That's what I meant...ok..then methinks you are working with a truly unhappy motherboard where the dc charger circuit resides..

Toshiba Satellite won't start up when AC plugged in

Try another Cord/Charger to verify the Cord, AC jack. If you plug in the AC cord after starting on battery, does the battery charge? Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust Advanced power setting to your preference.

Will only charge for about 5 seconds

Try another battery if possible in the laptop. If it charges up the battery the whole way then that means your original battery is bad. If you still can't charge another battery for more then 5 seconds then that means the adapter is bad. If you get another adapter and still can't charge, then the motherboard is starting to go bad at that point.

It wont charge my netbook


Is your ac adapter or charger detected?

If YES, and it doesn't charge the battery, but it turns ON the laptop it means that the battery is the one not holding a charge.

If NO. Try to change the power cord that goes to the wall (that part is detachable) with good known power cord. If it does the same then definitely there's a problem with the ac adapter.

If the computer powers ON, both ac adapter and battery are detected but no display, then the problem is the system board.

Hope it works.

No power. Adapter light flashes when connected to laptop

thanks for using fixya!!

Please do and observe the following:

1. Uninstall the battery pack.
2. Then, connect the AC adapter, we will try to use the power coming from the AC, then turn on your laptop.
3. Observe what will happen.
4. If still doesn't work, install again the battery, then connect the AC adapter, check if its going to work.
5. If not, perhaps you have a problem neither with the battery or the AC adapter.

I suggest that you bring your laptop to a service center. Good luck!

pls rate me positively! thanks!

Toshiba laptop battery or AC/DC adapter

step 1.First remove the battery out
step 2.Try to plug in the AC/DC adapter and see any Power light or something on your machine. If you have power light on your machine that mean your adaptor is supplying electric.But still there're some adapter that don't really supply a good DC voltage
we need to further check.
step 3: incase no light nothing on your machine you need to use analog meter or digital meter to check that your adapter is giving out DC Volatage around 16-19V
Best of luck, takecare.
