Hi, I have a 3 year old toshiba satellite pro and recently I've noticed that whenever the laptop is plugged in to the AC ( ie when I want to charge it while the laptop is on) it shuts down after about one second. Therefore the only way I can use my laptop is of I shut it down, charge it and use it on battery. In summary I can't charge my laptop when it's on. What might be the problem?
Thanks a bunch any help will be really appreciated
Ok I will try testing it.this laptop has has so many problems over the years that I fear it miff be he motherboard. I'd it turns out to be the Motherboard is there anything I can do to fix it or is it the pretty much dead?
If your problem is a motherboard one, you can go and buy a new one and replace it. When you charge your laptop did you hear the fan spin before it suddenly shut down. It may be a overheating issus. Have you consider that?
My Toshiba L555 also had this problem. From what I read and what the person at the store told me, it sounds like problems with the motherboard. All of this happened after my 1-year warranty expired. I have a computer that's almost 10-years old and it still works. My mom and dad have a Packard-Bell with a 5-1/4 drive that still works. What does that tell you about Toshiba?
I have a two year Satellite. replaced the motherboard in first year. Has now shut down after losing date and time settings repeatedly. Now when I attempt to boot it up, the DVD clicks twice and the the machine shuts down. With battery and AC power. During the first year there were some sequencing of keys that helped then. Does anyone know about this?
No matter if I had my battery disconnected (running off of the power supply) or using just the battery, my Toshiba would shut down. Right now, I've had it plugged into the power supply, with the battery in it. It's been running for 3 hours now. The only difference is that I have my ceiling fan blowing down on it. Therefore, I've come the the conclusion that it is an overheating problem. What do you mean by "sequencing of keys"?
nothing ,my wifes Toshiba is over 2 yrs old still working on same windows install since we bought it and its used every day and my dad's 84,im 58 ,my brother was 24 when he died in 1973,and we we all the same model,just different versions
