Your power supply may have blown out

    you need to find a tester and test power out from your power supply. If it is not same as factory specs then find a replacement and test the laptop.

    If the laptop and the power adapter do not show any sign of life, this is first step to troubleshoot the problem.

    When you find a replacement adapter connect it first with battery out.

    In any case do the reset suggested by firs expert removing battery and connecting to adapter only.And test the adapter.

    If the adapter is fine , then your laptop may be in serious troubles, most common cause is motherboard gone.

    I see now you have those two leds on (led on adapter and battery on laptop)
    Then the problem is with the laptop.
    All you can do at user level is removing the Ram modules and plugging them back. If you have two of them, plug only one at time.
    Also remove cd unit and HD, and start it with only 1 RAM module, see if it load bios. If it does mount it back.
    If is not that then probably the motherboard must be tested with a diagnostic board.

    regards

Toshiba Satellite A45-S120 laptop battery does not charge


Sounds like you need a new battery. Try removing the battery and running the machine on mains power. If that works, you know the charger is ok. Its usual for batteries to deteriorate over a few years, so my money would go on a new one.

right off the bat, i would suspect a bad power adapter for the computer. or perhaps a faulty computer. your best bet is to call toshiba and talk to them directly.

WAS RUNNING ON BATTERY, HAD 5 MINUTES LEFT PLUGGED IN ADAPTER, NO ICON SHOWING IT GETTING JUICE. TRIED TO SHUT DOWN, BUT, RAN OUT OF BATTERY BEFORE SHUT DOWN COMPLETE.....NOW NO LIGHTS NO MOVEMENT,...


Ok when this happens it takes a considerable time for the battery to recover, you should plug in the adapter and leave it for at least overnight without using it, hopefully then after that the battery will be charged. This is very common.
