Question about Toshiba Portege S100-S1133 Notebook
Computer and battery were working fine - suddenly there's a power cut and i discover the battery doesn't cut in. When the power comes back i check the power meter which tells me the battery is fully charged. Toshiba power management says the same - battery fully charged, but nothing I can do will persuade the battery to work.
Tried testing the battery with a multimeter but couldn't get any reading.
Is there some fault with the power software/recharging facility I wonder?
Replace the adapter the power cut caused it to blow out......aways happens it is the power serge that cause the fault.

Tips for a great answer:
If your laptop works fine while plugged in but stops working while unplugged it's likely that either your laptop battery is bad or your laptop is not charging the battery properly.
Below are steps that can be taken to help identify the cause of this issue.
Leave power plugged in
Make sure the computer has been charging from the power plug for at least two hours before attempting to unplug it.
Remove and reconnect battery
In some situations the battery can become loose.
Removing it and then put it back into the laptop.
Use a third-party battery utility to determine the total capacity of the battery. For example, BatteryCare is a free software utility capable of doing this.
Replace battery or AC adapter
If your computer is still in warranty we suggest skipping to the next step.
If the above steps have been completed, we suggest replacing the battery in the computer or AC adapter. In most situations it's a bad battery.
hope this helps
