Tecra 9100 comes on intermittently and turns off after 10-15 seconds

Referring to a Toshiba Tecra 9100, model No.: PT910E-602SF-FR

The power button normally doesn't light up at all, even if sometimes it starts normally, starts to load windows, then always turns off after 5 to 15 seconds in any case.

It always requires the batteries very well, but it won t turn on. I ve checked the ram, hard drive and I re - set the default bios - nothing prevents to cut if you can get it to turn on.

Any ideas what could be the problem? Any help appreciated, it s the second time I had - the same problem the last time!

Thank you


Have you already tried to clean the fan? Maybe a lot of dust blocking the fan for laptop can start t, and then turns off itself due to a higher temperature. It would be interesting to try to clean it.

But in my opinion, you've done everything you can do, and it looks like a malfunction of the motherboard. If cleaning using fan doesn t I think the motherboard is faulty or something else. If you are familiar with the disassembly of the laptop, you can try to fix it yourself with second hand parts. Otherwise it s time for a new laptop I think

  • Satellite A60-712 - turn off after 2-3 seconds

    Hello everyone.

    I am trying to fix this Satellite A60-712; He came to me without feeder, but I found a compatible and it seems to work: CC in LED lights up and the battery starts to charge.

    My problem is that this starts Mobile for awhile, radiator begins to turn, all the lights are normally, but, all of a sudden everything turns off after 2-3 seconds. I have observed that this machine has only one slot of free RAM and noted that it has integrated the module memory motherboard; that would be the problem? Or another reason?

    Could someone help me?
    Thank you.


    > it came to me without feeder, but I found a compatible
    Can you please test it with a Toshiba original AC/DC adapter? The same thing is happening?

    If the laptop has already integrated memory motherboard there is no problem. Alternatively, you can use the laptop without additional RAM module.

    In the worst cases, you need professional help of an authorized service provider. :(

  • HP zr2740w turns off after a few seconds

    I had a HP zr2740w for 5 months now works fine. But then I had a disc crasch and had to reinstall everything.

    The monitor is correctly copied to windows and the resolution 2560 x 1440 (recommended). Everything works very well for a few seconds then it stops. (no light in the led). If I click the power button on front it sources fixed blue lights and work for a few more seconds before that the led turns off (not orange).

    I installed all the latest drivers.

    graphics Nvidia GeForce GTX 560Ti 4 GB card.  Driver (October 2, 2012)

    Monitor HP ZR2740w IPS Driver (March 23, 2011)

    So the problem is not related to the cable (use the green to dual link dvi cable).

    I am running windows 7 ultimate 64-bit.

    Credits to HP support. They came and replaced the monitor within 24 hours. Now everything works perfectly.

  • Monitor turns off after a few seconds on Satellite A50

    The monitor of my laptop A50 has this morning began to be empty. The monitor works for about 3 or 4 seconds after you start / change the screens (with Fn + F5 or Ctrl + Alt + F3) but then goes off completely new. I am currently using an external monitor that works exactly as it should.

    It started to take place after the restart of the hibernation mode overnight.

    I rebotted the machine, I have re-installed the driver monitor, or which has had no effect.

    Any ideas? -I prefer not to have to take it for repair because the monitor is obviously able to operate and the guarantee of lack at the end of last month.


    have you ever tried AC disconnect and remove the battery to you´ve? If not, then make and watch what happens. Generally, these problems of hibernation
    could be solved by removing all power supply to the machine.

  • Satellite P300 - 20 H refresh the screen every 10 minutes and turn off during 3 sec


    Basically, I bought my P300 Sat about a month previously and each time it runs, battery, the same error will occur...
    It will update the screen every 10 minutes or more and turn off for 2-3 seconds.

    This isn't a big problem, but it is annoying that I can not sort.
    I tried to run a check of problem to find a solution, but he says that he can not find a.

    Help, please
    Thank you.


    Can you please explain what you mean with refresh? And what exactly is happening?

    It is not easy to say what the reason is for this, but have tested an external monitor on the laptop? And you can determine if it s a problem with the internal display or not.

    In addition, you must make sure that you have installed the latest display driver and BIOS. The two you can find on the Toshiba site:
    http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com-online decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    If you installed a display driver Toshiba not you should remove it. These display drivers can often cause problems and don t have protection against overheating.

  • Computer Toshiba laptop turns off after 3 seconds

    I can't understand what is happening with my computer, but I hope that this information will help you. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    There are 3 computers involved. One is a Toshiba laptop Satellite L300D Vista I had in December 2008 and the other two are Toshiba Satellite M110 XP portable computers that we got in December 2006 I think.

    The problem started with the Vista. It stops just one day and when I tried to turn it back on, it would show the Toshiba screen for a few seconds and then die. He was the life of the battery. Tried everything, could not, so I have restored the default computer. After it's on, I loaded my music in my external hard drive and a few days later, he crashed again. I restored it again and load my music back in, and then a few days later, he crashed again. Now when I try to restore it, it does not accept the restore disc. The hard drive flashes orange several times and the disc not spin fast enough to start doing anything.

    I decided to forget the vista computer, I had a year and a half... And started using my xp computer is a few years old. I've ONLY used to browse Craigslist (after I started using it instead of my Vista computer for a few days, after that the Vista) and not load any music in there. This computer has worked since then, but about a week after the death of my vista, my xp now has the same problem. It turns on for a while and then turns off immediately. Since they are the two Toshibas, they can use the same chargers so I would use the charger that comes with the vista or another, that I got off eBay a few years ago. Been using two wires forever and then everything suddenly this question not sure that it of a problem with the power or not, but one thing I noticed was my vista computer would make a rattling noise from inside the computer only when has been plugged in the charger from eBay, and I noticed my xp making the same sound as that connected with the charger from eBay just before you die too.

