The easy way is to take the charger to a shop and have it checked. This requires a voltmeter. If it is bad then replace it. If it is good then the connector where the charger plugs in is probably bad. Unless you are mechanically inclined take it to a shop. I charge $30 to $50 for this type of repair.

          Tosiba satellite a10 no power

          probably the power supply unit is blown. Some machines nneed a battery to be working, even a little bit, to make them work.
          Power supply units that fit all machines are cheaper than buying the brand one.

          My Toshiba Satellite A10 S1001 won't boot to cd. what should i do?

          Try tapping F12 when you first power on your computer. Or there should be prompts at the bottom of the screen with you first power on the computer that tell you what keys to press to enter Setup or One Time Boot Options. If you enter the Setup (BIOS) then be careful of what settings you change, as it could cause problems.
