Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Toshiba Satellite M100 laptop
and lately i ve been having trouble with my power cable. everytime i move the laptop, it stops charging, and i have to move the power cable around in order to get it to start charging again.
But lately, once it stops charging even if it's for a moment until i wiggle it, it gives me a black screen.
I am under the impression that the computer is still working , but i am not really surely because i immidiately remove the battery and restart the computer.
Please help me fix this problem as it is very annoying and time consuming.
It's a common trouble for the power cord from the adapter to break inside the insulation near the plug. This is because of frequent flexing of the cord near the plug. When this happens you'll see the power light on the computer go out, and wiggling the cord sometimes gets it going again. Without the power input, the battery doesn't charge and the laptop won't stay running.
This sounds like what's happening to your computer, and should be fixed by replacing the adapter. Generic replacements are available at reasonable prices from online vendors and at Radio Shack and big computer retailers. It's also possible to repair the adapter by cutting the cord back and soldering on a new plug if you or someone you know has the tools and skills.
Please take a moment to rate this solution if it's what you needed. Thanks for asking here!

Hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend if that is your problem that the power chord is loosening such time the laptop does'nt power. obviously friend the problem is in your power connector or power port. im sure that the wire is already disconnected. so to solve the problem if you know some electronic works try to solder the lead insde that connects your power chord.be careful in doing it be sure to unplug everything and check if it does'nt have as short circuit before you assemble it again. or if you dont want some risk you try to secure new power supply it will gve you new power cable, new pwer slot and great power supply. but of course it wl tke some expense. so try to select what would be the best for you. good luck hope i helped you.
