Portege M100 stop when unplug the a/c adapter - battery problem

Hi people,

Laptop for my wife, it's a Portege M100 3 or 4 years, which is seems a good machine, although the hard drive failed and had to be replaced recently.
However, there is also a problem with the battery charging.

The machine works very well when connected to AC power whether the battery is or not, but as soon as you remove the power cable it stops working immediately, it is to say everything, including the fan stops immediately.

The sign of the battery on the top edge of the screen/cover blinking orange.
I figured it was the battery that had given up and bought an another toshiba (IE not a compatible but the real thing) and he slotted in but still.

This problem above the hard drive has been changed also.

Any thoughts or ideas?
Thank you very much


> The sign of the battery on the top edge of the screen/cover blinking orange
Are you sure that it is a LED battery?
AFAIK the battery LED indicates the State of charge of the battery.
Green: charging completely charged and orange way. But in both cases the LED does not flash/blink.
Only the power adapter LED will Flash orange if feeding malfunctions and the voltage is abnormal.

But if the battery LED flashes then I guess this code refers to the battery failure.
You should always buy a battery recommended by Toshiba and not other 3rd party products.
The manufacturer of the HARD drive is not important, but if the battery is dead so you can buy one that is part supported by Toshiba

  • Portege M100 - how to replace the RTC battery?

    Hello, my Portege M100 RTC battery is flat. I managed to order one of the internet, but I can't locate. I disassemble almost every part of the computer, but if someone could just guide me and give the procedure to replace, that would be great. Thanks in advance!

    Hi friend

    It s easy to replace the RTC battery on your machine. I already did and I had no problem when replacing, I mean it's a bit difficult to find the batt. but I will give all that to my experience. ;)

    First look at the wireless lan card, West a slot under the slot lies the minipci wlan card. Near the wireless lan card slot is somewhat on the cover, this cover must be removed (quietly). The RTC battery is located in a white insulator, but before you peel this small battery, you must disconnect the battery from the motherboard. After unplugging it, simply lift the RTC and place a new.

    That's all, unfortunately I can't serve you with some photos, so you'll have to imagine yourself. ;)

    Good luck and welcome

    P.s.: If you feel uncomfortable by replacing the batt, then ask some tech to help you.

  • end of 2011 MBP stops when unplugged

    Hello, my MBP end 2011 (on 10.9.5) was most recently at apple, the logic board has been replaced. shortly after that I came back, he began to stop once unplugged. Re-start works, but only for a minute. system report states that, whatever it is the air out here? Sounds like a battery problem, I'm on the original battery, but I thought battery would just shrink, not just stop working.

  • y510p immediately stops when unplugged

    When I unplug it, the laptop turns off immediately.

    The battery only charges to 92% and go any higher.

    Does that mean my battery is defective and needs to be replaced?

    Do this test-

    (1) turn off the laptop.

    (2) turn off the power. Keep the battery connected.

    (3) try to turn on the laptop.

    If the laptop does not light up, the battery is faulty.

    You can contact the HelpDesk technique Lenovo by Chat, e-mail or call ()best way) and get a new battery. If you are in warranty, they shouldn't charge you.

    Note - important Do not attempt to unplug the laptop while it is running, sudden stop can cause damage to the laptop. (Your HARD drive may fail)

  • Portege M100 just run half the speed - 600 Mhz

    I have a Portege M100 that I found very slow until I discovered it was running half speed (IE 600 mhz). I tried everything in the Bios and in Toshiba utility, but nothing to do: always clocked at 600 Mhz.

    Is there something I missed? y at - it 'special' something to do to allow him to run at full speed?

    I thank the of in advance to anyone who helps!


    As already suggested that the firmware must be updated! This portable strange behavior happens especially if the technician forgot to update this laptop runs only at 600 MHz.

  • 2000 - 369wm: hp 2000 only stops when unplugged for awhile

    Our laptop stops completely at the bottom if it is disconnected.  It will work for awhile then all go off.  You can restart and it will say it didn't close properly and boot back, but then cut randomly somewhat later.  Already replaced the battery and it is still more than half charged when it arrives.  If the power cord is plugged in it stays on without problem. Help!

    @starvision ,

    Hello and thanks for the display on the HP support forums.  If you have already replaced the battery, and this problem is still there, then you have a problem with the fuel system on the motherboard that connects to the battery.  You will want to contact HP support by phone for repair options.

    Please contact our technical support at the 800-474-6836. If you do not live in the United States / Canada region, please click the link below to get help from your region number.

