This is a problem with the power adapter that you may need to replace it already since that is causing the laptop not to work properly.

Hope that helps..........

Plug in not charging


You may have to take the laptop apart. My Acer was not charging because my son would have the a/c power adaptor rub against his leg (where it entered the laptop)...But !!! first do you have a voltage meter, check the power supply 1st probably a bad a/c adaptor. If not go to YouTube and see if there is a video that shows how to dismantle your laptop. Be happy it is not your cooling fan..they build the entire laptop around the cooling fans. A trip to the dentist is more fun than replacing a laptop cooling fan.

Toshiba replacement power cable


Sounds like you bought a generic replacement item. The laptop has circuitry to detect which adaptor is connected to it. If it detects that the adaptor is not capable of charging and operating at the same time, it will act accordingly. The adaptor has a power rating in watts. That number must be equal to the original or greater to work properly.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Gateway laptop won't turn on even after being charged or while plugged in.


Is any of the indicators glowing when you plugged in the laptop? If yes then try removing the battery and connect the laptop to the adaptor, and try to start it. If nothing changes or if no LED is glowing then make sure that the adaptor is okay. If you are sure that the adaptor is okay then you have a motherboard related issue

Laptop will not turn on.


plug it into the wall , most newer laptops will have a power boost while plugged into AC.
check your power cable receptical on the back of the laptop, these are notorious for getting loose.
check the cable on the ac adaptor, these are bad for getting breaks that you cant see in them (run your hand down the cable physically and fell for any breaks while unplugged, then do it again plugged in and watch for lights to flicker on the computer.
look for the power light on the laptop to come on when you plug the adaptor in. if you get a light on the adaptor and on the computer, then the adaptor isnt the issue.
the next step is checking the power button and power supply.. post what your results are here and we'll move to the next step if not resolved.
Regards!

Toshiba satellite pro a200 The laptop has stop recharging, i don't know if its the battery or the adapter or the actual laptop with the problem? please help!!!


First do not remove battery and use charger only. Lets start at the beginning first if you are using a UK three point plug check the fuse in the plug. Next some adaptors have a small green light on when connected to the mains. Another way to check the adaptor is, if you no someone with a multi meter (used to check voltages etc) get them to check if there is a reading from the end you plug into the computer should read 19volt. That would check your charging adaptor. Battery well if adaptor is charging then it is almost likely to be your battery.
If you have to replace the battery take it with you when you go for the replacement and ask them to check it in another laptop if they wont do this go elsewhere.
By what you say you have a fault with the adaptor.
Good luck
