Toshiba Satellite A135 Battery Issues!!!

\015 My Toshiba (a135) will not stay charged!*This is ONLY when the computer is turned off completely... I plug it in, it will charge for about 2 seconds, the orange battery light will turn off for about 3 seconds, then it will charge for anywhere from 5 seconds to SOMETIMES a full charge until the battery light turns blue. It usually takes me about 10 tries of plugging it in and unplugging it in for it to keep charging.*As soon as I turn the computer on, it uses battery power, even if it is plugged in. My task bar battery says "plugged in, not charging" I have replaced the battery, this is a brand new one I am using and it is having the same issues as the last battery.. what should I try now?!? This is extremely frustrating!\015

Here's what happened (The fix is at the end):
\015\012
\015\0128 months after buying my Toshiba A135 the battery began charging only intermittently. It also would not run without the battery. I put up with it for a month then took it back to Best Buy to get it repaired under warranty. They kept it over 2 weeks then gave it back saying it was the battery, which they replaced. One week later I had the same problem again. Back to Best Buy. The guy at the counter said it was probably the battery, they had encountered a lot of that. I said no, explained it, and gave it over to be fixed. 2 weeks later I got it back. They had reset the BIOS, no hardware replacement. I got it home and it was not fixed. I took it back the next day. They kept it 2 more weeks. They replaced the motherboard. I took it home and...you guessed it the same problem on the day I got it home!!! I took it back with one week left on my warranty. I don't remember what they replaced the last time but I think it was the motherboard again. I got it home (2 weeks later) and THE SAME PROBLEM on the day I got it home. So, the lesson there is that Best Buy computer maintenance SUCKS!!

\015\012I called Toshiba to try to get them to fix it for free, and out of warranty. After several frustrating minutes of conversation with an accented person who just kept telling me that my warranty was up, I hung up and called back and got an English speaking person. SHE was very helpful, listened to my problem, agreed to give me a one-time fix ticket. They paid for the postage. When I got my computer back it was mostly fixed.

\015\012The problem was the module at the back of the computer where the power cord plugs in. It was defective. Some wire or solder had gotten loose. They replaced it and it worked fine after that, except that when it goes into sleep mode it will not wake up. I fixed that by turning off all the sleep mode options. BTW, a friend of mine with the same computer is now having the same problem.
Are you sure that it's not a connection problem? That is, check to make sure that when you wiggle or push on the plug end it doesn't effect the charging. Have your computer on and running then unplug and plug in your adapter. also try wiggling it slowly to see if the charge/plugged in icon changes.

I'd also check to make sure you have consistent power. If you have it plugged into a power strip, try plugging it directly into the wall and vice versa. Also you may want to make sure your power supply is providing a consistent output. If you can, find a multimeter and check the plug end of the adaptor to make sure it's providing the same voltage as called for on the bottom of the Laptop (probably 16v). If there is much variability, maybe greater that +/- 1v that might be part of the issue. I'd also take a listen to the adaptor. I've had a few bad adaptors produce a slight buzzing sound.

It sounds like you are insinuating that there is no problem with the charging when the computer is turned on and THEN plugged in but maybe this isn't right.
