Toshiba T1910CS power problem
I'm having a strange problem with my T1910CS laptop in that it is
having difficulty powering on. Symptoms:
1) When the AC Adapter is used, the green DC-IN light is steady,
which means its okay, but
+) If the battery is in, or
+) I try to start it (see 2),
then the DC-IN light will flash, which means the computer is
not receiving enough electricty.
2) When I try to turn the computer on it starts for generally the
briefest amount of time and then goes right back off. After
this the DC-IN light blinks for sure (although if the battery
is in it goes off soon after it recognizes the battery).
The weird thing about this, however, is that if I keep trying
to start the computer over-and-over again in rapid sucession
for a rather lengthy period of time (like 10-15 minutes) in
that I almost instantly hit the power button each time it fails
to power up, it works. In fact, each time I do the rapid
re-start power-up method, the computer seems to stay on a bit
longer each time. Eventually it passes some threshold and
"catches" and remains on.
Are these symptoms anyone recognizes? I do not want to keep hitting
"on/off" for 15 minutes to use the laptop!
