Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite P15-S420 Notebook ?

Strange ac cord/power issues

\015 More strange power issues with a toshiba P15-S420: when i plug in the ac adapter both led's on the front end of the laptop light up (there are two, one showing that the ac cord is plugged in, and one showing either the battery charging [orange], or the battery full [green]. if i then open the power management it shows that the ac adapter is plugged in and the battery is charging. the problem occurs when the battery gets to 100% full. the power management will still show that the ac adapter is plugged in, but the battery is discharging. and the led that shows that the ac cord is plugged in stays illuminated, but the one that shows the battery either charging or full goes off (contradictorarily insinuating that the ac cord is not plugged in). any insights?\015

Toshiba m45 S265. Been having power up and down related issues. Started with it not responding properly to shutting down the laptop from the desktop. It would get to the windows shutting down screen and freeze. Powering down by holding the power button down worked fine. Then a new issue started where if you ran the laptop battery down to powering off, it would do strange things when you would try to power back up. The Toshiba flash screen would come up but only half size and offset to the left.
