I had a bad power cord that I had to play with in order for it to charge. Finally I guess it finally shorted out. So I brought a new cord and when I pluged it up all I got was the battery light blinking blue real fast. Not sure if I have wrong power cord or if something burned out.

Re: Toshiba wont charge
Sound like you may have the wrong power cord for your unit. The original power adaptor for the A105 is 75W (15V x5A) Auto sensing 100-240V/50-60MHz frequency input. If you got a replacement adaptor, I would reccomend a 75W or higher adaptor. (A new opposed to a used one.) Good Luck.

try changing the battery. Sometimes the battery can be bad, not keeping a charge long enough to allow the computer to power on.
Try a new power cord. First thing is, there can be a short that intermittently causes the computer to show as charging, but it stops actually charging after letting go of the plug. Second, the cord is going bad and not allowing a full charge to go through.
Hello,You must not have anythinghooked up to the computer not a printer telephone cord for modem nothing.
You must remove the battery and the poweradapter.
You hold the power button down for two minutesto purge out the residual memory and power.
Then you plug only the power adaper in and tryto boot up.Sometimes you have to hold the power button down a little longer toget it to boot.
If it does not boot then try unplugging the cordand hold it down another two minutes.
Try again with just the battery.
If neither work you may have a bad battery aswell as power cord or possibly just a bad power cord that is not charging thebattery.Pleaselet me know if you have any further questions or concerns.Alsoplease rate it if you like the answer it helps alot.Thanks.
The problem could be with the port the cord connects too. It could also be with the battery. If you take the battery out, and you still can't run on AC power, you need to replace the port. Take it to a computer/hardware shop and have it done.
A friend of mine had a bad battery. I advised her to buy a new battery, which worked fine for several months. Then she called and said her laptop would not work on battery or even plugged in. I had her buy a new charger. A week later, she called and it was not working again. We tried several things (she is some distance away) and finally I had her go get the cord from her old charger (luckily the trash had not been picked up yet) and it worked fine. So even new things can go bad - it sounds like the battery charger or the cord might be at fault.
Make sure the battery has a full charge, and that it's plugged into a wall socket, then try the power button. You will get the same symptoms as a bad power switch if your battery power is very low. Other than that, the battery could be bad, or going bad. If the problem is a faulty power switch, you will have to have it replaced.
Try running it without the battery and see if it does the same. Sometimes a bad power supply will cause a short to develop in the battery. If it stops shutting down without the battery the you'll need a new battery.
