Question about Toshiba NB305N410BN Netbook

1 Answer

My Toshiba mini NB305-N410BL suddenly won't recharge with the battery in. I have to shut down completely, remove battery, plug in AC, then re-insert battery. This is annoying. Toshiba doesn't seem to know about this. Is there a workaround? Thanks!

    Yes, but only if I shut the machine completely down (and remove the battery first). While I'm working on battery and it runs low, I can't plug just in the AC and get power.

    Helpful and quick advice! I just have to send this netbook back under warranty. Thanks for troubleshooting what the manufacturer couldn't!

    There are 3 things to look in for this kind of problem. The Battery, The AC Adapter or the Motherboard.

    Battery Problem:

    - If you can't charge the battery but you can use the laptop without the battery and just using the AC adapter.


    - If you have spare battery that you can use to check if you will be able to charge it.

    Charger Problem:

    - If you cant charge the battery and can't use the laptop without the battery.


    - If you have a spare AC adapter or if you can borrow one just to check if you will be able to charge or use the computer without the battery.

    Motherboard Problem:

    - If you cant use the system using a new AC Adapter and a new battery or a working AC adapter and a working Battery


    - Motherboard Replacement

    Note: The problem requires testing the system or the components that can be the reason why you have that problem.

    If you have questions please let me know. Thanks

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.

Good luck.

Have line on the top black vertical line not so clear but its not normal

Please check if the problem can be seen in the BIOS screen. - you can go to the BIOS screen by tapping F2 repeatedly as soon as you turn on the computer.
If the vertical line can be seen in the BIOS screen, it is already a problem with the LCD screen and you need to contact the computer manufacturer for possible LCD replacement if your computer is still in warranty.
Hope it helps you.

My toshiba mini laptop NB305 will turn on but it wont boot up, and the screen stay black, how do I fix it?

pull the battery, disconnect the ac adapter and hold down the power button for about 10 seconds, then put the battery back in, plug it in and try booting it. If that works, you're good, if not then the motherboard most likely needs to be replaced.

My netbook display is blank when powered on.

You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB. If the laptop will not boot by doing this, take it to the nearest repair center to have it check for possible motherboard issue.

My TOSHIBA MINI NB205-n313/9 10.1 inch net book will not turn on

The laptop is not turning on?

Remove the battery and try boot the machine on AC power only. If the computer starts up turn it back off, reinsert the battery and try to boot the computer again.
If it still won't boot with the battery inserted then i suggest you send or take the computer back as there is a hardware problem.
