My Toshiba Satellite wont boot if it is plugged in. It will freeze if you plug it in after it is running. What is causing this? Is my battery no good? Is cord no good? Has anybody seen this before? It will charge if it is off. I can use it until the battery dies and I have to charge it again.

Did you ever find a solution to this? I'm having the same problem.

My Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 wont boot when the power cable is plugged in, unless it's in safe mode. If it's running on battery, it will boot fine normally, but as soon as I plug the power cable in, it freezes. While on battery power, I've uninstalled EVERYTHING. If I boot windows on battery power, then plug it in, it's fine if I dont do anything, but as soon as I do something like open IE, try to shut it down, etc, it freezes.

So to summarise, everything has been uninstalled, safe mode and battery works fine, but plugged in freezes the laptop.

Anyone got any ideas?
