Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

No charge on laptop

\015 Laptop battery will not charge, put a charged battery in and the cord light comes on but says plugged in not charging\015

Answers :

I agree. Batteries have a limited life. Also--once you have a new battery installed, be sure you let it discharge all the way (until the computer tells you it has to be charged--about 3% remaining) at least once a month. This will ensure you get the maximum life out of a battery.
Hello, It is my experience that Toshiba laptops have problems with the plug receptacle on the laptop may have come lose. This receptacle is attached to the motherboard and can cause some real problems. The face that it says it is charging is unusual.
Another factor is the age of the laptop. A old battery can be the cause. From what your saying I would consider this highly as it will show a charge but the battery is not holding a charge and not working. I cannot be certain at this point but my best guess is to replace the battery and they can be expensive.
