Intermittent power fault on Libretto CT100
Thanks to previous posts here I've managed to track down the problem to error 52h (B5V voltage under limit on boot) which is great, but now what?
It's happened three times so far. Various combination of mains, battery and dock power doesn't have any effect but opening the case to look for obvious problems seems to fix it for a while (I once had mould inside a 70CT that caused all sorts of weird memory errors!) so I'm wondering if removing the RTC battery causes something to reset.
I guess the suggested fix of replace the system board isn't really going to be an option on a venerable old machine like this.
I don't suppose Toshiba are planning on bringing any more Libretto models into the UK any time soon either? I've had three so far and rather like them.

Thanks for your comment. I donât know if motherboard exchange is bad idea but you can try it. For you is important that unit work properly and the hardware replacement (if will solve problem) is good but sometimes expensive solution.
I believe that Toshiba will bring new Libretto models on UK market. Did you see the new U100? What you think about this one?
