If it won't power back on after plugging it back in, try this: remove the battery and leave the laptop unplugged. Press the power button for a few seconds then release it. Put the battery back ni and plug the laptop back in. try to power it back up. If that still doesn't work, look for a "reset" hole near the power switch that you can stick a straigtened paper clip into.

Hi there, I have a Toshiba external HDD 250GB that is giving me some problems and need some urgent help! When I plug my external HDD into my laptop everything seems to work fine. The lights come on, the...

It sounds as though your issue is one of in adequate power. Do both the external HDD have their own power source, or are they powered through USB? if they are powered through USB it may be that as soon as the second drive spins up to transfer the files, it overwhelms the limited power of the laptop. You can try it with the laptop plugged in (though this may not provide it with more power than the battery) or by purchasing a usb hub with its own external power source so that it is not drawing power from the laptop, or purchase an external hard drive with its own power source
The other option is simpler and free, and its to copy the files first to your laptops own HDD, then unplug the source external hard drive, and then plug in the drive you want to copy to, then transfer the files from your laptops hard drive. This will of course take twice as long, but will cost you nothing.

Remove all power sources.
Remove hard drive and Ram.
Fit AC adapter and press on. If the laptop complains as there are now no periferals, power down the laptop.
If it still dosn't power up at all, you have a motherboard fault and cannot continue. A Toshiba Computer Repair Cetre will help you out.
If it did work;
Disconnect power source.
Fit RAM and try again. If that still works but now states that there is no OS, power it down and with power source removed fit the hard drive.
Power up again with AC Adapter. Hope fully all now should be well or at least you now know where your fault lies.
I hope that helps.

Change your AC charger.
It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery level drops by about 1% every few hours"
That's the reason why: "battery has completely died"
If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on. "

usually when you have power problems are associated with a dying battery.. have you tried replacing the battery? there's no much you can do besides replacing the battery, getting item serviced (which may cost as much or more than the laptop (if old) or getting a new laptop.
