Question about Toshiba Satellite M35-S456 Notebook

1 Answer

Computer doesn't completely boot-up. Little history, needed a new ac adapter and bought a 3rd party/universal adapter (from 2 different vendors) and either adapter worked. Did get power to the computer but the computer never completely booted. Now bought a Toshiba ac adapter from toshiba and the computer still doesn't boot all the way, the scrren reamins blank. The beep/post code is: one long continuous beep; what does that mean? Thank you, Barry

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced

NEW Battery not properly charging


Batteries have electronics data that software has to get to properly charge it. Newer lithium batteries maybe different. But apparently, you have a work around for a lengthy use of the new battery.

I'm afraid it has to do with Apple's firmware on iMacs. A compatible 3rd party memory dealer is RAMJET.
From their website, you can see:
Apple Computers have proven too demanding for generic PC memory modules. Apple users have been forced to either pay Apple's high prices for upgrades, or buy 3rd party modules and be subjected to system crashes, boot failures, and sub-par performance. Worse still, most 3rd party vendors had no idea that Apple machines demanded a higher standard.
At Ramjet, we start with modules built 100% to Apple's original specifications, but we don't stop there. In our compatibility center, we have a comprehensive array of Apples, every platform built since 1996. Other memory companies try to test for Apple compatibility using generic RAM module testers, whereas we test our RAM in the same Mac you're upgrading.

I recently bought a Dell replacement battery from a non-Dell website from Amazon for my Dell Studio 1558 but it says that it won't charge because Dell cannot recognize it. Is there a way to solve this...


Your ac adapter is just a charger to charge the laptop and it does not have anything to do with 3rd party battery. You need genuine battery to make it work. Third party batteries generally lack the logic circuit that completes the battery sensor circuit - the only solution is a Dell battery. If they are claiming it will work than they need to help you or refund your money. Hope this helps.

Hi. I bought a generic dell charger replacement for my laptop and it doesn't charge the battery, I was wondering if there was some way to make the computer properly recognize it.


Unfortunatly there is no way to make a 3rd party AC adapter function with certain dell models. The packaging ont he adapter you purchased may say that it is compatable with your computer but dell units are very specific when it comes to which AC adapters will work properly with them. The best thing you can do is return the 3rd party adapter and purchase the correct one from dell directly. The reason that dall laptops don't all work with 3rd part ACAs is becuase of a signaling line build into the laptop's motherboard. This line enables communication from the SuperIO controller on the board with a corresponding EPROM built into the AC adapter. If the SuperIO controller receives a signal from the wrong EPROM (AKA wrong AC adapter) then it will not recognize the power source and may or may not work properly or at all.

Please go to this website:
http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~tab=2&~ck=mn
And enter the service tag located on the bottom of your dell laptop. This will allow you to navigate to a page with your exact system confoguration information. Here you will be able to see the correct dell part number for the orginial AC adapter for your unit. You can then order this adapter from dell. Even though dell adapters are more expensive than generic ones, they are guaranteed to work.

Replacement tips for Kensington 120W AC/DC adapter model 33197


I have the same model adapter for my dell, I believe there is a number on the tip that you need, have you tried ebay for the part they are called 'smart tips'. I think it's a different adapter direct from kensington now, but you can buy them from 3rd parties.

Laptop wont boot and the battery and power lights flash


a simple power cycle might work. Take out the battery but keep the ac power connected. hold the poewr button down for 1 minute. then hit the power button again and it should poewr back up. If this doesn' t work. iyou said hte battery light flashes so the problem isnt the battery..the problem might be hte ac power adapter..if you have a warranty this would be a good time to call them. Try the power cycle first though this fixes the problems lots of the time

Turning on problems..


Is the power source a 15v 5a or a 15v 8A? You more than likely have a Dead system board. The blinking amber AC power led usually means a power failure due to improper voltage or amperage.
More than likely caused by a 3rd party (non-Toshiba) adapter.

Sorry for the bad news. :(

Bad decision with new AC adapter for M105-s3004?


Hi,
if you look at the bottom of the laptop, you,ll see a voltage rated input. i.e 19v-3.1A or similar.
providing the plug fits, and the voltages are the same, you can,t do much damage to either battery or motherboard.
you can buy universal voltage packs now for laptops, which usually run from 15volts to 19-20 volts.
And several different connectors. for different models.
Of course the manufacturers want you to buy theres, and at thier top notch prices, but a replacements every bit as good. although may not be as superior quality.
check the voltage rated input underneath, if it,s the same.
Use it.
Mike @ compurepair.
