    It is a gereric replacement "Rocketfish" 90W with an output that was greater than the original. I was told it would work to use just AC adapter as well as charge the battery. However, once the battery dies I need to wait until it re-charges.

Sounds like you bought a generic replacement item. The laptop has circuitry to detect which adaptor is connected to it. If it detects that the adaptor is not capable of charging and operating at the same time, it will act accordingly. The adaptor has a power rating in watts. That number must be equal to the original or greater to work properly.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

    Sounds like you have two choices: cope with the adaptor you have, which isn't all that bad. Or buy the OEM adaptor. If it were me though, I would watch eBay for this item, and would eventually buy one for the price I want to pay.

To whom it may concern, My name is heather. I have a Toshiba L505D. That I purchased last March 2010. It is still under warranty and the computer is no longer charging.I even bought a new charger for it...


With the cables disconnected, remove and reinsert the battery. Also, try to power on with the battery removed to see if the battery is faulty.

If still a problem, and since your computer is still under warranty, I would strongly suggest to contact Toshiba for a repair.

Since Toshiba is world-wide, look in your documentation for a tech support or customer support contact for Toshiba.

Hope this helps.

My Toshiba Laptop will not turn on the second light from the left is flashing orange

There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

I would try another power supply, as the one you have may not be providing enough power to both run and charge the laptop.

I have had my computer about 10 months now and it has suddenly won't charge i have tried everthing what shall i do?

Hi SofaSW !

Is this a laptop we are talking about here or a desktop PC ?

If it is a laptop, they you might have a failing battery pack. Batteries will of course fail over time but as yours has occured with only 10 months, I would imagine that you are still covered by a warranty of where you purchased the computer from.

Give them a call and see what they say. Chances are they'll need information like how long does it stay on for. Does it stay on if the main cable is plugged in. Things like that.

If the battery is failing then they should be able to issue you with a replacement, and that replacement should be covered by another warranty, but be sure to ask if they do replace it for you!

Hope this helps!

The PC suppose to still be on warranty, so you can go and returned. When you bougth it, you need to charged it for a period of 12 hours. If the battery charging icons indicates that is charging, maybe the laptop terminals are not working and you need to take it to the store for that.

It's acting like the juice is drained in the battery. Are you sure it's charged? Do you have a spare battery you can swap out?

Some of them come with two. I actually have the same series laptop (a Pavilion dv6258se, 6000 series), and they can be a little flaky.

I also had an issue where my HP power cable (that connects the laptop to the wall outlet) was faulty, and needed to be replaced, because it stopped charging the battery. I ended up purchasing a generic replacement power cable on eBay.
