Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 Notebook

I own a Toshiba Satellite L300 bought last April, working fine yesterday but today it won't turn on and when the power cord is in there are no lights. I tried using another power adapter (My Brother has the same laptop) but still won't work. Any suggestions? Thanks

First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Hi.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.


Good luck.

Try removing the battery and using the power cord to turn on the system. Usually an orange light means a battery problem.

Take it to the purchasing party and get a refund or a repair if you just bought it. If it has a warranty by all means get it back to get it repaired. If you bought it from a private party always turn it on before you take it to see if it works first. Also you may want to try restarting and waiting a bit to pick up the screen sometimes they are really slow starters depending on what is has loading at the startup. I feel for you friend. John

Replace the AC Adapter, (ebay from £10.00).
Did it come with XP on it? Mine came with Vista and there are conflicts with XP and graphic adapters. There is no XP driver for the ATI adapter in mine.
Go online to Toshiba and download all of the updated drivers that you require. A user friendly system.

Screen stays black on startup of toshiba satellite L300


have you tried either switching between external and internal monitor usally Fn + F5 on toshiba or try plugging a monitor into the back and see if it displays.
if you get a display on the external monitor then its probably a screen or inverter fault if you donot get a display to an external screen then it is likley t be the graphics on the board itself.
hope this helps
