Hi there and welcome
Can you remove the battery and power cable from the Toshiba
Then hold the power button in for 60 seconds then release.
Connect the battery, turn it on and tell me if it now starts please
You need to shut down the computer and do this, then return to this web page please when done
ok, can you do the following please
Press the windows key + X and click on command prompt (admin)
A black window will open.
Type in it
press enter and when it has completed, type in
It will give a message "the type of the file system is NTFS cannot lock current drive.
chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts y/n" Say Y, press enter and restart the computer.
Please note, while this normally only takes 10 minutes to run, it can take at times number of hours if windows encounters many issues. If this is occurring it is critical to let this complete as it means you have corruption on the hard drive that it needs to fix. Even if it looks like the scan is not progressing, it is, please just let it run to completion. Windows will then start when it has.
Then tell me if it starts with the battery in please.
no, you need to do the instructions I gave please
ok, then Please click on Start->All Programs->Accessories, then right-click on Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator.
What did sfc /scannow say at completion?
did it complete the scan though?
Which model Toshiba do you have?
I need the model numbers and letters please
ok, go to my link
Choose Portable, Satelite, then the model number
then download and install the chipset utility
Once installed, restart and tell me if you still have the problem please
Sorry I do not understand your response.... 0 items found where? What are you referring to
its there, I am seeing it., you need to use the values I gave
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
ok, Date you leave blank, it was only the value I asked you to do.
download and install the chipset utility
if you remove and put batter back in does this stop the blinking?
ok, if you shut it down, take out the battery, then start it up then put the battery in like you were doing before, does it stop blinking?
ok, its a faulting battery, the drivers got it to start with it faulting, but the battery itself is at fault.
You will need to get a replacement battery and you can get one from my link below
