Satellite P30 seems to completely charge the battery only when the unit is turned off completely

Hi, I have my Toshiba Satellite p30 and only works on battery. This unit operate on sector or only on the battery as after the period of time go down the warning, then closes. The orange light fades in and out, but seems that it will only fully charge when the unit is turned off completely.

I only just received this unit so bit of a novice.



normally, the battery should always charge until it is full when the power is connected.
If you have an orange light flashes, it means that something is wrong. Maybe your battery is faulty or something else. This should be checked by a technician.

Good bye

  • HP ENVY m4-1015dx Notebook PC: hp envy m4 battery not charging but fresh when the laptop is turned off


    I was with my hp envy m4 core i7 for quite a while now... recently, I formatted and installed windows 8.1 64-bit installed. I decided to download some drivers from the hp site and I realized I needed to provide my model of laptop model number I could not remember so I decided to remove the battery while the computer is still connected to the power for the number, then I went back to the battery. the latter, I realized that the cell had not accused beyond of 7%, which was the level of support, until I removed the battery and when I checked the charge level, it indicated that it was plugged in but does not support. When I tried to repeat the entire process as well as close the laptop, remove the battery and turning it again nothing work and completely refusing to charge for its on.when I decided to turn off completely and then it was off it perfectly complete accused 100% operating battery estimated more than six hours of charge time, guys help me to understand what might have developed and what will be the best solution.

    Hi @Phanz,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    I entered which you have tried to download the driver on the HP website for your laptop but realized you need the model number.  You have removed the battery while the laptop is running.  Now when you reinstall the battery, it shows that it is connected but does not charge and continues to 7%.   You have repeated the process and close Notepad and removed and reinstalled battery, but there was no change. If you turn off it charges the battery to 100%.

    You did all your Windows updates?

    Have you tried the troubleshooter in Windows?

    First of all, I would like to try a Windows restore to before remove you the battery.

    HP computers - using the Microsoft System Restore (Windows 8)

    If restore doesn't work or is not possible, you could try a Refresh Your PC to solve problems (Windows 8).

    Then you can try the following steps.

    HP laptops - test and calibrate the battery (Windows 8)

    The battery method compatible ACPI Microsoft control is basically the driver that communicates between the computer and the battery. There is a chance that it became corrupt and bad reads the battery level.

    Step 1. Go to the Device Manager
    Step 2. Select the stacks
    Step 3. Click with the right button on the "Microsoft compatible battery ACPI Control method" which is in the list
    Step 4. Click on uninstall
    Step 5. At the command prompt, put a checkmark in the box to remove the current driver
    Step 6. Shut down the computer

    Step 7: Remove the battery for a minute and then put new

    When the computer returns to the top it should automatically find the driver.

    Step 8. Go to the Device Manager
    Step 9. Select the stacks
    Step 10. Click with the right button on the "Microsoft compatible battery ACPI Control method" which is in the list
    Step 11. Click "automatically search for an updated driver.

    Do the same thing with embedded controller compatible ACPI Microsoft.

    Last option is to reinstall your Windows 8.1 Pro.

  • Satellite M50 - charges the battery only when stopped

    My Satellite M50 battery only when stopped. Does this mean that when I work I'm still running on batteries, which of course carry out completely after 1 to 2 hours. Then I shut down the computer and it started charging again (orange led), and after a few hours, I still have a 100% charged battery.

    Of course, this means that the computer is not available. Until a few weeks ago it used to have the same problem if I disconnected the power plug then reconnected it: the battery needed to dump then to 0%, even if the power is connected, but now the problem is constant.

    I've updated to the latest version of the BIOS, I could find and even completely reinstall windows from the recovery disks, but the problem is still there. The computer is a Toshiba Satellite M50 - 126 model PSM51E, the BIOS is Phoenix BIOS v2.10

    Is it possible that the BIOS is damaged of some sort? I tried to reinstall V2.10 but he told me that I have the same version and it will not be installed.

    Hi lartech,.

    You can recharge the battery if you get into the BIOS and made the battery charging icon light?
    Are you using the original Toshiba AC/DC adapter and battery?

    In the worst case, it s a malfunction of the motherboard, and you have done what you can do: BIOS update and to install Windows from the recovery disc. If this doesn't help s a bad hardware work.

  • Tecra A5 - charges the battery only when the computer is turned off


    For a few days, my Tecra A5 has started to beep and stop it (like when the battery is low) then that it was connected to the power supply adapter.

    I finally realized that when the computer is plugged in, the battery discharge and does not use the power supply to recharge.

    On the other hand, if I turn off the computer, the battery starts to charge.
    I replaced the battery a few months ago, so I think it's still OK.

    The charger would be defective? Seems strange since it can always recharge the battery when the computer is turned off.

    Thanks in advance for your contributions.

    > The charger is defective?

    Theoretically; Yes, but could also be electronic supply on the motherboard is affected, but on the first stage of the AC adapter should be verified and laptop needs to be tested with AC adapter new, good work.

