The display on my toshiba nb505 went to the right of the screen. I can't reach the close x with the arrow anymore. What did I do wrong and hoe can I get the display to go back to normal ? Thanks in...

This is a common problem on net books. You can try playing with the resolution until the picture fits the screen again (that is often a resolution setting issue). To find resolution setting, right click anywhere on the desktop and click on 'properties', or 'personalize', whichever it shows, then 'Display' in bottom right corner. Good luck.

My Toshiba nb505 netbook run with the AC adapter, but will not run on the battery. The battery shows that it is charging but the charging percentage does not increase. Any advice?

I own the Toshiba NB505 netbook and the very same thing was happening to me. Here is what I did to fix my issue:
Step 1: Shut down the computer and remove the battery. Then turn it on but now with the battery out. It should say "battery not detected".
Step 2: Open control panel and open the "device manager". Under "batteries" (the first one), uninstall the one that says "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery". This is the battery driver.
(Don't worry. The computer will automatically re-install it)
Uninstall the driver and shut down the computer.
Then reinsert the battery and power on the computer. The driver should have re-installed itself. Check to see if the battery is now charging.
(It will take awhile for it to fully charge to 100% Best to shut it down and let it charge. The far left indicator light on the front of the Netbook will turn green when it is fully charged)
Hope this helps. Yeah I had to figure this one out on my own. Toshiba support staff over the phone were useless!
Good luck!!
