Question about Toshiba Toahiba Satellite A60 A65 Series 15 Inch XGA LCD Display Chimel N150X3-L05-V000042720 PC Notebook
Everything works on the laptop except if I am online or working on a word program and need to plug in the charger (power) cord because the battery is low the computer cuts off but will charge. If I am on the internetthe screen goes black and I lose connectivity. If I am on a word program it goes black and I cannot work further.
Here are two solution you can Try and I hope At-least one should work for you.
Solution 1)It sounds like your laptop may be going into Hibernate or Sleep mode as part of its Power Management scheme.
You can change the Hibernate and Sleep Settings in the Power Options: To do this: Place your mouse over the battery icon on the taskbar and right-click.
Choose "Power Options".
(You can also access the power options through the control panel: Start>Control Panel>System and Maintenance>Power Options.)
Under the plan being used on your computer, click on "Change Plan Settings".
Change the presented Settings as desired. If the settings you wish to change are not shown on this screen, proceed to the next step.
Click on the "Change Advanced Power Settings" link (near the bottom of the Window).
Scroll down the list to the "Sleep" entry and Expand it. Expand the sub-entries and change the settings as desired. Look at the rest of the settings on the list as make when the charger cord is plugged in the display go - 3452143920_64f89b486c.jpg "Ok".
SOLUTION 2) In the power setting there is a screen brightness bar. When on power set it all the way to the right on AC power and set it to the middle for battery power.
IF both the above will not work then I'll Suggest you to show your laptop to some local repairing center.

If you put strain on the jack (e.g. hang power adaptor from it whilst using or charging) then the socket on the mainboard can get hot due to poor contact and melt.
There is no way to fix this except to completely dismantle the laptop and fit a new socket - most likely a repair centre will charge you for a new mainboard.
Try another adaptor to see if that is the problem (broken wire in cord) - otherwise look closely at the socket in the notebook.

well to me either there is a issue with the power supply or the power cord. I have had a bunch of laptops where the power cords have to be a certain way or nothing will respond. this could be and since it is thinking that it is running in battery mode then it drains and then causes the laptop to turn off or go into hibernation due to the fact that the setting you set for the battery where probably on the "when plugged in" not the running off the battery mode.
it leads me to think that its the power supply because its the most common issue with this but I think that the best solution would be to either find someone that can test the power supply and find the break in the line or buy a new one to test ushally if you buy one from a store bigger named store outfit and use the power supply to test you can ushally get your money back or goto a local computer shop and get them to match up the power supply or see if they have a adaptor loose that can be used for testing.
These could be possible solutions but like I said I am almost 100% sure that its the power supply and not the laptop because even if the battery is not in the laptop the unit should still power up. on most laptops that is.
So that might be another thing that you would like to check but I highly doubt that it is that. because even a dead battery will allow the power adaptor to run on the laptop even if it dosent charge.
hope this helps and hope it works for you. let me know how you make out and if this made any sort of sence to you haha

I had the same problem with my HP laptop some years ago. you have a broken cable/cord and it is the part that is permanently attached with your power pack. If you look at the cord that plugs into your laptop, you can be able to see the faulty part of it. it is usually very flexible or swollen. You can either take it to an electrical technician to change that part of the cord. Your power pack is still ok, but have the technician to check it out first before you change the cord. Else, you may have to get another power pack. below is the full specification of the power pack that is recommended for your laptop.

Hello my friend,
Try to check your battery if the is it working normal cause sometimes the battery itself has the problem its either lost contact or the battery is not charging or not normal. also try to see if the the the sensor or that links the battery to the software which is responsible to the update of charging energy is functioning normal but this is a rare possibility try to focus on the battery or the connector or power cord.
Hope this will able to help solve you problem. If you need more assistance just reply to this post. Thank you
