Hello Friends, I hope you are doing well!

If your Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop will not turn on, the solution to your laptop's problems may vary between simple and complex answers.

If the AC adapter is not plugged into the computer, a faulty battery will cause it not to boot. Your battery might fail if you notice that it does not hold its charge for as long as it has been used.

See if your computer turns on by plugging it into an electrical outlet. If it is not turning on, then a replacement battery would solve the issue so that you can use your laptop while running off the battery.

If the AC adapter is plugged into the laptop, it would be best to power the computer continuously without a battery.

Does anything light up when you plug in the power adapter? Then try with another power adapter first.

A Toshiba laptop can usually start without the battery.

When the charger is plugged in, and your laptop turns on, it is doing its part, and the battery is probably dead. Just for confirmation, jump on to the "second suspect" below and test the voltage. If the voltage outmatches the rated output of the charging block printed on the charging block, for example, VDC Out 19V or 20V, then you need to confirm or try a new or known good battery.

If your laptop is not turning on when the charger is plugged in, then try the below to rule out power supply issues:

In the first suspect, your extension is going from a wall plug to a charger. Either try with a new one or test it for continuity across using a multimeter in continuity mode. A beep should sound from where it is supposed to plug into the wall and from where it is supposed to plug into the charging block. A beeping sound must also come across the parallel pins, with both pins plugged into the charging block.

Then, in the second suspect, your charger itself is not working or is damaged to the cable leading from the charger block to the laptop. Then, you need to test the tip of the charge of the line by comparing it to the rated voltage output noted on the block, which is usually 19~20V, using a multimeter in VDC mode.

In the third suspect, check whether the plug/connector inside the computer is damaged. It happens a lot, many times. You must then take the laptop apart and examine the plug by measuring it for continuity along the red and black cables.

Finally, by following all the rules, make sure that your laptop is either starting or not starting but not displaying any image, as the board could have been damaged, and that may be why power is not passing to the battery, or it is simply dead. There may be numerous reasons which could be caused at the board level.


We hope that with the help of this blog, our laptop users will be able to resolve the Toshiba Satellite A105 battery charging problem.

The answer is yes; you can charge a laptop with an HDMI! Should your laptop charger fail, you can use an HDMI cable to recharge your laptop until you get a replacement charger. We recommend only using an HDMI cable to charge your laptop when you are stuck and have no other options.

So, if you've been wondering how to charge your laptop without its included charger, the new USB-C option might be the answer. With the near-universality of USB-C, you can plug pretty much any USB-C charger into your laptop's USB-C charging port and it will (in theory) provide power.

If your laptop needs a battery attached to a boot, hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Reconnect the battery, then allow the laptop to charge for an hour without powering it. Your battery should be reset after this hour-and you should get a more accurate reading of the battery when you boot your laptop.

Insert a slender object such as a straightened small paper clip into the reset hole on the left side of the display to press the internal reset button. Remove the object you used to reset the computer. Re-Connect the AC adapter. Press the power button to turn the computer back on.

Make sure the cord connecting the computer to the AC adapter is fully plugged in. Sometimes the constant pulling of the cord will slightly disconnect it. If the cord is connected to an electrical outlet extender, make sure it is on and fully connected to an outlet. It could be off and not transmitting the charge.

You can continue to use the laptop without the battery with no harm to the laptop, though you will need to be careful around power outages, because the system will crash when it loses power just as a desktop would, which can lead to corrupt or unsaved files being lost
