Satellite L750 - battery stopped charging

Q: Satellite L750 - battery stopped charging

I have a Toshiba Satellite L750 laptop. Works fine for sometime and then the orange LED lights start blinking and then the battery stops charging and laptop shuts down once the battery drains. When I notice the blinking orange LED light if I remove the power cord and reconnect, then I dont have the problem for some time and then reappears. When the orange light blinks the Toshiba PC health monitor shows 0% system power consumption, Battery condition good. I don't think its a problem with the battery because I already bought one. Can anyone help me solve this problem?

I just bought a new battery for my Toshiba Satellite s70-a-10c as my previous one stopped charging.

The new battery charges but won't go about 70%. Can anyone help?

For some reason I can't edit my post to correct a typo and add this screenshot so I'll post it here. It has gone upto 71% now but it always says something like "1 minute till fully charged" but it won't ever be that quick.

When I put the mouse on the batery symbol right down, appears a message: "Batery 8% available(connected and no charging)", but my ac adapter is connected.

Sometimes it charges, sometimes it doesn't. I've tried disable and enable Devices admin/bateries/Microsoft CA Adapter and Devices admin/bateries/Baterie with control method...ACPI of Microsoft. But the problem persists. When I get the batery charging it only arrives to 70-80%.

Thank you

I have purchased a brand new Toshiba Satellite S50-B. The first time I charged the battery I had no problems.

The second time, it doesn't charge at all.

What happen when you connect your notebook to the AC adapter?
Is the power symbol changed from battery to the AC status?

Can anyone help me, I have a satellite A500 that when plugged in works but when I unplug it it immediately switches off and yet it says their is battery power which is depleting.

I have tried holding down the power button with no battery in then switching it on and replacing the battery.

The help screen on Toshiba says use PC battery health check but it is not on the laptop.

All this has seemed to have started since updated to windows 10

Is anyone able to help.

A:Satellite R850 - battery and charging issue


What to say; the coffe has been spilled on the notebook and any fluid is not really good for a internal parts especially for the motherboard.

I have no idea what part has been damaged exactly due to the spilled coffee but it looks like an motherboard part is affected. Maybe the power supply electronic is faulty?

I think the notebook needs an check? and don?t ask any pseudo amateur technicians because such guys just talk about possible issues.

The unit needs to be checked by an professional technician (Toshiba authorized service partner in your country) who has some special tools and diagnosis software.

I have been using my Satellite Z30 mostly as a desktop till now (the charger has always been plugged in).
One day i had an option pop-up to increase the battery life (charge it only upto 80%) and i accepted the option.

However now i am going to be travelling and am unable to reset that option.

I want to charge the battery to a 100% and be able to take advantage of the longer battery life.
How can this be done? Help!!!!


A:Battery charging setting change from 80% to 100% on Satellite Z30-A-104


I think you have changed this setting within the +Toshiba Battery Manager+.
You should disable the "Eco Charge Mode"

I am having issues with charging my toshiba satellite A215. When I plug in my adapter it will say charging for a few minutes and then it will say plugged in and not charging...Has anyone experienced this and can tell me what the issue could be??? Thanks

A:Battery not charging on Toshiba Satellite A215

First you should check if the battery is correctly installed in the battery socket.
If it is, check if the cable is correctly plugged and that nothing is stuck in the cable port. Last, you could check if the cable is broken.

If none of these, i'm sorry, i can't help you.

I've found a number of threads with similar issues, but none of the solutions worked for me, so here it goes:
I have an L500-1GE, which is about 6 years old, but hasn't been used much.
Since yesterday, it won't charge when plugged in, and when I pull the plug, it immediately shuts down (everything goes black suddenly), although it shows the battery to have about 25% power.

I have just installed the newest bios (2.10) from Toshiba's official site, but I don't know if this has anything to do with the aforementioned issue.

Should I just buy a new battery, or is there something to try before that?

My laptop is a Satellite M70-165 PSM70E. I'm using Windows XP Home. I recently bought a new battery and it is impossible to charge it above 50%. I updated BIOS to 1.70 (for non Windows Vista users) and I still have the problems aforementioned. I tried to dischage it completely and charge it again, several times, with no luck.

