Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

Toshiba satellite a105 blank screen, blinking battery light

\015 I'm restating this problem because I accidentally posted a comment to solution number 2 as a solution number 3.The problem is that after a few hours of running with the power cord plugged in the screen goes black, the power light blinks yellow, the machine will not start again even from power. The machine is completely cool.When I first ran into the problem, I changed all the power options to\015\012"never"--the computer is supposed to be always on unless I turn it off.When\015\012the computer is in extended yellow blink mode, pressing the power\015\012button doesn't work. If it has been on battery, when I plug it in and\015\012then press the power button, it sometimes turns green and works. I\015\012don't recall but I think this is only occasional.A possible clue I just discovered today is that even while the machine is working and the power cord is plugged in, the battery icon on the system tray reads that the power source is the battery and that only 53% of charge remains.\015

Answers :

Well to me either there is a issue with the power supply or the power cord. I have had a bunch of laptops where the power cords have to be a certain way or nothing will respond. this could be and since it is thinking that it is running in battery mode then it drains and then causes the laptop to turn off or go into hibernation due to the fact that the setting you set for the battery where probably on the "when plugged in" not the running off the battery mode.

\015\012it leads me to think that its the power supply because its the most common issue with this but I think that the best solution would be to either find someone that can test the power supply and find the break in the line or buy a new one to test ushally if you buy one from a store bigger named store outfit and use the power supply to test you can ushally get your money back or goto a local computer shop and get them to match up the power supply or see if they have a adaptor loose that can be used for testing.

\015\012These could be possible solutions but like I said I am almost 100% sure that its the power supply and not the laptop because even if the battery is not in the laptop the unit should still power up. on most laptops that is.
\015\012
\015\012So that might be another thing that you would like to check but I highly doubt that it is that. because even a dead battery will allow the power adaptor to run on the laptop even if it dosent charge.

\015\012hope this helps and hope it works for you. let me know how you make out and if this made any sort of sence to you haha
