Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
I've got some kind of power problem with my A100. Power cord plugged in, but no charging(it means the power of the battery is zero, but charging light is on.) Also, the little charging icon on left corner is not moving.If i pull the battery out for couple of seconds and push it back, the charging icon start moving for 10 sec and stops.I did some investiagations to resolve the problem and found out that, maybe the charging control chip is gone.My question is how could I get that chip and install it?Or maybe there is any other way to fix this problem?Thanks
Does the system power on using the AC adapter?
How old is the battery?
If the system powers on and runs normally on AC, and only the battery fails to charge, the 1st thing I would look at is the battery itself.
Batteries in portable systems have a lifespan of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles before they normally fail. This is why portable batteries have a 1 year warranty regardless of the system warranty.
If replacing the battery does not resolve, then you most likely need a motherboard replacement.
