My toshiba laptop will only run when I have it plugged in. I have a couple of these computers so I know the battery is charging but just does not switch over to run from battery.

    As you are very sure that battery is charging then such switching from power supply to battery is avoided by battery module. Actually, this module is between the battery and laptop's power interface. And its not also safe to open you laptop and try to repair it. So i recommend you to go for a technician and ask him to perform this task for you... rate this solution if it is really helpful to you

You said you have 2 laptops. try the battery of that laptop on the known good working unit if it power up without the ac adapter plugged in then its a motherboard problem. basically swap the batteries. then the next option for you is to update your laptop's BIOS, and if that doesn't work, replace the motherboard.

Hi, I've recently obtained a Toshiba Satellite


Have you since re-inserted the battery to see if it charges? A battery that is past its ability to hold a charge may show as fully charged, but will discharge usually instantly if put under load and one that has deteriorated to the point of no longer accepting or retaining a charge can cause problems that you have described. The best way is to obtain another battery and test that in the laptop. If that too fails, the issue is likely to lie in the charging circuit. Some laptops, the Packard Bell easynotes were notorious for this.

It is also good practice to remove the battery once charged and running on mains, as this extends the battery life

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.

My laptop won't turn on even though it's plugged into the recharg


Try removing the battery and running the laptop just on the p/s. If it works like this the battery is dead. Otherwise the laptop has a problem.

If the battery is dead, buy a new battery or run it on p/s alone.

Laptops should be run on battery alone as much as possible, or the battery dies.

Toshiba Laptop not charging


So confusing...Laptop AC Adapter nowadays has AUTOMATIC VOLTAGE, meaning it doesn't matter if it is 110v or 220v. Maybe you've got a FAULTY BATTERY. Remove the battery and plug in your AC Adapter to outlet and to your laptop and try to power-on.

From Toshiba, try step-charging the battery or Battery conditioning procedures:

Batteries don't last forever. All types of batteries gradually lose their ability to hold an electrical charge as they age. Eventually, the computer's battery charge indicator may show that the battery contains less than a full charge, even though the battery has just been fully charged. The computer will then not run for as long a time from the battery as when the battery was brand new.
You may prefer to simply replace the battery if this happens, but you may also wish to try 'step-charging' the existing battery per the following instructions.
This procedure should work for the battery in any Toshiba notebook. Follow it only when you find that the computer will run from the battery for just a short while.
Check the User's Guide for more specific information about charging the battery in your computer .

Procedure

Step-charging the computer's battery

  1. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer, and turn ithe computer on. Let the computer run from battery power until the computer turns off, indicating that the battery is fully discharged. Time this interval, but not with a software clock running on the same computer.

  2. Remove the battery pack from the computer.

  3. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

  4. Wait at least 30 seconds. The first time through this procedure, use a soft cloth to wipe the battery pack's contacts and the AC adapter's plug.

  5. Re-insert the battery pack.

  6. Plug into the AC adapter into the computer again and check the fit of its plug in the wall outlet, making sure the connection is secure.

  7. With the computer turned off, let the battery charge until the battery status light or icon glows green, or otherwise indicates a full charge.

  8. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

  9. Remove the battery.

  10. Wait at least 30 seconds, then re-insert the battery.

  11. Plug the AC adapter back into the computer.

  12. Let the battery charge again until the battery status light turns green or otherwise indicates a full charge, again.
Repeat this procedure, starting from step 1, at least three times. Each time, check to see if the computer runs longer from its battery than the previous time.

Battery Conditioning:
IMPORTANT!!
Interruptions in the charging cycle can be responsible for an issue called "memory effect" which may reduce the battery's charging capacity. Whenever you suspect the battery performance is not at it's optimum you should try using the following "Battery Conditioning" procedure.

Before you start: Turn off your battery saving features temporarily.

***IMPORTANT*** Repeat the following steps 2-3 times!

  1. Unplug the power cord from the computer
  2. Turn the computer on and let it run until it shuts itself off.
    Note: Using the CD-ROM to play an Audio CD will speed the discharge.
  3. Plug in the power cord (While the system is off) charge the battery until the battery light changes from flashing green to solid green
  4. Remove the battery for 30 seconds and then replace it.
    Note: If the battery light isn't lit, wait a few moments, if it still does not light check your power connections.
  5. Continue charging the battery until the battery light turns solid green once again.
    **REPEAT THIS PROCEDURE 3 TIMES**

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
