    Well, after letting the new adapter sit on for 24hrs. and trying it with the battery in and with the battery out - no luck getting the computer turned on. I popped the keyboard case and right in front under the space bar was a small green wrapped Ni-MH battery with the number 4E3 stamped on it. It has a red and black wire running from it and is plugged into a little slot by virtue of a small white plastic female clip. Would this be the CMOS battery, do you think? And if so, where would I get a new one?

    Any suggestions? Remember this is an older Toshiba Satellite Model # T1910CS/200 system unit. That's what is stamped on the back of it on a tag.

Here is the link to the original post

Someone indicated that the CMOS battery on your computer might need to be replaced but usually that will turn your computer on but not detect the drives. I'm sure it needs to be replaced though.

I know my Toshiba doesn't have the CMOS battery to store the drive and clock settings.

Let me know if that helps

    That sounds like the CMOS battery.

Reset password cmos toshiba satellite A65-s1064

The only way to reset the cmos battery is to remove the battery from the back, open the bottom of the laptop and remove the button battery for 3-5 minutes. Replug in the battery and close up the case. Once completed, you can then create a new password.

Computer seems to be totally dead both on battery and while plugged in. The only response when I press the on botton is three flashes of the center light with the charge symbol. Can anyone help?


I guess it could be hardware issue. It may well be worth taking it to a local computer store and ask them what the problem is. You should be able to get an opinion for free and a quote for the repair.

Could be the power jack is loose and that can be fixed by any computer professional at the repair center.

You should inform the customer about the warranty coverage. You have to let them know that onece the warranty expires they will be limitted for any support any computer manufacturer does have that kind of policy. IF they have reported the issue before the warranty ends they should still be entitled for any support or possible repair you can do but they we're not able to report it before warranty expired it's their responsibility to take actions with the system. I believe all computers got initial 1 year warranty for it .

Hi, you mostly likely lose your driver for your microphone. Unfortunately, Sony doesn't seem to support windows 7 for your computer, only Vista, or at least the drivers for 7 is not on their site. What you could do is Google search you sound card, microphone, and mother board type and see if your can find a third party copies of working drivers for your computer. My Mind is telling me there are more things may not be working on your computer as before. Are they?

Or you may reply to this with the type of sound card and mother board and microphone hardware your computer has and I will try to find it for you.

Or better yet contact Sony, -- I am sure your paid lot of $$$$ for the computer.
