I have a toshiba satellite p845t. I have to charge the battery in another toshiba. Ac cord plugged in the computer says it is charging the light is on showing the ac cord connected. It is not charging any ideas
 
Hi,

Easiest way to distinguish if it's the battery or the AC Adapter is to swap both AC Adapter and battery with the other Toshiba laptop since you have 2 of them.

- First use the charger from the other laptop(working) to the one who's having problem.
- Second is to try the AC Adapter from the non working laptop to other working laptop and see if it does the same thing.
- Contact the manufacturer right away if it's the AC adapter as it may need a replacement if the same problem persist in the other working laptop.
