Toshiba Laptop not Taking Charge

I purchased a Toshiba laptop about a year and a half ago, and right as my warranty expires, I began getting problems with my AC connection. I purchased a new adapter, thinking that was the problem. Unfortunately it wasn't. At first it wasn't so bad, I just had to have the AC adapter put in a certain way and held up by zip ties, sometimes this didn't work, but for the most part it kept my computer charged.

One night I came home, plugged in my computer and the battery was completely dead and the AC charge was not working.

I know the battery is dead, I know the AC adapter is getting charge. I think it has something to do with my connection between the actual laptop and the AC adapter. I think the problem is inside of my computer.

Any thoughts? Any way to fix this quickly?

Ya the solder connection connecting the ac power input onto the transformer is probably weak. aside from taking the case apart and resoldering the connection, not much else you can do.

Targus Charger Problems


It looks like there is a shorting taking place whenever you insert the power jack into the laptop. Most likely the shorting is taking place on the laptop side and requires replacement, which should be done at the manufacturers service station even if its warranty has expired.

I have toshiba a665-s6086 , notice problem when i play sound file and get move the laptop up or right after that i hear noise in speakers , i payed this laptop new


Sounds like a loose connection from the speaker cable to the motherboard, Or possible bad connection with the speaker terminals. If you purchased this new and it is under warranty, I'd be taking it back for investigation

Hello, My girlfrend has a problem with her toshiba satelite a305d (i think s6848). She uses win 7 over a year with no problems, and a couple of days ago, sound just stopped working! There is no error...


Did you "minimize" or "mute" the internal speakers?

If not, it's time to take the laptop to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting & repair.

> over a year

Most laptops come with only a one-year warranty.
Is the warranty still valid?
Was an "extended" warranty purchased, either from Toshiba or from the computer-store that sold it to her?
Was it purchased on a credit-card that automatically "doubles" the warranty?

How do i reattach the shift key on my sony vaio it seems impossible


Indeed it does. When one of the keys on my laptop popped off I tried for hours to reattach it to no avail. Taking it to a repair clinic I was told that they couldn't reattach a single key either and that a new keyboard would have to be ordered and installed at a cost of almost half the cost of the original laptop purchase price. Fortunately, the laptop was still under warranty so the repair was made in a few days for free.

So, where does this leave you? If your computer is still covered by warranty contact Sony Customer Service. If the warranty is expired, a new USB keyboard can be purchased very inexpensively wherever computers and computer accessories are sold.

How can i know my laptop warranty period


Usually any product you purchase, Like the laptop, will have one year warranty on it from the date you have purchased it.

If you can find out when you had purchased the laptop, add 1 year to it on coming year and it will be the date the warranty expires,

Other way is, click on this link to find out the warranty

Right half of screen is Black with a White vertical stripe


Yeah, I have this exact same problem, except my mom slammed my laptop shut in frustration around half an hour ago, so that's why it's like this. The right half of my screen is black with two colorful stripes (mostly white), but the left half is visible. I've researched a bit and found out that this is because the LCD in your monitor has burnt out, and since you don't have a monitor to attach, the only thing you can do is to go to where you bought the laptop and either get it fixed for free or return it for a brand new one (if your warranty still stands). If not, you might as well get a new laptop. I think my warranty has expired, so I'll get a new laptop, hopefully.

Hope this helps!

Gateway boot problem


This mostly happens when your motherboard is bad or one of the memory modules is bad.

The led light comming on indicates your power pack is ok but a component is failing to start especially when the laptop stops at the first screen stage where the manufacturer names appears.

The steps needed to solve this kind of problem would require technical skills and physical inspection.

If you still have a waranty period then seek a free service repair from an authorized or certified gateway service centre at the nearest centre closest to you.

If your warranty has expired, i still advise taking your Laptop to the closest Gateway service centre.