Is there any solution?

One more question. There is no "EC version" in BIOS, only "BIOS version 1.70". I hoped there will be some battery calibration or power management after BIOS update, but there is no "Power Management" menu in BIOS.

Is that correct?

Thanks in advance.

A:Satellite M70-165 PSM70E - battery charging issue

> recently bought a new battery and it is impossible to charge it above 50%

In my opinion the new battery is not OK.
You should definitely check another new battery? maybe you bought an already used battery???

>One more question. There is no "EC version" in BIOS, only "BIOS version 1.70".
On the Toshiba EU driver page you can find one BIOS update.
I assume such update contain the EC update too.

Hi I just recieved my Satelite Click Mini a few days ago and there seems to be an issue with the battery in the keyboard When I received issues L9W-B - Mini Click Battery/Charging Satellite the laptop I fully charged it and all was fine I have been using the laptop frequently and noticed today that the main battery was down to I assumed that the power would revert to the nd battery but it did not and shut down I then recharged and powered it up however the charging seemed to stall at about After checking the forums I thought that a bios update to would solve this however it has not and other issues have flagged up The first battery charges very slowly and seems to stall at the second battery is showing at zero percent before update it was at it also states that its plugged in and not charging Also and i don't know if this is linked but I found it extremely hard to type in this forum as the screen is flickering and I have to wait after pressing each key I have had to post this on another laptop Any help would be appreciated I am worried this laptop needs to go back to the factory Many thanks Richard Waldman

A:Satellite Click Mini L9W-B - Battery/Charging issues

There have been a few ideas thrown around here in the forum. Easiest thing to try at this time would be to leave the tablet AND keyboard plugged into the wall to charge overnight. If the notification centre is still showing that it's not charging you might have to try a (maybe several) cold reboot (hold down the power button for 5-10 secs while tablet is on) to try to fix it. I would also ensure that Windows Update is up to date.

I'd just like to pitch in just for sharing's sake that BIOS update 1.70 increased my batttery life immensely. I was having to charge the tablet every night, now I can go every other night.

A:Satellite Pro S300-11H: Battery not charging after software re-installation

Guess what?
I?m wondering if the guys installed all the Toshiba Vista drivers which are released on Toshiba EU driver page.

I?m thinking especially about the software and tools like Value Added Package

I would recommend you also to check the device manager.
In device manager expand the battery area.
Here you should firstly uninstall the
-Microsoft ACPI compliant control method battery
-Microsoft AC adaptor
-Microsoft composite battery

Then reboot the notebook.
Check how the battery charge process would work
In case the new hardware would be found (these would be the three devices uninstalled from device manager) wait until the system has installed the driver, reboot once again and check the charging

Hi, I've bought the Click Mini and have been setting it up for my personal use today. However I noticed the keyboard battery isn't charging. I have upgraded the bios to version 1.7. What I see now is that the Tablet is charged, which is good, but the keyboard is 'charging' according to windows, but it also only stays at 0%, thus not charging for real. I do also hear a high pitched noise coming from the keyboard when it is trying to charge. I have only tried to let it charge while it is in sleep mode so far. Any ideas on how to fix this?


Edit: Another thing I want to add: When I first opened the box containing the laptop, I had to completely charge it first before use. It was not possible to start the laptop without charging it first.

If anyone can help me it will be very nice...

A:Satellite L750-115 and Factory Reset

Generally speaking you have two options:
Either you would use the HDD recovery option to recover the notebook back to factory settings, or you would use the Toshiba recovery medium (disk or USB stick) which must be created using the Toshiba recovery media creator software.

But this medium should be created as long as the notebook works properly…

Did you create such medium in the past?
If not, you could use the HDD recovery option BUT ONLY if HDD and partitions are not affected!

I assume the Windows 7 was preinstalled on your notebook.
Well, in such case power up the unit and press F8
Then you should get Advanced Boot menu… here choose: repair my computer….
Then Toshiba HDD recovery.

