Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
I am unable to power up my laptop because power does not seem to be getting through properly
I would check the power adapter.
Test the power plug on the adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher that the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the power adapter.
If the voltage is zero or very low the the adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the power adapter is OK then the fault could be a faulty power socket on the laptop's motherboard. Plug the adapter's power plug into the laptop's power socket and wriggle the power plug, if the power/charge LED flashes then the socket may have a dry solder joint or the socket maybe faulty and needs to be replaced.
This is a common problem with laptops and to fix and/or replace the socket requires the laptop to be completely dismantled. Get a quote from a repair as it is not cheap.
