SOURCE: My laptop battery won't charge

possible when the old AC adapter blew it took part of the power management circuit with it, This is the circuit that detects and charges the battery, I'm not sure whether this a seperate replaceable daughter card or whether it is part of the main motherboard. you will need to investigate this (or send it for a service)

SOURCE: Toshiba Laptop wont work unless plugged in.

Go to CONTROL PANEL / POWER OPTIONS / POWER METER. Is the battery charged or charging?

If POWER METER says the battery is charged, you have a motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.

Do you have a voltmeter?

Remove the battery and check for voltage at the laptop's battery contacts, while it is plugged in. No voltage = charging circuit defect. A blown internal fuse or other motherboard problem. Take it to a tech.

Voltage OK or no voltmeter - take it to a tech.

A qualified technician should have a schematic and other technical documentation for your model It can be rather difficult (expensive) and hit-or-miss to locate possible fuses without the factory paperwork.

Good luck.

It's either the adapter connection or the MOBO itself.
Anyhow try removing the battery and adapter press and hold the power button for 10 to 20 sec plug the adapter with out the battery and restart. Hope this works if not check the MOBO for jack problem
if battery is already charged try with battery alone. Also be sure adapter is compatible the right voltage IE 19.00, 18.00

First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Try it with all devices disconnected from the laptop. Sometimes defective USB devices will cause this. Then try it with no battery. This will isolate the problem for you. If it still happens with no battery or other devices, then the problem is either in the adapter or the laptop. If you bought the laptop new, then contact Dell tech support for help. If not, try a local shop. They should be able to connect another adapter to check the problem.

There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

yes,if the battery doesn't charge with the ac adapter or turn on with it pluged in.it is common on comuters for the power adapter on the motherboard to go bad after a while.downfall of the laptop is that it is very hard to replace it(desktop easy because it is not built into the motherboard)you can either buy a new motherboard or a new laptop.if you got any more questions feel free to email me at gamecrazy944@yahoo.com

Toshiba laptop wont turn on

Battery doesn't stay charged


The problem is with the battery. All Lithium batteries last for around 1000 charges or so. Since the laptop is 2-years old the battery needs to be replaced.
I Hope this solves your problem. Kindly Accept my solution.
