    Hi All,

    I am trying to find the solution of the problem:

    My laptop Equium A200 1V0 freezes up as soon as I plug in the AC power supply. I have already tried the new battery and new ac power adapter after reading some solutions from internet but so far no luck. It works fine without the ac plug'in but as soon as I join the power supply it freezes up and I have to force shutdown the machine which is not good.

    I would be very grateful to you if anyone can please give me the solution in detail to the above mentioned problem and also let me know the cause of this trouble as well?

    Thanks for reading this thread and for your effort.

    Regards,

    pat3l

    Hey,

    Do you use an original Toshiba AC/DC adapter? In my opinion the problem must be related to AC/DC adapter or mainboard itself…

    Important is that you use Toshiba parts only so test it with an original Toshiba AC/DC adapter. If it doesn’t work it seems that the mainboard is malfunctioning. Such serious hardware issues can only be fixed from an authorized service provider so you should contact the guys and ask for help. ;)

    Thanks for your reply, but there was nothing wrong with my old adapter, as I can still charge my laptop battery with my old adapter. I have used/ordered the original ac adapter from toshiba retailer with exact specification as it was on my old charger.

    Do I need to change the 'charging pin/lid' point situated inside the laptop? As I found that as soon as I insert my laptop's charging lid in to the pin point, within couple of seconds the laptop freezes up. Please advice!!

    thank you once again for your time

    > My laptop Equium A200 1V0 freezes up as soon as I plug in the AC power supply.
    Does it happen when OS is running?
    Start your notebook and enter BIOS settings. Connect AC adapter and confirm that the same will happen again.
    Please test it with safe mode too and post teh results.

    Fact is that Toshiba offers compatible AC adapters for each notebook model and if you use these adapters with the right part numbers they are OK. According notebook specification compatible AC adapter s 19V and if you have ordered new one with the same part number (for instance PA3468E-1AC3) it must works.

    Problem can also be power supply electronic placed on the mainboard. If these electronic components are responsible for this there is nothing you can do about it and you need professional help.
    > Do I need to change the 'charging pin/lid' point situated inside the laptop?
    This question is absolutely superfluous. Notebook owners must not and should not change anything (open the laptop). It can be done by authorized personal only.

    All you must do is to use compatible parts. Nothing more than that.

    Gentlemen,

    Any news on this problem ? I had hear a lot of people having the same problem. Was it a new update that affected all users? Toshiba should review this problem once a lot of users and owners are having the same problem.

    Thanks and regards.

    Hi, I have the same problem on a Toshiba Equium laptop. Having read up on this problem it seems that a capacitor inside the the laptop is to blame, possibly used for smoothing out the incoming voltage, you should find out more by typing the following into Google, 'Toshiba locks up when power supply '

    Its definityl not software problem… and this means that it could be ONLY hardware related issue. You tested battery and AC adaptor and this did not help… fine… this means that your motherboard it the problem.
