Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs. If you have a multimeter, verify DC voltage at the AC jack plug. If the AC jack, in the laptop, has been pulled, damaged, it's may have a loose connection. You didn' say if ANY LED's, battery charge, work? If the battery is charged and it doesn't start on battery only, then you have other issues. It may need a ride to a Qualified Computer Tech.
If you still have warranty, take it back asp, they will have to repair or replace since this was manufacture defect, if that is not an option! Do a complete recovery on your operational system to factory setting.
It's possible to fix. First go to device manager and you should see something like "USB Root Hub". Double click to open it, go over to power management, and "Uncheck" "Allow this computer to turn off this device to save power". Do this for all that say USB Root Hub. Next go to "Power Options" then "Edit Plan Settings" (accessible through "choose when to put the computer to sleep") and select "Change Advanced Power Settings". Next, make sure you do this in all of your power settings, but scroll down to an icon called USB settings. Expand the selection, then expand the "USB selective suspend setting". Choose, both on battery and plugged in if you want, to Disable the selective suspend. Finish and apply. Also, to confirm, you know that the USB device (IPod) but be plugged into the eSATA port, correct? It doubles as a USB port and is the only one capable of charging.
remove ac supply and battery from the laptop.. and press power button for atleast 30 sec.. it reset the CMOS memory.. this is what toshiba technical support person told me to do when i called to them way back..
It sounds like you have a fault with the power port on the mainboard or
power board (quite a few gateways have a separate power board) , the
battery won't charge if this damaged or loose which would explain the
dead battery. The smell is probably caused by sparking on the loose
power port. I wouldn't try to power it on anymore as you may damage it
further. it is possible that the area around the power port is burntout
therefore rendering the powerboard or mainboard useless but they are
replaceable at a cost. If the laptop is still under warranty then you
will need to take it back to where you brought it.
You will need to take it to an engineer to have it assessed unless you are able to make the repair yourself. Good luck hope this helps.
in your laptop goto device manager. universal serial bus controller. go to appropriate port. Right click- properties - there you will c a power management tab. uncheck Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. click ok.
