I suspect the system board. The slight ticking noise you hear would be the processor trying to start the hard drive but no being able to. Could be a hard drive failure but I very much doubt it

Make sure that the replacement battery is registering as a proper replacement and not a knock-off. This will sometimes cause them to act funny.
Check the power settings under Control Panel. It's a long shot, but there might be a weird setting in there.

For laptop: Toshiba Satellite A105: My battery won't charge/computer won't turn on when plugged in. No lights show when plugged in. Don't know if it's a problem with the chord or the computer. Don't want...


Start by trying another power outlet.

The power adapter should have its own light. If it doesn't light up then the adaper is bad. Kensington.com sells very inexpensive universal power adapters. You might also find a good deal on eBay.

If the adapter lights up then it may be your battery. Notebook batteries are only good for 2-3 years. If you let them sit for a long time without a charge they may only last 1-2 years.

Toshiba Satellite A105-S4064; can't get battery to charge


If you put strain on the jack (e.g. hang power adaptor from it whilst using or charging) then the socket on the mainboard can get hot due to poor contact and melt.

There is no way to fix this except to completely dismantle the laptop and fit a new socket - most likely a repair centre will charge you for a new mainboard.

Try another adaptor to see if that is the problem (broken wire in cord) - otherwise look closely at the socket in the notebook.

Try taking the battery out for 30 secs or so and then replacing it. You'll find a couple of locks on the bottom of the laptop that will release it.
