Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

After spilling wine on my wife's Toshiba NB100 it will not charge the battery. While the battery was charged everything worked well but now it has run down it will not receive a charge even though the charger is connected. Can parts be replaced or do I need a new motherboard?

Answers :

If you've spilled something on it, it could be anything. But you might want to take it to a PC repair shop (independent ones will most likely be cheaper than the Tech Guys/Geek Squad).

Sounds a bit like the battery has gone, or some of the internal charging components. But your best bet is to take it to a repair shop.

Hope you get it fixed!

I have a Toshiba 1405-s171 serial # 72154211P. The green power light would not go on, but the laptop would still function properly. Then I started to get a message something to the effect that the battery was running low---even when the battery was not installed. So I thought it might be the A/C power adapter and got a new one. The laptop functioned awhile and then got the same battery low-shutting down message. Now when plugged in and turned on there are no lights. When turned on the DVD
