When I first ran into the problem, I changed all the power options to "never"--the computer is supposed to be always on unless I turn it off.
When the computer is in extended yellow blink mode, pressing the power button doesn't work. If it has been on battery, when I plug it in and then press the power button, it sometimes turns green and works. I don't recall but I think this is only occasional.
Does it stop functioning while you are using it or have you walked away?
The computer could be going into a power saver mode.
Go to the Control Panel and try changing the power settings so that it is always on. See if this helps.
What happens if you press the power button and wait a few moments when it it blinking?

I'm not understanding what the problem is. If the battery is dead, and you remove it, how do you expect it to recharge? Why would you remove it? So, you take it out and nothing happens.So? What were you expecting to happen?
Before you do anything more, read the documentation that came with your laptop to learn how to care for your battery. The amber light usually blinks with the battery is running low. When you plug in the A/C adapter, the light usually becomes steady to indicate the battery is charging. At tleast until you remove it.
Boss you need to mention here in what sequence do the lights blink.

Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.
Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.
well to me either there is a issue with the power supply or the power cord. I have had a bunch of laptops where the power cords have to be a certain way or nothing will respond. this could be and since it is thinking that it is running in battery mode then it drains and then causes the laptop to turn off or go into hibernation due to the fact that the setting you set for the battery where probably on the "when plugged in" not the running off the battery mode.
it leads me to think that its the power supply because its the most common issue with this but I think that the best solution would be to either find someone that can test the power supply and find the break in the line or buy a new one to test ushally if you buy one from a store bigger named store outfit and use the power supply to test you can ushally get your money back or goto a local computer shop and get them to match up the power supply or see if they have a adaptor loose that can be used for testing.
These could be possible solutions but like I said I am almost 100% sure that its the power supply and not the laptop because even if the battery is not in the laptop the unit should still power up. on most laptops that is.
So that might be another thing that you would like to check but I highly doubt that it is that. because even a dead battery will allow the power adaptor to run on the laptop even if it dosent charge.
hope this helps and hope it works for you. let me know how you make out and if this made any sort of sence to you haha
it has nothing to do with the ram, it is the issue of the adapter or battery for toshiba laptop, if the output volatge form the adapter is not steady, the light will get yellow and blink,try it on another toshiba laptop. if it is normal, u should test the toshiba laptop battery by the multimeter, connect the electroprobes wiht the anode and cathode, if the pointer does not fixed in a short time ,the battery is the issue. change it for a new one.
