I had the exact same problem and my toshiba laptop NEVER left my desk and i NEVER wrapped my cord around and around...eventually it would just shut off more and more and then one day i was never able to get it to turn back on. my power cord was okay and my battery was just fine. it had something to do with my motherboard and it was cheaper for me to just buy a new laptop then it was to fix it.

If you have said multimeter, you could check the power cord (cord which plugs into the AC 110volt house current) for continuity, assuming this cord unplugs from the power supply. Use the ohm meter function to do this, and cord must be unplugged to do this. One problem which happens with laptop power supplies is the user (you) often wrap the cords around the box over and over again, and the wiring eventually fatigues and breaks, resulting in no power output or perhaps intermittent power if the cord is positioned just right. (especially referring here to the cord from the box to the laptop) A break like this can be repaired- a tech savvy person could disassemble the box part, unsolder the card, cut the bad part out, and resolder/redress it. I've done this on a couple units here at the college where I work, both having the exact problem described here.

Hi, can you use a multimeter? If so then check on the power suply what the voltage output should be for that unit. Then with the power turned on GREAT CAUTION MUST BE TAKEN AT THIS STAGE AS TESTING THE WRONG END COULD CAUSE ELECTROCUTION use the meter to test the laptop end plug only and see what power output you have. If you can not do this then take the power supply to a technician and have it tested. If ok = dead battery, if not replace power unit. Regards mistyman

Toshiba nb505 says battery is charging but its not.


By replaced battery, you bought one? Some aftermarket batteries do not work well with your laptop. I would return the battery as defective. Some aftermarket batteries are inexpensive for a reason. Make sure the Cord/charger and the battery are the EXACT same power specs, DC volt and Milliamps, or you may fry components.

New battery HP g61 is fully charged but not working \


Maybe the AC Adapter Power Cord is not working. If you can't get on the laptop with the power cord then it is bad and the battery might be drained so you have no power source to power up the laptop.
If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the batteryis not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let thelatop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in andremove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is deadand needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

Worth a shot! Take your battery (bottom of device) out of the laptop for about 10 minutes, make sure the power cord is not plugged in, put the battery back, charge laptp back up with power cord, test it out.

It is very rare that a new battery would no give proper backup. Ensure from your operating system (XP, Vista, Win7) etc that the battery is charging properly and it gets 100% charged.

My computer won't turn on or charge.


You need to diagnose the problem.
>First try to take the battery out of the computer and just use the charger to make computer run.
>If it turns on it means that the battery is what's causing the problem.
>But, if computer cannot run using the charger/AC Adapter then it means that we have a problem with the charger.
By doing this diagnostics you know which part to replace.

I can't actually solve this, but I have to wiggle my cord around to get it to "connect". I'm pretty sure my jack is loose, but haven't opened it up yet to check.

Try taking the battery out for 30 secs or so and then replacing it. You'll find a couple of locks on the bottom of the laptop that will release it.
