Toshiba Satellite M45-S269 AC Power Adapter

I just had a flame shoot out of the molded end of my AC Power Adapter. The box had been giving me intermittent power for the last couple of days, and when I picked it up tonight, a flame shot out and melted a hole in the wire. Is this normal?

Power comes on then immediately turns back off


Check if the computer turns on only with the adapter (ie; Remove the battery and then plug the adapter alone and then check if the computer is turning on.) If it does not then then the adapter is gone bad and the battery is empty, so change the adapter.
If it does then change the battery... The battery is gone bad...

My toshiba M45 takes several times to turn on,


what is your operating system? if you're familiar of what you're using, then it might be a hardware issue, please be specific,
if you're using windows, try running your OS to safe mode by turning it on and pressing F8 after bios load, it might be your Operating System is corrupted...

Laptop will not power up, ac adapter issue, battery, or someting else?


You can try taking your battery off the laptop and just have the power supply hooked up. If it will start up like that, your battery or the charging portion of your motherboard is probably bad and you should have a technician look at it. If it doesn't start, your power supply is more than likely bad and you can order a new one from eBay. Also check to see if there are any lights on the computer or power supply. If the laptop has lights on it is almost definitely a laptop issue, if nothing is on (including the light, if there is one, on the adapter) then it's probably a adapter problem and your battery is dead. You could try getting a new one on eBay or a universal adapter in a store. That way if the adapter turns out to be ok you can return the universal adapter.

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.

BSOD when trying to install Win XP, or boot Win XP from hard drive BSOD screen is as follows: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor or visit http://www.hardware-update.com for an updated BIOS. If you are unable to obtain an updated BIOS or the latest BIOS supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable the ACPI and allow you to continue your installation. Technical information: *** STOP: 0x000000A5 (0x00000011, 0x00000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) Every BSOD I received was this exact code. I ran a RAM test with memtest86+, it showed 0 errors. I tried reinstalling BIOS v 1.1 (supplied by Toshiba) and the first time it did let me boot into the XP Home installed on the system, after which it worked fine. While in xp, I checked device manager to see if the system was ACPI, and it was. I've also tried BIOS v 1.2, the last one supplied by Toshiba, to no avail. I did try pressing F7 during one of the installation attempts, and it hung at "setup is starting windows", I tried pressing F5 during an attempt, and there was only one option besides "other", the typical i486, which I selected, after which it hung at "setup is starting windows". I've flashed BIOS with v 1.2 a few times now, with same BSOD during both xp install attempts and boot attempts. What baffles me is the errors did not show up until I tried to install xp for the first time. Before that the computer booted every time. I've never heard of xp effecting BIOS during install. I have been to the microsoft support page for this BSOD. There are two articles on this specific code that I found, one for a "wake from hibernation" error, and the other for an xp installation error, seems as though the latter applies here. URL below. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314830 I'm fixing this for a friend. I fix computers all the time. This one is getting up there with DELL's laptops. The screen is broken, so I'm using an external monitor. He doesn't want the monitor fixed, so I'm only doing a fresh install + Backup for him. Thank god I already backed up the data. Thank you in advance for your time. (I just got the error again. Gonna try windows 7.)
