Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S226 Notebook
Battery charging and AC power switching off. Disconnect and reconnect power supply, sometimes will reconnect power. Battery charging light illuminated on front of machine, but battery is not charging.
With battery power less than 85%, AC power will shut down and machine switches to battery power. Acts as if too much load shuts down power supply.
Installed new battery, Rayovac, same results. Cable and power supply producing proper voltage. Replaced power supply with one from another machine. Same results.
the problem is from the motherboard. One problem with toshiba laptop, is that they overheat too much.
Check if the fan of your laptop is working and make sure you keep your laptop where there is ventilation, so that air can enter into the laptop.
You could also open up the laptop, clean every dust on the motherboard and also the fan and cooler.
That's the area you should concentrate your attention on and not the battery or AC adapter.
