Question about Toshiba PC Desktops
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.
