There are a few possibilities.

If it's been plugged in continuously, the adapter may have simply overheated. Allowing it a few minutes to cool down without being plugged in could possibly fix it. Try unplugging the power cable from both the wall and the laptop for 30 minutes and give it another shot. This might work.

The other, less happy, possibility is that your adapter overheated to a critical point or was struck by an electrical surge and is damaged beyond repair. You can order a new one from a site like eBay or directly from Toshiba. Looks like you could get one from eBay for around 25$US incl. shipping but be careful and make sure you order the right thing.

My Toshiba Laptop will not turn on the second light from the left is flashing orange


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.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Screen doesn't come on when I turn computer on


does your pc appear to boot up, do you hear a single bleep to confirm it has passed its BIOS checks.
Is your VDU in standby mode - ie is the power light either orange or flashing - if it is off then check the power cables and connections to the VDU - if the power light is light, check the vga cable to ensure it is plugged it at both ends and none of the pins are bent or damaged (don't be fooled some vga connectors do not have all of the available 15 pins in them) - if you have another PC or laptop you can plug the screen into it then try that to ensure it works - if it does then i suspect that your video card is faulty. check your manufacturers motherboard specification to see which card it can take and replace it

I have a laptop and there seems to be a light currently flashing orange along the front. Ive searched everywhere to find out whats happened but the laptop won't switch on at all. Its a toshiba Prestege...


The flashing light on the front of your laptop is a low battery warning. There probably isn't enough power in the battery to turn on the laptop. You need to plug in the ac power adaptor and let the battery charge until the battery light turns from 'orange', to 'green'.
