Power source loose when you hook the power cord to the back of the pc it wobbles plus not the pc will go to the toshiba screen and click off

It sounds like the DC Power Jack in your laptop is loose and thus your laptop isn't receiving consistent power. Search for Laptop DC Jack repair in your area in a search engine and have them look at it. It generally costs around $100 or so to repair a power jack.

Hi What precisely do you mean by VGA display, is your laptop not displaying anything on lcd screen,or its having problem giving display on an external monitor connected via a vga port.
if there is no display on the laptop LCD screen, then turn the laptop on and observe for beeps sounds and hard disk spinning sound if still no display is available plug the laptop to external monitor and again restart the laptop. if there is no display on the external screen and laptop is displaying well in LCD, Then most probably you need to press some keyboard combination on laptop keyboard eg: Fn + f4 , refer to your laptop manual also.

Laptop is powered up (green power light is on) but the on button does not respond!and is not switching on

Try the "power drain" procedure to fix your laptop:
  1. disconnect the power cord from the laptop
  2. Remove the battery from the laptop
  3. press and hold the power button on the laptop for about 30 seconds
  4. Insert the battery back in to the laptop
  5. connect the power cord to the laptop
  6. Try to start the laptop normally by briefly pressing the power button.
Good luck

Motion Computing C5 Tablet PC won't power on

Hi! I do understand that you are having the problem on the laptop turning on. Try another option, turn off laptop, remove cables and battery, press and hold power button for 10 secs. Reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop. Then turn it on. If the laptop did not turned on, remove the power cable and turned on the laptop. If still didn't, remove the battery and insert the power cable. If still did not work then check if there lights flashed on the laptop when turning it on. If still does not, then you need to contact the pc manufacturer for repair and possible replacement. Otherwise, if there is light on the laptop, then there might be a problem either the battery or the power cable itself. If there is light on the laptop but no power cable, most likely the monitor did not work simply because the battery works due to the fact that there is light on the laptop. On the other hand if there is light when plugging in the power cable on the laptop, then you need to check and insert another battery if it works. Otherwise you need to replace the battery...

My laptop stop charging.

Batteries get old and wear out. Be use AC outlet is working. Check for power light on AC/DC charger box between laptop and AC.

It is common for Laptop charging/power connectors to get worn and/or loose(intermittent). Try to get charging light on PC by wiggling power connection to PC.

If not, if you have a VoltOhmMeter(VOM). check for 5V on barrel power connector on the charger side, that plugs into PC, Outside conductor is GND and Inner connector is (+5V). VOMs are cheap at RadioShack or AutoParts stores and are a handy tool to have around the house. Book shows you how to measure. PC is 120V AC on Wall side of PC Power Supply from Wall Outlet, and 5V DC on PC side of Charger.

Charger may be defective. Cheap on Ebay.
