They tested it for a few days then told me that they had to ship in a new ''board''. Now, I assume they mean motherboard?
What is the difference between a power board and a motherboard? Also, do you reckon it's worth getting it done? A temporary fix I've found for my machine at the moment (no way was I going without it for the month they said it'd take for the part to be shipped in), is to fiddle around with the AC adaptor until the "battery charging'' light comes on, then prop the plug up with a book or something.
This keeps it in place. The light has stayed on ever since I did that. Toshiba was very sketchy about giving me details. One of the zombies over there told me that ''they didn't give specific information re problems''..
