No Laptops can run with out the battery in. I would say make sure everything is plugged in securely and all that. If you still have problems feel free to ask I will be glad to help.

Hope this helped.

It sounds to me that the battery is not connecting to your computer. Is it possible that the terminals have been damaged? Or some other issue that is disconnecting the battery from the computer?

Laptop Battery Problem

If your laptop computer runs normally on the ac adapter, but the battery won't charge, please try the following troubleshooting steps:

1) Remove the battery from the system.

2) Look at the connectors in the bay and on the battery for signs of physical damage.

3) Check the battery charge by pressing the status button or image on the battery near the LED's. Note: The lights indicate the current amount of charge on the battery. If all the LED's come on when you press on the butto, the battery is fully charged. If fewer lights are lit, then the battery is partially charged. If any lights flashm or blinkm there could be a problem with the battery.

4) Reinsert the battery; puch until it locks into place and the latch snaps back to the locked position.

Toshiba Laptop A200-AH5. My computer seems dead and there is only the blue (I think battery light) light that is on. Nothing else works. I hope my laptop didnt crash? Please help me.

Most likely the problem is related to the board. Also most likely the light you are seeing is the power light. Do you get any blinking lights? Try also an external monitor and see if that works.

Sounds like your Battery is shot. If you charge it for atleast 4hrs and it only works for 30mins then you definately need new battery. Check on EBAY, Amazon and even craigslist to find a used one at cheaper price. Price isnt an issue then go to an electronics store and get a new one. Whichever is best for your pocket..

No operating system found

If the error message says "No operating system found" it is most likely a faulty disk controller or a faulty hard disk.
Reseat the hard disk, if this doesn't work you need to test the hard disk another way. Remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees this as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard disk is OK and the fault is the disk controller on the the 4115c laptop.
If the hard disk is not detected then the hard disk is faulty. You need to install a new hard disk, install Windows and the laptop's device drivers and programs to get a working laptop again.

you could try the battery in another laptop of same age to see if it is the battery itself, or check the laptop and see that the battery is getting any of its power to the motherboard.
