Re: help with toshiba ac problem
Oh.. This problem occurs due to the damaged power jack(The port where you plug in the AC adapter). It is very easy to unsolder and resolder the old one. A replacement jack can be obtained from toshiba. I even found a jack for my friend at a local electronic store but a genuine replacement is always advisable. You will find the power jack under the keypad of your laptop.

A200 series laptops are very good normally but don't boot up if there
is a device in the USB slot or a CD/DVD in the drive. If it still
refuses to POST, remove the AC Adapter, remove the battery and remove
the hard drive. Power the unit up without the hard drive and it
should complete POST and complain that there is no hard drive. If
that doesn't work remove AC adapter, ensure battery is disconnected
and remove hard drive and RAM. Try again. If it still doesn't work,
you have a mother board fault and it needs a service centre.
www.Toshiba.com will help you out. If it does work at one of the
options, when you have closed the laptop down, replace the RAM first
and test, then the Hard Drive.
When working download updated BIOS from Toshiba.com Hope this fixes your problem.
How about this step, try to turn off the laptop itself. Remove the cables and battery just like what you did before, then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Then, reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and then turn on the computer itself. If the laptop restarts, shuts down or freezes with the AC power cables, two things that you should seriously consider. It might be the power cable itself, AC cable port or the circuitry going to the motherboard. And since you have cleaned out the fan and heat sink, you have isolated that problem. Have you plug-in another power cable on your laptop? If yes, then check if it works. Otherwise, the main issue is that the AC port is loose or the circuitry of AC adapter going to the motherboard is not not working. You can re-open the unit and check the circuitry from the AC port going to the motherboard. You may check the circuitry from AC port to the power supply if it is ok. If symptom persist, please contact your local dealer...
you can refresh the driver by going into the device manager and find the cd/dvd drive and uninstall it and then click the button at top that says scan for hardware changes that will refresh its driver. If that didnt do it then you have a upper/lower filter issue which i will help with it if it dont help. hope this helps
I have the same problem with my Toshiba too, prima facie, it looks like Toshiba and Vista don't make a good combo. I suspected this to be a pure hardware problem, but was disproven when I booted in safe mode. It does not have any problems with the AC Power on in Safe mode.
