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. Smiley Happy also cleaned off the pin connector of the adapter and it's socket too. rich.
