    i have never had so much trouble with a laptop in my life! Aubrey can attest to most of my issues...i'd post this over in the computer support forum, but i'm too embarassed. i'm having power problems. now the freakin thing doesn't recognize the adapter. the light on the unit comes on, but the battery icon won't go away. i'm down to half a battery. not enough time to get everything off of it...pics, etc. help, i'm melting..................ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i never had a problem with Compaq tops. everyone said but the Toshiba.

    stay away from this garbage...........it sucks!

    I think your laptop was spun from threads extracted from brimstone...

    It sounds like your battery contacts are dirty to me. Have you tried plugging the computer in without the battery in and see if it comes on at all?

    take an eraser to the battery contacts to clean them up. Move the power plug to the computer around a bit, see if it makes contact (had one where it had to be violently pushed down to make a good contact once). Worst case the power port part on the computer might have loosened from the motherboard. That would not be good and I have seen this happen often.

    Have you tried it out with another power lead? Maybe it's faulty.

    I know mine bugger up after a couple of years sometimes, coz I treat them so badly.

    hehe, funny you should say you've always had trouble with toshiba. It's the only computer that's ever constantly worked for me. I love my toshi.
    My mum actually just bought a toshiba tablet laptop... you know where you can swivel the screen round and write directly on it. It's awesome.

    Yup, clean the contacts where it plugs in and/or try another power cord to see if that works. It really could be the power supply disconnected from the motherboard which someone could fix for relatively cheaply.

    Hey Jon...I have a Toshiba too, and after a few months my battery was draining like yours. I called the company and they shipped me another battery adapter, but it still wasn't working right, and the battery was draining so fast it was crazy, I called them again and I had to insist that I knew what was wrong with it b/c they wanted to ship me another adapter, I sent it in and the connect between the adapter and computer was messed up, supposedly it happens all the time with laptops not just Toshiba, since then I haven't had a problem...if it's under warranty, ship it off it you can bear to be without it ;)
