Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A205-S4607 Notebook PC ?

Toshiba Satellite a205 Battery Will Not Charge

\015 I have a computer that is about 8 mos old. Suddenly the battery will not charge when the computer is on, and even though it is plugged in the battery still runs down.I let the battery drain and turned the computer off, afterwards I could charge the battery completely. I used it, plugged in, for a few days and then my wife used it with just the battery for a few hours. Now that the battery was no longer fully charged, the same problem happened all over again.When the battery ran down, I took it out so the computer was only running on the charger. It shut down after five minutes and will now not run on the charger either, nor will it charge the battery even when the computer is turned off.Is this a problem with the charge cable or could it be something more serious?\015

Answers :

You did what all should not have been done. your battery works as a buffer between high surge of electricity which comes through electrical supply i.e. it protects your smps from burning up. From your current position it seems your smps fuse has blown. If they have given one or else your smps itself has gone. I'll tell you for your future usage of battery. Whenever you get any electronic equipment with chargable battery you should never switch it on unless and untill you have charged it for continuous 24 hours. Never try to run such equipment directly through dc or ac power. Hope your fuse has gone its not costly.
