Your computer has a damaged motherboard. Buy new laptop.

    I have this kind of problem also for my toshiba laptop. I went to the service center and they told me that the problem is in the motherboard and they will fix it by buying a brandnew motherboard on an order basis. The price of motherboard according to them is 10-20% less from the original price. They advised me to buy new laptop than invest in new motherboard for practical reasons. Or i may continue using the unstable laptop by using it in battery mode, but of course, it takes a lot of patience, for I noticed that for a prolong use this way, I observed that my laptop always shuts down everytime the battery is in full charge mode but when the battery drains for a couple of minutes, it stabilizes. It takes a lot of patience operating this partly damaged unit.

Check the cables for your adapter, if they are frayed or damaged then replace the adaptor. If the connectors are dirty clean them with a piece of dry cotton or clean cloth. Make sure they are firmly connected. If a new adaptor still won't boot the computer then visit your dealer as the motherboard connection may be the problem.

The battery has an automatic cut off when charging if the battery becomes too hot or cold. (Whether the computer is on or off). Take the battery out and check the connectors are clean. Also check that the system temperatures are not getting too hot. Speed Fan (http://majorgeeks.com/SpeedFan_d337.html) can help you monitor those. You may need to clean the system fans. Check again if you can charge the battery while the computer is running.

Toshiba satellite A200-27Z power cord led flasing failure to post will try any suggestions


Have you tried another Cord with the EXACT same power specs? Remove the battery. Has the cord/charger/transformer been damaged? Has the AC jack been damaged? Due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? At the AC jack "wiggle" the plug a bit to see if the plug and AC jack are making a good connection or Loose. Sounds like a loose AC connection.

The Toshiba 305's were first released in 2008/2009. Depending on the age of your machine, the battery may very well just be dead. Typically there are warning signs like slower charging, and less battery life after a charge. New batteries for this laptop are available in many places and cost in the $20 to $30 dollar range.

Is the AC Power adapter the original adapter of the laptop? If it is, try to drain the battery and charge it for 8-12 hours without using or opening the laptop just charge it. After charging, remove the power adapter as you open your laptop. Make this way a habbit of using and charging your laptop to make the charging and battery life last long.

It sounds like the connector from the A/C adapter to the motherboard is loose or the inside of the adapter plug that attaches to the motherboard is defective.
