Okie thank me a lot first cos i have the solution or atleast the reason... hate me cos i am the bearer of possibly bad news... the problem is at chip level... a processor needs to be supplied with uniform voltage and power for uninterrupted operation whil handling huge calculations it is not capable of withstanding sudden changes in voltages... for this purpose what we have on a mobo is a chip called the core voltage controller this chip makes sure that the voltage sent is uniform... this chip on ur system is blown
2 solutions exists take a deep breathe relax one is to replace the mobo-cost approx400$ take a deeper breathe ask for toshiba assistance instore and get this chip replaced cost 100$(i took the second option costed me 4500 rupees in India)

    How do you identify the core voltage controller chip?

Toshiba Satellite L300 shuts down when ac power plugged in


How about this step, try to turn off the laptop itself. Remove the cables and battery just like what you did before, then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Then, reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and then turn on the computer itself. If the laptop restarts, shuts down or freezes with the AC power cables, two things that you should seriously consider. It might be the power cable itself, AC cable port or the circuitry going to the motherboard. And since you have cleaned out the fan and heat sink, you have isolated that problem. Have you plug-in another power cable on your laptop? If yes, then check if it works. Otherwise, the main issue is that the AC port is loose or the circuitry of AC adapter going to the motherboard is not not working. You can re-open the unit and check the circuitry from the AC port going to the motherboard. You may check the circuitry from AC port to the power supply if it is ok. If symptom persist, please contact your local dealer...

My toshiba satellite a205-5804 has a problem with the main board, when its plug in it freezes but when not , when is used whith the battery it works alright. a repair center told me is the main board, but...


Are you using the original charger or a universal replacement? As loose fitting power plug can cause this problem but so can a loose connection at the power jack (repairable) or a cracked trace on the main board from stress at the power jack (not usually repairable - ie needs a new board). JC

Toshiba satellite a205-S5847 cuts off while working


You could have an overheating problem, The CPU shuts down when it overheats and the laptop won't bootup until the CPU has cooled down.
The overheating problems are caused by a faulty fan or the heatsink/fan assembly is clogged with dust which prevents proper cooling.
Check the fan to see it it spins freely, if not (it has a bearing problem) then replace the fan. Also remove and vacuum the dust off the fan and heatsink.
