If it starts but it does not charge, you may have broken one of the following parts:

Battery: you can easily buy a replacement on Ebay.

Battery slot connectors on laptop: this can result in an expensive repair.

Power adapter socket on laptop: another repair that must be done by a technician.

If the laptop is still under guaranty, you can ring the number on the user manual and ask if the guaranty cover the repair.

If the warranty is expired, then you can either buy a warranty extension, or have the laptop repaired at a local shop.

Ausus U50A power tansition problem

If you are saying your laptop shuts down when you remove the power cord then that's a sign that your battery is dead.

Batteries only have a useful life, then after that they have to be replaced. Once the useful life is up, most times the battery will not take a charge.

Some batteries will take a charge and say they are at 100% but as soon as you remove the power cord it doesn't take long before it is drained at 0%.

Hi I have a Toshiba laptop model no.psl2xu-ookoof and it doesn't charge anymore so what do I do

If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the battery is not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let the latop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in and remove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is dead and needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

Maybe you have not powered down your system and it is running on the battery? If it doesn't light up, how do you know it is charging? Have you checked it in control panel to see it charging?

Check the voltage at the pins of the adapter. If present accordingg to the specifications then connect to the laptop and remove the battery from behind. Now check the voltage at the battery terminal of the laptop. if there is low or no voltage to the desired level then there are problems within the main board as this insufficient voltage will not charge the battery makeing it go down below level.

Sounds like the battery might be bad. Try another battery in the laptop and see if it charges. If it does then you know the other battery is bad.
If you try another known working battery and it still wont charge, then try another AC Adapter. If you still cant get the laptop battery to charge then at that point the motherboard is bad because you will have tried another working batter and another working ac adapter.

The laptop doesn't charge and cannot work without the battery. when the battery is inserted, it indicates'plugged in not charging'

Most laptops will work without a battery as the house current is converted to usable voltage for the lap top as well as to charge the battery.

The battery is not charging because the voltage level has fallen below a safe level to recharge. Li-ion batteries have a safety feature built into them. A small chip is wired into the battery to tell the power supplly on the lap top that it is OK to charge the battery. If Li-ion batteries internal charge fall below a certain level, that chip signals the charger not to try to charge the battery as it would demand a higher charge rate and raise the battery temperature and cause a fire, so it in effect says don't do it. If the battery charge falls further, then that chip locks out the battery and shuts down your computer.

One thing you can try, put the battery in your freezer for about an hour, and then put it back in your machine and see if it will come back to life. Do not let the battery freeze, just an hour will do. You may want to try this a couple of times, but your batter is at it's life end.

I can't open or view my data in Western Digital hard drive

You have to be more specific in order to receive help.
You said: "Last week my hard drive was fallen down on the floor.
Was it in a desktop or laptop & how did it fall on the floor? Did it jump out of the computer or did you drop the computer? What do you consider to be a hard drive?
