Flashing lights with your AC and battery usually indicate a charging problem. Could be a bad battery, a bad power supply, or just need reset and/or reseat of your battery. And, yes, your system should work with the AC plugged in and the battery removed.
But, let's just try a system reset. Power off the laptop, unplug the AC from the unit, remove the battery, press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds, replace the battery and AC, power on, as soon as you see the Toshiba logo, press the 'F2' key to enter the BIOS Setup, in setup press 'F9' to load setup defaults, press 'F10' to save and exit, and then boot into Windows.
Please let us know what happens. Good luck.

Same problem being what? It won't start? It won't charge? What lights do you see? What noises if any do you hear? Does the fan spin? Does the hard drive light come on? What's your exact model number? Version of Windows?

I have a Toshiba Satellite Special Edition Model# PSAGCU-09S01S. Running windows 7. The laptop will not charge and at this point will not turn on. I replaced a bad charger (I tested it with a multimeter) and it still will not charge. The charger has a steady green light. The laptop will not turn on with with battery removed. There are no lights on the computer that are on (chargin light or plugged into power light) either with the battery or batter removed. The fan is not on and there are no indications that the computer is getting power at all.

Hey Mike, I noticed that I also have this orange blinking light and am never able to use my laptop without it being plugged in for very long. I'm not hearing any whirring noises other than the sound of the laptop fan being on, but I am getting the blinking orange light. I have previously used my computer while it wasn't plugged in but I guess all the battery juice ran out? It won't charge at all. Says it's plugged in but not charging.. would you say it's safe to assume that it's a faulty battery? Because I have had the blinking light since I got it, I just never really needed to unplug my computer to use it until today and it failed me. And can I get a replacement for free since it's been happening since I bought the computer?

did you try any/all of the suggestions provided by Peter? If so, what (if anything) happened?
what happens when you connect your computer to the power adapter (plugged into a power outlet) w/o the battery?

I have a NB255-N245 model with PA3835U-1BRS battery. By mistake, i connected a very similar power supply of higher voltage and the laptop wont charge any more. It worked fine while the battery had power, so the motherboard must be ok. I must recover the info. Is there a way to recharge the battery without using another healthy laptop???? the original power supply is ok. thanks
