Question about Toshiba Satellite A70 Notebook

1 Answer

AC wire connection may have problem

When AC wire is connected and when the laptop is not start up yet, the light for the wire connection is on (green light), and also the light for the battery is also on (red light). Once I press on button to start up the laptop, then the light for the battery is off. When the system is fully started, I check the AC power source and it is on battery instead of on AC power. The battery drain really fast. Within 15 minutes, it could drain from 90 % to 60%.

Is the AC power cord not functioning ? Or the battery is weak ? Or any other issue ?

Toyota tundra ac light switch keeps blinking


Wrong category Roger. Anyway I have read on a toyota forum that the ground wire on the AC compressor may cause this type of flashing green light of death. It was suggested the ground wire connection may be loose and the screw holding it may need to be tightened.
If your AC light is blinking check this first Toyota Nation Forum...

My Dell Inspiron 1525 has no power. Tried a different ac adapter, no help. Reseated the battery, hard drive and memory and still no power. Computer will not start.


Make sure that there is a green light on the ac adapter. Try checking the end of the cable of the ac adapter and see if it is damaged ( the metal piece that connects into the laptop ). Also check the port on the laptop where you connect the cable of the ac adapter. If that is damaged then you have to request replacment of the motherboard if your laptop is still in warranty.

My laptop will not turn on. It will not start up. I charged the battery until the green light came on. I plugged it up and it still didn't come on. What is wrong with it? Do i need to replace the battery...


No, it's not the battery -- especially if the battery "takes" a charge, and the battery-light turns GREEN.

Remove the battery, and leave the AC adapter connected, and try to start the computer.

Basically, it's time to take the computer to a qualified technician, for proper trouble-shooting.

Battery has gone dead. When I plug the A/C cord in the light on the charger immediately goes out and won't charge battery.


try connecting ac adapter alone without the laptop, check if ac adapter light will stay green or blue.
try another power outlet using the ac adapter alone without the laptop check if the ac adapter light will stay as green or blue. if all fails replace ac adapter.

if ac adapter stays green or blue try connecting to the laptop without the batt, check if the ac adapter light will stay on, if yes then try connecting ac adapter to laptop with the batt plugin check if the light stays green. if not update the BIOS. if fails replace motherboard.
