Question about Toshiba Satellite M35X-S149 Notebook
I am having problems with my power supply, it connection to my Toshiba laptop M35X or the battery. The unit powers up but frequently shuts off on its own. When this occurs the battery is almost discharged. I can plug the power supply in, power up but it will still turn off randomly. I note the green AC lite AND the battert status lite orange/green will often flicker or turn off when the computer is turned off but connected to the power supply. I can wiggle the power connector where it plugs in to the back of the computer and usually get the lights back on. I suspect a loose connection with the female adaptor plug for the power supply, but I wonder if anyone else is familiar with this problem. If this is it I will need to open up the computer to check or resolder this connection. How big a project is this ? I checked the power supply with a voltmeter and it seems ok. Thanks for any help.
I am having a problem with my laptop..I am charging it but it b=never charges so when i start it it shut off and never turned on.But the orange bulb is always on even though I put it on charging for whole night

This problem has happened to me on several occasions. I found that the connector that you plug your power supply into on the motherboard gets loose. Not making a good connection and like you said needs to be re soldered. Before attempting this, stick a small screwdriver in there and see if it's loose. If it is, then EVERYTHING needs to come off to get to it. Not a quick project. I suggest you take pictures along the way just in case. Good luck!
