Hey,I am new here but I was wondering if anyone could help me out identifying a problem:
I turned the computer on one day and the battery was not charging. The problem appeared to be the battery, as I have had this computer for years and have never replaced it. After replacing the battery, I am running into an issue where I will turn the computer on, and after a few seconds it will turn back off.
However as mentioned in this post: http://ccm.net/forum/affich-596611-toshiba-laptop-shuts-down-instantly-on-start , the fix by bionik works where I will remove the battery, hold the power down and replug in and the computer runs as normal. I put the battery back in and all was going well. I left the computer for a bit and come back to find that after I put the battery back in (and I have restarted prior to putting battery back in without issue) the computer is repeating the same problem again, and again bionik's fix worked so far...
Computer is a toshiba qosmio x305 - windows 7 Professional
I've replaced the power supply in the past when it has died and i believe the power jack has also been replaced (same event)
Today, while I was gaming, computer shuts off and then goes into this sequence of starting up and then shutting off a few minutes after startup again.
Could i have purchased a bad battery? It seems to charge just fine.... or is something else?
