Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook ?

My toshiba laptop wont stay on, wheneve I turn it on it automatically powers off

Answers :

I have the solution for the non booting Toshiba that I wrote almost a year ago. This tutorial (written and pics from the repair of my m35) is applicable to laptops that shut down without any warning, laptops that turn on only sometimes, and laptops that simply refuse to turn on (LEDs blink, fan spins up for a second and then everything just goes dead). So if your laptop does not turn on, it goes completely dead within a few minutes after bootup, here's the link to the tutorial. The repair takes about an hour, there's no need of replacing any parts, reinstalling any software or any other thing. The only investment in repairing your laptop with this tutorial is your time. Basically, you can repair your laptop within the hour, without spending any money for any parts or software.

I have a Toshiba 1405-s171 serial # 72154211P. The green power light would not go on, but the laptop would still function properly. Then I started to get a message something to the effect that the battery was running low---even when the battery was not installed. So I thought it might be the A/C power adapter and got a new one. The laptop functioned awhile and then got the same battery low-shutting down message. Now when plugged in and turned on there are no lights. When turned on the DVD
