I Have a Toshiba satelite laptop. It has a week battery. It can't be swithed on when the battery has been removed so that it should be using AC power. But when I put in the battery and plug the pc to the AC power, it switches on but only for few minutes then I get the messege that the the battery is running out of power. How can I solve that problem?

You have a bad plug on the end of the power supply a loose jack on the computer or a bad power supply you need to test the power supply with a volt meter to see if it is putting out any power if it is you have a bad connector on the pc or an intermittent connection on the power plug end. get a new battery before you blow something up. it is not good for the power supply to run the compputer all the time. it will shorten the life.

Make sure that the replacement battery is registering as a proper replacement and not a knock-off. This will sometimes cause them to act funny.
Check the power settings under Control Panel. It's a long shot, but there might be a weird setting in there.

Is the AC Power adapter the original adapter of the laptop? If it is, try to drain the battery and charge it for 8-12 hours without using or opening the laptop just charge it. After charging, remove the power adapter as you open your laptop. Make this way a habbit of using and charging your laptop to make the charging and battery life last long.

Hi I have toshiba A200 satelite laptop, for the past two weeks my system gets restarted often, like when i unplug charger pin, when i boot my system. Is it mobtherboard problem.


More likely a battery problem. When you plug in or unplug the AC, there has to be a current surge from the battery to fill a couple of capacitors. If the battery is low, that will cause a failure and restart. How old is the battery. They never last more than 3 years.

Toshiba satelite A100 rejects AC... often.


Just to humor me, are you using any peripherals with your laptop when this happens, such as a wireless mouse, USB connections such as digital cameras? Try to take these away when recharging.

There seems to be 2 issues here.
1) Recharing batteries: To prepare the batteries for long-term use (I do not know how long you've had the batteries...try draining the batteries (both of them), and then recharging it to full 2x before using them without the AC Adapter. This should clear the problem.

2) AC Adapter only works every other day: When you swapped the power pack, was it with a new AC adapter, or another used one? Also, have you tried using a different outlet than the one you normally use? Let me know how this turns out.
