    I am experiencing the same problem. The power just dies 3-4 times a day and is increasing in frequency.

    My Toshiba A205 has done the same thing. I heard the power supply making a noise earlier so I have been using the battery only and the screen has not acted up while not plugged in.

    When power supply is plugged in it may run for a minute or a few hours, but it has been shutting down or the LCD displays thick black vertical lines and fine horizontal lines before.

    Computer tech said it is most likely the motherboard. Computer is two years old.

Check your power settings. You might have it set to shut off after a certain time of non-use.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A205-S4577 and it just won't power on at all. I was told that it might be the board how do I purchase a motherboard?

Dear Friend,
Try this first!. Removed the battery and plug the power, press the power button. If nothing happens, unplug the power supply and press the power button for about 30 seconds (assuming that you have removed all power source, battery and power supply).
If none of this worked, try another battery. Most of the time some brands required presence of battery in order to operate. If not, may sure that your power supply is providing you with adequate power (grab a multimeter and test it, if you know how to)
Good Luck!!!

Toshiba Laptop A205-S4577 won't start up

If the battery is removed, it should still start up with the charger connected. A lot of laptops develope problems with the jack where the power supply plugs in, from constantly plugging & unplugging the charger. The jack in the back of the computer is probably bad.
