You must change the ac adapter. try to check first your ac adapter then make sure not broken. after you check the ac adapter then you find damage, then you have to replaced with the new one.

    they have specialize tools to check the ac adapter condition. in my country they check it for free. i don't know in your place. it looks OK in outside, but you never now the inside until you check. check it first to make sure. Many case of your problem is caused by the broken ac adapter.

Us mail was mailed on Tuesday the 6 the from salt lake ut how long will it take to get to federal dam mn

First Class letters average 3 to 5 days. Standard packages about 5 or 6 days. Large or heavy items have to be sorted by hand and can take 7 to 10 days. How fast an item should arrive depends on how it was sent did you use express mail, priority, first class or standard. If the item hasn't arrived yet check with your local Post Office and see if it can be traced; a tracking number will help if you have one.

Am not getting any power to my toshiba laptop and just bought new power chord so I know it's not that.

Based on what you have told me it may be the power port on the out side of the laptop and were it connects to the motherboard the best thing you can do is contact toshiba or locate a laptop service center.

No power going into the laptop


A fault I frequently come across is the power socket either breaking up, breaking out of the motherboard or more often now just an array of dry joints causing all sorts of odd problems. Build quality of laptops is rubbish these days - they have to cut costs to save money because of the lower overall price of laptops
