The charger for my toshiba laptop doesn't seem to be working. It says that it's charging but isn't actually doing so! Could this be a problem with the charger or the battery itself? Any help is appreciated!!

sounds like you'll be needing a new power unit, you can get universal ones as long as the connector is standard, Dell laptops use a proprietory connector but most other brands, like toshiba have standard ones.

you will need to check the output voltage and current rating, this will be printed on the supply

Voltage "x.xV" must be the same
Current "x.xA" must be greater or equil to your current power suply
Also note the polarity 'positive or negitave centre pin' it is very important that this is correct before connecting a replacement supply.

it may also be wise to test the current supply's voltage, as the problem could be in the power supply within the laptop (although this is less likley), if the supply has a light dose it come on at all??

The light does come on and it's says that it's charging the laptop but the battery percentage doesn't seem to get any higher. I'm not very computer savvy so I'll probably take it into a shop and see what they recommend! That's for your help :)

Does it boot into Windows?
