Very first thing, is send me the picture of your DC jack and adapter. I have repaired A55-S306 more than 10 times, and can replace your DC jack if its bad..

Ok, if your using Vista, what i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage"
and then "device manager", then click on the + sign next to "network
adapters" and right click on the wireless network and "un-install" the
device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless
card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system
tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again

You can download any/all the Windows XP device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from their download page.
Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get the correct drivers.
Use this link :-.
If you have problems slipstreaming you can during the first part of the XP install by pressing the F6 key to install a 3rd party driver for the hard disk. Windows will prompt you to press F6 so be ready.

I started having the same problem and worse mine would shut off without warning either from the battery running down or even just plugged in without a battery.
I thought It might be overheating so I got a can of air and cleaned all of the vents...and downloaded core temp to monitor the cpu temp @ http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/. Same problem shut down and no charging even though it was running cool.
Finally I started changing settings and it seems to be working and charging just fine.
Here's the answer:
1. Set your power scheme to balanced
2. Open Toshiba Assistant from start
3. In Toshiba Assistant open CPU tab and set to low power.
4. When asked "restart now?" say no and shut it down using the start menu.
When you start it back up you will see the change.
Changing either one of these settings brings the problems back. I can't explain it.
I HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!
I just can't afford another laptop right now.
P.S. even at low power my system works fine...It's a little slower @ start-up but otherwise good.
