If the battery is running down at a normal rate, that's a relief, because at least that much is working. Otherwise, this isn't all there is to it...probably something in the supply overheated and that section will need some refitting in general; there may be a replacement module you should seek from Toshiba as a simplest method.

It seems that some part of the power supply and battery management system has gone amiss; either something is dissipating power which should not, or the circuits in the laptop tend to disfavor AC over battery power, because whatever detects steady power from AC is not triggering ON (perhaps because a power brick is bad?) So it could be circuits in the charger or the laptop itself, or both; hunt down the lines that need to be asserted to run off AC and:
1- Isolate them so you can force the line and it will run off AC, then
2- Replace the faulty circuit that should have been driving that line appropriately

Does the battery recharge in the laptop under any conditions, I wonder?

Besides checking and cleaning the battery and charger terminals. Boot up and go into bios. Look at the status of the battery in bios and there is a calibrate function. Follow directions and calibrate each battery. If the battery is bad (wore out) pitch it. the new battery should be ok durring calibration.

On laptops it is highly recommended that U do not leave the power cord plugged in for very long periods of time. A laptop should be turned off when not in use and run on battery to keep the operating circuits (along with battery live) functional. In this case change is good. Always provide good ventilation. It's called a laptop, but that is the worst place to use it. flat solid surface with lots of airflow.

Ur power supply may already be damaged from adverse use as described above. If the calibration does not correct the problem, repair shop time. Over heating can shorten the life of the processor also.
Good Luck

Removing the hdd in my toshiba 1135-s125


OK, This is a big undertaking if you are completely new.

1st, if you can get a static guard wrist band - great!
2nd You will be dealing with plenty of screws so keep track

In Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked. Here are some examples:
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

I have .a Toshiba Satellite 1135-S155. It should be a similar configuration, same family/1135-S1xx series.

You will have to remove a total of 9 Phillips screws.

Place the underside of the PC up.
Disconnect all power, cables and Battery from Laptop
.
The first screw is located just under the Toshiba Serial Number / Bar codes, just above where the DVD/CD-ROM combo drive is located.
Mine is labeled (F5). Unscrew it and place in a safe place.
Pull DVD/CD-ROM combo drive out it is an assembly.

The Hard Drive is located under the DVD/CD-ROM combo drive.
The Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is enclosed within a caddy containing the remaining eight screws.

There are four screws holding the caddy rails to the Laptop and four screws holding the rails, caddy and Hard Drive as an assembly.
Unscrew and place in a safe place/ container they are small. Disassemble the HDD from caddy assembly; place your HD in the caddy and reassembly.


Here is another Toshiba HDD access that is slightly more
straightforward than my 1135 series
So you get an idea of where a HDD is visually:

Below is the Hard Drive Removal

I hope this gives you an idea of how to go about it for your
particular Laptop