  • Want to fire green W701 fingerprint reader when the laptop is turned off

    I realize the amount of electricity it uses is trivial, but unfortunately the accusation that carries the battery isn't much else. For the most part it's just because I don't have a use for the fingerprint reader. I completely uninstalled the software from the control panel. I thought that would get the light, but the "light on" survived the uninstaller not so complete.

    I hope that there is a way to do it in the bios. If necessary I could re-download the software of fingerprint and do a from there, if possible.

    It is possible to do anyway, please let me know. It's a minor thing, but I'm pretty annoyed that I'd make a sort.

    When you turn on the computer (off-state), press F1 when you see the Lenovo logo (until the BONES start to load). "I think that you should find the fingerprints under security settings). It shouldn't be too hard to find.

    Edit: Looks like that I don't remember it correctly. In the BIOS, you have the option to completely disable the fingerprint reader, but you do not have the option to turn off the green light only without disabling the fingerprint reader. If you want to disable the fingerprint reader completely turn off the computer, then turn on and press F1 when you see the Thinkpad logo (prior to the OS). When you enter BIOS click protection on the menu, and then select access to the Port of IO. In this list, you should have the ability to disable the fingerprint reader that I am sure that will also disable the go-ahead since the sensor is no longer in use. Press F10 to save and exit from BIOS.

    To remove the green light only, or disable the option to turn on your computer by sliding the finger without completely disabling the fingerprint reader, in my view, you must reinstall the fingerprint reader software. Then, you must open the application after installation and type your password or by the finger scan enter enter parameters. Then click the settings button in the toolbar and you should have several tabs where you can turn off the green light or disable the use of fingerprint predesktop authentication.

  • Using the option of turning off Sleep

    I recently bought an mp3 MUSIC player.  I'm trying to understand the power of sleep off option.  I used it with success in timing the CLIP to turn off after 60 minutes.  However, after having turned off and a few hours later turned back, it seems to have failed in a State in which he has lost sleep (auto off).  Does anyone know if it is intended for a State in which neither automatic nor the power of Sleep off mode is programmed as default?

    I too used. Question is... are you asleep to music, radio or a podcast/audiobook? I quite often fall asleep to podcasts... If you do, your auto sleep interval come into play. Power off stops the Clip after a time once he gets paused (as when a podcast is finished) and at this time remains perpetually in fact selected by the user (as useful on the "rocket"). The function sleep, on the other hand, used for music files or radio... that you must reset each time you use. Hope this helps

  • Microsoft ON essential to keep all the time automatically, when the PC is turned OFF? I don't know to do.

    Dear Sir/Mam...

    I installed Microsoft essential to protect my notebook of virus & spy ware. When I turn off my laptop sound off automatically. Please send me the details to keep essential Microsoft on all the time, even my laptop is OFF please. Icon for turn on essential Microsoft whenever I start my computer. I can't find the related parameters in the ICONS.

    Once a computer is turned off, it's... Well well, off the coast.  But not just asleep, off.  By the definition of 'off' it does nothing.  Microsoft Security Essentials is a program and only works when the computer is turned on, as all of your other programs.  You cannot run a program when the computer is turned off.  The good news is that a computer is turned off is completely protected against malware are malicious software programs and does not work either.  There is absolutely no need to have anything by protecting your computer when it is turned off.  That said, I think that your concern doesn't really MSE all the time, but that's automatically done already when you turn on your laptop.  Not to worry.

    You see the pop-up warning that MSE has not yet started Microsoft.  If you click on the Start button in the pop - up notification MSE should start (but not immediately).  It may take a minute or two.  If you wait just MSE must start with itself and the notice will go away without having to do anything.

    I see the same thing when I run one of my virtual machines that you see when you start your laptop.  I'm very familiar with it.  It goes away in a few minutes and only means that from MSE wasn't the first thing the computer did when I turned on.  Windows moves to finally start MSE, but you can the long hurry up if you want.

    To manually start Microsoft Security Essentials, find its icon on the lower right side of your taskbar (called the "notification area").  The icon looks like a Red House with an X on it.  Right-click on the icon and choose open on the pop up list.  The MSE window opens on the desktop.  Click on "Start it now" button in the window that appears.  The window fades.  It may take a little time to start the MSE.  When everything is OK, home in the notification area icon will turn green with a check mark.

    When I see the Red House, I usually just give the computer a few minutes to complete marketing and the problem goes away on its own.  On rare occasions I start MSE myself.

  • iBook randomly started playing when the phone is turned off

    Just noticed this with the upgrade to iOS9. The phone is off (i.e., black screen, but still able to receive phone calls or be activated with PW or digital), and iBooks starts reading my audio book. We then see the iBook controls in the lock screen. No one touched the iPhone 6.

    Does anyone else have this problem? Suggestions to prevent it from happening would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Maybe it's not a specific question of iBook. My iPhone is not actively running - sometimes even just sitting on a table across the room to anyone - lights sometimes at random a random application without apparent reason. (This is especially awkward when he phones random random contacts!) Or, as you say, starts playing audio.)

    I don't know what causes it, and I didn't notice all the reasons for this behavior. I think if the phone was turned off in fact he wouldn't do this, but that sort of impact at the point of having a phone in the first place.
