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?

  • ivanpa Jul 14, 2008

    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

Is there a power input fuse on a Toshiba Satellite C655D?


no, there is no internal fuse, unfortunately- because this sounds like a dead motherboard. the aftermarket power supply could have been over-volting, or delivering unsteady power- burning the motherboard.

OR the old power supply shorted, and blew the motherboard's power circuitry, and you were just running off battery power when you first got the replacement.

please keep in mind that, at times, the physical power input jack on laptops can also break, or come loose from the motherboard.

My toshiba satellelite computer's second indicator is always in orange colour.it is like that in the shut down mode also.why


The lights are indicators of power on or charging the battery or Internet connection activated. More than likely your battery is charging that is why when you shut it down the battery indicator lite may be on showing you that there is a charge going on. Check your manual for what each indicator light shows you.

How do I replace the keyboard?


next to the F1 key and the windows key (2nd upper key and second to last key) are two screws, usually under some covering. unscrew and lift top edge of the keyboard towards the trackpad to lay face down. Undo the wire ribbon by lifting the grey or brown tabs and remove ribbon and keyboard. Then install the new keyboard by inserting the ribbon on the place. Lock down with the tabs and put the plastic prongs (close to the space bar) into the laptop body first, and then close keyboard onto the final position. screw back in and thats all. nboulikas@gmail.com for any additional questions.

Toshiba Satellite A135 laptop


Try disconnecting power adapter and removing battery for two minutes. If the laptop still does not boot then there is an hardware problem. You can try taking out and putting back ram modules, but my suggestion is to take the laptop at a repair shop, if you cannot fix it by removing battery.
