Toshiba A 135 battery problem

I just bought a laptop from EBay and the battery indictaor message says it has 6 % life left and the battery isn't charging. Does this mean the battery is bad or the laptop not charging? I would hate to buy a new battery and find out its the laptop.

    For now I have to wait for a new CD from Toshiba. Apparently when I tried to register Windows Vista the program in the laptop did not match the Product Code stamp on the bottom of the laptop. Toshiba is going to send me a CD to reinstall to match the code. When I get the CD installed shoild I connect and download the power mangagement from Toshiba? Or do you think the new CD will solve my problem?

    If you can get on the net. Run the updates, this may help.

    I did have a client with the same issue and I re-installed the power management applcation. In fact you can take it off.

    put it this way, it cant get any worse and once the disc arrives your going to re-isntall it all anyway.

Hi, my toshiba pc laptop is only 3 months since i bought it. Sadly the battery life is less than 2 hrs. Has a memory of 6 GB, and HDD capacity of 286 GB . What can be done to my battery? A laptop of the...

One of the biggest power drains on the battery is a bright display. Turn down the brightness of your screen to about 50-60% (which is quite reasonable) and see how your battery life improves, also if you constantly have USB devices that are powering up from your computer, they will also drain the battery quickly. Wireless / Bluetooth adapters if not being used, should also be switched off. See how these tips work for you and then post me if you need more help.
Have a good one!

What is the slide switch on side of a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600

The slide on/off switch is for your internal wireless card. It must be on if you intend to connect to a wireless network, otherwise you can leave it off to save battery power.

To tell the approximate battery life left on the unit, click on the battery icon next to the clock when you are running on batteries. It will tell you what percentage and the approximate time left of the battery.

Thanks and please take a moment to give this solution a rating of fixya.

Acer 5570Z......... Battery Reported as UNKNOWN!!!

To break in a battery for Acer, you have to charge it up, then let it run down completely 3 times! The battery only has a 300 recharge life, so you must never leave it in your Acer when you are plugged in. Use it only when you need a battery, then take it out. Be sure to use it set for battery use, with minimum drain. only recharge it after it is exhausted. It sounds to me as if you bought a bum battery.. Call them, and ask for a replacement.
