    baffled
    I OWNED A TOSHIBA SATELLITE C655-S5128

    while using last week charger stopped working
    i fixed charger plugged it in- no amber light or green

    toshiba laptop when charger/ ac plugged in
    computer will work fine on ac power
    when charger plugged in computer detects charger and shows the icon on the battery icon
    computer detects battery and how much of a charge it has
    but it states charger plugged in but not charging
    the ONLY WAY I CAN GET CHARGER TO WORK AND CHARGE IS TO TAKE THE BATTERY OUT AND PUT BACK IN
    COMPUTER WAL LAH CHARGER WORKS AND CHARGES BUT ONLY TO 97 PERCENT FULLY CHARGED LIGHT (GREEN) DOESN'T COME ON

    CAN ANYONE GIVE ME A CLUE TO WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY COMPUTER
    &
    WHAT DOES TAKING OUT A BATTERY AND PUTTING IT BACK IN DO THAT MAKES MY CHARGER WORK I HAVE LOOKED AND LOOKED FOR A EXPLANATION TO NO AVAIL & THERE IS NO COMPUTER PLACE THAT WILL HELP YOU WHEN YOU HAVE NO INCOME THAT IS MONEY
    THANK YOU FOR ANY INFO YOU CAN OFFER~BMS

    If you take out the battery when the computer is totally shut down, and plug in the AC adapter and start the computer, does the light on the charger come on, some are green, some not....

    And, does the computer work normally if you are using just the AC adapter?

    I would not use a battery that charged only to anything but 100% and here is why> overheating can result and cause a fire, I have had one laptop battery explode and it is not a pretty scene.

    The AC adapter might also be damaged, but just answer the questions and will try to help further. I buy this type of Toshiba adapter all the time, and can point you to some reliable but not over expensive ones.
