    My Toshiba Laptop is a Windows 7 with a recent (1-2 months now) Windows 10 update. (Satellite C675--S7200)

    A few moments ago I tried turning my laptop on without a plug, first time trying to turn it on at all today.
    It did not react to my pressing the power button so I plugged it in assuming maybe I left it on to die overnight yesterday. When I plugged it in it turned on once I pressed power, then I got started on planning out an essay I have to type and send online. As I changed my seating position I lifted the laptop to do so, unplugging the power cord from the laptop itself in the process and instantaneously it's off. Completely silent with a black screen and all. I plug it back in, turn it back on, it takes its time a little to come back on, then I see it's a full battery and try unplugging again.. same story. I google and tamper around with (basic) power and battery settings, still the same story. Again, as I am typing I am very still so I do not unplug the charging chord for it to instantly shut off on me again although the laptop is at full battery along with the green light indicating so next to the power light.

    Before this evening I have not touched any settings on my battery or display or power recently and I need this issue fixed because I am rather clumsy and do a lot of class work and essays on this computer at home.

    Chances are the battery is nearly dead. How long have you had the laptop ?

    EDIT : is the power connection on the laptop a good fit or is it loose ?

    I want to say about 7 years at least. It is pretty old, and my sister has the same one but I use mine much more often.

    Ok, can you try her battery in your laptop as a test ?

    Also if you missed my edit in post #2 is your charger connector a tight fit into your laptop ? Perhaps you could try your sister's charger too if it's loose ?

    When I switched batteries mine did not work in her laptop and same goes for the other way around. I bought a new hp laptop, but thank you so much anyways I figured the battery is dead as well. It won't even charge anymore.

    You're welcome. I hope you enjoy your new laptop.

    (Please mark this thread 'Solved' if you feel it is now).

    EDIT : a new battery might be all you need to use the Toshiba again.
