This is either a problem with the battery or the motherboard.

If you can find someone with a similar Toshiba you can try their battery in your laptop, if it works then it's obviously a problem with the battery itself and you'll need to order a new one.

If it doesn't work then it's a motherboard problem which can be pretty expensive to fix (hopefully you're still under warranty)

Usually it is the battery went flat especially if u had your laptop for 3 years. Please test your battery if it is holding any charge. One of the sign is when you plug in main battery, and your battery seems to charging, however when you remove your main, the computer shut down instantly.
But if you plug your main and the battery doesn't charge(the indication light won't lit), it might mean you have got a mainboard problem.

Remove the battery and check the voltage on the battery, if low try to JUMP charge, if not replace. Also check the charging voltage with the adaptor connected to the latptop. If there is no voltage then the charger must be checked.
However if the battery and adapter seems good then the mother board is a suspect and it is ideal to get the help of Tosibha service for estimation.

Your battery probably got wet. If this is the case you are going to have to deal with it by following the procedures you just outlined until you replace it due to the fault in the battery.

My hp ez4400 starts up but quickly shuts down ,


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Toshiba Satellite: A135-S4427 / Won't shut down


Hi,
by pressing the power button in, the computer has gone into standby or hibernate mode.
Heres what you Do:- press and hold the power button for between 10 to 20 seconds.
that should bring it out of hibernation.
if that does,nt work. remove the main battery.
when you,ve resolved the problem, run a disk-scan via your windows operating system.
