Remove the battery and see if the power light still flashes or stays on steady. Your battery could be dead and may need to be replaced. How many charge cycles has it been through, and/or how old is it?

Power not coming on. get no lights when plugged in.


Take the battery out of the machine. Leave it connected to the AC power and try again to start it. If it happens your battery is a Li-ion and a safety feature is built into the battery pack to prevent your charger from over charging a depleted battery and causing a fire.

Can you tell if your AC power cord is working? (Is there a light on the computer that comes on when it's charging?) If the power pack went dead, your battery could've died and now you get no power to the PC which is why it won't boot up.

To test, take out the battery and plug the AC cord in and try to boot up. If nothing at all happens without the battery, then your power cord or power pack is dead, and you just need to replace it.

Your battery pack is not charging. By removing the battery pack and trying to run on AC only you have proved the AC adapter is either not working or the power is not getting through to the laptop.
The best way to sort this is to try another adapter and see if the laptop works, if it does then your adapter is broken (this is possible even though it reads 19.1 under no load.)
If the laptop still does not work with another adapter then the laptop itself will heed repair.

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. "

From Toshiba, try step-charging the battery or Battery conditioning procedures:

Batteries don't last forever. All types of batteries gradually lose their ability to hold an electrical charge as they age. Eventually, the computer's battery charge indicator may show that the battery contains less than a full charge, even though the battery has just been fully charged. The computer will then not run for as long a time from the battery as when the battery was brand new.
You may prefer to simply replace the battery if this happens, but you may also wish to try 'step-charging' the existing battery per the following instructions.
This procedure should work for the battery in any Toshiba notebook. Follow it only when you find that the computer will run from the battery for just a short while.
Check the User's Guide for more specific information about charging the battery in your computer .

Procedure

Step-charging the computer's battery

  1. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer, and turn ithe computer on. Let the computer run from battery power until the computer turns off, indicating that the battery is fully discharged. Time this interval, but not with a software clock running on the same computer.

  2. Remove the battery pack from the computer.

  3. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

  4. Wait at least 30 seconds. The first time through this procedure, use a soft cloth to wipe the battery pack's contacts and the AC adapter's plug.

  5. Re-insert the battery pack.

  6. Plug into the AC adapter into the computer again and check the fit of its plug in the wall outlet, making sure the connection is secure.

  7. With the computer turned off, let the battery charge until the battery status light or icon glows green, or otherwise indicates a full charge.

  8. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

  9. Remove the battery.

  10. Wait at least 30 seconds, then re-insert the battery.

  11. Plug the AC adapter back into the computer.

  12. Let the battery charge again until the battery status light turns green or otherwise indicates a full charge, again.
Repeat this procedure, starting from step 1, at least three times. Each time, check to see if the computer runs longer from its battery than the previous time.

Battery Conditioning:
IMPORTANT!!
Interruptions in the charging cycle can be responsible for an issue called "memory effect" which may reduce the battery's charging capacity. Whenever you suspect the battery performance is not at it's optimum you should try using the following "Battery Conditioning" procedure.

Before you start: Turn off your battery saving features temporarily.

***IMPORTANT*** Repeat the following steps 2-3 times!

  1. Unplug the power cord from the computer
  2. Turn the computer on and let it run until it shuts itself off.
    Note: Using the CD-ROM to play an Audio CD will speed the discharge.
  3. Plug in the power cord (While the system is off) charge the battery until the battery light changes from flashing green to solid green
  4. Remove the battery for 30 seconds and then replace it.
    Note: If the battery light isn't lit, wait a few moments, if it still does not light check your power connections.
  5. Continue charging the battery until the battery light turns solid green once again.
    **REPEAT THIS PROCEDURE 3 TIMES**

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

The computer does not seem to be charging up


Hi,
I am a Dell Certified System Engineer(DCSE)

try taking out tthe battery and then try powering the system only on ac adapter connected
if it doesn't power on only on the ac adapter make sure that the port on the system where you plug in the ac adapter for any kind of bent or broken pins
if the port is ok then get your ac adapter replaced.
