Toshiba satellite will not start

Hi, thanks for your help yesterday your solution of removing the battery and trying with the power adaptor worked gine. Does this mean I need a new battery pack?

    you might consider running the battery up and down a few times, and see if it will hold any charge, but do this when there's nothing important on the machine.

    also, go to control panel, power settings(behind display on xp) and set the alarms for higher ratings(25 and 8 are usual)

Toshiba Satellite A100-233 is not powering up


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
For your convenience, here's the link for Toshiba's support in case you need to contact them for warranty repair options :

My toshiba satellite laptop wont reboot. i try holding down the 0 button while turning it on and waiting for the noise, but nothing happens after that. PLEASE help me


Does it get to POST? (that is the BIOS menu).
If it does immediately press F8 that should get you into the recovery menu.
If it doesn't,

Try firstly removing the laptop's battery as it may be at a critical voltage and the system will not start because of it. Plug in your ac adaptor and monitor what happens. Does the power light illuminate? If it does it should then boot up, if it doesn't, try a known good ac adaptor before going any further.
If the adaptor is fine and the laptop still won't start, then you may have a mother board fault and should contact a dealer/repairer for further advice.
Hope this helps.

Laptop won't turn on


Well all I can think of is that the AC adaptor died, the laptop ran on the battery until it drained. So now you have a dead adaptor and a very low battery. Is there any local PC shop (not likely I know) where you could have the adaptor checked or replaced? Do you have access to a voltmeter? If yes check the output of the adaptor (across center pin and outside metal end) Does anyone else with you have the same HP, you can temporarily use that battery to check Laptop health/working condition.

Toshiba replacement power cable


Sounds like you bought a generic replacement item. The laptop has circuitry to detect which adaptor is connected to it. If it detects that the adaptor is not capable of charging and operating at the same time, it will act accordingly. The adaptor has a power rating in watts. That number must be equal to the original or greater to work properly.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Toshiba satellite pro a200 The laptop has stop recharging, i don't know if its the battery or the adapter or the actual laptop with the problem? please help!!!


First do not remove battery and use charger only. Lets start at the beginning first if you are using a UK three point plug check the fuse in the plug. Next some adaptors have a small green light on when connected to the mains. Another way to check the adaptor is, if you no someone with a multi meter (used to check voltages etc) get them to check if there is a reading from the end you plug into the computer should read 19volt. That would check your charging adaptor. Battery well if adaptor is charging then it is almost likely to be your battery.
If you have to replace the battery take it with you when you go for the replacement and ask them to check it in another laptop if they wont do this go elsewhere.
By what you say you have a fault with the adaptor.
Good luck

TOSHIBA SATELLITE NOT STARTING.


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.
