Question about Toshiba Satellite 2410-S203 Notebook
Hey, I have a Vista Laptop, pretty new.
In laptops, normally you are able to charge it to 100% then disconnect the power cable and bring it off somewhere else.
However, I am unable to do this anymore.
once I disconnect the power cable, the laptop just shuts down.
No 'Shutting down, saving updates' screen
just 'poof, shut down'.
Any help will be appreciated :]
Model please ???

It sounds as if the power pin (where the AC cord connects to the computer) has been damaged. The part to fix it usually runs under $10 but the labor is gonna set you back $100-200.
Because the connector pin is so fragile, the damage to the pin is caused by the day to day tugging and pulling on the power cord.
What you needed when you got the computer is a cable stay or cable retention device like the Jerkstopper. It takes up the strain when you yank or **** the power cord and minimizes the damage to the power pin. It's a very common problem with laptops.
Here's a short video that talks about the problem. . . .