If this isn’t possible, the HDD recovery isn’t possible and only way to recovery the notebook is the usage of recovery disk…
As mentioned, if you don’t own the disk, you could try to order such medium here:

I guess you use Win 7 as this system was preinstalled by Toshiba.
Power up the unit and press F8. Here you should choose the first option called ?repair my Computer?.
Now you should be able to choose between several options. I think you should try the first option which allows you to repair the system automatically.

If this option does not help, try to set the system to the last good working configuration/state

All of them saying they are meant for Toshiba Satellite L750 L755!
These are different numbers to suggest that they have different configuration related to GPU and VRAM or their brand like NVIDA or AMD types, i guess.
My question, are they all meant to fit physically in all Toshiba Satellite L750 ?? have any one got experience of such mobo replacement with another board.
Will appreciate if someone can offer me any advice, as exactly same mobo not available for me, so i am thinking to put another similar one.

2. if i remove the function key driver the red indicator led light works but fn+f8 doesn't turn although the wifi turns on/off windows doesn't recognize off as airplane mode. but the WiFi is always on after restart, wake from sleep or booting regardless of the status before shutdown or sleep so if it was shut down when wifi was off on starting next time the wifi will be on with indicator led off and sometimes it turn WiFi on automatically after few minutes even if turn it off

Note: since a good time i have a problem in AC adaptor cable, and i'm forced to plug it in way so the cable don't move and try to not touch or move the cable to not cut the energy source. i think it's breaked at some point inside the cable.

Here you should perform a complete shutdown in Windows 8
In Windows 8, when shutting down a computer, actually a hybrid shutdown is performed by default.

Your posting is pretty confusing and I don?t understand what happen exactly. If I understand you right you cannot use Windows but you have full access in safe mode. Is this correct?

Anyway try follow: start Windows in safe mode and try to roll back OS to earlier time using system restore tool. Do it at first step, check what happen and post some feedback.

I have 1 laptop Satellite L750, and windows service audio crash randomly.

A:Satellite L750 - Windows 7 audio service crash randomly

For me this issue looks more like Microsoft Windows system issue (probably sound driver) and therefore I recommend you to check the MS support community for possible solutions.

I found this interesting post in the MS forum:
[Windows Audio Related Crashes|]

According to the 2nd post, the sound driver reinstallation should fix such issues.
In case this workaround would not fix the sound audio problems, I recommend roll back the system to the early point before this issue started to occur.

In worst case you would need to recover the notebook using recovery disk but I guess you should try the workarounds recommended by MS

I upgraded my Toshiba L750-A-210 laptop (short number: PSK2YV) to windows 8.1 pro from win 7.
but now windows crashes on every restart and i cannot log in to the system, also i cant recover because i deleted the recovery partition in order to install the windows 8 but i have it on another hard disk.

*do you have any ideas about resolving this issue.*
I read some threads on the web and apparently it's a compatibility problem with the Qualcomm wireless adapter also toshiba site says my laptop model is not supported for 8 upgrade.
I just want to get my laptop back to win 7

P.S windows shows this error: system_thread_exception_not_handled (athwbx.sys)

my laptop specs: 0203

Best Regards,

A:Satellite L750 PSK2YV: system thread exception not handled (athwbx.sys)


The athwbx.sys belongs to the Atheros driver? It looks that the installed Atheros Wlan driver isn?t fully compatible by the Windows 8.1 system.
You could try to remove / uninstall the driver in order to solve this issue.

If you did not create the recover disk in the past then you will not be able to recovery the notebook back to factory settings? to Win 7
I guess you will need to order the recovery medium from Toshiba in case you want to use the Win 7 again.

By the way: your notebook model has been released in USA? So you should check the Toshiba USA forum and support page for driver update.

I am having a problem with my laptop computer. I figured out that my laptop, when being charged or using the Power Outlet, runs at 100% CPU at times, and slows me down when running and working on some open applications.

