Power Button Isn't Working Properly

Hi,

The power button on my A45-S250 has suddenly stopped working properly. I press the button, and (much) more often than not, the computer won't turn on. When it does turn on, everything works fine. Might this just be a bad contact? What should I do to take care of this?

Thanks for your help!

Harry

    Took it to a technician. He said it needed a new hard drive. $150 for the drive and $200 for the labor. I said no thanks, I can buy a drive on ebay and install it myself (after I open the chasis and check the wire!).


    Thanks.

There might be possibility that the cable connected from the front board on/off socket which connects to the motherboard is not connected properly , so for this either you will have to open up the chassis of the laptop and then check that whether it is fine or not.
Other wise
Take a magnet and move it along the power on /off button for 1 minute ( on the laptop ) , this will remove any static charge effecting the laptop ( very rare scenario ).

Or take it to a technician.
Also check the battery.

Driver toshiba satellite a45-s250 wireless network connector


Toshiba Support > Satellite A45-S250 Notebook PC > Atheros 802.11 a/b/g WiFi driver with Cisco WPA support for Windows XP and 2000,

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=555703&rpn=PSA40U&modelFilter=A45-S250&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663

HOWEVER, it requires the Atheros Client Utility v2.4.2.18, to be installed. If it isn't installed on the laptop, this utility needs to be installed first. Then the Driver above.

My toshiba satelite A45-S250 doesnt start the windows, it keeps rebooting and I am not being able to install it again, my dvd drive isnt working


Unplug the power cord, take out the battery and hold the power button down for 10-15 seconds. This should take your computer out of the reboot loop that it is stuck in. If it doesn't, try using an external CD drive from Wal-Mart or Radio Shack, your computer should register it and you can load the windows CD from there.

HOW TO GET TO THE RAM IN A45-S250


You will find the memory on the Toshiba A45-S250 under the keyboard. Snap of the grill that also has the on/off button on it, just above the keyboard. You will find two screws holding down the keyboard and another screw near the middle holding down a small silver piece that is holding down the center part of the keyboard. Lift the keyboard from the screen end toward you. Memory is located under a clear plastic flap.The power should be off and the battery removed during this operation. Be sure to touch some metal piece to ground yourself also. Good luck.