    My brother also has a toshiba satellite m110 xp laptop, and we tried a few things with the vista computer to try to make it work. A site offered to take the RAM and try to turn it on. Nothing that's happened. We took the ram from my brothers computer which works very well and put it in the vista. Nothing happened. We took the hard drive from her computer and put it in the vista and the computer DID start up (which was great cause I've not seen on in about a month) but it started up to a blue screen. Put us the hard drive in my brothers xp and the computer was working fine... For a few hours. Now the computer will not start correctly and we are trying to restore his computer but couldn't find the restore disc. Her hard drive was in my computer literally 15 seconds and his computer is now toast.

    I don't care about my laptop toshiba satellite m110 xp, but I want a solution for my toshiba laptop satellite L300D vista, and I also want to get my brothers running again because I ruined. I don't know much about computers, but my guess is that there is nothing wrong with the ram or hard drives, but something else in my vista computer that is ruining the hard drives. That still doesn't explain why my XP computer is turn off after a few seconds suddenly well. The only thing that the Vista and my XP have in common, is that they used the same power cords (which always worked fine)

    If anyone can help me out or point me in the right direction, which
    would be AMAZING! Thank you very much for your time


    If you have problems with the Toshiba recovery media, you will need to contact Toshiba.

    It's the Toshiba recovery process.

    Each manufacturer has their own particular recovery process.

    And as it is now failing to do recovery required, they would be the best people to contact about this.

  • HP DV6-6B25TX turn off after 10 to 15 seconds, regardless of the power of the battery or power supply


    MY DV6-6B25TX is cutting off after 10-15 seconds, regardless of the battery power or AC power.

    Here's the complete scenario of what happened in recent weeks:--

    Two weeks back I was using the laptop with the power adapter is plugged in for charging, the battery got charged up to 99% then it stopped charging and display the battery icon text, "plugged in, not charging".

    A return of the week, the battery was 20%, after plugging in the charger, always the same message "Plugged in, no charging current".

    Now the laptop does not meet the key power when the battery is inserted.

    If I remove the battery and back again, it starts without pushing the power button and turns off after 10 seconds, well before Windows starts.

    She stops even on the Bios screen, OS is not definitely the question.

    When I plug in charger and press the power button / stop, the same thing, i.e. starts and shutts off after 10 to 15 seconds, regardless of the BIOS or Windows startup screen.

    I removed the ram and but again, but the problem still persists.

    Also there is no issue of overheating due to dust, as I've barely used the laptop for a few hours, the phone is about 6 months and under warranty.

    Please advice ASAP.

    Thanks in advance.

    Honestly, something prevents the battery charge. Computer laptop closing seconds after that reinsert the battery is a good indication the battery just is not getting charged. This could be a battery failure, charger, port, or in rare cases of charge motherboard.

    Since it's under warranty, I recommend you contact HP support that there is no easy solution for this on the forums. It's a hardware problem.

  • Monitor turns off after 5 minutes & password protect when he wakes up. View properties - > screen saver "Wait: __minutes" and "on RESUME, Password Protect" checkboxes are grayed out.

SHEESH!

    When I click on Start-> settings-> Control Panel-> display-> Display Properties-> screen saver , the "Wait: __minutes" and "On resume, password protect" checkboxes are GRISEES OUT [you can't edit these settings] . In addition, the default screen saver is set to void and no matter how many times I change it to something else and click 'Apply' return empty by default.

    Hello JDG_SF, welcome.

    These options are very likely controlled by your GP (Group Policy) settings on your domain. Due to the nature of the work of rights how administrative, there is no way to work around this problem, unless you have access to change group policy settings that affect all the machines on your network.

    You would need to access or to change the settings of GP or find someone who already has access.

  • Wireless radio turns on and turns off...

    Hi new here and I thank very you much for your help.

    My wireless radio turns off after five minutes on its own.  I saw on the net a fix by going to Access IBM...

    Open connections to access and go in Configure, then global settings.  Uncheck the box "Enable Wireless LAN automatic radio"

    Logins will be automatically turn off the wireless connection when idle to save power.     The only problem here is that Access IBM does not.  He gets up and you can not click on anything.  I read that it is because there was a security hole in an old version of Adobe Access IBM used, and they is plugged but never implemented up to date. You can not use this...    Anyone know how to bypass this or another solution to my problem.   I have a T-40, is said by the way.

  • Satellite A60-181 heat up and turns off.

    Hope someone out there can help you.
    I was not able to use my A60-181 for awhile without being constantly plugged to electricity.
    And it seems to warm up and turns off.

    I bought a new battery, but I still get the same problem... and it is only 2 years old!
    Someone has an idea of what I need to do?

    In my view, this case is clear. It s a simple overheating. Usually the laptop stops automatically to prevent laptop damage material. Usually, this occurs if the laptop fans twist with speed and maximum performance.

    The reason for this behavior could be a dust and debris inside the laptop. Especially after 2 years of work and aspiration, the dust has a bad influence on the rotation of the fan.

    The module of cooling for computer laptop cleaning could help!
    But if you have no experience of it please contact the technician. It is recommended to clean the fans professionally.
