This may seem a silly problem, but my Toshiba laptop will not turn on and I wonder if, should it be a battery problem, then it should turn on if using charger? Mines will not do that. I don't know whether to buy a new charger, or battery, or both. I'm inclined to think it's the battery as even when it's been charged and is then unplugged from electrical socket, the battery runs out in a matter of minutes.

Re: Laptop Won't Boot
This can be a problem with the power supply unit of the laptop itself because if this is a problem with the battery the laptop should boot up if its plu in to a power outlet but you said it still not power on, so its not problem with the battery or the power adapter...

Re: Laptop Won't Boot
You'll need to troubleshoot your laptop in order to know what the exact problem is. First try to plug it in with the battery on and try turning the laptop on. Next would be to remove the battery and plug the computer. If this doesn't work then it's definitely the AC Adapter and you'll probably need to call toshiba to purchase a new one from them or if you're still under warranty then have it replaced. They also have some qualifiers on whether an AC adapter or battery is qualified for replacement even if it's under warranty. Just call them on 1-800-457-7777 and ask their technical support reps about this.

Hello, If the battery won't charge and the laptop won't turn on but the ac adapter works with other laptops, then the problem is the port where you plugin the ac adapter. Some of the laptops has it built in to the motherboard. So you might need to have it repaired by a technician. Or if the laptop is still in warranty, you might need to send it to the manufacturer to have it repaired or replaced. But if the laptop works without the battery, or it will turn on but the battery indicator is not lighting up, you're facing one of these problems. 1. The battery itself is dead. 2. the battery bay is loose 3. the battery itself is loose Hope this helps
Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.
If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.

You need to hit the function key on reboot that takes you to the BIOS settings. In the BIOS settings there will be an option to change the boot order. Make sure the CD is the first device to boot from. If the machine fails to boot from CD after this, then either the CD-ROM in the device is not a bootable CD ... or the drive may have issues.
