Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
My laptop wont turn on, i think there might be something wrong with the charger
If your charge indicator light is not lighting, you may be right. The most common failure is the connector socket where the cord attaches to the computer. Inspect for cracks, looseness, etc. Try wiggling and rotating the connector with it plugged in and look for charge light indication. Move slowly as the indicator light is often slow to respond.
If you can get it to flicker when you hold it "just right", you may need to look at getting it repaired. I have sent away several laptops to a shop that specializes in this repair.
An intermediate step would be to find a computer repair location (our firedog at Circuit City used to be equipped before they closed) who has either an assortment of power adapters or a universal power adapter. They can try to power it up that way to determine if it's your charger.
