Toshiba satellite A100 dead. orange steady battery light with mains connected and power button lights shift key and 2 function lights - that's it.


> orange steady battery light

It will turn GREEN when the battery is fully-charged.
Is there a problem with the battery not accepting a charge?
Remove the battery, to see if the computer will start without it.

> power button lights shift key and 2 function lights

Do these 2 lights just "blink" once, and then go out?

Does a "power" button stay lit?

Have you hired a professional computer technician to trouble-shoot?

Hi I only see blinkingorange LED light when power


Its seems to be very low Battery. You can remove Battery and re plug it again and check.

Also you can check it by starting your notebook with ac power on.

It problems is still there then you notebook needs to get serviced on autorized service center.

My toshiba satellite a135-s2276 won't turn on


A coworker used to work for Toshiba and said that this is common for the Satellite A135 models and under warranty the fix was a motherboard swap for a newer/updated motherboard. Otherwise the unit is unusable.
