Question about Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 Notebook
Hi, My laptop was plugged into the charger. Somebody got tangled up in it and the wires that go from the computer to the charger box pulled apart. I'm no electrician but am wondering if there is a simple fix for the wires or if I have to spend 90.00 for a new one. Please help!
YEP I HAVE THE HP DV1000 AND MY CHARGER WOULDNT WORK, I FOUND THE PROBLEM OUT AND NOTICED MY MAIN WIRE HAD FRAYED, I SIMPLY TWISTED AND TAPED MINE BACK, MAKING SURE THE WIRES WERE APART :D

If you can clearly identify which wire is which, simply strip off a half inch or so from each broken end, twist together, then solder or simply wrap twist with electrical tape. repeat till all wires are connected then tape into a single bundle. Zaak

While power off, disconnect the power adaptor.
Take off battery.
Plug the power adaptor back and try to start !
Is it running?
If yes, than the power adaptor is OK.
Now shut down and disconnect the power adaptor.
Put back your battery and start!
Leave it untill you 'empty' the battery.
Do not start your laptop.
Plug the power adaptor and do not start your laptop yet.
Is there a led idicator showing that the battery is charging ?
Does it shows when the battery is full charged (e.g. red/yellow=charging, to green/off charged)?
If not, leave it for at least 3 hours. After that, start your laptop (adaptor is plugged) and see if you still have an icon saying charging 99%.
If that is the case, then something is wrong with the battery.
Check your warranty, and replace it.
DO NOT OPEN the battery - nothing interesting you will find inside - nothing you can do !

SOURCE: Help with taking laptop apart
I have a toshiba satellite p105-s6024, and have had to take it apart multiple times. I have also taken apart the a105 series, and they both presented me with this problem. i finally found the solution when i took off the top panel that houses the power button (P105), or the panel with the speakers (A105). It can be snapped off with a small flat screwdriver at about 4-5 snap points along the border of the F-keys and the black trim of the top panel. under there you will find 3 screws for the keyboard, and four screws for the monitor hinges (2 per hinge). I hope this helps! if you need pics, i'll be taking it apart again soon, just e-mail me at [email protected]

This is a common problem with the Toshiba laptops. My freinds laptop did the same, the part you need to replace it with is hard to come by. Good luck!
