If the laptop even after you had it charged for full charge does not hold the charge, then it is possible that your battery needs replacement. the final test that can be done is to fully drain off the battery , use a series resistor or about 100 ohms to short and drain finally after the laptop shut off due to weak battery. Now clean up the terminals and that of the laptop terminals of the battery point. Inser back and charge it again till fully charged . repeat the process about three times and see if there is any improvement. If not there is nothing that can be done but to change with an original replacement. Hope you try and see. Good day

Why won't my toshiba satellite laptop turn on?


have you tried pressing space bar (maybe its in hibernation mode)
or try holding power button for a few seconds (10) then turn it back on. as a last resort you could try take the battery out, disconnect it from the power adapter, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then place the battery back in and the power adapter and try powering it on?

Toshiba satellite l305d-s5934 Won't charge battery dont power On


POWER SUPPLY & BATTERY PROBLEM
If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Toshiba satellite may be stuck in Standby or hibernation mode. i TRIED HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON FOR 10 SECONDS AND RESTART, THAT DID NOT WORK. CANNOT GO INTO SAFE MODE. hELP


It sounds more like there was a charging issue and not enough juice left in the battery to start it up. Try removing the battery and then putting it in again. And then try starting it up. The adapter may be shot. Some laptops won't work if the battery is out or is shot even though the adapter is plugged in. Batteries generally need to be replaced every few years.

Also watch the lights on the front to see if they're coming on when you press the power button.

Toshiba satellite laptop won't wake up from hibernation even after holding power botton down?!


If pressing down and holding the restart/start button doesn't wake it up you might try Control + ALT + DELETE keys (together) - that will reboot it though. And if that won't work then you might have to pull the battery to reset it.

It seems that some laptops have a problem with vista and sleep mode, in particular, and sometimes hibernate too. You can try going under POWER OPTIONS under Control Panel and setting everything back to default, saving it, then resetting it again. Also it's best to avoid using sleep mode if possible to avoid problems.

If the problem developed after a recent install or updating you may need to go to an older store point to fix the problem. Personally, I just avoid using these settings as much as possible and use regular shut down and a screen saver for times when I need to step away from laptop for short periods of time.

New battery for toshiba laptpo 4600 but stillnot holding charge


Two options, though check your user manual (if you have one...):

1) Many modern laptops work fine on mains power without the battery installed. So try removing the battery and switching on just with mains power. And when you switch on, press the on/off switch hard.

2) Many laptops have a reset switch. Sometimes this is somewhere around the keyboard (you may need a needle - the blunt end!! - or similar to press it) or possibly under one of the removable covers on the underside.

Hi,

certain laptops rely on a battery being present.
Or a battery that holds charge.
i,d suggest refering to the user manual, or go on-line to the manufacturers website.
the laptop may be in hibernation/sleep mode. or require a hard reset.

How to turn on toshiba satellite M300 laptop from hibernating mode


hi shirleygty, is that automatic hibernation (the computer hibernates by itself) or manual hibernation (by pressing the hibernate button)? If either applies to your case you might need to update the BIOS information for your computer to fix the power management issues on it. You can get it here. Just run the file, click install & choose Install From Windows. Make sure you don't have any BIOS password or any external devices connected to the computer. When the update completed successfully, your computer will automatically restart, then try hibernating this time (manual or automatic). I do recommend setting the hibernation to 1min. at the control panel > power options > change when to turn off the display. When it hibernates, pressing any keys or the power button should wake up the computer.

Hope this helps.
