The input for the power adapter is lose on the inside, to where the computer will no longer turn on. So I am trying to remove the back in order to hopefully fix the problem. I have taken all the screws out that I can find, but there seems to be one hiddden and its not allowing me to open it,(it is opening but not enough) but I have no clue where to look, any ideas would be appreciated. thanks.

Measure the voltage at the terminals of the battery in the laptop. If there is no supply then the power section in the lap tops main board is faulty and needs a check.
However if there is voltage then the battery must be checked if this has failed to charge and is defective. check if the cord from the adapter is not short as it will result in DC power cut off.
Hi. I suggest you try pressing the power button to wake it up or you could also try power draining it and turting it on. To powerdrain your computer you must remove first the battery and unplug the ac adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, after that you must place back the battery and plugin the ac adapter then turn on your computer. Hope This Helps
press the fn key on laptop hold it down and then press the power key on the laptop. once u see any display on the screen you will get some tests running on the screen. The system will show you the error message which u need to note down. else you can do a Flea Power on your laptop. Remove the adapter and the battery and then press the power button and hold it down for 30 seconds then connect the battery and adapter back and try to turn on the laptop. See if the magic works for you
This problem is either due to your power adapter, wall plug or the back of your lap top where the power adapter goes into. My guess would be the power adapter, they are infamous for going bad. Try wiggling the cord that connects to the power brick (black box) from your lap top.
simply you may try:
1) take out the battery and set back, plug-in AC adapter to see the charging lights is on or off.
2) if the lights off to check the adapter is works normal or not (output normal voltage same the lable mark)
3) if the lights on try power on laptop, still wont turn on
4) take out the wireless card at the back small cover (mini PCI), and power on again, still wont turn on
5) check the DC Jacker connection (most common sense is disconnection) or the hardware inside trouble
In order to up date your drivers, go to the avertech web site and go to driver downloads you will need to put in the model # of your computer in order to get the proper driver downloads. hope this was helpful.
the best thing to do is to get the help of a qualified technician(better go to a toshiba service centre) they will help you with this. try removing the battery after turning off the computer and removing the power supply.reinsert the battery and turn on th notebook. it should work fine. else contact the technician.
You can use an adapter with a lower or the same voltage, but not higher voltage. Also it should have similar amperes. Also it needs the same polarity. That's the +/- indicator. This page has a positive polarity symbol:
There's no need to pay ridiculous amounts of money for an exact brand name adapter.
