I have a toshiba equium a60 laptop. I havent used if for about 2 weeks and during this period it was on standby. When i came round to turning in on the other day it powered up for about a second and then switched off. Obviously the battery is now dead. However, when i plug the charger in, it does not charge and no lights on the machine turn on. There is not a problem with the charger because i tested it on another computer. Perhaps there is a problem where the charger connects to the back of the computer?? I really dont know!?!?

Re: Laptop wont turn on
You may check if the charger connection to the laptop is secured and doesn't have any problems. If the laptop doesn't show any sign of life,no led flashing, no nothing it is probably that your charge circuits or power on signal circuits are burned or broken. It sounds strange but they don't need a special motive to do that, they can simply die out. You will need your laptop dissasembled for this job and some knoledge of laptop electronics however. If you feel that this is not for you a service center can check the problem. Be carefull to specify exactly the simptoms you encounted. In worst case scenario they will asume your motherboard "dead" and propose a replecement. Be patient and try other service centers if this is the case.

pull the battery out and leave it out for a few minutes and then put it back in - if you can reach the bios then reset optimum settings - if there is a windows password then reformatting will get rid of that one.
This could be a few things. It could be a bad power cord not charging the battery or the machine. But it could also be various other things. The cheapest and easiest thing to try is a new power adapter.
Sound's like your connection to the A/C connector main's is going, inside the Pc this is.

This is a link to the download site for Toshiba drivers. Select the model of your laptop and click Go to retrieve a list of available drivers.
Before doing this, however, you need to be certain of the model number of your laptop. Equium is the make of toshiba desktop computers and A60 is the model number for a Toshiba Satellite laptop. Look on the bottom of your laptop for a label that will have the exact model number you need then select that on the website.
