It's also quite common for the poorly designed power pin/socket to fail. the day in and day out tugging and pulling on the cable does the damage.

Here's a video that talks about the problem and a cure. . .

Re: toshiba tablets powering off

The batteries in modern day laptops are generally State-of-the-art or close to it.. they last much longer than a while back. now that said they seldom deliver much more than a few hours, with a couple being considered good... Also you are right, anything connected to the PC, like the tablet, will indeed draw more power from the battery and quicken the life of it. for a few tips try these... It is beneficial to put the laptop on charge whenever it is not being transported. Also make sure your Battery Charging/Handling software is set correctly for optimal charging etc. Ensure your laptop uses the screen saver & power down the hard drive when not being used. The MOST important thing is actually when charging the battery the FIRST time, ensure you leave it on for at least the time stated in your manual.. this is VERY important to start with a, Correctly, Fully Charged battery .

Lan and touch screen

Hey Soni,

What I may suggest is heading over to toshiba's website and checking out their drivers/download section for some help. You may just simply need video drivers for the tablet usage, and as for the LAN, you could get those drivers as well.

The direct link

choose portable, and then the model of your laptop. Then go from there to choose the correct driver for your system!

Hope it helps.
