My Toshiba satellite has been having charging problems for the last two months. Last year I had to buy a replacement charger. A Targus to be exact(got it from office max). So a couple months ago when I was on my computer my and my power light had multi colored lights going off. So at that point I could only charge it when it was completely off. I can't even charge it now at all I bought a new battery (thinking that was the problem) and tried it out. No it didn't work. I don't know if its my charger or something within the system. I would want to find out before I spend anymore money on it. Thank you.

Hi monster26 :D sorry to hear you are having this issue with your laptop.

my power light had multi colored lights going off.

The DC jack at the rear of the laptop sounds like it has come away from the MB.
Unfortunately unless you are competent at dismantling the laptop and then soldering a
new jack in place it is a task best left to a tech who already has all the equipment.
Here is a video showing a repair/replacement of the DC jack (note the increased speed
of the video)
Post what model Satellite the laptop is and we can look for a disassembly guide for you.

Some of the Toshiba laptops had their warranties "extended" because of this issue. You may be able to get this fixed under warranty. It's worth a call.
