Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi, I have a problem with a TOSHIBA laptop, model Satellite P30-133. The laptop was running on battery when it indicated power was going down, power supply was hooked up, later the laptop was off, when start button pressed the fan would go on for a few seconds and then stop, the screen and hard drive does not boot up but the power lights stay on so it is probably an internal problem??

    tried all the power options, still the same.

  • ivanpa Jul 07, 2008

    not exactly sure how to do that internally, could easily mess it up more (if possible) if i reset the wrong component. will have to look into it more, any suggestion as to how to reset?

    managed to get to the cmos resets (after taking the whole laptop apart) gold pads were labeled JOPEN1, connected them for over 30 seconds and put it all back together again. Still exactly the same, i.e. not boot up at all, BIOS not even activated. I'm thinking now that it must be the CMOS battery that is dead. Don't understand how that could have happened but i get it does. Either that or the m/b itself is in trouble, just like me!

Remove the battery and the power cable. Then put the battery back in and the plug the power cable back in. Start it up. Should fix it.

    Reset the cmos. It could very well be your bios has been corrupted. Doing a reset would fix this.

    On the toshiba the cmos resets are on the bottom. Generally under the wireless card. You would have to remove the panel over the wireless card and then the card itself. You'll see a series of gold pads with nothing connected to them. A set of two should be labled cmos or rst or reset

How do i change the cmos battery a toshiba a215s7422


The cmos battery used on the A215 is the soldered type. It is a small battery soldered in a small bracket on the motherboard. You have to disassemble the laptop down to the bottom case. Once you have removed the palmrest you will see the battery in its holder in the middle of the motherboard. The solder has to be softened to remove the battery and another soldered in its place. Below is a link to the picture of the motherboard with the battery in the moddle of the board.

Toshiba m55-s325 battery charging


I would try another power supply, as the one you have may not be providing enough power to both run and charge the laptop.

Please can you supply me instructions and/or diagrams for replacement keyboard for a toshiba sattilite pro a100 laptop


Jasper02:

Good day to you. The A100 is a Satellite, but not a Satellite Pro. Additionally, the exact model of your laptop will include a number of characters following the 100. For instance, it could be A100-Sxx11TD (where xx=22, 23, or 81), or it could be A100-STxxxx (xx=1041, 1042, 3211, or 8211). Therefore, it is possible that there could be instructions or other information available for your specific model. However, there are no instructions or other such indication as to how you could replace your own keyboard at Toshiba. They indicate in user materials that an authorized service provider should handle any such matters. I suspect this is because it is much more difficult than it may first appear - a notebook keyboard is not an isolated piece of equipment as it is with a desktop, as it is an integrated part of your notebook.

Unless there is a real need to do otherwise, if you can not rectify the issue with your keyboard, I would recommend simply obtaining and using an external keyboard. There are a number of different models specifically designed to be small and portable for laptop usage. See this link for Toshiba's keyboard troubleshooting: http://askiris.toshiba.com/ToshibaSupportSite/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=639911xml&sliceId=&dialogID=45559243&stateId=0%200%2045557500.

The link to the User's Guide is here for the A100/A105 product line. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_docTOC.jsp?moid=1484725&rpn=PSAA8U&ct=UG&soid=1266386&BV_SessionID=@@@@0620704634.1214760254@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccadeehkeldeecgfkceghdgngdgmn.0
The support home is at the link below, and you can choose your exact actual model from the drop down list (Satellite in the middle) on the far right. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@0620704634.1214760254@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccadeehkeldeecgfkceghdgngdgmn.0

There are a couple of basic concerns I have become aware of over the past few months, however, that you should be made aware of as well. First, there is a critical BIOS update for the A100 model, and failure to update could result in issues with your battery specifically and your PC generally. The link with the basic information, concerning a randomly chosen A100 model is at http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_supportNews.jsp?moid=1484720&rpn=PSAA8U&ct=SN&hideNav=true&sn_mod=1484720&sn_rpn=PSAA8U&sn_mpn=&BV_SessionID=@@@@0620704634.1214760254@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccadeehkeldeecgfkceghdgngdgmn.0.

[I do not know if the following impacted your situation, but if the battery was one of the bad ones, it could very well be the root cause.]

Basically, it was discovered that many batteries in the Toshiba models cited were defective and have created major issues - up to and including catching on fire! So, you should check your battery to be certain that you are not at risk. If your battery is one of those indicated as defective, they will replace it free - and they are also very definite about not using the machine on AC with the battery installed... Please take a look at the link --
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_dtlView.jsp?soid=1788033&BV_SessionID=@@@@0089026791.1212258658@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccadeefdghjdgcgfkceghdgngdgmn.0&ignore_sn=true.

Finally, if you still believe that you must replace the keyboard on your notebook, you can purchase it from National Parts Depot, which is the company distributing for Toshiba. See link below, and I would suggest contacting them to ensure that diagram and/or instructional document is included.
http://www.nationalparts.com/store/subcat.asp?catindex=1&catid=6606&XPR=06810D7F0D6701660B7E0A860906810D7F0D6701640B770A8009

If you need further assistance, please post back. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Hi, my satellite pro laptop is powered up. I can not shut it off.


If the laptop does not shut down if you go to Shut Down, you can try pressing the power button and see if it shuts down, if not, hold the power button down for 5 seconds and it will power off.

Toshiba Satellite 1135-S125: Battery (new and Old) discharge while plugged into AC, then laptop shuts off eventually


Besides checking and cleaning the battery and charger terminals. Boot up and go into bios. Look at the status of the battery in bios and there is a calibrate function. Follow directions and calibrate each battery. If the battery is bad (wore out) pitch it. the new battery should be ok durring calibration.

On laptops it is highly recommended that U do not leave the power cord plugged in for very long periods of time. A laptop should be turned off when not in use and run on battery to keep the operating circuits (along with battery live) functional. In this case change is good. Always provide good ventilation. It's called a laptop, but that is the worst place to use it. flat solid surface with lots of airflow.

Ur power supply may already be damaged from adverse use as described above. If the calibration does not correct the problem, repair shop time. Over heating can shorten the life of the processor also.
Good Luck

TOSHIBA SATELLITE NOT STARTING.


mine does the same thing and is new. you should be fine with what you have for a while, unless you just want to replace the battery, the battery goes bad after a few years, thats what I have heard anyway.
