Why does it freeze on battery power?
i have this toshiba system (satellite A305), that hangs each time the power adapter is connected to it, while running on battery it stay stable.
Also if on battery power (AC Input), it runs safe mode perfectly. But each time the power adapter is connected either on stand-up or when the system is working on battery, the system system will suddenly become unstable by getting freezed/ hang and the screen (monitor) become blurred.
Kindly tell me what I can do to resolve this issue. Pls offer me an expert advise , I do not intend to either change the OS or re-install the OS
kabir, if restoring your computer doesn't help, you want to take a look at this question. Toshiba's apparently do have a problem with one of the logic board capacitors. If nothing else you might also want to take a look at this. To repair your error may become difficult for you since you do not want to change you OS or re-install you OS. Good Luck.
Try this solution...
1.Go into safe mode
2.Right click on 'my computer' and choose 'properties'.
3.Choose 'Hardware' tabs at the top and go into 'Device Manager'
4.In device Manager,you can see treeview...expa
6.Restart your laptop and your laptop should be fine..
The problem is quite common. It's the fault of one of the main NEC/TOKIN capacitors located directly beneath the CPU (on the other side of the board).
The reason why it works on battery but not AC is because there's no significant ripple in the power when running from battery, but on AC there is a fair amount which causes unreliable behaviour.
Replacing the capacitor is not a trivial task even for those who deal with surface mount replacements. Typically we just break off the old TOKIN capacitor and install a set of tantalum caps in its place.
