    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.

It goes dark, shuts off constantly. Battery meter isn't showing charging.


Unplug the battery and plug in the AC power plug into the laptop;

Does the laptop start up and stay on?

If yes,

Then put the battery in WHILE IT IS ON; See if it starts charging.

If it does not; You have a bad battery and need to replace it.

If it does start charging here's what happend;

Some laptop batteries if they are fully depleted on charge will not let you power up the laptop EVEN IF the power cable is plugged in. In some cases the PC won't turn on at all.

The reason for this is because the battery must have a certain % of charge in order for you to start the PC even IF the power cable is plugged in.

By removing the battery we eliminated the battery as being a cause for this issue; Once the PC is up and running in windows.. LET THE BATTERY CHARGE! You'll want at least 10% charge minimum for the PC to start up.

If however the battery replaced still doesn't hold a charge it's going to be the AC Adapter power cable that's causing the issue.

Best advice start off with the power cable replacement first; This is the cheapest to fix; Otherwise the battery can cost in excess of $50-$150 or more. But universal AC power adapters can be cheap $70 or less which varies depending on laptop.

I just bought a new laptop battery for my toshiba satelite A105, but the problem is the changing the battery, when the battery is low then i plug in the AC adapter the laptop keeps using the battery...


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.

Charges but lights flicker when trying to turn on then lights turn off and nothing happens.just bought new charging cord oem.


Not all oem's are created equal, this sounds like a power supply issue. I would be tempted to try another power supply, first remove the main battery and press power, if it comes on the rechargeable battery is bad, replacement only option.

When i plug my charger in to my satalite L655 and turn it on. An orange light flashes.


Hello, stoneyless
The orange flashing you are referring to means that your battery is currently out of power. I would recommend trying a friends laptop charger (same brand and model) to rule out the charger, if you know the borrowed charger is in working condition and your pc still doesn't power on then you may blame the battery. From that point i would send it in Toshiba for a replacement battery AND charger (if still under warrenty). if warrenty is no longer viable you would have no choice but to find a suitable replacement for either the charger or battery. OR you can buy the same Laptop and take out the battery and laptop cable and return the laptop with the faulty equipment.

Toshiba Satellite M300 won't detect power when running, will only detect it and charge battery when turned off.


If there is no problem with the battery(does it hold a full charge?) or power cabling (unnatural bunching inside the plastic sheath, frayed wires etc), then the power adapter is not providing enough current to run and charge your laptop battery at the same time. This would suggest a hardware issue with your power adapter, consider replacing it.

Toshiba Satellite P30 (new) Battery (and old) not charging


Your charging circuitry, inside the PC may be faulty. OR maybe the Power Adapter, you need to try another adapter, if the problem does not go away, then you have an internal motherboard power supply problem it will have to be serviced. Or just maybe the second battery is faulty too, unlikely.
