Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4004 Notebook

Laptop will not stay powered on.

My laptop will not stay powered on. If I move, the lapdown shuts off. The battery light is orange. I purchased a new power adapter because I thought maybe my adapter had a shortage, but I still have the same problem.

    Yes our laptop also a toshiba satellite has the same problem.We replaced the power adapter and leads which made no difference.Also purchased a brand new battery for laptop which also didn't help.The fault is inside the laptop itself,with something to do with the main power board.We have been told that to have it fixed it needs to be sent back to toshiba.

Try this without the battery installed, just to make certain that the power supply is working.

then, on some batteries, there is a button on bottom, with a scale for reading the charge level.

check on that, you may find the batteries really weak or fully discharged, which can make the laptop work oddly.

hello

shut down computer - unplug power cord from laptop - remove the battery from laptop - plug Ac adapter into computer and Ac outlet (wall)
turn on computer
if computer does not turn on, replace the AC adapter and cord - then place battery back into computer
plug in new Ac adapter and cord - recharge battery - if orange light stays on after 4-6 hours of charging battery, you need new battery as well - replace battery, charge it up and it should be fine

if you have attempted these steps before and no change occurs, then you may have issue with power connection in computer - locate a service centre to replace power connection on computer

Compaq Presario laptop C300 - issues (orange light)


Sometimes when a PC gets stuck in hibernation mode, the only way to reset it is to remove the CMOS battery for 10 minutes and replacing it. It resembles a large watch battery and is usually located near the center of the motherboard.

Inspiron Battery Light Flashing Orange


Battery.

Dell has a chip internal to the battery programed to shut down after a certain number of charge cycles. This means every time you plug the laptop in with the battery installed. When it reaches this determined number the battery effectively shuts down, even though technically it's still good. There have been loads of complaints on the net toward Dell over this issue. I have myself experience this. Battery good one day, powered down, went home, powered up... only to receive the deadly flashing light. Only cure is to replace battery. Several hacks trying to get around this but they're all horrible. Bad Dell - bad, bad Dell!

Sounds like a Battery - AC Adapter problem. Do you have an Icon showing your battery level?

Do you have Windows XP? I'm guessing you do because of the memory upgrade.

If you have XP, go to Control Panel - Power Options and check you battery. Choose to show in task bar.

If you have a AC Adapter, the BIOS on your laptop will NOT charge the battery, but it will show that you are on AC (unless it's completely dead)

I'm guessing that if you only had 1g of memory, you have a pretty old laptop, and you probably should purchase a new AC Adapter, and a new Battery.

I bought a new battery, laptop won't boot


The new battery is defective - It needs to be repacked. If you're still close enough to date or purchase(even for an ebay purchase), you should be able to do a swap.

My Dell Inspiron 8200 won't boot up. The battery is dead (the latch broke shortly after purchase), and the laptop is plugged in to the wall using the original power cord. There are three indicator lights...


Since it has sat dead for so long, it's certain the bios battery is drained. The bios battery is a small rechargable Nimh inside the laptop, and if you leave the laptop plugged in for a day or two it may come to life for you. I can't say for sure though if that battery will prevent the unit from booting at all or not, but I would try it.
