Question about Toshiba Satellite M40-S417TD Notebook
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?
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.
