Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer


Hi, thanks for your help with my problem yesterday your solution of removing the battery and trying with the mains adaptor was a great success and worked ok, does this mean that I need to replace the battery pack? The battery is 6600mAh unit but when indicating fully charged indicates just under 2 hours running time on battery power. The laptop is about 4 years old!! thanks again for your help

Mine does the same thing and is new. you should be fine with what you have for a while, unless you just want to replace the battery, the battery goes bad after a few years, thats what I have heard anyway.

Welcome to Fixya.

Here are the things that you can try for troubleshooting a "No power" issue :
  • Remove all connections from the laptop (including all USB cords, ac adapter)
  • Carefully remove the battery and set it aside
  • Press and hold down on the power button for at least 10 seconds
  • Plug the AC adapter back (without the battery) and test the machine
  • If it works,then try to power it again with the battery this time

    I need to know where the cmos or bios reset jumper are on a Toshiba Satellite A210. Maybe a picture of the board would be great. I'm trying to reset the bios password.

    Try removing the battery inside for the bios, and the jumper for clearing the CMOS. or try flashing the bios. I am sorry, because its very dificult to get the inside pictures of the laptop. Otherwise Download the latest bios and install it in your laptop. Hopefully it should work. Thank you

    Toshiba Satellite M55-S325 turning itself off

    Hi subji, try running the notebook without the battery connected & just the AC adapter. See if the notebook continues to shut down. It wouldn't hurt to raise the notebook off the table surface anout an inch but check the function of your notebook like I mantioned (without the battery first).
    Post back your results.
