Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a toshiba satellite P105-S6167. Today's the first day that it stopped charging. For the past 3 days, I had to play around with the ac power chord to make the connector fit a certain way in order for it to charge. And within these 3 days, the ac power chord would only power my laptop. It wouldn't charge my battery. I had this computer for 1 year now and have been using it quite alot. I'm on it for about 12 hours a day straight 5 days a week since July 2007. I did purchase a notebook cooler in Dec 2007. I would like to know what my options are. Thank you.

    I believe your problem is the connector and not the battery. If the battery were bad moving the cord would have no effect. Go to the control panel and open the power options.Monitor the battery and see if when you move the cord whether or not it cahnges from battery tp power cord.If so you need a NEW CONNECTOR.

About 3 times a day the external battery pack for the computer beeps really fast. Then stops.


Most "desktop" computers do NOT have an exernal battery pack. If your does, that's OK.

The "beeps" probably occur when the AC power from the wall-outlet is interrupted (or is cut-off). The charge in the battery continues to supply power to your computer -- so, your computer does NOT crash.

If you have a volt meter measure the power coming out of the power supply and make sure the outlet is good that you are plugging it into.

Try resoldering the connection on the circuit board where the power supply plugs into it. There may be a loose connection or a crack in the board that you could jumper around using a short piece of wire soldered around the break.
