My son has a toshiba a15 s129 xp sp2 celeron 2.4 ghz 1 gig ddr ram.
Some water was spilled on the keyboard prior to this beginning.
After it was dried for four days in front of a fan it ran fine for 2-3 weeks.
There appears to be a water stain on the battery sticker.
Now it will sometimes boot with just the battery, but stays on for only a short while then it shuts off.
Sometimes just to the windows screen,then shuts off.
Sometimes not at all.
While it is running as soon as you plug in the p/s it shuts off.
(The p/s has been tested and is fine)
Once it shuts off an amber light starts to flash a code:
With the battery in - long,long,short,short,short,long,short,short.
When I remove the battery it will not boot at all with just the p/s,and I get a different set of flashes - s,s,l,s.s,l,s,s
I have tried to find out about these light codes but cannot find anything on line.
Now after several attempts on the battery nothing.
Any ideas or suggestions on how to proceed ?
