I tried the unplug/remove battery, hold down power button for 30 seconds/insert battery/plug in ac power on my Satellite A305.  Still does not start when pushing power button.

It sounds like your laptop may need servicing.

Re: plugged in not charging

thanks for this info. saved me money thinking i had to buy an adapter and/or battery. the cleaning of the battery terminals, both on the battery and the battery's slot as well as holding it with pins down for 30sec did the trick. :smileyhappy: also cleaned off the pin connector of the adapter and it's socket too. rich.
