Power BOX supply cord problem or hardrive problem?

My Laptop is a Toshiba Satellite M55 series, when i plug my laptop to an outlet or any plugs; My Laptop won't switch to plug mode, it uses the battery and i'll plug it on and off for 5-10 times until it switches to power plug mode. When the laptop didn't switch to power plug mode i've notice a small and faint beeping sound on my power supply box cord?

Thanks

Check these settings first. In a clear spot on the screen where no icons are, right click and go to properties, box opens and at top should list from R to L, themes-desktop-screensaver-appearance-advanced. click on screensaver, close to bottom click on power, another box should open, click on power schemes, make sure it's set to portable/laptop, and at bottom make sure settings for plugged in are are set to never. If it's not that then you have a bad power supply cord, or a bad power supply unit in laptop. If it's new and under warranty take it in and have replaced if not warrantied then will cost you about 100-150, just a guess!! hope this helps. But it sounds like the supply cord making the beeping noise might be bad. Make sure it's plugged all the way in as well.

My toshiba is charging but onlythe cord out lets bliking what does that mean


Plug the adapter into the wall outlet or power strip. If using a power strip, make sure the strip is on. Most laptop power adapters have a small LED light; the light will illuminate when power is being transferred from the outlet to the adapter. If the light illuminates, chances are you have sufficient power to supply your laptop. Wiggle the power cord if the LED light did not initially illuminate. If the light turns on and off when you wiggle it, you might have a loose cord in the adapter, or the outlet could be faulty. Plug the adapter into another power outlet, preferably a different circuit in another room, if the LED light did not illuminate the first time. If it lights up from the second outlet, the first outlet either does not work or other devices were using too much power on the initial circuit. Connect the other end of the adapter to the laptop and turn the laptop on. When the computer starts up, you should see an indication of how the laptop is being powered in the lower right-hand corner. If you see a battery icon, then the laptop is being powered by the battery, not the adapter. Make sure both ends of the adapter are securely connected. If they are, and if the LED light on the adapter is lit, then you likely have a faulty wire that is not properly connecting to your computer. If you see a plug or adapter icon, then the laptop is successfully being powered by the adapter. If the LED light on the adapter is not lit, then the bulb is out, but the adapter is still working.

Toshiba satellite m55-s139 problem no screen no beep


Hello.

The most common power reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Toshiba satellite M55 not turning on


Either the battery is faulty, or the charger is faulty.
Check the fuse in the mains plug, or even the power point you are using could have a bad connection.
Test using a lamp that you know works or a radio or something and try the charger in another outlet to find the fault.

Toshiba laptop power cable won't charge battery


I had the same problem with my HP laptop some years ago. you have a broken cable/cord and it is the part that is permanently attached with your power pack. If you look at the cord that plugs into your laptop, you can be able to see the faulty part of it. it is usually very flexible or swollen. You can either take it to an electrical technician to change that part of the cord. Your power pack is still ok, but have the technician to check it out first before you change the cord. Else, you may have to get another power pack. below is the full specification of the power pack that is recommended for your laptop.

Toshiba satellite m55-s135 won't power on even when plugged in


When the AC adapter is plugged to the wall, if it has an LED make sure it is on, remove the battery and connect the adapter to the laptop, does it power up?
Install the battery after charging, see if your laptop powers up.
If the laptop does not power up, the motherboard needs replacing.
I hope this helps to resolve your issue.
Good Luck.

Toshiba Satellite M55-S325


Do you see any of the power indicators on the laptop? Do you hear the hard drive churning at all? If none of the above, is your power supply okay? Your batteries charged?

Give us some more information and perhaps we can help further.
