Vertical colored lines have appeared in my display.

turn on the system by pressing FN key and then the power but this should start up the onboard diagnostics let me know if the line are displayed during the diagnostic if it does the its the graphics. when it ask you if vertical or horizontal bars were displayed. select N so it can test the LCD panel if the lines are displayed there then it is your lcd panel.To make sureyour lcd panel is fine it will display solid colors.

Shuts down quickly on fully charged battery. Battery problem or laptop problem?

Most likely processor problem. If battery is good and power supply is working.

When i unplug it it shuts down even though there is battery life left. It will restart without cord...

It sounds like your battery will need to be replaced.
If the power save features are set for high proformance and the battery is low and will not hold a correct charge, the unit will display those kind of actions.

I have a toshiba laptop, and in the last few weeks something weird started happening. When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries,...

Change your AC charger.
It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery level drops by about 1% every few hours"
That's the reason why: "battery has completely died"
If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on. "

My Toshiba Satellie P15-S470 turned off by itself and I can not mak it to run.


Is your laptop connected to a power source? If not it needs to be recharged...
Check also the battery of your laptop, it might be dead already... meaning even if it is charging the battery doesn't charge anymore... it may need replacement.

To check the battery... remove it from the laptop and find a flat button to check if the battery is charged, or half charge, or none at all. If below half then the battery needs to be replaced.

Usually the keyboards have an fn key. Press fn + the key that has the sign of moon at the same time.

Also you may try to close your laptop and open it up and see if that will wake up the computer. Somehow your power setting on battery are messed up.

Hope that helps you.

Check your power cord/PSU and all connections between the laptop and the wall!

This may also be a sleep/hibernate problem, from ACPI control. The "other" blinking LED makes me suspect that as the MOST likely cause!

1 To test this theory, press any key hat looks like "sleep" or "suspend". Wait 20 seconds to see if laptop wakes up.

2 if not, then press the power button and HOLD IT DOWN continuously for 10 seconds. If the blinking light goes off, we have discovered the problem! If so, continue with step 3.

3 Now, the computer will be "off" entirely, and we can do a "cold start". Press power button again, and wait for start up as usual. Note if the HD light has come on now, (and flashes to indicate the boot process is working, if not, stop and let me know this -or replace HD with a new/known good one to proceed)

4. When/if the laptop reaches normal desktop, check the battery level FIRST. If it is NOT full (assuming the plug has been in all this time, battery SHOULD be charged) your battery may be damaged. Go to step 5. Otherwise, if battery is good, go to step 6.

5 Turn the laptop off normally, and let let it charge for a a few hours, to determine this. Start and check levels. If it is not showing greater charge level (and does not fully charge after some more time) then the battery may be bad. Check voltage with VTVM, or if you do not know what that is, take battery to a repair shop and ask them to do it. Voltage should match or exceed the levels stated on battery labels.

6. Regardless of the cause, be aware of this fact: The greatest friend a battery has is ACPI/Power Saving "sleep/suspend/hibernate and related HD spin down settings). But it can ALSO be a battery's greatest enemy in this situation:

NEVER disconnect the power cord for more than a few seconds when you laptop is suspended/sleeping or hibernating! In fact, it is best to relocate the laptop when it is awake, to be sure removing the power is registered in BIOS. Why? While the laptop uses less energy in these suspended power states, if the laptop is left without AC power (bad cord, bad transformer/PSU or bad connection in wall socket) for an extended period while it is asleep, the battery has no "shut down" ability, so it depletes the battery PAST its safe depletion levels. If the laptop is "awake" when this level is reached, it shuts down automatically. But the paradox is, most laptops must BE awake to do this!
