    I was wonder if someone can give some feedback.

    My friend gave me Toshiba laptop w/out power adopter. I have an extra Toshiba power adopter that fit into this laptop. Everything works but if I unplug power adopter, the laptop shut off. It seem like the battery is not charging. Is it because of the power adopter or battery is defective?

    Thanks,

    Id go with battery.

    If the system runs with the power cord and not with the battery, that would be my uneducated first guess :D

    Battery or the battery connector problem.

    I agree with all. Typical overcharged and/or deceased battery.
