Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook ?

Freeze when power cord plugged in

\015 I've got an almost exactly the same problem, "almost" in that:1) My laptop is A205-S5812,2) The computer doesn't boot at all on AC, and on battery power it freezes immediately when the power cord is plugged in.That's to say, after pressing the power button I can hear the fan, HDD and DVD drive starting up, but nothing else; strangely enough - the DVD drive still does open and close, as well as react when a disc is inserted. And when the power cord is plugged into a running computer, the screen immediately freezes and no input seems to be accepted except hard shutdown.In other words, I'm down to using the laptop on battery power; however, the battery seems to charge properly at least when connected to AC.Actually, I'd noticed the problem with booting on AC several times before; however, after a couple tries the machine would eventually boot, and there were no problems at all when plugging the power cord in or out while the computer was running.I'm pretty sure this isn't an OS related problem, as I can't even get as far as the Toshiba splash screen, go into BIOS configuration or boot from a CD; in fact, I have Debian GNU/Linux installed on the laptop. I suspect it could be related to hardware wear, since my laptop did overheat a couple times before I gave it some cleaning up...Anyways, I suppose this won't be fixed without a visit to service; I'm pretty sure my warranty has expired already, so I'd like at least to vaguely know what to expect, i.e. how much cash/downtime...\015

I have the same problem with my toshiba. I am convinced that is the motherboard. I am still trying to find a solution or a way to connect the battery direct to a dc source but not sure how that will work out. I am thinking that there must be a sort of AC power controller on capacitor that can be changed.....
