Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

When I try to boot up my A105 (with battery in or out and AC/DC adapter connected) the battery light flashes yellow 10 times. I've checked the output of the adapter and it is good. Any suggestions?


Answers :

Tried another adapter and the pwr supply of a different toshiba and the amber light and the blue light come on, but it still won come on.

The power conector was broken from the laptops case and I glued it back on the case and stuffed some double sided tape behind the connector to keep it from getting pushed in beyond the power cord's plug reach. So far it's keeping it firm in-place, but I still can't get it to come on.

The LT dead and can't boot to reflash BIOS. I'm going to try resetting the ram to see if it wakes up, but if it doesn't, then I guess the owner will have to decide whether to trash it or pay a toshiba tec to reconstruct it.
If you have tested with another adapter with the same results, flashing the BIOS can resolve a power issue.
