Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
When I plug my laptop into the wall jack, it works fine. But, as soon as i unplug it my computer goes dead. Is my plug in adapter bad? Or is somthing in my laptop gone bad?
Sounds like a bad battery cause its not keeping a charge. Try a new or known good battery and see if it will charge and then unplug the ac adaptor to see if the laptop stays on.
If the laptop stays on with a different battery charged then your old battery is bad. If your laptop doesn't stay on with a known good or new charged battery without the ac adaptor hooked up then its a bad motherboard.
