For this kind of issue, you may try the following troubleshooting steps:
Take your laptop battery out, plug in the charger and see if the laptop works.
If it works, the battery may be the problem.
Check the AC Adapter
Check to make sure the adapter is plugged securely into the wall outlet, connected firmly to the adapter box and to the back of your laptop.
Most AC adapters have a little light in them on that rectangular box in the middle of the cord that lights up when it's getting electricity.
If that light isn't on, try a different outlet.
Check your fuse or circuit breaker box and plug a different device into that outlet to make sure there is power to it.
If it still does not light up, your adapter could need replacing.
Also check the adapter box for signs of warmth, as it will generate heat when it's plugged in. No heat means no power.Remove the Battery Sometimes it's as simple as a seated battery.
Remove the battery entirely and clean out any dust, lint or hair that may be clogging the connectors and preventing a proper connection.
Reseat the battery securely and make sure the little locking pins that hold your battery in place are securely fastened and there is no movement.
hope this helps

SOURCE: Battery failure
Yes perhaps you can be sure if you BIOS up to date. latest version of BIOS is v1.20. This version has several important fixes including critical battery wake up. You can obtain the BIOS from Toshiba support website. I am adding the direct link for your convenience.
BIOS update is a critical process that you should close other applications and make sure computer is on AC power. the update process takes few minutes.
If the Issue persists after BIOS update you can think about replacing the battery, Just to remind you that usually brand new laptops warranty covers the battery for a year. So you have said that its only 11 months, you can think about using warranty.

Unforutnately there is no way of telling if it is the battery or the charging board in the laptop. However, 98% of the time, it is the battery because the battery life in a laptop is very short.

you may have the wrong type of charge, your port where your charge cord go in may be loose or not connected correctly anymore.
You also may want to check into buying a new battery for that laptop. Depending on how old it is it may of died after alot of use.
I'd test it using those two ideas first. If that doesnt work contact the maker of the laptop.