I figured out that my cpu runs at 100% when using the power outlet, or when my computer is chargnig. When I unplug the powercord and use the battery life, everything runs GREAT!!!!! my cpu drops to a normal 4-8% usage with multiple applications running. WEIRD huh? Can anyone relate to this ??

I have a dell xps 12, bought in 2012. Recently the battery stopped charging. The battery shows 0%, so I have to be plugged in to turn the laptop on. When it is on, the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, charging" but after a day it is still 0%.
Since then I bought a new battery. Just fitted it, but now the battery icon on the task bar says "plugged in, not charging". Furthermore, when I Fn+F3 to show the battery meter, it says "battery charging diabled". There is no option here to turn battery charging on. Nor is there an option to enable battery charging in BIOS. 
BIOS does show battery performing normally, so does the battery meter (Fn+F3). BIOS also shows AC adapter as 45W, which is the original adapter.

I've had my HP Envy laptop for about 3 months, and yesterday I noticed that when it was plugged in it wasn't charging (the battery icon says "plugged in, not charging"). I turned it off overnight, plugged in, and this morning the battery was fully charged. It only seems to not charge when it is turned on. I have tried removing the battery, turning on, deleting the ACPI-compliant control method battery, turning off, and turning back on again (as advised in other forum responses), but with no joy. At first I thought it could either be a battery issue, but the fact it fully charged overnight whilst off would lead me to believe it's not, and is probably a software / settings issue. Any ideas please, I've run out of google search ideas!!

Battery Meter gadget shows that "battery Not charging"
Is it a gadget problem?

Please help me.

A:Battery Meter shows CMOS battery not charging

The battery you have replaced is solely there to maintain the clock and other BIOS settings (if you have changed them from their defaults). It will not prevent you from booting your system if it is dead/missing; all it means is that you will have to enter the BIOS each time and make the correct settings and time. This battery is not rechargeable.

Do you still have to enter the correct time, or is the BIOS maintaining this now you've changed the battery?

I am becoming more and more concerned about my laptop's battery each and every passing day. When I check the bottom right of my computer screen to check if my computer battery is completely charged, it says "0% available (plugged in, not charging)". I have had to buy two new batteries because of the same thing and they also read "0% available (plugged in, not charging)". When I unplug my laptop from the power source, it turns off automatically. I cannot even bother calling Dell to check this issue for me because I bought this computer off the street for $35.

My question in general is how do I get this problem fixed and how do I keep an eye on how my laptop computer charges correctly (or not)???

I have Toshiba satellite model C875?7304. The battery indicator on the desktop says that it's charging but the percentage is depleting. This is on a brand-new battery that came with 67% full and a new adapter. When the laptop is off the LED indicator in the front is lit like the battery is charging. However it is not. After leaving it plugged in for a few hours the percentage was the same as when I turned it off. Also the adapter wasn't warm at all. I've tried all Toshibas recommendations removing all power from the laptop and holding the power button down for 30 seconds to a minute. Also removing the battery for the bios and reinserting it. Still that hasn't worked. I removed the laptop battery and the laptop will not power on using AC power only. It's almost like the laptop is only using battery power and the adapter is not charging the battery or keeping the laptop on. Laptops only about a year old. Any suggestions anyone?

A:Toshiba satellite charging but not charging

As the laptop's only a year old the original battery should be fine and not need replacing. Also if it won't run from the AC power only something is wrong. Look for your receipt and if it's still under guarantee take the laptop back.

My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop had a very good battery life(>6 hours), but today morning it showed an error message saying  "Battery has experienced permanent failure and needs to be replaced." I updated the BIOS from A3 to A10, but it didn't help! The PC starts only if its plugged in and the battery charge is constant at 82%. What should I do?

A:Battery not charging, message says "Battery has experienced permanent failure"

It's quite possible your battery did suffer a failure; the Lithium-Ion chemical reaction may (which produces electricity) have finally broken down.
First thing to try is to run Dell's diagnostics. When you first power it on, press F2 to run the ePSA Diagnostics & see if any failures occurred.
Have you tried powering the laptop on with the power cord and battery, then once it's loaded removing the power cord to see if it stays on?
Another thing to try: remove the power cord & battery from the laptop, then hold the power button down for about 10 seconds. Then reconnect the power cord, power it on, then reconnect the battery.
From here, once it's on, you can try removing the battery again to see if it stays powered on or leave the cord connected to see if the battery begins charging.

