Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M45-S359 PC Notebook ?

I have a Toshiba Satellite M45-S359, Power Supply Problem.

\015 I have a Toshiba Satellite M45-S359,and about a year after i bought it, the laptop would not turn on with power cord or battery, no lights, nothing. I took it to a computer store and they tell me that the motherboard needs replaced. Is this the correct answer?\015

Answers :

Hi there.
It is a possibility that the motherboard has blown, as a PC technician i would also check other possibilities first before condemning it.
The components to check are the power adapters, both on the power supply and the adapter socket on the laptop, check that the pin is not loose or gone completely, if its very loose or missing then you have your answer and it can be repaired.
Also have the PB (power board) checked, it could also be that.
You can check the pin yourself but a technician will have to check the PB.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!
It could be the motherboard as it is what is powered initially and distributes power to all other parts.
\015\012such a problem can only be diagnosed by checking physically but if you are asking whether a motherboard can be the cause, then yes it can

Power issues My Toshiba satellite A135-S4527 has some power isuues that I need help with. I usually run it with the AC adapter and very rarely run off batteries. In the last couple of weeks, it started to run off the batteries regardless of AC power or not and it takes at least a day to fully charge the battery. Now it is rare that I can use the laptop because it will not run off of the power supply. Can anyone help with this problem?

My Toshiba Satellite M50 laptop wont turn on.. the battery has lost it's charge, and the AC adapter no longer seems to provide any juice. Is this likely a problem with the adapter, or the laptop itself? I've read that the Toshiba Satellite line has problems with power supply, and that this is a fairly common issue on older models. (mine is now about 3.5 years old). If it is a computer problem (and not an adapter problem), is it worth spending the money to have it repaired? Thanks!
