    have you checked the power cord for proper voltage? and also check the dc jack in the laptop to make sure it isnt broken or loose?

You should NEVER see sparks when connecting the AC adapter.

If you are seeing that there is damage in either the adapter, the AC plug or both although I would suspect internal damage in the plug.

Unless your handy with a sauldering iron I think this would be a good point to take it to a pro, they can test the AC adapter with a voltmeter and confirm or deny my suspicion. If I'm wrong the voltmeter will show wrong voltage for the unit, if I'm right it will be in tolerance and you'll know the AC plug is the most likely culprit.

Depending on the model and the repair shop these typically cost about $100-$200 to repair.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop that will not power up.


Get sure the memories are good. then try reseting the BIOS by removing the BIOS batery, let it out for 5 minutes and place it again. Though you have to disassembly almost the whole laptop. If dont, chek the other "pheripheral" devices, HDD, DVD, and another (If)

Take the battery out, remove the power cord and hold down the power button for 30 secs. This will reset your hardware settings and might just fix your problem. Plug it all in and give it a try.
