Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook
I have been having the EXACT same problem with my Toshiba notebook (Satellite A135-S4527). At first, I thought it was an issue regarding my AC adapter. But after getting it checked out by a certified Toshiba service technician, he diagnosed it as an issue dealing with the component on the motherboard that corresponds to the power supply. For me, the problem was that the computer's cooling fan was not as efficient/powerful as it should have been for the system. This resulted in the eventual overheating of some of the hardware components. From what I hear, Toshiba is notorious for not equipping their laptops with adequate fans. The technician estimated that it would cost at least $300 to resolve the issue. He also told me that an external laptop fan that slides under your notebook could have mitigated the overheating.
Fortunately, I have still been able to use my laptop even though this problem has been affecting my notebook for the better part of four months. What I have been doing is running the laptop solely on battery power, not from power provided by the AC adapter. Don't ask me how this has been working -- I have no idea. And the good thing is that I am still able to charge my battery when the laptop is shut off. When the system is unable to receive power, however, I remove the battery from the computer and I leave the AC adapter unplugged for at least 24 hours. Then after jiggling the adapter around in the computer's power input hole and/or inserting it multiple times until I see a solid blue light for the power signal, I will reinsert my battery for charging.
I cannot guarantee that this will also work for your system, but it's surely worth a try. I hope this helped and best of luck!