  • MBP stops when no charging current and 99% battery

    About a day ago, my laptop (13 '' mid-2012 MacBook Pro) stop when I unplugged my charger. I have tried rebooting, but nothing happened when I pressed the power button. I plugged it in, and it began to restart immediately. Since then, the condition of the battery has been marked as 'Replace' now and it closes fully when I cut the power - even time is 00:00 01/01/15. At this point, I doubt that it is a software solution, and I wonder if it's the battery or an internal connection that went wrong. I didn't let it fall or spill anything on the subject beforehand, and I can provide a record of all the stops if necessary. The only thing that changes is recently I replaced my old hard drive with a Samsung 850 (possibly EVO, not sure) about two months ago. Thanks for the help!

    Please make an appointment at the Apple Store - Genius Bar store and bring it into service. If you are in the United States or is unable to make an appointment in this way, contact your Apple store.

  • My Satellite phone (A305) stops operating on the sector/charger adapter

    The problem is that my Toshiba laptop series _A300 (A305) stops when you try to run on the Charger AC/adapter_. You can start with the power cord plugged in and it goes to the Windows desktop and maybe a few more minutes to the maximum before turning off.

    It will start and battery without problem_ _run, but if you plug the AC while it is in place and running on machine battery will normally DESACT instantly and restart to the message "Windows has been shut down properly."

    The adapter _AC works fine_ reading a 19.19 to 19.20 stable volts with a volt meter. He also _charges battery very well when the computer is ignored. I have two Toshiba brand batteries, and both work very well.

    An interesting thing is that the _computer works well on AC if safe mode_.

    I _did a restore_ of reformat/factory of Vista to ensure it was not software and drivers and still had the same problem before external devices had been plugged.

    It has the latest version of the BIOS and I tried to reset the values by default where something had changed. It made no difference.

    This is _not an issue_ of heating because _while it works on battery I can watch long videos_ without it cutting. I ran the air through the vents in order to ensure, but it makes no difference in behavior. Usually with overheating stop, the computer cannot be started until it has cooled some, but these cases are accompanied by Instant reboot.

    I saw on a few discussions that this type of problem, you can work around by disabling one of the processors in the Device Manager, but I don't think it is a big part of a sustainable solution or for the computer.

    Has anyone seen this problem before and you come up with a complete diagnosis of the problem and a real solution?

    I have the Satellite A300 and so far everything works OK.

    I would like to know what happens when you remove the battery and use the laptop with power supply only. Done laptop stops again.

    If this is not the case, leave the BONES run and put the battery.
    The battery is correctly recognized? Laptop turned off again?

    To be honest, I can't imagine that this question has something with the software or background process. Recovery image, that you got with your laptop is designed for this specific laptop mode. Recovery image has been tested and I don t think preinstalled OS has nothing to do with it.

    Complete diagnosis?
    And how to proceed? You know very well that the diagnosis can only be done with diagnostic tools, and these tools have only services. I hope that you find some answers but I m 99% there is nothing you can do about it. Maybe you should communicate with the service, explain the situation and ask for help.

  • Problem starting Portege 7200 - stops running and the light flashes

    I have a portege 7200 with the docker dock 2 dvd, no problems until this weekend, when it stopped starting.

    its plugged into the power outlet and it starts the first windows 98 after the screen time, works my virus checker then the screen goes black, computer stops and the led on flashes.

    ive tried to boot from a CD, using the battery, reinstall windows, all I can think about

    Thanks for your help.


    Have you tried to run the notebook without the docking station?
    If this isn't the case, then try it.
    Also, try to remove the battery for a while. Then try to start the unit only with the power adapter.

    But generally, if the LED flashes then this means that there is a hardware malfunction.
    The flash code can only be read by the authorized service partner. Guys are able to find the hardware failure.
    Well well, in this case, if the procedures described above don? help I recommend you contact Toshiba service partner in your country.

    Good luck

  • The music stops when locking the keys

    I have a weird problem with my Sansa Clip: it freezes when I lock the buttons.

    When he plays music I press and hold the home button to make it to lock the buttons.

    I get the message ' press on and hold the home button to unlock.

    the screen goes black, that's always good

    but after about 10 seconds the music stop and player stats to close down and also freezes at halfway to paralyze.

    Anyone have any ideas on a fix?

    This seems to be a firmware issue. I had the same problem and found the answer on a forum somewhere.

    Go to settings system-backlight settings. If the backlight setting is 10 seconds, what causes the problem of locking button. Just select the next level of time (15 seconds) or better and don't forget to save the configuration when asked.

    This solves the problem for me. I hope it does for you.

    You can download a manual for it from the link and Support Contact options are there, too.
