Your power supply may have blown out

    you need to find a tester and test power out from your power supply. If it is not same as factory specs then find a replacement and test the laptop.

    If the laptop and the power adapter do not show any sign of life, this is first step to troubleshoot the problem.

    When you find a replacement adapter connect it first with battery out.

    In any case do the reset suggested by firs expert removing battery and connecting to adapter only.And test the adapter.

    If the adapter is fine , then your laptop may be in serious troubles, most common cause is motherboard gone.

    I see now you have those two leds on (led on adapter and battery on laptop)
    Then the problem is with the laptop.
    All you can do at user level is removing the Ram modules and plugging them back. If you have two of them, plug only one at time.
    Also remove cd unit and HD, and start it with only 1 RAM module, see if it load bios. If it does mount it back.
    If is not that then probably the motherboard must be tested with a diagnostic board.

    regards

Hi, my satellite pro laptop is powered up. I can not shut it off.


If the laptop does not shut down if you go to Shut Down, you can try pressing the power button and see if it shuts down, if not, hold the power button down for 5 seconds and it will power off.

Toshiba Satellite 1135-S125: Battery (new and Old) discharge while plugged into AC, then laptop shuts off eventually


Besides checking and cleaning the battery and charger terminals. Boot up and go into bios. Look at the status of the battery in bios and there is a calibrate function. Follow directions and calibrate each battery. If the battery is bad (wore out) pitch it. the new battery should be ok durring calibration.

On laptops it is highly recommended that U do not leave the power cord plugged in for very long periods of time. A laptop should be turned off when not in use and run on battery to keep the operating circuits (along with battery live) functional. In this case change is good. Always provide good ventilation. It's called a laptop, but that is the worst place to use it. flat solid surface with lots of airflow.

Ur power supply may already be damaged from adverse use as described above. If the calibration does not correct the problem, repair shop time. Over heating can shorten the life of the processor also.
Good Luck

Like you checked your charger on another computer, try exchanging batteries with the same computer. If the problem persists, you have your answer.
