Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite Pro A200-EZ2204X Notebook ?

My Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 works fine if I use a battery charged on an identical machine, with the same mains charger. With the mains charger plugged in it either shows 'plugged in not charging' or 'plugged in charging' but the battery never charges. I always have to charge it on the second A200. If it's showing 'plugged in charging' with the mains connected and I remove the battery, the machine switches off immediately. Any ideas anyone? If it's a component problem, maybe I could use somethi
