Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 Notebook
I turned it on before I was completely charged so I could register it, but I know you're suppose to let it charge before you use it- could that be why its not fully charging or is basically dead when its not plugged in and I go to turn it on? the battery light just stays orange.
As long as the charge is not complete the battery LED remains amber.
Give the laptop the time to charge: it should take 3 to 4 hours it it is not being used, and 3 times longer if it is used.
You do not need to register immediately with Toshiba.

Try to shutdown, remove battery, remove AC plug, Press and Hold Power button for 30 seconds, replace battery and AC adapter and test.
do you hear windows booting ( the startup sound) after a few minutes, if so there may be a monitor hardware problem

Start by trying another power outlet.
The power adapter should have its own light. If it doesn't light up then the adaper is bad. Kensington.com sells very inexpensive universal power adapters. You might also find a good deal on eBay.
If the adapter lights up then it may be your battery. Notebook batteries are only good for 2-3 years. If you let them sit for a long time without a charge they may only last 1-2 years.
Vote for this solution if it helps.

It sounds like the power supply inside has gone bad. If its not under warranty it will most likely cost more to fix than its worth.
Try running it without the battery and just off the AC power....if that does the same..I'd say start looking for a new one.

Testimonial: "you solved my problems... thanks dude!"
It's a motherboard hardware issue in all likelihood.
There is NOTHING you can do but update the firmware bios. The problem is that most bios firmware update programs require both ac and battery power at the same time :(
You can try to do it anyways by visiting Toshiba's support page for your model and downloading the firmware from there.
It probably won't fix the problem but it's still worth a shot....sometimes it works ;)

My battery is charging now. As per your say to remove the battery and check to see if the prongs are dusty or if it is blocking the main connector or anything else. So, i removed the battery and checked and it was quite dusty so i removed the lint and dust from it. Now it's starting to charge. Now it's at 19%.....Thanks you're the genius