Hope this helps!

Hi, I need some help with my Laptop. For some reason, my charger works for another computer, but it won't work for mine. However, other chargers work for my laptop. It is a Dell Inspiron e1405, and Dell support refuses to give me help because it is out of warranty. Maybe someone can help me here.

If it was only one or the other, I'd say it was the power jack soldered to the system board where the power module plugs into. Does the connection feel the same whether you plug in yours or the other? ie. plug nice and tight?

I own a Toshiba Satellite A215-S4757 laptop, and when I plug in, the battery light comes on indicating it is charging. After 3 or so seconds, the light turns off. At first I thought it was just something wrong with the light, but when I turned the laptop on, the battery says "Plugged in, not charging" It has never done this before. Any suggestions?

A:Battery Not Charging!

Two possibilities - bad charger or bad battery. Hope for a bad charger, when is relatively cheap to replace. The cost of notebook batteries are outrageous. Also, see if there is a break in the charger wire by rotating the wire. If the light goes off and on, it's a break.

A:Battery not Charging

If the system is under warranty, call Dell for repair.If not, first try a new OEM Dell AC adapter.  If that doesn't get the system to recognize the adapter, replace the DC power jack next:
And if that doesn't do it, replace the mainboard.
Without a recognized AC adapter, the battery will not charge (though the system will run).

A:Battery Not Charging

Sometimes Windows says ¨battery no charge¨ but it?s a windows power state error, you could also try to update your BIOS first, also perform a Reset to your unit (remove adapter and battery then press and hold the power button for 30/60 seconds)

Tried to update my BIOS but there's no update for my windows 10. Tried to reset my unit by holding down the power button foe 30/60 seconds, but that didn't work. Also did a battery check on my old battery and my new battery with HP Support Assisant  and by reatarting and pressing the f2 button. It said that the battery is good. Then I Checked the power cord where it plugs into the computer and the pin inside the plug is in good shape but the battery's still not charging. With the old battery it charge when it got to under 10% then it would upto 10% and stop charging afther that.New battery had about 77% charde on it now it has about 74%. Computer will run with the buttery out but with the power adapter in

A:Battery Not Charging

You can try to Press F2 button at the power up and run a Battery test.If the test passes it may mean that the Battery is OK. For a BIOS update, try to check the same for windows 8.1 and see if there is an update available.The OS would not matter as long as it is a BIOS update as these are made for all the supported OS versions.

A:Battery is Not Charging

Hi, This may be worth trying. First of all, shutdown the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter unplugged, remove the battery, and then hold down the Power button for a full minute. Now, plug in the AC Adapter and start the PC without the battery inserted, start the notebook, open windows Control Panel, open Device Manager, expand the entry for Batteries, right click on and the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery and select Uninstall - do not uninstall anything else here.  When the uninstall is complete, shut the PC down, unplug the AC Adapter, re-insert the battery and then start the PC on just the battery.  Windows will automatically reinstall the driver - leave Windows running for a few minutes. Shutdown the PC again.  Now plug in the AC Adapter ( with the battery still inserted ) and start the PC to see if the battery now charges correctly. Best wishes, DP-K

I recently installed a new battery in my Dell Latitude D610. I received instructions to upgrade the BIOS but forgot to do it. When I used battery power it ran down and I plugged in AC power. I saw it was down to 6% and would not charge. I tried to update BIOS now but it requires 10% power. What can I do?

Try running the old battery again, or try running with no battery at all.
Have you visually compared the batteries to make sure they are both exact?

A:charging a new battery

make sure your power adapter is plugged in tight and the power scheme in the System Tray of the computer when it is in Windows, says that it is not using battery but the Power Adapter. You might try plugging the power adapter into the wall socket directly instead of a surge protector. If that fails then your adapter is bad or the connector to the motherboard is.
