Hi Sacnyc,
Very first thing, is send me the picture of your DC jack and adapter. I have repaired A55-S306 more than 10 times, and can replace your DC jack if its bad..

Sounds like you have snapped the centre connector in the laptop. If you look at the AC connector on the laptop there should b a "pin" in the centre. These frequently snap off, symtoms are :
Battery will not charge
Will not turn on from AC supply.

There are some firm which will replace the ac jack for you but it will cost.

Here's the link to model-specific drivers:

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp#

Choose Product Support, then Show ALL models (instead of Show Current Models) and you'll be able to get to your particular model. Your Network Adadpter should be an Intel 10/100, or it could be WiFi card, and your modem should be a Toshiba Software Modem. Drivers are all there at Toshiba's site.

Where is the CMOS battery located?


Unfortunately it is located inside the computer on the motherboard. It looks like one of those small round flat batteries that is used to keep information when the computer is turned off. Im sure you can find the screws under the notebook to open it up.

Good Luck,

kc
