the Pc is or has gone,
because your using the connection 1000 times a year, it faulters, and fails.

$150/$200 to get repaired.
Strip out the laptop solder connection back up,
rebuild, very common problem.

Regards
Richard.

Power loss


Yes you will be able to replace the power cord and transformer (the black box).

Just to be sure thought. Shutdown your laptop and plug the cable into the laptop again. The laptop should show LED's on the front of it to show that the power is plugged in and is charging the battery. This is usually symbolised by a green or orange led.

The easiest thing to change for now would be the cable but if you continue to have issues you may have a larger problem with the power input module within the laptop itself.
