Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A10-S100 Notebook ?

My Toshiba Satellite A10 S100 Laptop will not turn on. I've tried takeing out the battery for a minute & putting it back in but it still doesn't work. There is a orange light below the "power" icon that keeps blinking & I don't know what it means either, the battery is fully charged too.


Answers :

It sounds like the power supply inside has gone bad. If its not under warranty it will most likely cost more to fix than its worth.

\015\012Try running it without the battery and just off the AC power....if that does the same..I'd say start looking for a new one.
If you have a power adapter plugged in it really doesn't matter about the battery. The two don't work hand in hand to power the laptop up. If you pull the battery out you can still power the laptop up with the adapter. You your battery is no longer able to discharge the right voltage, the laptop wont start up...if the adapter no longer gives out the right amount of voltage, the laptop will not power up. Before you think you need another motherboard or ac jack repair, try changing out the adapter first to see if you have the correct voltage. Or take it to have the output tested.
