I found this thread posted in September. My problem is the same as these people:
A205-S5804 Will not turn on - power and battery li... - Toshiba Laptop Forums
No useful support has been offered for his question, yet, so I posted my question here. I hope someone can help me solve this problem.
In the last week my Toshiba NB205 has had trouble turning on. When I turn it off, shutdown or reboot, it would take several (10+) attempts to turn it back on. Naturally, I avoided the problem as best I could. This morning I have been unable to get my notebook to turn on at all. Please help.
To help make my problem as clear as possible. The battery does hold a charge and is charged. The power cord is connected and plugged into a live outlet. When my the NB205 boots into Windows everything seems to work as expected. I was using this NB205 just a few minutes before each shutdown/reboot. The only problem is getting this POS to turn on. (Forgive the language.) If there is extra information you need, please ask. Thanks for all your help.
